Thanks for sharing more: On 1800-1900 calories (as you initially planned) these would be an estimate for: Carbs: 203-309grams Protein: 60-166 grams Fat: 40-74 grams
GOOD LUCK Dietitian Becky

I believe it was about 2100 to start and as i loss i would lower it. 2 years ago I would walk at least a mile and a half 3 times a week, do the bike for about a half hour , two days and tried lots of workout dvds. and then i lost the drive. I have begun some low impact sitting exercise and hope to work my way back up to walking and doing some of the spark exercise. and yes the meds have made a world of difference no longer sluggish. Thank s I will try the 1800, keeping the 1400-1600 in mind in case I begin to stall. Thanks for your help
What was your calorie intake 2 years ago when you had weight loss? Since you can tell you are losing, stick to 1700-1800 calories. Are you able to exercise? AND...I'm so glad that you are being treated for your hypothyroidism. Now that you have it regulated---weight loss will be easier and you will feel more enegized.
