paperiniko's Journal, 11 December 2012

Today weighed in after 40 days and reaching a gross deficit of 31300 kcal which would correspond to a net deficit of around 16500 once corrected for the usual 10% estimated extra calories my bodymedia reports. Once this usual adjustment is made the expected fat loss is in line with the calorie deficit ie:-2.4kg.
My body fat percentage has gone down to 20.6% and my lbm up to 37.9% (32.51kg vs 32.05kg).My waist has gone down 3.5 cm.

On average I have eaten 2977kcal, with way too many days over 3000 in the past 6 weeks. I managed to keep deficit through exercise mainly tennis and riding my bike to work instead of driving.
It is disappointing that I could not keep my calories under 2500 as it was my goal, mainly by limiting refined sugar that I am consuming way too much. Not worried about weight/fat loss which is going according to plan and would not wish to go any faster, but because too many sugars are not good overall and generate addiction.
I am glad I am keeping my activity up through the winter and enjoying it.

The next couple of weeks will be challenging because there will be plenty of parties and celebrations and I plan to enjoy all the food I love when I will go back to Italy for Xmas. I hope to get to the week of 24th with a further 5-7 k calories deficit so that I have some buffer for the extra calories I will certainly eat over Christmas. The problem is that only over the next week I have 4 dinners and christmas parties.

Last thing, since the start of November I moved to My Fitness Pal journal to save my calories. I am copying to FS manually to update my calendar, but just inserting total calories. I still prefer FS overall, but MFP syncs with my body media offering me a lot of additional data on my BM dashboard. I am not copying the exercise, but on average I have burnt 3850 kcal/day (3500 net of the overestimation)
189.2 lb Lost so far: 71.4 lb.    Still to go: 32.6 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.
