Hello all,
i am 35 years old female, since 3 years on 801010 (pretty strict), 5'4 tall. Prior to 801010 i used to weigh about 105 pounds, was a heavy smoker and eating very little. Now my weight crept up to 130+. I am still unsure how much i should eat. I run 4 times a week for 30-60 min, and do 90min of yoga 2-3 times a week.

I calculated that i would need 1050 for my metabolism, and probably on average another 400-500 for my activities per day. The problem is - when i eat according to desire, i would consistently eat between 2500-3000. I am not sure if it is because i am hungry, or because i love love love how all this food tastes (or for some other reason that i am not yet aware of).

I really am bothered by gaining more and more weight on this lifestyle. I am not sick anymore and healed many things, so i know it is good for me. But i hate being chubby. So i guess i will have to eat a little less. Do you think 1500 is a good number for me, and i should stick to it even if i desire more? Maybe it will just take a few days/weeks until my desire will adjust to less calories, and i won't constantly think about food when i eat less than 2500 (which is how it is now).

Any experiences or tips would be truly helpful for me!

Thank you,
