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

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.

Have you been following 1800-1900 calories?
Have you been losing 2 pounds weekly?

I'm thinking, a range of 1400-1600 calories daily would be more appropriate.
Can you share more.

I can help you set those ranges, but I first want to make sure that 1800-1900 is the correct weight loss calorie range for you. This seems to me to be some what high.
