without opening your diary, really the only thing we can say is that you are not logging accurately or giving too 'credit' for workout calories

First, let me show you the numbers:Stats
I looked your food intake for the last 14 days and the average is 1643. Given your stats and weight loss (3 lbs over 7 weeks) the results show your TDEE is around 1853. This, of course, assumes your food intake is accurate.
Based on your stats, these are the TDEE estimates at varying activity levels:
Sedentary 1,783 calories per dayYour TDEE 1853
Light Exercise 2,043 calories per day
Moderate Exercise 2,303 calories per dayAnalysis
I think 10k steps (with no other exercise) is considered light exercise on the TDEE spectrum. Eating 1643 per day at light exercise would give you a theoretical weight loss rate of .8 lbs per week.
Your average weight loss is about .42 lbs per week, so that's a 190 calorie difference per day between expected and actual weight loss.
How much were you expecting to lose in 7 weeks ? When I run the numbers, the difference between what I'd expect and your actuals isn't that huge of a difference.
If you want to lose at a faster rate, you either have to eat less or move more.

Hi! I'm a little late to the party, congrats on losing those 3lbs! Sometimes it just takes a bit of patience. =D
A couple of things that I would add, make sure you're drinking plenty of water (this may have been mentioned before), that flushes everything through your system and gets rid of any excess water weight (sounds contradictory but it works). Aim for like 2L/4 pints per day.
And in my opinion what you eat DOES affect your progress as salty or sugary foods will cause you to hold on to that water weight too. Of course everyone is different but it does usually help, make sure you are getting enough protein in your diet aswell, you don't have to religiously follow your macros, but getting a decent amount of protein will help maintain healthy muscle tissue in your body.
Good luck with everything!

This flowchart is really helpful. What is the best way to track calories for strength training? Or just don't? I use a Garmin Forerunner35 - great for runs outdoors and in the treadmill. But I'm not sure how to account for calories when doing strength training.
