We are at 6 weeks. Week 6 has been a week in which I his a bit of a plateau. I did not take any days off and that is three weeks in a row without a day off.

### Exercise:

During the sixth week, I had a decent week of exercise. I walked a total of 48.6 miles and averaged 6.76 miles per day. It was not quite as good as last week. I did not take a day off which makes three weeks of straight exercise. I did continue with 3 sets of push up and setups every other day with 20-40 of them per set.

The above image is the 7 day graph of the steps for week six. I walked 96,861 steps foe an average of 13,508 steps per day.

I burned 4560 Calories this week. That is over 1.1 pounds lost for the week just through exercise. My calculations and the fit bit agree with this measurement.

My best day for exercise was Sunday. I did 47.5 miles this week and averages 6.6 miles per day.

I had 671 active minutes for the six week and averaged 86 minutes a day.

I consumed approximately 1800 calories per day and burned 3400. That means about 1/2 pound per day lost. This would be 3.5 pounds lost in a week.

### Weight:

Clearly, the Fitbit and my actual weight do not agree this week. The Fitbit said I should have lost approximately 3.5 pounds in a week and I gained weight. The first week I have lost a total of 16 pounds in 6 weeks and an average 4 pounds a week.

### Nutrition:

I averaged about 1300-2220 calories which is a deficit on the average of 800 calories a day or 5600 calories a week. That is just under 1.5 pounds on weight loss from my diet.So how did I complete week three successfully. I continued to take in 30-45 grams of fiber and averaged 100-128 ounces of water. I maintained about 1400-1800 calorie per day. I reduce my candy intake this week but I could use more protein.

The above graph shows an intake in protein of 18.5%. Clearly I could use more protein in my diet.

My fiber consumption was 20-50 grams per day this week. I can tell a difference if I have less fiber. I am considerably more hungry.

As I mentioned above, I did plateau this week and will have to step up my exercise this week to start losing again. This happens as your weight drops and so does your calorie requirements. I will either need to burn more or eat less.
