    Have you set up your profile and goals on MFP? Start there and eat that amount of calories.

    I recommend these helpful posts too:

    If you've entered a weight loss rate already in MFP, just aim for the number they give you, no need to go lower.

    Did you overeat on the weekend because you've been hungry during the week?
    It can be better to choose a slower weight loss rate and eat more, and then perhaps you won't overeat during the weekend because you won't feel as deprived.

    If you picked the option "lose 2lbs a week" then your estimated calories to maintain weight are 2411, for a day with no exercise.

    If that's accurate (sounds entirely believable) then ANY NUMBER under 2411 will result in weight loss over time, the size of the deficit changes how fast you lose. But beware it also changes how hard you make things for yourself.

    It looks like you only started in April but are already struggling, don't fall into the trap of making your weight loss so hard you doom yourself to failure.
