I have a calorie limit of 1648 (my app came up with that number).
I feel as though if I get less than 150-200 calories near that number, that its not good enough. Which is ridiculous as it is as limit plain and simple. But I know no matter what the number ill want to go below it.

Is that weird ? Do any of you do that ?

Nope. I gladly eat all of my 1550 calories lol! If I have like 100 left and I am hungry, I have no issues grabbing a 100 calorie snack (or even 150 depending on what I want!)

I used to be like that, I always wanted to be under my number by at least 100 calories. However in the last 4 weeks I've lost a total of 1 pound so I think it's time to get right back to that number and maybe even over it!

I definitely do this! Myfitnesspal has just knocked down my calorie allowance to 1280, but I still feel that I'm only doing a good job if my calories are 1205 or something. I just feel like I'll balloon up if I eat any more than that

Well glad to hear others feel that way. Although I suppose it isn't a good thing. I'm gunna try harder to reach that number without physiologically getting down on myself!

You're NOT the only one! My personality is very much, "If some is good, then more must be better." I'm in losing mode now (after maintaining over a year, then gaining about 8 pounds) and I'm back to counting calories strictly. Sometimes I have to remind myself that I will lose at my given calorie limit. I also know that, when I restrict too much, I'm more likely to snap and overeat . . . by a lot.

I was starving myself on 1300 calories a day (fitday said I needed over 1800) and wondering why I didn't lose weight as fast as I should. You're not the only one. I'm feeling guilty lately because I'm pretty much eating at my calorie level - although I could be eating better. I eat enough protein and fiber, though. I track that pretty closely.

I'm a WWer although I do log calories on MFP sometimes just to see the totals for the day as well as the weekly averages. Anyway, I do have that in the back of my head- If I can lose with this, I can lose more with less, kinda thing. Not a good way of thinking, I know. Luckily so far, I've been able to snap myself out of going under my daily intake on purpose. Like some others on here, I will snap if I restrict too much.
