Welcome! I'm glad you didn't give up! Even if you go over 1500 you can still lose!
I was amazed to see that on some days over Christmas holidays I had more than 2000 and when I input it in MFP, it said I would still weigh less in 5 weeks. It's just slower if you eat more, but you will still lose. That sounds great on taking a modern dance class.
