I'm sometimes at 650, sometimes at 900.

I eat around 1,200 calories. I think everyone should eat what they want, but there are some potential dangers with very-low-calorie diets like gall-stones and loss of mental function. I know I can lose weight at 1,200 calories a day, it will be a bit slower, but there are some health benefits and I feel better. Again, I think everyone should talk to a dietitian and eat the calories they think will work best for them. All bodies are different. Check out this WebMD article.

I'm 7.5 months out, and at 900/day...but I'm working my way up to find my maintenance calorie level.

(When I was in the losing phase though, I was like 500-650)

I'm still pretty low - around 600-800, but that's because I still get sick when i eat just about anything. Just last week I was super excited to be able to eat a meal I had been able to eat 2 months after surgery before my body betrayed me (I was able to eat an egg and a small veggie sausage 2 months out, by 3 I was so sick I couldn't stomach 1/2 an egg). So, y'know, progress, I guess.

That’s good to know. Because even though it’s getting better, it’s getting old.

I am 7.5 months and eat about 700 calories/day. I don't track anymore because I eat virtually the same thing every single day so there wasn't really any use in it - but it averaged 600-700 religiously. Supposed to get to 1000 or 1100 by 12 months. Eh.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
