i'm on 1678 a day... am losing around 2lb per week on that and don't feel like i'm being deprived really x
It changes everyday.
One day, it'll be as low as 1,000, and then next it'll be as high as 2,200 calories (especially on days where I'm very active).

I don't try to stick to a specific number anymore, but I do like to know how many calories I eat a day (OCD thing I guess). Overall, I eat what I want, because I'm trying to maintain my weight at the moment. It's taken me a few weeks to realise that I don't care about losing any more weight, and that I shouldn't be dieting.
I'm like Marshkipan, I range from about 1000 to 2000 a day, I average about 1300 a day at the end of the week. I do two to three exercise classes a week and lose on average 2lbs a week.
I was just thinking about posting this and noticed you already had!

I'm aiming for around 1300 a day, it's only day three for me and doing okay so far!

I think it depends a lot on how much weight you have to lose as to what amount of calories you should aim for.
