I love data!

Sunday, September 01, 2013

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.

    Well done! SP has added just these types of charts, and if you like data, you might want to investigate these.

    Keep up the great work!

    The monthly average tracking for calories consumed and expended is brilliant! Under 200 sounds soooo good - I'm right behind you. % )

    If this is the same Karen I am thinking of, she is very good with her vlogs. And you are doing very well with your calories and exercise minutes. WAY TO GO!!!
