I'm significantly heavier than you but I keep around 1800, which has me on track to lose around 1-1.5 pounds per week. It's also enough to have plenty of wiggle room if something comes up.
On a side note, are you on MyFitnessPal? You're avatar looks familiar.
I'm on mfp but I don't use this avatar lol!

Let me try to understand this.
Starting around March 2009 you tried to eat 1200 calories a day and because you felt so restricted you would binge every other day or at least every five days.
Over the course of 18 months which takes us to the end of 2010 you lost 10 lbs following this routine. You obsesses over food constantly and felt like crap.
December 2012 you ate what you wanted for three days and lost 5 lbs. You then uppded your calories to 1600 and you feel great.
My questions are:
How did you get to 150 lbs?
What happened between the end of 2010 and the end of 2012?
Oh no, I started restricting calories in like April 2010. By then I had gotten down to 170ish. The first months with 1200 I lost weight and got down to 163ish lbs by September 2010.
Since that I've only lost about 10lbs with 1200 and binging. It's actually been two years! Time flies lol.
