For those of you who ARE losing weight - how many calories are you eating?

Just b/c this gets asked so many times, and because the answers are likely to vary so much-

How much do you weigh?
How tall are you?
How much exercise?
Current calories:

How much do you weigh? 180, down from 200.
How tall are you? 5' 7"
M/F? F
Age? 26 (27 in 23 days!)
How much exercise? moderate - walking most days, lots of housework and chasing around a 6 month old...some days it feels like strenuous!
Current calories: 1400-1800, usually closer to the low end, but lots of flexibility.

Another question: How much weight have you lost and how fast are you losing it? 20 lbs in 9 weeks, just over 2 lbs a week, steady loss.

5'3, 105 down from 125
No working out at all.
1200 calories a day
It took me 6 months to lose 20 pounds (3 inches from waist) that way. A lot of it was probably muscle mass so now I'm trying to gain 5-10 pounds in muscle by lifting weights.

5'4", 122lbs down from 142
female, 25
1.5-2hrs aerobics/kick-boxing a week (30 minute sessions, every other day)
1400 calories a day
Lost on average 1.5lbs every week. Took about 3 months to lose 20lbs.

I'm now back up to approx. 2000 calories a day, and my weight's been steady (give or take a lb or 2) for 4 months. I still work out and try to eat sensibly.
