Check your basal metabolic rate (can do it by googling) and log your workouts to figure out how much calories you are burning daily
If you are looking to lose weight, you’ll need to be at a caloric deficit

Agreed. Use MyFitnessPal during the week and it’s very helpful.

I prefer LoseIt! Doesn’t have to be for losing weight but I like the UI for tracking

It’s better to track macronutrients! Aka, how many carbs, fats, and proteins! This will help you balance. Google IIFYM and it has a lot of good calculators!

I just started tracking and this was a struggle for me. Everything online said I should be eating like 1,500 calories which for me is WAY too low. I get dizzy and I’m starving all day. Everyone’s needs are different and cannot be defined by a formula. What worked for me was tracking my normal intake for about a week and adjusting my goal from that. I was eating 2-2.2k cals per day (including alcohol) and now I aim for 1,800 — but I eat more if I’m still hungry.

If your teen sister was to live with you for 3 months in a high COL city for an unpaid internship, would you expect your parents to help out with the costs?

But I’ve asked that they give her money to help with transportation, fun activities, eating out, her hangouts with friends, etc. I’m being told I’m being selfish and not being a good sister.

How did you know your marriage was over? Context: 4 of the 5 yrs of my marriage haven’t been healthy, two children (3.5 and 1), and lack of any intimacy (physical or emotional).
