Question I've lost 10 lbs, but I don't know how - can you advise?

From the beginning of this New Year resolution, I've been using to track my calories, protein, sodium, nutrients, etc.

My estimated weightloss math was based on "900 calories equals 1 pound lost". WRONG.
All other sources say "3,500 calories equals 1 pound lost."

And yet, based on my 900 cal/lb math (2570 base cal, 1800 cal diet, 200 cal burned in exercise) I have lost 10 lbs in 11 days. These are the "first" pounds, so they traditionally come off easier than the later ones, thus I've been able to loose them mostly with diet and a little bit of increased activity.

But since my math cannot be right, how am I loosing this weight?!?
