Tema, it's funny but now that I have been doing this for three weeks or so, I'm much more comfortable on the low end of my calorie spectrum! I've been hitting the 1200-1300 range for 4-5 days out of the week and finding that I'm not starving at all. Very interesting. At first I never thought that only 1200 calories could be satisfying, but I'm discovering that it really, truly is (if you are eating the right things). -Pixie
Hi Pixie I'm totally the opposite when it comes to getting my calories in...I'm always on the low end and rarely will I go to the high end...but even on the low end I'm not ravenous about it I've learned a while ago to eat to live and not to live to eat and that thinking has really helped me a lot so I get a lot of protein in everyday....and it keeps me fuller longer along with my water
If You're tired or starting over stop giving up

Whenever I am trying to reduce, I always stick to the high end of whatever calorie range is recommended to me. I cannot, I repeat, cannot live on 1200 calories. I have tried this before and it has turned me into an evil monster.
I only bring this up because Spark has recommended 1200-1550 calories for me to start with. 1550 is fine. 1200 is basically asking me to have a violent meltdown. Anyone else like this?
