Getting it together...

RE: Getting it together...
I would hang tight right where you are for a couple of weeks and see what happens. If you continue to see increases that last for a a couple more weeks, then definitely dial it back by 100 or so and you will be right at your current TDEE. Remember, any time spent at or over TDEE "counts" towards your reset, so there is no reason to fear eating over your TDEE. IMO, better to reset on the higher end of things than the lower end. You are doing awesome - just stay consistent and you will see great results!

UPDATE:

Week 10: 6/19 - 6/25: 201.3 lbs., 2767 avg. eaten, 2864 avg. burn
Week 11: 6/26 - 7/2: 201.7 lbs., 2936 avg. eaten
Week 12: 7/3 - 7/9: 204.9 lbs., 2710 avg. eaten
Week 13: 7/10 - 7/16: 205.8., 2682 avg. eaten (low day from having a wisdom tooth removed)
Current: 7/17 - 7/22: 206.7

I'm thinking that I have surpassed my TDEE, and I should scale it back to 2600, where my weight seemed to be stable. Any thoughts? :-)

You are doing great! And remember, there is absolutely nothing wrong with eating over your TDEE. It's the only way you can ever truly determine what your TDEE is. Keep on chugging!

UPDATE:

Week 14: 7/17 - 7/22: 206.7 lbs., 2649 daily avg.
Week 15: 7/24 - 7/30: 205.5 lbs., 2556 daily avg.
Week 16: 7/31 - 8/6: 206.9 lbs., 2401 daily avg. (Start of cut)
Week 17: 8/7 - 8/13: 206.4 lbs., 2283 daily avg.
Week 18: 8/14 - 8/20: 205.7 lbs., 2238 daily avg.
Week 19: 8/21 - 8/27: 205.6 lbs., 1881 daily avg.
Week 20: 8/28 - 9/3: 204 lbs., 2137 daily avg.
Week 21: 9/4 - 9/10: 206.7 lbs., 2595 daily avg.
Week 22: 9/11 - 9/17: 205.6 lbs., 2166 daily avg.
Week 23: 9/18 - 9/24: 205.2 lbs., 2005 daily avg.
Week 24: 09/25 - 10/1: 205.8 lbs. 2141 daily avg.
Week 25: current: 207.2

As you can see, I have remained steady despite my cut. My cut was supposed to be about 2370 (10%), but I haven't had luck with meeting that most weeks. Maybe my cut is too large? Where should I go from here?

Personally, I would go back up to TDEE for a few weeks and then try another cut, really trying to keep it in that 10 - 15% range. You don't want your deficit to be too steep and you want to try to keep it fairly consistent, so your body doesn't just thing this is another roller coaster diet. You you still getting some strength training in?

Thank you for your reply. I'll eat at 2600 or more for the next two weeks, and hopefully that will get me back on track. I'm still at the same activity level: weight training 2x per week and power/vinyasa yoga 2x per week. My average steps, according to FitBit, is 11,000 per day. I hope I see this turn around soon.

I have subscribed to your journal - fitness trackers, weekly averages, tooth aches and all.
Reading through your journal at points felt like reading my own story I will definitely be keeping an eye out for how you deal with your cuts.

This journey ain't easy huh?
