Question Hi & Help!

First thing's first...Hi!!! My name's Alicia & I'm new to this site (but not new to trying to lose weight). So far this site seems pretty awesome as I fill out my food diary & journal my thoughts instead of eating them.

I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out how much my daily calories should be. I'm 38 years old & only 4' 8" tall. When I was on WW at this same weight (& obviously height), my daily point count was 18 points. Doing the math, that would mean that I should only be eating 900 calories per day. Is that correct or is it the 1200 calories per day that's usually recommended? I know I need to figure this out because if I'm consuming not enough calories, it's just as bad as consuming too many calories, correct?

If you can help me figure this out I'll be your friend forever. Thanks!
