Wednesday Weigh-In: Week 122

I feel about as good as I look in this picture, haha. I just showered and put on my pajamas and it's not even 5:00 pm. I've been feeling for about a week now like I'm getting sick--it started with a non-stop headache, then a sore throat, and now a cough. I just wish that if I was getting sick, it would happen already! I took a COVID test, which was negative, and my symptoms haven't been bad at all. Just really annoying, especially the headache.

Anyway, I actually decided not to do a weigh-in this week. I've only skipped out a few times in the last couple of years, but I just really didn't want to get on the scale today. When Jerry gets sick, he drops a good 6-8 pounds because he loses his appetite. When I get sick, especially with a sore throat, I eat way too much!

I haven't been eating all sorts of junk food or anything, though. I've been eating my usual food, just too much of it. It may not have affected my weight all that much, but I woke up feeling bloated and just kind of crummy altogether, so I am going to skip my weekly weigh-in.

Like I've told myself in the past, though, I will not skip two weeks in a row. That's when I know that I'm headed way off course! So, no matter how I feel next week, I'm going to do my accountability weigh-in on Wednesday.

This upcoming week will be a good indicator of how well I'm going to be able to manage times like this on maintenance. There will always be times where I eat too much or eat the "wrong" foods, and to be successful at maintenance, I'll have to learn how to navigate that.

A question that I get asked frequently is how I get back on track after a weight gain or just a bad week or month or even year. I honestly don't have an answer for that! I wish I did. I know that the longer the amount of time that passes, the harder it is to get back on track, so I'm going to keep that in mind this week.

Something that always helps is to stay very busy. Since I've been sick (my headache is the worst part), I haven't been very active during the day. So I'm hoping that once I feel a little better, I can get back to the norm!
