For me, lifting 3 times a week it's about 2200 to maintain. I eat at 1630 to lose. I'm 164ish lbs and 5'4. As I get more muscle I will be able to eat more.
My numbers or the OP's? My thread is displaying kind of weird...

Just in case, I use this: http://www.caloriesperhour.com/index_burn.php

Weight: 135
Height: 5'6"
Age: 24 (guessed)
Sedentary RMR: 1655
Sedentary BMR: 1726

Weight: 145
Height: 5'6"
Age: 24
Sedentary RMR: 1709
Sedentary BMR: 1778

I've never really understood the difference between RMR and BMR... I use RMR just because the number is a bit lower and I'm still trying to lose with really a minimal amount of exercise. Too freaking cold out...
