I don't have any idea of how many calories I need to lose weight. I've lost 45 pounds since June 06 and can't seem to get any lower for the past 3-4 weeks. In fact, after a meal, I scaled in at 214, but when I wake up I am roughly 208. Ug, I try to aim for 2000 calories, but should I perhaps go down to 1800 if I don't exericse for that day? I want to be around 175, but oh well.
