    Hi to you both a welcome to CC.

    Well done on your losses so far :)

    I tend to eat below 1600 calories a day. I usually have about 1400 otherwise I tend to find that I just eat to make up the extra calories. You could do a google search to see how many calories you're suppose to eat, but I'm a bit dubious of the results, because one site told me to eat 1900 calories!

    Hope you both find that CC works for you. I look forward to following your journey xx

    i do indeed use it, but its not always accurate so i check things on it agianst the packaging but its a good site!
    You can find out how many calories you should be on on there or you can use a bmr calculator which willt ell you how many calories you burn a day without doing anything, if you are sedentary most of the time you times the number by 1.2 (not sure if you are active like you, but sure you can find it on here) then you -500 cals each day and thats how much you should be on etc.

    I dont want this to sound rude but i cant believe you are 40! For some reason i was convinced you where 20 something you certainly look it in your little picture!?!

    Hi Cherry - hope you're doing OK and had a good weekend. You have done really up to now though you know - far more consistent than I have ever been!

    I'm joining you too! I've been using the myfitnesspal site over the weekend and I've found it really good - it's as easy to input into as the WW site anyway. I've been yo yo-ing on WW for ages and not really getting anywhere - I think I'm just bored with it and not really focussed! I'm not knocking WW at all, I'm just fed up of working out points.

    I'm aiming for 1200 per day.

    Good luck!

    Lesley

    Hi Lesley :) , I went on myfitness pal and it told me 1200 cals I thought that was low for me as I'm 14st 13.5lbs ? My cal book says 1500? Eek don't know what to do?
    I think we are doing the best thing even just to try as it's better than gaining it hey :)
    I can't get online until tomorrow on phone so will check myfitness pal again

    hope we can all support each other , good luck Hun ;) xx

    MFPal says I should be aiming for 1200 too?? I dont get it hehh. I'll try 1200 for a week and see if the scales shift. Ive imputted what ive had, changed my mind about dinner so imputted the new meal im gonna have and it comes to 1057 calories altoghether for the whole day, leaving 143 calories left. Do you reckon Im ok to stick at that if Im not hungry later? Im all confused cos Im used to thinking of food as points and not calories :(
