    Thanks for the "compliment"! Turns out I got tired of not losing weight so I decided to "maintain." I am sticking with 123lbs as my goal for now, but will slowly try to move towards 120. I need all the encouragement I can get. But I am feeling good, so thank you. And you look like you've been doing great for a few weeks now. How are you feeling with it all? Keep it up!

    yes yes, you want to make sure you're not undereating, cause a) you can't lose weight as easily that way, and b) you'll go crazy and binge later! here's the math someone i trust on gyminee did for me-- i actually never ate below 1500 though so that i wouldn't fee deprived: "You have 5 pounds to lose in 8 weeks. That’s a good amount of time for that kind of goal. Your BMR (adjusted for activity level is 1680). To lose that 5 pounds, you will need a net loss of 17,500 calories over that 8 week period. That’s 2187.5 calories per week. Divided by 7, that’s a daily deficit of 312.5 calories per day. So, you could eat 1680 calories every day, and burn 312.5 calories via exercise every day. In any case you need your net calories to be 312.5 calories BELOW your BMR (whether that is through exercise or lower consumption). Because you are already pretty thin and you have 8 weeks, I would recommend that you use a zig-zag approach. So you eat a maintenance amount of calories (1680) on days you exercise, and on your rest days eat 1368 calories. You basically need a net loss of 3500 calories per pound you wish to lose."

    Hey there Mary, One thought from looking at your log. Isn't 1200 cals very very low? I have always gone on the idea that we should not eat below 1500 cals. Which means that if you want to have a net calorie intake of 1400, you gotta eat 1500 and burn 100... or eat 1600 and burn 200, for example. Anyhow, just a thought. That's what worked for me, at least. My problem now is that I am having a hard time not adding in more and more cals... my first three months on Daily Burn I was so good at sticking with it, and now my mind wants to cheat more often. I am faithful to logging, though, so I hope that will help pull me back on track. Now I am aiming for a net calorie intake of 1650 for "maintainance" until I am ready to go back down to 1400 to lose my last 3 lbs. Ciao! -Passionfruit
