Once you meet goal - calorie intake?

LastBulletLastBullet Member Posts: 2 Member Posts: 2
Hi all,

I am new - this is day two for me and I already feel great. I am focusing on "today" and my mini goals, but my bf keeps asking me what my calorie intake will be when I reach goal. I keep saying I don't know, I am not there yet. I am focusing on little goals, first 5%, then 10%, etc.

To get him stop asking me so I can focus on my mini goals rather then the main goal...

I am 4'9 and 133, my goal is 110.
I am at 1200 calories right now.
I haven't started exercising yet, but will eat those calories earned.

Would I continue at 1200 or would it increase?

Thank you.

    Ha ha ha. I had just signed my boyfriend up and I see I logged that question as him.

    To check what your "maintain" calories will be, go to My Home, Goals, click "change goals", and follow the directions from there. Then, on the page where it asks "what is your goal?" - 1 lb, 1.5 lb, etc/week, put it on "maintain current weight" and see what it says.

    Hope that helps!
