I’m not sure if anyone posted this but you can’t just weigh yourself every week as a female and expect ot see linear progression. There are MANY factors (hormones, water, cycle, etc) that happen every week and cause major changes to your body. The best way to track is to track each WEEK of your cycle and compare MONTHS not weeks! 


Week 1 (Week after Period!) Apples

Week 2: Oranges

Week 3: Pears

Week 4: (week of period) Melons


You can’t compare apples to oranges if that make sense. You have to track your body monthly and take into account your hormone changes. You can only compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges, etc! 🙂

mingogo4 :  my body does not like to give up pounds. Inches will come off but the scale stay away put for weeks and the all of a sudden I drop 3-5.

your calorie defecit seems pretty aggressive, make sure you are eating enough to keep your body going. MFp sets strange macro targets. I’ve had better luck with IIFYM for calculating those – and if you’re doing macros you should eat the same calories every day, they don’t change day to day. 

Perosnally, indo beat with higher protein, then fat and carbs. My body does not respond well to low fats.

give things a few weeks and tweak. Sometimes it takes a while to find what works for you.
