I am not sure how to calculate it either, but hopefully one of the ladies in here will see this post, if not post again NEED BMR and include all your info again. 

It will tell you how many calories you should take in a day in order to loose. 

Good Luck!

Ok.. 

BMR or Basal Metabolic Rate is the number of calories your body needs to function and be inactive-think digestion, blood flow and organ functions. Once you add activity, you have to consume more in order to offset that activity and to avoid "starvation mode". This occurs when you eat too little as your body thinks it is starving and begins to burn lean muscle mass instead of fat stores. 

BMR: 1765 ( using 24 yrs of age)+500 ( BFing)=2265

Maintenance while working out 1-3 days per week: 2265*1.375=3114

To lose1 lb per week : 3114-500=2614

Your ideal calorie range is 2265-2614

If you are going to work out 3-5 days per week, let me know and I'll calculate again for you.
