My ideal calorie intake according to Spark People: 1,200 - 1,550
I'm normally at 1,300 - 1,400 and I have a routine.
I wake up and eat a fruit, I workout, I eat breakfast (oatmeal with dried fruit or cereal with nonfat milk ect...) I go for a 15 minute bike ride, I eat lunch (I love sandwiches and I always eat a salad with low-fat Caesar dressing) I have a snack, I eat dinner (I eat a light dinner, and a cup of frozen fruit because I always crave sweets!) and I go to bed by 10 p.m.
I always try and plan my meals the day before and I leave it at around 1,000 - 1,200 calories just in case I am tempted the next day, like yesterday I ate a mini banana nut bread that was less than 100 calories, or I'll eat a skinny cow ice-cream or chocolate bar.
I hope that helps!

WOW! Congratulations! We're the same age and almost the same height (you're 1 inch taller!), and I also wanted to get to 100lbs. I'm currently 110 and I haven't lost anything in a month! May I ask what you're calories intake is right now? How do your meals look like?

Thank you! Spark People has helped me a lot. I used to only worry about calories, I would eat a bag of chips if it had less calories than an apple lol but now I worry about the nutrients my body needs and I feel so much better!

I started at 150 lbs and I am now down to 114! I started my weight loss journey on March 16, 2011 and I will reach my goal weight of 100 lbs by the end of August. I'm 19, 5 ft tall, and would love to make some friends that are going through the same roller-coaster of stress, hurdles and happiness that this journey is taking me on.
