To start here are my stats:
Height: 5’ 6”
Started MFP 3/21/19 at 182
GW: 140 (ideal goal weight for me is 135)
(I used SAILRABBIT to calculate)
So, here is why I am disappointed. At 140 my BMR is going to be 1202 kcals a day and my TDEE set at sedentary will be 1442. When I get to goal weight I am still going to be eating the same 1200 calories (+/- 200 kcals) that I have been eating for the past 8 months. Meaning I will be on a diet for the rest of my life. To me that is disappointing. I am sure there are many other older folks on here in the same predicament. How did you mentally get on board with the fact that you are now restricted to such a small amount of calories a day in order to maintain your weight?
