Quest for My Pretty - Weekly Weight Loss Report

Time for some analysis. You know how I've been questioning my body's metabolic rate now that I'm doing TurboFire and have noticed a definite improvement in my overall fitness since the New Year break? Well, I am clearly still having trouble figuring out exactly what I need to do.

Weight: 161.6 lbs (+1.2 lbs)

Now, here's what I know:
  • Exercise - I have this covered so well it's not even funny. I'm getting in all my exercise and I don't miss one. I even switch it up every 90 days or so. I have since the beginning back in May.
  • Food - I am NOT consistently eating over my budget of 1350 calories per day. My ratios of Fats, Carbohydrates, and Proteins may be off. But still, a calorie deficit should mean weight loss, right?
  • Calorie Expenditure - I am keeping track of Exercise by using my heart rate monitor to determine calories out.
  • Calorie Intake - I am writing everything down in the Lose It App. It also tells me what my max calorie intake should be.
This Week's Food Intake Graph (From Lose It)
Eating above the red line means I've had more than my allotted amount per day. I can eat more than 1350 calories IF I exercise and create the deficite. The 1350 calories already assumes I want to lose 1.5 lb per week.

Now the previous two weeks when
 I was losing:

You will notice the biggest difference is that I have a lower weekly calorie deficit. And in fact, I over ate on several days of the week. I think maybe I should try eating up to the red line regardless of the exercise during the day and see what happens for next week.

Anyway... Have a look. Give me your take below. I am all ears!
