I use this: http://1percentedge.com/ifcalc/

It has your BMR at around 2k. Assuming sedentary activity level, it's about 2500. You'd probably lose a pound a week (at least for a while) eating 1900-2100 a day and you'd need to stick to your original goal of 1400 to lose two pounds each week. In general, I think these calculators have an upward bias for people who easily gain weight, so I wouldn't put a lot of stock in the numbers they provide. Your best bet is to eat a consistently low number of calories per day that is sustainable to your lifestyle and hope that the scale cooperates. If it doesn't, lower the calories consumed by a bit more and/or do more cardio.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

In the history of mankind the only people that having been able to lose weight and keep it off, have all exercised.

10000 steps a day is achieved by walking. Walking is great, that's how you see all the great free things in life (parks, monuments, rivers, scenic roads, etc etc). Walking is not strenous and uberfats burn significant calories from doing it.
I mean I would love to be proven wrong. Get an activity tracker, get in 10000 steps per day and let's see the new maintenance.

1800-2000 is a great start for an uberfat. The issue here is that eating bad is composed of two very powerful forces. Habit and addiction. It's clear there is a sugar addiction involved here. And of course people just get used to eating a certain amount. So the first step is to lower the calories reasonably and slowly get used to the lower calorie consumption. Your body and mind eventually are complaced with the lower calorie consumption.

While it also can be done with going extreme, such as 1400. Good luck with that, too brutal. I tried that for weeks and it was awful.

MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

I have only been able to hit the 1400 cal mark once since I've began. I'm going to weigh myself on Friday and work backwards with the amount of calories I consumed to get a more accurate BMR. If it is closer to the 2400mark I will continue at 1700cal/day, if not I will try to drop my calories. Suger is my addiction, but I'm now almost going full days without super compared to having sodas all day a couple of weeks ago. I just really need something for energy! I'm going to start taking a multivitamin and B12.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

I don't think weight is precise enough a measurement to extrapolate BMR from.

Why do we need an accurate BMR anyway? Less calories = more weightloss no matter what we figure your BMR is.

Maybe, but I'm talking about maximizing her gains per unit of effort put in right now. The more absolute effort she puts in, the harder it will be for her to stick to. At this stage of the game she stands to achieve more through diet than exercise, so she should focus on that more, while building the foundations for the exercise regime that she will be doing a year from now to keep the weight off. For me, this would entail walking a track 30 minutes per day at first, and escalating the length of that walk, and eventually the frequency and intensity. But that's going to constitute a tiny percentage of her deficit at first, so diet reigns supreme.

You might have a point that 1400 is extreme, but OP's goals are fairly extreme. It is tough for a female to lose almost 3 pounds per week the way she wants to. Not possible at 1800-2000. I'd say that 1400 is less extreme for a female than it is for a male of the same height, who would have higher energy needs. I've done 1600/day for the last 3 months and I eat very well, averaging over 100g protein a day, going out to eat at restaurants constantly. It just requires paying attention.

No you don't. Only tracking your intake matters. If you are not losing enough then eat less.

Re: MLYLT learns to love herself and changes her life!

That does look good.

Here's a low cal salad I really like that's packed with flavor:

Spinach, red onion, tomato, artichoke hearts (not necessary), green olives and feta cheese, seasoned with red wine vinegar and olive oil, squirt a dash of lemon juice and sprinkle some pepper.

You'd be amazed at how much flavor olive oil can have as a dressing by itself.

Hey Missus,

Your doing really well. Look I can't talk about setting targets but it's probably not the best thing to do about setting weekly targets...There is so much variance in weigh ins it's better to look at the long term trend than to aim for 3kg this week for example.

If you look at my weight loss...There are some weeks I've lost 400g and the next nearly 3kg.As long as it keeps going down that's what should matter...

Or to use a metaphor, if you keep making the optimum decisions, long term would will make winner, variance notwithstanding.
