S/C/G: check the ticker :)

Height: 5'8

Default

I'm 5'8, and i started at 323 pounds. I ate 2000 cals and lost about 2 pounds a week, for about 40 pounds. I did not exercise then.

Then I dropped to about 1850 cals and stayed there for about year, dropping another 60-70 pounds with some light exercise.

The lowest I went was about 1600.

But it took a LONG time to find the 'right' calorie balance. At 1500 i was starving, miserable, and the scale simply did not move. At 1800 the loss was getting to be painfully slow so I went a bit lower.

You have to play with it a while, be sensible and don't go too low. Ane one or two weeks isn't enough time for your body to adjust to the calories, I'd give it a bit longer. I'm interested to see what everyone has to say.
