Wednesday Weigh-In: Week 98

It's so weird to me when I flip my photo in order to be able to read my shirt--I'm not used to seeing myself that way! But I wore this shirt deliberately because today is the nicest day we've had so far this year--sunny and warm enough to open all the windows in the house. I'm so glad that the weather is turning!

I'm at Week 98 since I started working hard at losing the weight I'd gained in 2018-2020-ish. It's hard to believe it's been that long--as I approach 100 weeks, of course my brain starts thinking of something special or significant to do for Week 100.

It's been a few weeks since I did an "official" weigh-in on my blog. Two weeks ago, I went to my sister's house in Illinois and didn't post a weigh-in that day. Then I didn't want to do a weigh-in last week because my weight had gone up SO much during the week I spent at my sister's.

I honestly did not eat very badly while I was there. Jerry and I only went out to dinner once; the rest of the time, we ate at the house. We'd gone grocery shopping and bought mostly healthy food. I think I just ate a lot more than I was used to at home. When I'm at home, I typically stick with a routine for meals (when things aren't hectic) but at Jeanie's, we did a lot of sitting around and eating. It was great to be able to have a lazy week, though!

Anyway, want to know how much I gained while at Jeanie's? TEN POUNDS. That's the most I've ever gained while on a trip--even when we went to Punta Cana. I knew it couldn't have been an accurate representation of my week, so I chose not to even bother with a weigh-in last week.

This past week still wasn't back to "normal" as far as meals go, but that's because baseball season started for Eli and I'm trying to get the hang of scheduling dinner around games and all that. Thankfully, though, my weight went back down. My last weigh-in, on March 22, I was at 141.8. Today, I was happy to see that I was even lower than that--even after the huge gain at my sister's.

I was at 140.6 this morning, so I'm down 1.2 pounds. It's definitely not a large loss considering it's been a few weeks, but I'm glad that it's still going in the right direction. I'm hoping to see the 130's next week.

While my diet hasn't been ideal--eating whatever I can grab whenever I have time--I've been doing really well in regards to snacking. A lot of times, I've not been able to eat dinner until 9:00 pm so I'm not hungry for a snack after that.

This week, I hope to start eating more regularly (at the very least for breakfast and lunch). I loved the suggestions on yesterday's post about batch cooking, and I'm going to try to spend a morning doing that this weekend; I think Sunday is the next non-baseball-game day, so if we don't have anything else going on, I'm going to hopefully get some meals in the freezer.

Overall, I feel positive about my weigh-in this week and I feel like I'm going to have a good upcoming week!

  1. That's amazing that your weight came back down that quickly after the trip. Bodies are phenomenal when we take care of them.
