Here is an average of my daily food intake for this past week:
116g Fat (67.2%)
16.1g net carbs, of which 12.3g came from veggies
I weigh on a body composition scale, so I can tell how much fat, muscle and water I have gained or lost.
Scale weight lost this week - 2.4 pounds
Fat lost this week - 1.5 pounds
Muscle lost this week - 0.8 pounds
Water lost this week - 0.1 pounds
Total scale weight lost since starting - 9 pounds
Since starting, I have lost 6% of my total body weight. I need to lose another 10.7%. I have lost 36% of the 25 pounds I need to lose.
According to my doctor, I needed to lose 35 pounds of fat, and gain 10 pounds of muscle. So far, I have lost 7.7 pounds of fat, and lost 1.3 pounds of muscle/water.
I've also been keeping track of my measurements on fitday. I measure every Sunday.

At Colette's advice, I dropped my calories down to the lowest end of minimum, and, as soon as I did that, I immediately started losing. In the last couple of weeks, I did start trying to increase my calories, but started gaining again. Again, Colette advised me to decrease them again, and I started losing the next day. I guess I may have to stay here for awhile...
I am taking my supplements, including Acetyl L-carnitine, and drinking 84 oz. of water each day.
I started the Pacebook recommendations for exercise.
I also do a 1-hour Hatha Yoga class twice per week.
