I'm glad that you went to your doctor and got checked out. That is the most important thing to do in this type of situation.
Do you use a food scale regularly? Do you track your food, every last bit that goes into your mouth? I find that when I bring out the trusty old scale, I find out I was consuming more calories than I'd thought. Also, I've noticed lately that a lot of nutritional labels are straight up wrong if you are measuring (ie, cups, tablespoons, etc.).
For what it's worth, I am 5'2" and I need to eat around 1200 or less to lose weight. I would not lose weight at 1550--maybe only .5 lb a week, which shifts in water weight would totally mask and make me frustrated. I wear a fibit, and some days I've only burned 1600 by the time I go to bed, even days I have 10,000 steps in!
