From your diet chart, you do seem to be eating fine, though your deficit is too large. But, then again, the problem with this site is that it doesn't recalculate the RDI based on weight loss. You have to do that yourself.

I suggest you check your recommended RDI from another site. You need to be accurate with everything because height, age, and lifestyle all have a big impact on weight loss/gain. Ideally, your deficit should never, ever go beyond 1000 calories because that leads you to go into the starvation mode and gain instead of losing. (The maximum you can lose, or so the dietitians say, per week without any effecting your health adversely, is 2 pounds per week.)

That said, on paper, 2000 calories sounds a bit much. But then, our bodies need to expend a lot of calories to just supply blood to all parts of our body. That is why the calories depend on the your weight, age, and height, which help calculate our mass! (Sorry for being so crude... my brain has shut down at the moment.)

You can use the following site to check your recommended RDI:

Hope this helps.

Yeah, 10 lbs. in one week is only possible through a combination of water and fat loss. Mostly water(like 80%). Calories in vs. calories out. It is simple. Keep up the good work. Deficit is pretty high. Maybe add in a daily indulgence to help keep you on track.
Love your food or risk failure. No quick fixes, this is a lifestyle change. No extremes are needed just consistency.

I usually add a couple hundred calories a day just for things like licking my fingers after making my kids pb&j's and what not. I have been trying to write down every single thing I eat (only drink water and if I have a glass of milk I add it). I do understand Ambtreh that I have to account for height, weight, etc and came up with around 2000 calories, based of 5 days a week of moderate exercise. Also that number would be lowered as more weight is lost of course. I just have to stick with it!! Thanks for the advice guys!
