    I don't get what this will tell you.

    My husband and I do the same long run on a Sunday. He will burn 900+ calories and I'll only burn around 500. He can eat up to 4000 calories that day while I get 2300.

    I'm maintaining. I eat about 1,900 calories a day. I run 6 days a week, usually 30-90 minute sessons, and either do cross-training or rest on the other day.

    1600 a day. I do Zumba 4 times a week and Body Pump 1-2 times a week. I try not to go over 1600 calories but it's not a big deal if I do since I get so many exercise calories. I'm 5'9", F, SW 196, CW 168, 44yo.

    On average I'm eating around 2100 calories a day. I do one hour of exercise on my bike (push myself to the limit) and do about 10 000 steps a day. I have about a 500 calorie a day deficit, I've lost 4 kilos (about 9 pounds) so far.

    Don't count anything.
    I run about a marathon each week (40-50 km)
    I have lost on average 0,8 kg the last 33 weeks, and have lost weight every single of those 33 weeks.
    Have about 6 kg left to lose.

    I alternate between Insanity, speed intervals on the treadmill with 5.7 incline, and lifting. Typically I earn 300-400 and eat them all. That earn also includes all daily steps because my fitbit is synced.

    I net an average of 1205 calories a day weekly; my goal with MFP is 1210. I do strength training and low intensity steady state cardio 3 days a week, HIIT 3 days a week, and rest 1 day a week. And I have a cheat meal every other week. Ive lost about 25 pounds in about 6 weeks

    I run between 3-5 miles 3x a week, 5-7 miles once a week, and do Orange Theory 2x a week. Sometimes I swap out one run for a spin class. I'd say my average burn is 450 calories when you average it all together.

    I eat between 1350-1600 calories a day (total, that's not net.)

    Base 1520. Usually 1475-1650. I burn about 300-400. Right now, I've lost 37 lbs, usually 2/week. I also have 87 lbs to go to get to goal, so right now, this is fine. I've been reading various threads in the forum and I know that when I get to within 75 lbs of goal I will need to shoot for 1.5 instead. (I told MFP I wanted to lose 1/week, but for the first few months, I didn't eat back any exercise calories. Now that I'm exercising enough that my net is below 1200, I do try to eat some back.)

    ETA: As for exercise, my goal right now is to walk at least 1 hour/day at a leisurely pace (I usually do more like 2) or 40 minutes on a bare-bones Nordic skier. I say 'bare bones', because I recently found out that some models let you adjust the resistance. Mine doesn't.

    Last month, I added resistance training. I'm using a medium-resistance fitness band and working on biceps, lats, and triceps. (Currently doing 3 sets every other day of 15/15/12 reps. When I was getting started, though, I couldn't do more than 12 of the first two and 8 of the triceps reps, so I am definitely seeing progress!)
