Lets start with the basics: What's your long term goal?

I am looking to lose about 110 pounds..safely and healthy..this is my fourth day of it and I also have restricted myself to a 1200 calorie intake and completely cut out soda as well

Okay! Check it out. Weight loss is a very heavily debated topic so I am not going to get into the fundamental principles but I will gently guide you in the right direction for a beginner. There are MANY different weightloss plans suited for MANY different people. The reason these work (some better than others, but nonetheless (f.p.)) is because they all share a common denominator of more calories burned than calories taken in.

As your calorie deficits add up, you will see the weightloss results. -3500 calories = 1 lb lost. Do NOT rely on the scale to provide an accurate scheme of progress. Weigh yourself ONCE every TWO weeks. NO MORE. Pictures and calipers are the best way to track body fat loss. GOOD LUCK!!!

It could be. I'm not sure of your lifestyle, physical needs, and bilogical make up, but generally speaking, if you are being honest with yourself and accurately filling in your counter then yes! -~1500 is good and compliments your goal!

The flipside here is that your counter may have inaccurately calculated a higher TDEE and put your calories in higher than it should but I'm not sure! These tools are quite trivial!

I'm very honest I even add down to the condiment on a sandwich!! Lol. I figured the only one I'm cheating is myself so yeah...I know in the past I ate well over 1200 calories and ate only a meal or two a day and snacked. So I have completky changed my eating habits. And although I'm sore as hell from the work outs I already feel better..more energized and not sluggish

I have noticed that the calories counters are screwy..I have checked out several and lose it is my favorite. I try to go by the packaging if possible

Yeah give yourself a day or two to let your muscles to expand. Otherwise you will just be straining your muscles and not alowing them to grow.
