Thank you all for responsing.

I did try to stick to around 1000 to 1100 calories yesterday and with the little excersie I did and the water I drank, I dropped 2 lbs. I really think this is too low but added a bit more protein to my foods but still hard for me to find protein foods. I dont eat meat (only chicken) I bought some cottage cheese today (for protein).

I also lowered my fat intake by 10 or 12 percent??

yesterday results listed below

Calories Burned Today 1,636

walking very brisk pace (4.0 mph) @:30 ~ 140 calories burned
sleeping 8:00 ~ 403 calories burned
biking 10 mph or less at 15 minutes calories burned ~ 60

lifestyle Sedentary 1,038 calories
---------------------
Calories Burned Today 1,636

Calories Eaten 1,008 (if measured correctly) give or take 100 calories over? I try to enter the correct amounts and weigh my foods

Fat 42. Carbs 33. Protein 24

I'm really 5 3 and 1/2 but I calculate my height at 5 ft 3 in.

Yes I'm older and have been sedentary the last 2 yrs so I need to jumpstart my metabolism. Thanks to all for the wonderful advise.

Thank you and good luck to all of you,
Sky
