Do these numbers even matter??

So I did some calculations and wondering what everyone thinks.

Week 1 - NET Cal. 8, 744 (subtracting that from my weekly TDEE of 12,439 means -3, 695 cal.) LOST WEIGHT(approx. 2 lbs)

Week 2 - NET Cal. 9, 196 (-3, 243) LOST WEIGHT (approx 2 lbs)

Week 3 - NET Cal. 9, 194 (-3241) LOST WEIGHT (approx 2 lbs)

Week 4 - NET Cal. 9, 712 (-2730) NO WEIGHT LOST

I am 5' 3" at 143.8 as of this moring. I have been aiming at 1450 daily calories which is my TDEE minus 15%

Just wondering if I should stick with what I am doing or does something look like it needs to be tweaked??

Am I focusing too much on the numbers??

Really dont want to cut my calories, just looking for some advice/hints....thanks :)

    It looks like you have been having great success. Sometimes while losing weight our bodies go through periods of time when it holds onto the weight, and then it eventually lets it go. Keep doing what you are doing, give the scale time to "catch up".
