Wednesday Weigh-In : Week 41

As uneventful as this week was, it sure did fly by. The snow melted and I'm so excited for it to be spring; but we ALWAYS have an unexpected March snowstorm, so I'm not getting my hopes up. This is going to be a quick post, because I'm not sure what to write about other than my actual weigh-in. 

Last week, my weight was down just a little. I'd expected that because I'd had a large loss the week before. As I've mentioned before, somehow my weight has started this pattern each week:

Lose, lose, gain... lose, lose, gain... lose, lose, gain...

And after two losses in a row, I was super motivated to break the two-steps-forward-one-step-back pattern. There were two days in a row--I think Thursday and Friday?--that I was ravenous for some reason and I ate much more than usual. The food I ate was healthy, but the calories add up for sure. For the rest of the week, though, I ate around 1600 calories each day.

I hoped it would be good enough for my weigh-in today. When I got on the scale this morning:

I was at 148.6. Last week, I was at 148.0, so I gained a little--not much, but it was enough to continue the "lose, lose, gain" cycle. I'm not worried about it because I ate healthy food and I didn't binge; I feel good about how I ate. That brings the total to 49 pounds lost in 41 weeks.

I can't really think of anything I'd like to change this week; usually I like to have some sort of goal in mind (like drinking more water). I've actually been doing pretty good with water lately. So I will keep doing what I'm doing and see what happens. Hopefully, the gain on the scale this week means I'll have a decent loss next week!

Here is the random fact of the day (or every few days, I guess, since I always forget to post it!):

I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that it circles the earth every 90 minutes--I can't even picture what that would look or feel like. Just the thought of it gives me vertigo! I was curious though, so I actually looked it up (I was more interested in the speed than the expense). It travels at 4.76 miles per SECOND and has a maximum speed of about 17,150 miles per hour. That is no less than terrifying to me!


  1. Trust your process. I think we have to accept these fluctuations. Your trend is downward, but I why you're frustrated.

  2. Katie, the space station and people in it might be moving that fast, but they don't feel the motion. They feel just like they are floating. For example, if you're in a speeding car, you don't feel the motion once you're done speeding up and reach an unchanging speed. There are lots of videos online that show the astronauts in the ISS and what's it's like to be in free fall.


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
