To Denasqu, welcome and I'm glad that post could help. Yes, the bacon-mania does get a bit excessive around here sometimes. I think for a lot of senior members it is one big running joke but a newbie wouldn't know that. I didn't. I ate my bacon and wondered why the magic wasn't happening.
Don't worry about what some internet table tells you you "need" to be eating just to keep breathing. Those tables are written by the same people who brought you the "eat three meals and two snacks a day" philosophy. They are based on a carb burning metabolism. Once you have switched yourself over to fat burning your body can operate just fine on far fewer calories than the official tables say because your body is making up the deficit by consuming its own fat.
Keep at it. Anything more than two pounds a week is probably not sustainable in the long term, IMO. I think you are doing really well. (But no more burger buns <tisk, tisk>) I lost 35 pounds over about 5 months which works out to about 1.5lb/week.
Oh, and BTW for anyone who is interested, I've maintained at my goal weight this whole time. So much for the naysayers who said that anyone who restricts calories is doomed to yo-yo.
