Mary, being honest with ourselves is very difficult. I know I have a tendency to estimate low on portions. That's one reason why I set my intake on the low side (1500). I log everything, but sometimes one just can't weigh/measure portions. I figure if I'm staying between 1500 and under 1700 then I'm "safe", regardless of minor errors.
My calorie average had snuck up to around 2k there for a while, mainly due to the occasional 6 pack of ale or meal out. At that point I lose very slowly and any more and I don't lose at all.
I'm thinking my eventual maintenance level is going to be around 2400-2500 or thereabouts. If/when I make the commitment to build some muscles perhaps that will go up a bit.
Anyway, stick to your guns and let's make the final days of 2011 good healthy ones!
