Kudos to you on doing such a great job so far! That's great that you've got both the eating and the exercising going so well!
Definitely update your calories burned in the fitness tracker. I'm about the same weight, and with a calorie burn of 1200 per week and a weight-loss goal of 1-1/2 to 2 lbs per week my range is 1380-1730.
I'm with you on not being in a rush, and honestly, I like eating too much to want to ever drop to 1200 calories per day, so this is working out great for me.
You might want to also look at adding some strength training to your exercise. With such a fast drop, you've likely lost a good bit of lean muscle along with the fat, and it would be a good idea to start building that up again so your metabolism isn't totally shot by the time you get to goal weight.

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
