the atkins diet states not to worry about your calorie intake. unless you are not losing for a significant amount of time. i think your numbers look pretty good. i frequently go over my daily rdi (not my net carbs) and i am having no problems losing. so i'd say keep doing what you're doing and just watch what happens, if you're gaining or not losing then adjust it.

I wouldn't worry about the calories unless you were concerned that they were too low! I have had some great results living a low carb lifestyle, and I haven't counted calories yet =)
Never mind the time it will take you to accomplish your goal; the time will pass anyway.
