    I would do two to three high then one low. So 1-2 low days / wk to start.

    I would wear the fitbit for a week and get an average calorie burn. That should be the limit for a high day. A low day could be 30% but no more than 40% below that.

    My suggestion, for what it is worth given I haven't lost any since we started in January, is to take the month where you lost weight. Total the calories for all the days you kept good records. Divide by that number of days and let us know what you get. (how is that to fulfill your OCD fantasies?). Then we can see how different it is from your BMR. Then maybe use one as your high number and one as your low.

    2. 1600
    3. 1600
    4. 1200
    5. 1600
    6. 1600
    7. 1200

    to start for example?

    do your losing month average first and then I will think about the details of your days. Right now I am thinking maybe one close to 1000 FF, then at least one day of your BMRx's activity, then the other 5 hover around your losing month average.

    You can do a 90 day calorie bar graph on MFP. It is under reports. Your average cals in Feb. seemed to be 1500.

    I wouldn't throw in the FF day unless the low calorie days are not working for you.

    * You are not going to like this...Your BMR is 1900

    I was thinking more like:
    1900
    1900
    1500
    1900
    1900
    1500
    1900
    1900

    Yes, I really was thinking the FF was more of a throw in from desperation, ie. the above didn't work.

    I admit, I feel desperate most of the time in regards to losing..
