Club goal to lose 10 lbs, 2 down and 8 to go! Still 8 to go and it will, I'm determined and cutting down on the beer. Updated Nov. 19th
I agree with Betsygr8 about your low calorie intake and there are lots of threads on here to read that can tell you more about that,in the meantime, you may wish to browse the following link ..................
but please, do address your unusually low intake.
Whatever you decide, good luck and let us know how it all goes,

I'm not very good at this but have done some number crunching. Given your age, sex, weight and height and deciding you are probably moderately active (!) your TDEE is coming in to be 2263 cals daily.
Your BMI is slightly into the overweight category.
This suggests that you are massively under eating.
Perhaps you could look at shocking your body and really start to mix up what you are doing- 2 days 5:2 at 500 cals, maybe one or two day of 2000+ cals (if you can manage) and another 2 days of reasonable 1700ish cals.
Some of the less numerically challenged will be able to work out something more accurate but I think the need to mix up what you are doing may help.
What do you think?
I seem to remember that moderately active involved being on you feet about half the day, gym 3-5 times a week and a few other things. I also reckoned with having 2 children (and assumed they were quite small) you would be realtively active. Could be wrong of course, but even if you do the numbers with a sedentary option you'll be under eating.
