You're under by almost 25%. That's not okay. It's not just about the calories. If you only had 900 and some calories, that means you didn't get enough protein, calcium, fiber, iron, vitamins, etc. When you don't get enough nutrients, you get sick.
If it's one day, it's not a big deal, but over time, you do need to learn to eat enough nutrients without too many calories. The best way to do this is by NOT waiting til the end of the day to total everything up and "hope" you're not over or under. Instead, sit down right now and plan what you're going to eat tomorrow. That way, if you're not in the right general calorie range or if you've got way too much carbohydrate and almost no protein, you can change your plan. With a computer nutrition tracker like this one, it's easy to try out different combinations until you come up with the right number of calories and a good balance of nutrition.
Also, if you don't think you can figure this out on your own, you can use the SparkPeople menu plans. Most people don't use them exactly the way they appear in the tracker because they're not very practical-- they might call for an English muffin one day and never call for another one to help you use up the package, for example. But what you can do is look at a whole week's plan and choose one or two days that look good to you, and use those more than one time each. Or you can take the lunch from one day and the dinner from another day to make combinations you like.
Whichever way you decide to do it, *planning ahead* is key. And besides helping you lose weight, it will also help you save money! If you plan out several days ahead of time, you use up all your groceries before they spoil and you don't buy things you don't need.
