Math not adding up. Why am I not losing a lot of weight?

Mid-twenties male, eating extremely healthily, exercising very well, very happy with his setup here. But very curious why the pounds wouldn't just be falling off now, when they were at a maintenance level when I had the reverse habits as recently as a few months ago. (Or even any weight loss at all.) [more inside]

iPhone App that tracks Blood pressure, weight, Type II diabetes, exercise routines and calories?

Is there an iPhone App that tracks ALL of the following aspects of health: Blood pressure, weight, Type II diabetes, exercise routines and calories (aka food consumption)? There's plenty of apps that track 2 or 3 of these things, but is there one that tracks ALL of them?

Can I apply exercise calories to the next day?

When one is dieting by maintaining a small calorie deficit, is it appropriate to apply calories burned via one day's exercise to the next day's calorie total? Since I can't predict beforehand what days I'll have an opportunity to exercise, I can't plan ahead. Since I exercise rather late in the evening, binging the amount of calories after I return (directly before bed) would probably send 'em directly to my waist regardless of how much I'd just exercised.

Why does reading seem less sedentary than watching TV or surfing the web?

Reading, watching TV, and surfing the web. All three of these involve equal levels of inactivity -- so why is it that I only think of TV watchers and computer users as "at risk" for sedentary-lifestyle health issues, but not avid readers? Why is it that I feel like I'm burning more calories when I'm curled up with a book than when I'm clicking with my mouse?
