I based mine on the BMR for a woman of my height and weight, not pregnant. I knew that pregnancy adds a fairly small extra demand in the first 6 months, so that is where the gentle loss comes from.

At 300ish, 1900 cals may lead to a bit faster loss than I had (I ate 1800 - 2000 cals at 200lbs even.) Is this a drastic drop from what you are doing now or have you been eating at 1900 for a while?
For the first time in my life, I believe that I can be slender, fit and toned. I always just thought that didn't apply to me. Why?

Goal 1: No longer obese - 185lbs: Reached 12/19/14!
Goal 2: Normal BMI - 154lbs
Final Goal: 135lbs
