Weekly Weigh In (4.10.19)

There was once a time where I would weigh myself every single morning and it would dictate my mood for that day. Whether I was going to have a good or bad day. Then I started to notice much more progress in spite of the scale, so I stopped weighing myself all together and just doing measurements and pictures once a month. This is all fine and well, but like my Dr said, sometimes we have to check in with the scale just like I have to check my blood sugars. Type 2 Diabetes and it’s reversal relies heavily on reducing weight/body fat.

So once a week I send my Dr my blood sugars and she wants me to go ahead and weigh myself once a week too. So, here we are. That being said, let me first say how weird my body can be. I have hovered between 199 and 205 for YEARS. I will get down to 199 and without changing ANYTHING. I will be up the next time I weigh in, usually around 204 or 205 and then I work my day down again.

Last week I was at 203.6

Here’s today:

That’s a 3.6 lb loss. Not too shabby, but we’ll see what happens next week!

    So, where are you in the mitten (I assume that means Michigan)? I lived in Okemos (East Lansing area) for seven years, and LOVED it. I’m an Iowa Hawkeye, but have a huge fondness for the MSU Spartans.

    Weighing myself once a week still dictates my mood. I know it shouldn’t but it does. My weight does the same damn thing. I don’t understand it at all. Of course it doesn’t help that I am older and now have a low functioning thyroid. When I do see a loss one week I don’t get my hopes up that it is real unless it stays down for more than a week.
