    What’s your stats: Scorpio, born in the year of the Rabbit.
    Age: 25
    Height: 5'3", give or take .5
    Daily Calorie intake: set to 1825 as of this week, was 1725 before (averaged 1690 or so for the past two weeks)
    Workouts: Strength training 3 days a week (30-40 minutes each) and then I try to get 1-3 hours of cardio, but that doesn't always happen.
    Weight loss goals: 20% bodyfat, which I'm hoping will happen around 135-130; body fat calcs say I'm at about 26% now.

    Ht: 5'3"
    Wt 199

    I'm following the MFP recommendation of 1200 calories per day. I 'cheat' every Sunday because we eat out after church. I have lost 31 pounds in 3 1/2 months. My exercise is mainly walking 30-40 minutes about 4 times a week, but also do some arm exercises with 2 lb weights. Sometimes I ride stationary bike instead of walking. According to what everyone is saying, I should be eating more calories, but I am scared to do that. Especially since I don't do an extreme amount of exercising.

    About 1400-1600 a day
    Just started doing cardio and weights about 4-5 times weekly (about 20-30 minutes at a time), lots of walking, some swimming, some aerobics
    I'm at 143 right now, I want to get down to between 115-125 where ever I end up feeling comfy really.

    1485 + eating back most exercise calories
    Run 3x week, Strength 2x week
    Very close to goal/about 5 lbs away

    I calculated my TDEE at no exercise level and took that number minus 20% for my calorie goal. Since I calculated it without exercise, I eat most of my exercise calories back.

    ^^Same height and same calories :) But i am 29

    Calories per day: 1200-1500, only around 1500 when I work out otherwise 1200.

    I've lost 52 pounds so far and have 31 more to go. I am 5 foot 8 inches tall and started out at 223 pounds. I work out 3-5 days a week and do a hr of cardio each of those days and sometimes do some weights.

    Height: 5'3"

    Calorie Intake: 1200-1400 +exercise cals (sometimes more if I exercise rigorously or feel like eatting more)

    Workout: While at work I do planks, side planks, back extentions, bridge, squats, neck and shoulder stretches, various different arms curls (both with 8 lbs free weights and resistant bands with handles) : I work in an office and sit on butt all day so I shut my door 3-4 times a day and workout a little. I also take a 35 mins walk at lunch every day. Then I'll go home at night and walk with my daughter in the stroller and dogs for 60-90 mins and play with my kiddo outside or at the park occasionally after that.

    Weight goal: started at 190, currently at 135, goal weight 123-127.

    33 years old
    1200 calories + exercise
    Bootcamp 2-3 x / week
    Spinning 3 x / week
    I have about 9 more pounds to lose. I have been as low as 117 pounds before by giving up sugar and carbs. However, when I did it before I had ZERO cheat days for about 4 months! I lost weight for my wedding and we totally psycho about it. Now I just want to get to back to my "20s weight" of 125, which is healthy and looks good on me. Another thing I do is only claim 300 calories/workout on MFP. That way I am not eating all of my calories back. Perhaps you should try that too? Everyone feel free to add me!

    Age: 37
    Height: 5'4"
    Calories: 1400 (somtimes less, sometimes more)
    Workouts: Walking/Jogging 4-5 times a week
    Goals: Lose 10 more pounds and tone up

    I'm currently jogging/walking 5k 4-5 nights/week for weight loss and building endurance. I don't usually eat back all the workout calories, but sometimes it depends on how hard I exercise and how many calories I've burned. There are times when I just have to eat more and my body never fails to tell me this.

    I have considered trying the Insanity workout to tone up and lose more inches. But I know I will have to up my caloric intake if I do something that intense.
  • I'm 120lbs I consume around 2000-2300ish a day and I'm 5'4

    Daily Calorie intake: While trying to lose.....1200
    Workouts: Light weights 3xweek, low-impact aerobics 4xweek
    Weight loss goals: lose 25 lbs, from 160 to 135

    ONLY 1200 cals, NOT plus exercise cals. When I follow this regimen I lose about 2 lbs a week.

    You're doing it wrong.

    Height 5'6

    Daily Calorie intake - bare minimum is set to 1750 however I'm averaging around 2000 on non running days and that plus whatever I burn on my running days.

    Workouts - at the moment I'm only running however I plan to start strength training soon.

    Weight loss goals - Another 15lbs or so. The goal weight in my ticker was really just a random number I had picked last year and I'm not sure yet if I want to lose that much. I started at 234 and am 148lbs now
