Hi Melanie. Not sure I'm following you, exactly. You are seeing what FitDay considers your daily calorie burn, correct? Once you know that, you simply decide how much under that figure you wish to stay for your desired weight loss (not that weight loss always goes in a linear fashion, but on average it should more-or-less work out).

Theoretically, if you stay 500 calories under your daily burn, you should, on average, lose one pound per week. 1000 calories under should net you two pounds, and so one. Of course, there is more to it than that, but that's the basic premise.

47 M 5'8"

May 4, 2010...... 440? lbs. (Start FitDay Size 60 Jeans)
June 19, 2010.... 393 lbs. (First Weigh-in)
June 19, 2011.... 229 lbs. (164 lbs. gone in one year :-)
Current Weight... 185 lbs. (Size 36 Jeans)

Next Goal 169 lbs. (07/04/12)
Ultimate Goal 165 lbs. (12/31/12)

The best exercises for weight loss are Fork Putdowns and Table Pushaways.
