Having said that, no, that is not too much exercise to start with. I would try increasing to 1400 calories-ish and see what happens. Good luck! Obviously you're not going to regret adding exercise into your routine; it can only help, after all.
I'm so sorry. I fretted about this all night long thinking of a way to respond. When you responded that way I realized what I said probably didn't come across right. I'll start by saying I'm jealous of your size 10 jeans! I'm jealous of size 12 jeans and of 155 lbs! LOL! I guess that what I meant, and still probably won't say right, is that muscle weighs more than fat, and while I already know that, knowing that a woman can fit into a size 8 pair of jeans while weighing 155 lbs amazes me. And that's because she has some heavy muscle on her. I was 135 in size 10 jean when I graduated from college! I don't think there was any muscle stuffed into those jeans, which is probably why I wasn't happy with my body at the time.
