I use the calorie projection from livestrong.com and have lost 58lbs in 20 weeks - and some of that time I was eating 2500 calories, because of how high my weight was. Now my calorie projection is 1880 calories/day. For someone that was 300lbs, dropping down to a 1200 calorie diet would have been too extreme for me, and I don't think I would have lost what I did.
That said, if you are breastfeeding, you need to be sure that you aren't dropping down too far calorie wise or your supply will suffer! Is your supply good now, or do you already struggle?
