On your diary there is a link right underneath the squares that fill up on green color as you enter calories. If you click.there you can edit your rdi.

Be aware though, that a person in your "weight class" do require quite a bit of calories for your body to run efficiently - probably more than you'd think. If I were you, I'd let FatSecret calculate it for you, and maybe go about 500 lower than that. Don't go too low. All you're gonna accomplish by going too low is for your weight loss to stagnate, you're gonna be less motivated and you're not gonna have as much fun losing weight.
I started at the same weight as you, I did this, and it worked wonders. Good luck! Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

To change your RDI, just go to your home page and click the my diet link. Then go click edit your RDI. But Kingkeld is right. You shouldn't go too low. So just select one of the options to set your recommended RDI.
