    currently 1846 to lose approximately 0.8 lbs per week (my maintenance is around 2300)
    121.9 trend weight
    120.9 recent low scale weight

    Usually I just use MFP's numbers (1300 NET at my current weight) and let my Fitbit adjust MFP's calories up or down as needed. Recently I've been experiencing some issues with the link between the two that have made the adjustments unreliable, so I used IIFYM calculator to come up with a steady calorie amount to aim to average (it actually spit out a number slightly lower then my avg total intake in Feb where I lost 0.7 lbs per week).

    1500, I eat back some of the exercise calories on lifting days but generally not on cardio days. 5'10", 209.6 lbs (as of this morning), lost just over 15 lbs since February.

    You know what's funny? I hardly ever actually eat that much. I've been trying to get close, but I'm usually around 300-500 calories short. :#

    1760 is my MFP setting for losing a pound a week. Started at around 231 pounds and lost around 5 pounds so far. So working nicely and isn't so drastic that I feel hungry. Got a lot more to go :)

    My 1 pound a week goal gives me 1550 calories. I eat 1200-1500. I usually stay lower, around 1200, just cuz I'm not hungry, but will eat all my calories if I'm hungry enough too. I don't eat back exercise calories
