    The messaging system does not appear to be working at the moment (not sure if it's just me, or site-wide) so feel free to add me, if you would like. I've only been on MFP for 10 days now, so I have no friends. Don't need much interaction (I'm not a terribly "social" person) but it's nice to have someone to be accountable with/supported by.

    Im on 1200 too. Just "restarted" after ballooning over the last 10months. Find it easy to stick in the 1200, usually 1000-1100 a day unless cardio then it is hard for me to stick to it. 162cm and 10kg to shed...

    Feel free to add me as well!
    I aim between 1200-1600 a day depending on if I exercise or not.

    I'm finding it incredibly hard and usually end up in the higher end of my calorie range, so it would be nice to have a reason to be accountable ;)

    just started again, going to stick to 1200, with active workouts (varying throughout the week)

    only problem is I'm a chef, and it's pretty difficult counting those pesky calories when you have to taste things constantly for work....just going to try hard to limit tasting without compromising my good cooking!

    Lucky thing about being a chef, knowing about good ways to make healthy food interesting!

    add me! :)

    I'm on 1200 also, but I find it really hard to stick to that number in December. What do you all do with exercise calories? Do you eat them back, or use them to even more reduce consumed calories? And do you track calories burned by walking. I live in small town, and I don't use car, instead I walk.

    My goal is 1200 - 1300 per day. I'm 36, 5'0" (152.4 cm) and weigh 120.4 lbs (54.6 kg). My goal is 105 lbs (47.6 kg).

    I'm set at 1200-1300 per day, but I've been struggling to hit it lately. With so little to lose and being short, there is so little room for error, so I do not eat back exercise calories. If it was an active day and I'm truly hungry, I'll maybe go up to 1400, but I really don't want to wipe out the small deficit I make!

    I hear ya! I'm 5'2" & eat my exercise calories but I really don't think I need to in order to feel full...I just want to ;)

    Well I'm a bit different I guess. I've been at 1200 cals for over a year and was no longer seeing progress.

    Plus, it was becoming more and more difficult to stick to that.

    So I shifted my focus from weight loss to building muscle mass. New muscle will burn more calories while at rest, making it easier to stay lean. It might also be the only way I get rid of stubborn fat.

    So in order to build muscle, I'm on a 2200 calories diet and weightlifting workout plan. Almost 3 weeks in now and I've honestly never felt better. It was really time for me to make that switch. I look forward to see the results once I'm done with the bulk and start shredding. :)

    This is my first post but it's so good to see other people at the same number too! I'm only 5'2", the smallest of almost everyone in my life, and they have been pressuring me to eat more, saying that 1200 is unhealthy. I was starting to feel like I was doing something really wrong, but am delighted to see I'm not alone :)

    Would love to add new support friends, especially those with tips and advice for being healthy as a short girl. Am currently 123, aiming for 110.

    I'm pretty good at staying in the 1200 calorie range! I was told to keep my meals late so then i wouldn't eat that much at night when i'm chilling around.

    I'm in the 1200 range too! Weekdays are easy, but it's very hard for me to stay under 1200 on weekend nights! With so little room to spare, even one glass of wine and a dinner out throws my diary off. Would love to add new friends to help each other stay accountable :)

    I'm currently at 1200 calories with an open diary, feel free to add me ladies! Yesterday was absolutely awful and I ate about 2,500 calories (donuts, fried food, beer, sushi... omg). I've been using MFP on/off for a few years actually but I recently started back up last week. That was actually the first "bad day" I bothered to log and it was honestly an educational experience to see how fast everything added up.

    Some stats: 21 yo, 5'5
    HW - 158 lbs
    SW - 151
    CW - 149
    UGW - 125
    Typically throughout high school I would fluctuate between 135-145, so I'd love to get back in that range at least.

    Started my health journey a few months ago and have lost 12kg so far. I'm on 1200 but generally consume under or around 1100. I have always been on the heavier side for my body, but currently the lightest I can remember. My main goal is to work towards getting rid of the excess fat and lean up. Feel free to friend/add me :) Its nice to see so many people in the same boat.
