For the record, I'm 5"4.5, size 4 and I weigh 140lbs and often when I decide to plug my diet into fitday I wind up 2500-3000, but occasionally 1800ish.
I recommend logging a bit just to learn the various macros and the calories but not getting too hung up on it. Just looking at my caloric intake it sounds ridiculous but it works so I'll keep it up until it stops working.
