Am I doing this right? Question re: Fitbit Calorie Adjustments

I currently have MFP set to lose 2lbs per week and my activity level to sedentary, so I get 1,200 calories per day. However, my FitBit will generally give me an extra 300-400 calorie adjustment a day, so, on a typical day, I eat around 1,400 or 1,500 calories.

I’ve noticed that if I change MFP to lightly active, it gives me 1,340 calories, but the Fitbit calorie adjustment is less, but averages out to about the same calories as if I set it at Sedentary and then get a larger Fitbit calorie adjustment.

So, do I just trust the FitBit adjustment and go with that? Or should I be sticking closer to the ‘actual’ calorie goal?

It’s been about 3 ½ weeks now and I’ve lost 8 pounds, so I’m meeting my 2lb/week goal. I’m just not sure whether that’s because it’s still kinda new though and the weight comes off faster at the beginning.
