I love data!

Thank you STR458! (aka karen). You have given me so many good ideas! You vlogged about reviewing your calories for a couple months and finding information to help you get out of maintenance and into losing more weight. So I thought "Hmmmmm....."
So back to the trackers I go. Here are some numbers:
avg. daily calories - 1707; worked out 19 days, avg. minutes per workout 73; weight loss 3 lbs,
avg. daily calories - 1589; worked out 26 days, avg. minutes per workout 63; weight loss 6 lbs.
avg. daily calories - 1671; worked out 24 days, avg. minutes per workout 72; weight loss 5 lbs.
******************what a difference 100 calories a day makes***************
From this I conclude that to reach One-derland by the end of the year I should keep my calories at around 1600/day on average, and keep up the workouts.
Without the nutrition and fitness trackers this information would have cost me a LOT more effort! Thank you Sparkpeople! I was feeling a little tenuous about getting under 200 by year end but now I feel more confident that I can predict it, control some of the variables, and achieve that goal in a healthy way.
