Wednesday Weigh-In: Week 93

I just realized I'm approaching Week 100 since I started losing weight (in May 2021). Not that 100 is a big deal in this case, but it's one of those nice, round numbers that feels special somehow. I immediately started thinking of some sort of challenge I can do between now and Week 100, but I am going to nip that in the bud right now. The only thing I want to be focused on is staying in good eating habits (and training for the 10K with Nathan).

I had a pretty good week; there were a couple of days, however, that I ended up eating all out of whack (by that, I just mean not like my typical day or circumstances). It's been very hard not to eat emotionally lately; I've still got a lot of personal stuff I'm dealing with and hopefully I'll be able to write about it soon. I've managed to keep from snacking every night, though, so I'd hoped that I would see another nice loss on the scale... unfortunately, that wasn't the case.

I was at 144.6, which is exactly where I was last week. I can't say I'm surprised, though--my weight hasn't really budged all week. Last week, I'd lost over three pounds, so it's possible that I didn't lose anything this week because I dropped so much last week. I'm not going to analyze it!

Since Jerry wants to work on portion sizes this week, I thought it would be a good time for me to do that, too. Like I said yesterday, I tend to eat more just because something is plant-based--it's like my mind subconsciously assumes it's healthy. I have a very hard time weighing and/or measuring my food once I get out of that habit, but I've gotten back into the routine where I eat the same breakfast and lunch. If I eat a "normal" sized dinner and a healthy snack in the evening, I should be eating about the right amount of calories I need for the day.

My routine is going to be thrown way off at the end of the month, because I'm going to Illinois to dog-sit for my sister's basset hounds. I am going to be totally out of my element, and staying away from home for the first time since becoming vegan, so I'm not sure how it's going to go. I'm not worried about eating vegan--I can live on bread and peanut butter if I need to--but I don't want to throw off my weight loss mojo! ;) 

This is SO nerdy but I'm actually pretty excited right now to go into the kitchen and mix up some spice blends, haha. There are several that I like to make large jars of to keep in the pantry and we're running low on a few of them. I don't know why I find it so fun to mix spices in the blender!

Anyway, hoping (as always) for a good week ahead :)

By the way, today is Luke's sixth birthday. Can you believe that I've been an aunt for SIX YEARS now? I think we're going to take Luke and Riley to Barnes & Noble for their birthday tradition (choose a "book" for your birthday, where "book" usually always ends up being a toy, haha). I always enjoy taking them there--it's like being a kid again!


  1. Are you taking Joey to your sister's place? We haven't seen much about him! Hope he's well! :)

    1. If all goes according to plan, yes--he'll be coming with me :) He LOVES Jeanie's dog Remy, and he has yet to meet her senior dog she recently adopted. I do need to write more about Joey, though--he's such a great dog!

    2. Yay! He'll have fun! I remember the photos she would send you of him all tuckered out from running around with her dog! SO cute!


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)
