Wow, that is great! I think that you are right on track. In fact I'm pretty darn shocked that what you are doing is working so well, but I will try not to be jealous.
Some of that 15 lb loss is probably water (that is how people on the biggest loser can cut 30 lbs in a week)
A note about that 3200 calories = 1lb loss thing. It has been proven again and again to not be true. The calorie deficit you need actually totally depends on your genetics (so thank your parents, because you got a good deal) The largest ever diet study ever conducted came out last year. It found that the average person actually had to have an over 10,000 calorie deficit to lose a lb.
Keep up the good work.
