Check in iUcalorie that you’ve stuck to your step and movement goals. Since your target calories are calculated based on the level of activity you indicated. Have you had the expected level of activity?
If the above is correct. Consider lowering your daily calorie goal a bit to increase the calorie deficit and see how your body responds.

It is advisable to lose weight gradually, stable and controlled. Our body will adapt and we must enjoy the process. We should not feel that we are restricting ourselves in food, or that we are making a great effort to reach the goal. If we feel that it is difficult for us, it is very likely that it will not be sustainable over time and that is not what we are after. At iUcalorie we believe in changing long-term habits for a healthier life.
Therefore, if that happens, analyze what is happening in the iUcalorie charts.
As we indicated in the previous section, check.
