I'm averaging about 1450 per day. I shoot for 1200-1500, but I give myself a cushion and as long as I'm below 1600, I consider myself in range for the day.

I'm honestly very satisfied with the amount I'm eating - I don't think I could really eat a lot more calories on a regular basis unless I started eating junk. But in terms of good food, it's enough. I will eat more if I'm hungry, but my criteria is that it has to be healthy food, or I must not really be hungry.

Still have a long way to go before I'm at goal, but I've lost about 27 lbs since 11/2/09. I am 47, almost 48, and can definitely tell that the weight is coming off more slowly than it would have when I was younger. But it's coming off and that's what matters.
