Thanks so much. I am about right so far. I have lost 6 pounds since starting SP and I have been eating about right. Thanks for the great tip.

Thanks for the formula... I shared it with my friends. I decided to now take 100 calories off my daily maximum because I lost 10 pounds and need to be sure to adjust so I can keep losing. Interesting stuff...

Thank you for your concern with the comment you left on my blog, Tex. It lead me to do my own research which I found much more helpful than your formula as it took into consideration my age, height, and activity level. Much appreciated! You have a good one.

Don't weigh yourself until the end of each week, and on Sunday, use your new body weight x 11 again, and figure the 10%, 15%, 20% calorie reduction. As you lose weight, your body needs less calories to operate, so you have to readjust ONCE a week - daily would be too difficult. It's not just your calories, it's your meals you have to readjust and track, too.

I like this. So is my calorie range right? 1200-1620?
