You're having some great results and that's awesome - just make sure you have a plan in place once you hit your goal Just be wary that eating lower cal can sometimes have the opposite effect in the long term. Not that I can judge, I'm currently doing very similar while I bust through a 12 week challenge. But that's where my low cal ends because it cannot be kept up long term.
You may find with doing exercise everyday as well, that your energy levels will be low because you're using up all your fuel. I'm not nagging but I just want you to make sure you're fueling your body with enough! THIS has always been my downfall. As I said, I can't talk per say, as this is what I'm currently doing. But remember this is only short term and try to do as much research as you can on maintaining and slowing things down once you're at that happy weight
All the best and keep us up to date!
P.S I just saw you were in a car accident, hope you're doing okay! Rest up!

You might want to try a cheap source for your salmon. What I do is buy the cooking salmon packet. They are cheaper...the only trade off is that its the off cuts of the nicely sliced ones in the more expensive packs so there is a little fiddling with them as they are not as conveniently packed.
Three coffees for breakfast? Calorie wise that isn't too bad but metabolism wise it could be messing you around a bit. You may want to reconsider that choice (I know it is addictive...but that will pass and the benefits will stay).
Don't worry too much about where you are losing it. Your body will sort itself out in the end in the maintenance part of the journey. When I reached goal my bottom was non-existent and my face was very drawn (to be expected really - weight loss is about stressing the body) but after three months or so I was unable to sit comfortably on a reasonably padded posterior and I generally looked a lot more healthier (and no weight gain).
Wishing you speedy recovery and a successful journey.

Yes I lost the weight but more importantly (although with less glory) have kept it off for two years. It can be done. And if I can do it - anybody can. I just hope my example helps someone step out and believe that they too can do it.
To your better future!

You ate the extra...so now you are obligated to yourself to do extra exercise to work it off.
How we see ourselves and how others see us are often two different things. The mind can play some amazing tricks on our eyes. That is why weighing and measuring yourself can be so helpful - the scales and the tape measure tell it like it is.
Fruit would be a really good idea. It will give you a full feeling and the sugars and fibres are complex are very useful to your body.
What is an "Instant Pad Thai (5g) - 200kcal"? What ever it is, it was nearly as damaging as the ice cream. An apple would have been an healthier snack.
You are doing well...keep it going!

Heartburn is an interesting thing. When I was obese I had a great deal of heartburn but now I don't get it at all. I use to blame spicy or exotic (read healthy here) foods for it. I was wrong, once my food intake became moderate (ie not eating huge amounts) and making healthy choices in what I ate, I found that foods that I once had a low tolerance for (such as a nice juicy apple) became more tastier and didn't cause a problem. I think that may be it wasn't the apple's juices fault but rather the reaction of the lard/fat in my stomach mixing with something healthy!
Keep going...work that lifestyle!
