Really, the best way to figure out the calories for you is trial and error. My advice would be to start with 2000 calories/day, track for a couple of weeks -- at least 2 -- and see how you do! If you're losing some, keep it there! A good pace is an average of no more than 1% of your current body weight. If you don't lose at all in that time, drop 100 calories or so a day and track that for a while.

Any site you go to will only be an estimate.

Good luck!
