My RDI is 2000 - does that mean they expect me to eat 2000 calories? That's crazy! I'm a little confused =)

Make sure you have set your calculations for weight loss, not maintenance. If this is so, try out the new RDI. Be happy that it's a good one. It gets harder as you lose weight. Remember to recalculate as your weight changes.

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.

I set my Rdi as sedentary which gives me about 2100 I then actually burn off up to 2900 calories on an active day and eat about 2400 so in still 500 under what I actually have done

So You Want To Be A Loser
I desperately want to keep the motivation now and for the rest of my life. Not like a job, but just second nature. Comfortable with this body...my body and the way I feed and care for it.
