    Absolutely perfect.... the kind that results in -10 to -12 lbs in a year. Which was my second year on MFP.

    Room to experiment, indulge a bit but not too much. Shave a couple unless you're so low you don't want. Ability to either do extra or not sometimes. Time. Time not regaining is the Golden fleece. Time to figure out how many scones and pizzas and MIL issues and the penalty is not continuing down as fast, or maintaining, which was the goal.

    I like your curves 😹🤣😘😎

    @Dante_80 I'm not sure if we ought to blame either the magiritsa or Connie's margaritas... a couple of the keftedakia in your picture and a lamb or two would take care of things nicely! 🤣😘

    @Bella_Figura maybe I'll start making sense once I've had more coffee! Or not! You know what the graph says. I don't know that I would change much of anything though. Soft landings are hard to implement but wonderful to behold. And you've got post COVID re-openings to deal with, MIL, stress 🐹... I would personally just keep on going and exploring the limits

    Really love Margaritas too!

    PAV, I mean the rest of the stuff surely didn't help, but I wager I might have got more than 10k mg sodium in the span of a day or so from the lovely soup.

    Twas totally worth it though, this thing is really delicious.

    Glad to see your post, ATKI. I have no suggestions up my sleeve except keep searching, keep posting, keep mutt walking....like you've been doing.

    The mutt union thanks you and expects improved working conditions to come!

    Remember when walking the mutt... you keep going WITHOUT sniffing all the bushes.

    Doing circles around the sniffing mutt generates a delightful expression on their face!

    If your weight trend (or several scale spans to ensure you're not counting outliers), but if the trend shows 1.7 per week, your effective deficit is about 850 Cal a day

    Add 850 to what you've eaten and you will find your apparent actual tdee

    Activity levels are just labels for a physical activity multiplier with which the site multiples your Mifflin BMR to estimate your NEAT (add actual net exercise to get TDEE).

    TDEE does the same but includes the exercise estimate.

    They are a first approximation.

    Your own consistently collected data will be more reflective of your actual current reality.

    Thanks Pav ….taking all this on board! But the walking the mutt is problematic!
    Doing what I did today - upwards of 7 miles walked was stupid & I know tomorrow and Tuesday will be days of pain & plenty of tears!
    You made me grin with Jess stopping to sniff the bushes ……There is no way that mutt stops…ever ..to sniff! ….She just runs & runs!
    I’m the problem; I HAVE to stop frequently to sniff the bushes…and breathe!
    To me weight loss per week is ok - I do know this’ll probably drop off…
    I’ll have to add non weight bearing exercises then & I am hoping that I can increase intensity when the breathlessness gets less & improves… but this is down to time & patience (argh! ‘cuz I have none!)
    TDEE figures are so interesting 🐹🐹🐹🐹 This would suggest mine is what circa 2,400?🙃🙃🙃
    As Cat 111 Obese, with health conditions, I’m okay with 1.0 to 2 lbs weight loss…. Maybe 1.7lbs would be a bit fast if I was under 200lbs., but I aint ……yet!! 🤗

    0.5% to up to 1% of body weight per week usually well enough tolerated. Higher initially MAYBE... DEFINITELY lower down the road... or even lower if you're me down the road! :lol:
