Ok, so I am way over weight. I used to weigh 145-155 lb. and I would like to get back to at least 160-165 lb. (I've had 5 kids so I know I am not gonna get my pre-pregnancy body back).

Should I eat the number of Kcals NOW that I will want to be eating when I am at my ideal weight or should I slowly decrease my Kcal's??

You ask a very good question, and honestly, either of these approaches would work.

However, slowly decreasing calories will help you to avoid feeling deprived or hungry.
