You are looking at the small picture; remember that the vast majority of the calories you burn come from daily living... NOT exercise. You add exercise calories burned on TOP of that, and you then start worrying about deficits later. You aren't "eating up" your calories; your body needs fuel to function, and if you're truly hungry, you're probably not eating enough to support the exercise you're doing on top of daily living.
When I'm not exercising, I need about 1400-1600 to lose weight. HOwever, when I start exercising regularly? I need more. More like 1600-1800!
