RDI question pertaining to this
the 1200/1500 number is based on a large population study, and is averaged over it. That doesn't mean its wrong necessarily, but it is an average, so may not be accurate for any given person. If you want a more accurate reading, go get a resting metabolic rate test, which are pretty common and inexpensive, and tell you the exact number of calories your body burns at rest.

I don't know what's wrong here!
The symptoms may just be side effects of your diet, it is quite common for people to suffer from hair loss and headaches on very low calorie diets. That said a blood test for nutritional deficiency might be a wise move. If you are doing 600 cal workouts every day, then your really on a 900cal/day diet, which is quite extreme.

Weight loss Irritation
I would agree about recording your consumption over 1-2 weeks, but also I would make sure to track what drinks you have, as this can sneak up quickly. It does mean having literally every bite recorded though. It might be worth getting a bodyfat % and resting metabolic rate test done, these cost money, but give you a lot better information. There are also good tools for tracking activity level now, bodybugg gets pretty good reviews (although I haven't tried that). RMR gives you the exact calories your body burns a day just sitting there, the activity trackers give the calories you burn in your daily life on top of that, if you know the calories you are eating then you have a very good picture of what is happening.

Beer and Social Life
I have the same problem, my social network is mostly pub based, so not going isn't really an option, and cutting back just doesn't work, as after a few I don't have the willpower. I "gave up" drinking about 4 weeks ago, as it seemed like the only way to avoid the temptation of rounds and helpful friends. now I still go to the pub 2 nights a week, but only drink pints of soda and lime. I must admit I still enjoy myself, but it does take a bit of getting used to.

Trending line and Expected Target Date
that would be really useful, as at the moment the estimated loss / week approach is all over the place if you weigh in regularly (as it only uses the previous sample). What might work even better is an uppper and lower trendline bound over the dataset.

Accurate weight scale
I have a good set of tanita scales for home, they have bodyfat analysis, can store multiple users, and are rock solid construction wise. Accuracy is bang on with these.

Kcals
1 kcal means 1000 calories of energy, the energy it takes to raise the temperature of 1kg of water by 1°C. In nutrition circles when people talk about "calories" they are actually talking about kcal, the two terms are interchangable.
