I tried the P90X and got to the 4th day before I got injured and couldn't workout for a couple of weeks. I wish I had thought better about how to transition into the workouts. You really need to be careful when building a fitness base.

Jane that's a great place to start with a goal of 1600 calories. The fact that you are recording what you eat goes a long way when dieting. It is good that you weight training included, this will help burn calories while at rest. Personally I don't even count all the "Sleeping, Resting, Driving" activities as they are far too subjective. Good Luck

Counting calories when dining out
This is always a difficult one for me too. I have gotten better at judging what a cup of rice is or a 8 oz cut of meat, but when you get a complex dish like Mahi Mahi stuffed crab who knows how much of each there is and what is in the sauce. Generally sauces are bad. A couple things you can do is you can look at a menu online ahead of time and try to make a "sensible" choice and build the meal log. Salads are good because you only have to worry about the dressing and you can get that on the side.
what tends to happen for me is I do the best I can, and I usually skip entering everything and if I notice my weight loss stalls after a couple of meals out then I have to modify what I am ordering and eating. Good Luck.

You could start with the "at rest" and "sleeping" calories burned and give yourself a target calorie intake and if you are losing 1-2 pounds a week then it is accurate. If you are not making progress then you may need to change your target.

For me I set my daily calories burned to 1 kcal per day, then only include my exercises. Then I don't spend so much time worrying about the BMR.

Trying to not obsess so much on the diet. It seems I am bugging some of my best supporters but all I think about is eating. Aaaaaagh.
