    I have a similar problem in that caloriecount calculators such as mfp seem to think I should be eating more calories than I am... and yet, I don't feel hungry and think my daily food intake is quite well and balanced!!

    From what I can see your food diary sounds good!!

    Congrats on the non-scale victory! Fitting in to size 14 trousers is my next mini-goal. My 16s are starting to get loose so fingers crossed it'll happen soon hehe.

    Thanks I was quite suprised as i thought they would either not fit yet or a least be very tight but they weren't so im afraid im going to have to put it down to being a big 14;)

    It's always a good feeling sometimes the number on the scales is hard to represent how we have actually changed In our bodies clothes are a great way to see the inches going and it's a real confidence booster when you go down a size x

    I think if you stick with just calorie counting and are managing to lose then it's all good. Plenty of time to include exercises and figure out how to track what you burn etc. I use an online calorie counter that also has a bit for activity logging and gives you a rough estimate of what you have burned.
