Step ranges for activity levels please VoraciouslyRead — Oct 25, 2017 10:44PM PDT

Hi! I've been counting calories for 50 days with no weight loss while according to the MFP projections I should be losing 1 1/2 lbs per week. I understand these are just guidelines, but it would be very helpful to get a step range for the different activity levels. I have seen this explanation before:

Sedentary: Spend most of the day sitting (e.g. bank teller, desk job)
Lightly Active: Spend a good part of the day on your feet (e.g. teacher, salesman)
Active: Spend a good part of the day doing some physical activity (e.g. waitress, mailman)
Very Active: Spend most of the day doing heavy physical activity (e.g. bike messenger, carpenter)

But what I need is actual step ranges for each category, otherwise I don't know which to pick.

Hi Logan, I'd also like to request that you include a truly sedentary setting for people in wheelchairs and people who have been injured.
