OP, will you keep us updated? :flowerforyou:
yes, this is great stuff. I've been trying to do daily weigh-ins to get a sense of the daily variance vs the the trends. I really hated weekly weigh-ins that showed no loss (or a gain), when it could have been a "bad day outlier". This is a great way to understand what's really going on.
I have a question about the black line (EXPECTED weight) . You wrote:
"Now here's a closer look at the same graph, with some added perks: Light red line shows the daily weigh-ins, dark red line shows their linear trend and the black line is the EXPECTED weight (calculated as "previous weight - (TDEE - NET calories)/7700", 7700 corresponding to calories for 1 kg fat loss). "
How do you measure the "previous weight"? Do you do this on a daily basis? If so, is it the actual weight (i.e. previous day's weight on light red line) or something else? I think I'd like to try doing this myself, but I want to make sure I understand your methods. Thanks!
I think it's important to note too, that you seemed to take a reasonable deficit for your amount to lose and amount of activity.
Many people selecting their own settings in MFP cause that NOT to happen, and then they make it worse by not following the program either.
Great job, great numbers, great graph, great results to continue I'm sure.
Thanks for showing that when you do it smart, just keep doing it and your body will respond.
Wow this is very interesting! Did you create the chart in excel? I'm trying to wrap my head around your formula, do you enter daily how many calories you ate? And do you recalculate your tdee as you lose weight?
