Eating fewer than your recommended calorie range not only won't help you lose faster, it can hurt your body tremendously. www.sparkpeople.com/community/ask_the_expe
Remember that you're given a range for a reason... it's okay to eat anywhere within it! Many people have found it's more helpful to eat at the top of their range on more active days, and at the bottom on the less active days. Your minimum is a minimum... not where you should be eating all the time. 1200 is very low, and the lowest possible range here... it isn't appropriate for most people, especially anyone that's exercising. Only sedentary and very slight women. At your weight, it's almost certainly not enough, and most likely you've either set a too-aggressive timeline for your weight loss you may not have set up your other goals correctly.
