What we weigh is about what we eat -- not about how much we exercise.
I do WW points, not calories. The principle is the same though -- you need to eat enough to fuel your body, but just a little less than you are burning. For me, it's really a narrow range. Eating more than that amount and I don't lose, and eating less than that amount and I still don't lose. Also, if you are close to or already in your healthy weight range, it is much more difficult to lose weight.
BTW, I struggled with my weight and making up my own program for YEARS before just biting the bullet, joining WW, and then losing the extra weight. I lost about 1/3 of my body weight and now easily maintain.
Exercise is great and will reshape your body, make you healthier, and help with emotional balance, but it isn't the key to weight lose. (sorry!)
but everything has pros and cons
