Wednesday Weigh-In: Week 15

It's 9:00 PM and I am just now sitting down to write this. I've been super busy all day!

I'd just gotten out of the shower and into pajamas when I realized I didn't do my token mirror selfie for Wednesday Weigh-In. So I threw on some clothes (including this new Friends t-shirt!) and naturally, Duck followed me into the bathroom to get in the picture.

He was SO insistent that I pet him. He actually wanted me to brush him--he always jumps up on the counter in the bathroom and nudges my brush. And because he trained me well, I always do it, haha.

Anyway, I finally gave up trying to get my usual picture. I like this one better, anyway ;)

He needs to start doing weigh-ins along with me--he's so heavy!

Anyway, I am going to keep this short because I'm exhausted from a long day. I had a great weigh-in this week. My weight was creeping down so slowly over the last month, I knew I was due for a good drop...

I was at 164.2 today; last week I was at 167.8. I lost 3.6 pounds this week--I'm thrilled! So that brings the total to 32.8 pounds over the last 15 weeks.

I didn't do anything differently this week than I normally do. I've learned over the years that as long as I keep doing what I know works for me (I wrote about it in this post), the weight will come off. Some weeks it may be small (last week I'd lost 0.6) and some weeks are like today. But I'm not doing anything differently.

A lot of people have asked me to do a post about what I eat. I used to do that, but I got tired of people telling me how "atrocious" my diet is and everything they thought was wrong with what I was eating (or not eating) and I stopped sharing my food logs. And honestly, my diet is nothing special! I just eat whatever sounds good to me. But I'll try to come up with a post next week detailing some of my typical eats.

Okay, I'm going to read my book and then go to bed. Let's hope I have another good weigh-in next week. I will be thrilled when I finally get back in the 150's!


  1. Your older food posts were really helpful. I remember you took flak for eating grapes, but eating unlimited grapes was what weaned me off a fourth late night meal habit after prednisone sent my appetite off the charts. And when my dietician suggested overnight oats for breakfast I remembered you'd written about those too and got great ideas from your blog:) Looking forward to your notes next week.

  2. WHOO HOO! Also, love you🤗

  3. So awesome!! This is a good reminder. I find that if I don’t lose one week it feels like all of that “work” was for nothing! Will have to try reminding myself to stay the course and that maybe it will show just a week or two from then.

  4. Your reboot is amazing! Thank you so much. Also, I'm so sorry you got grief for what you ate. Why do people argue with success. Keep it up woman. You're a force!

  5. Wow! So happy for you to see that drop this week! Trusting the process really works.
    I totally understand why you’re hesitant about posting your food when people are so negative. I can’t imagine those are successful people. They must be down on themselves and take it out on you when you’ve figured out something that works for you. It’s sad how people can be! Selfishly I wish you could still post here and there because I just love to see someone who can diet with just normal foods.
    I’m so inspired by your ability to stick with this. Do you ever get that “what the hell” feeling and just start snacking and want to blow it for the day on calories? That’s my downfall, like, everyday…

  6. Looking forward to hitting my stride and doing what I know works best for me ... thanks for the inspiration.

  7. For all those who are inspired by Katie like I am--- Christmas is 15 weeks away! If we start today we could be 32.8 lbs thinner!

  8. Your progress is so inspiring!!! I have been off the wagon for a few weeks but this is the kick in the pants I needed to keep going. I'm down about 16 pounds and would like to lose 20 more.
