Does anyone know if there is a function on here that will create a graph of how much you can expect to lose/weigh at any given day/month?

Nope, that would be too hard to estimate. Everyone is different, fluid levels, bowels, and hormones all affect people differently and will affect what shows up on the scale. But if you want an estimate, you can estimate that for everyone 3500 calories burned in excess of intake, you will approximately lose 1 lb. But it is not a guarantee as often people hit plateaus or TOM arrives for females. There is too much variation to anticipate what one can expect, only time will tell. You can set goals though - goals for 5 lb loss in a month or what have you.

First 5K walk/run last week
Great job. It is really hard to stay motivated when you hit a plateau. Hope the 5K helped. You sound like you are doing great. A friend told me she uses an app called mapmywalk that is working well ...
