I'm 5'2, 128lbs & 27. Not breast feeding!

Thanks ladies! New to this, I ate clean and exercised last year to lose weight and can't get back into it :( I have a stomach and am depressed, I have been stuck forever! :'(

I recently quit going to the gym and working out all together. Sigh, I need some encouragement and drive to start again!

BMR: 1376

Maintenance while working out 3-5 days per week: 1376*1.55=2132

To lose 1 lb per week: 2132-500=1632

Your ideal calorie range is 1376-1632 calories per day to lose 1 lb per week...if you are just trying to maintain, you should eat between 1632-2132 cals per day...both of those are provided you get back to working out 3-5 days per week.

 Stupid question but what is a BMR? And how do you determine it?

Basal Metabolic Rate...it's the amount of calories your body burns each day if you do nothing but sit on your booty:)
