Hello, My name is Annie. I've lost approximately 21 lbs over the last year on a previous plan. I'm at a plateau. Now, I have several large life stressors happening at the moment, but I'm determined to push through. I want to try something different, to see if I can't break this plateau.

I would hope you'd be eating more than 1200!
Even with MFP method - that 1200 is ONLY when you do no exercise.
MFP is trying to teach a life lesson about weight maintenance.
You do more, you eat more.
You do less, you eat less (that's the kicker for most).
In a diet, a tad less in either case.
So you have to decide what system to use.
MFP method with Fitbit synced, and changing goals each day. This is good if workouts are iffy, and daily activity (which Fitbit sees - but that TDEE chart doesn't at all).
You merely have to set the deficit to a reasonable goal, which is what the whole idea is about - reasonable.
Or average weekly TDEE method, and same amount eaten daily. This is good if workouts and activity level are about the same. You can use Fitbit to get a clue here - but you unsync it from MFP.
Which style would you prefer?
And do you receive the weekly emails from Fitbit about amounts burned on average?
And what Fitbit model, and what are your workouts?
(it's bad estimate of calories on some combo's)
As to what appears to be a high TDEE.
Have you ever logged how much you ate that caused weight gain - or maintaining at higher weight?
And were you even exercising then?
Until you've done that - probably no idea how high your TDEE is now - what do those Fitbit emails say?

I am Michelle. I have lost 95 Lbs, but my doctor wants me to lose another 15 or so more lbs. I am now at 170 to 173( my weight fluctuates) and the goal weight is 155. I have until November before my 1 year follow up. I think I did well to lose 95 Lbs in 8 months, but the last bit of weight is a struggle.
