First of all, thanks for the variety of responses. It's nice to know I'm not nailed down to a number from some chart somewhere
Second, thank you for some targets to aim for. In looking over the last couple of days, I can see already that I'm over carbing and under protein-ing. By a lot I think. So I at least know where my focus needs to be.

Very very true. I'm an emotional eater--frustration is my downfall! Allergies, winter, you name it! It affects what and how much I eat.
I know that with an hour of hard walking 5 days a week, I am going to see some changes fairly soon, if I can control my food.
