The smaller I get the less I burn?

So the more weight I lose, the less I weigh, the less calories I burn doing everyday activities?
I used my online calorieburn calculator and if I walked 4 miles in an hour( like I did today and was very proud of!! :( ) I'd only burn 200 calories. walking up to the 10th floor of my office only burns 100 calories. My hour pilates class burns me about 125...and the treadmill for an 40 minutes at 6mph is about 200. I dont have the time to walk 4 miles every day , and I'm just getting in shape enough to run 6mph on the treadmill....But not for 40 minutes straight yet! how can I still get an extra burn without having the extra time? I wish I could put all my time and effort into weightloss but I have a job and I'm in school and I have everyday responsibilities.I'm burning less so I need to be doing more...but I dont have more time in my day, its hard enough to squeeze one of these things in every day. I dont mean to whine...I just dont want to get stuck in a rut. would more weight training be a good solution even if it means sacrificing some of my cardio time? I have 40 minutes every day. what would you do?

START WEIGHT TRAINING!

Yes, it is true that the less you weigh, the less you burn. Also, as you get more fit, your body will burn less calories even doing intense exercise because it adapts.

Luckily, muscle burns calories all day long, and fat doesn't. Cardio and dieting can even cause your body to LOSE muscle, which is why when people stop dieting the weight comes on so fast, and people often gain back more weight than they lost.

I give a big enthusiastic YES to weight training 2-3x a week and cardio 3-4x a week. If you want to make it an extra burn, do sets of 60 seconds of weight lifting with 30 seconds of cardio, like jumping jacks, in between. You WILL see a difference in your body within 2 weeks.

I love to weight lift. I try to lift 3-4 times a week, and when I do I go HEAVY. My opinion is if you can do jumping jacks in between your sets, you are not lifting heavy enough!
Here is a great website for weight lifting, it will help you learn the basics, and it is geared toward women.

Unhealthy?

From my rough calculations on other websites, to get those kinds of outputs at that level of exercise you must weight somewhere between 70 and 100 pounds. I've checked quite a few places, so either the calculator you're using is off-base with other calculators, or you are very tiny already, and further weight loss is not recommended.

The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working.

According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
