A good general guideline to help get a good start.

Quote:
Calorie Needs to lose weight
There are approximately 3500 calories in a pound of stored body fat. So, if you create a 3500-calorie deficit through diet, exercise or a combination of both, you will lose one pound of body weight. (On average 75% of this is fat, 25% lean tissue) If you create a 7000 calorie deficit you will lose two pounds and so on. The calorie deficit can be achieved either by calorie-restriction alone, or by a combination of fewer calories in (diet) and more calories out (exercise). This combination of diet and exercise is best for lasting weight loss. Indeed, sustained weight loss is difficult or impossible without increased regular exercise.

If you want to lose fat, a useful guideline for lowering your calorie intake is to reduce your calories by at least 500, but not more than 1000 below your maintenance level. For people with only a small amount of weight to lose, 1000 calories will be too much of a deficit. As a guide to minimum calorie intake, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that calorie levels never drop below 1200 calories per day for women or 1800 calories per day for men. Even these calorie levels are quite low.

An alternative way of calculating a safe minimum calorie-intake level is by reference to your body weight or current body weight. Reducing calories by 15-20% below your daily calorie maintenance needs is a useful start. You may increase this depending on your weight loss goals

It felt like it was going to more.

Seeing your weight then weighing myself just reminded me that I need to get more active again. I am enjoying the power the extra weight has given me swinging a bat though . I need to get back around 185-190lbs.

I am still losing on average 2 to 3lbs a week. I am the lightest I have been since um... college???
Kickstand thinks I eat too few calories but it's working for me. I am working out at least 5 times a week now when I get up for work. I am all about efficiency. Seeing me buy new pants every couple of weeks is getting hard on my cheap hubby though..

No, I think you are depriving mikey of calories. I also think when you plateaued and were complaining of it that you were unwilling to listen to suggestions to help you get past your plateau.

I'm very curious if you have had your % body fat tested and how that has changed.

Awesome Kerryann

I'm actually starting to put weight back on now, (245) but it is all muscle mass. I told the wife I was going to try to get as big as Lou Forigno, in which she replied, "you should take a bath in green kool-aid, it will help".

You don't lose 160lbs without losing body fat.
I am more tone right now than I have been since I was doing the triathlons. I did try everything before I decided to do starvation. I am not doing starvation now but still losing weight. I am however eating all organic and non gmo for at least 90% of my food. I also gave up diet soda except special occasions.

I should also add that I don't have Mike on the same calorie range as myself. He gets more but I saw a pic of him today and was amazed at how much weight he has lost.
