I was confused about how many calories I shoud aim for. So I spent my first couple weeks just making wise healthy choices in food, proper portions, to see where I was at. I ended up eating 1300-1500 cal/day. I am comfortable with that and don't feel deprived. My calculated metabolism based on lifestyle is around 3000. Mainly just walking for exercise right now. Will see what will happen. Lost 2 lb so far.
