    Hey you're doing a great imitation of Garfield's free fall! All we now need is a picture of you dangling under a parachute!๐Ÿ‘

    That weight doesn't look too bad - but it is KG which does move more gradually. Here is my MFP weight report for the past 3 months. There are many days I didn't weigh but this does more accurately reflect why I'm kinda terrified.nsadrc5oriuj.gif

    Figured I should record my total calories consumed too...and exercise calories burned. Eventually maybe I can figure out my TDEE - and a more accurate way to determine how many calories I burn when walking.

    My feeling for me with Fitbit is that for me it over rewards more active days and under rewards sedentary.

    I mentally go to full maintenance or above to maintain on sedentary days and mentally assume a 5% less for active days.

    Actual figures have my Fitbit for me at less than 3% LONG TERM error (looking at months not weeks)

    But it is not really Fitbit and activity

    Intake logging contributes to distract discrepancies

    Even more so, where one is (in reality) relative to average Mifflin RMR contributes more. And how efficient one is.

    Bella burns less cycling than I would and I burn way less walking than someone else would. In fact I "account" for this by counting what some would consider hikes as walks (which may contribute to the small discrepancy)

    If you log consistently you can have a general idea. You may also surprise yourself. There have been too many times now that I haven't believed what Fitbit was saying (was truly feeling hungry or truly NOT feeling hungry) and in the end the internal chemical calculator once freed from ๐Ÿน distraction was the one that was correct based on subsequent weigh reaction. Not early on in weight loss ... but a few years later

    I seem to burn significantly less calories than MFP / fitbit accounts for - either that or I'm retaining a whole heck of a lot of water - more every day.

    Is there a way that anyone knows of to adjust the day start/end time with fitbit? Frequently my days run late - and I walk late - but those burned calories are added to the next day. I know in the big scheme of things it all works out - but on days like yesterday (which ended at 4 for me) - when I ate (naturally even - though I did log) at what fitbit/MFP would indicate is maintenance - 5,000 steps worth of exercise are going to be counted today. Making yesterday look like I ate over maintenance and today I will look like a shining star (maybe :) )

    That's why I often transfers few things over -- did so last night when I too had 5k steps post midnight -- and instead of being 600 over yesterday, I went 300 (which is maintenance) and 300 to today. Arguably I also ate the wasa and cheese after midnight so it was doubly real.

    You do have to watch it that you don't overdo the balancing and are keeping it honest and within real parameters or you'll end up with pure fiction.

    Changing the time based on my time change experiences with travel introduces way larger errors

    The cereal and yogurt daily dinner seems to have an unexpected benefit. Down three pounds without try too hard. Who knew?

    Lunch is still fairly varied with salads, veggies etc. Breakfast has egg and fruit.

    Iโ€™ll check next weekโ€™s numbers to see if itโ€™s real or temporary loss.

    It's real! Heat tends to zap you a bit; but if you don't crank up the air-con... it just may zap your will to eat!!!!!!! :lol:

    AC is on from mid May through mid November with no exceptions. ๐Ÿ’จ

    If heat zaps ones willingness to eat, I should be skinny after over 30 years in Texas! Somehow never had that lack of appetite before until this year. Iโ€™m satisfied with the cereal which amazes me. Perhaps Iโ€™m acquiring a level of intuitive eating?
