Weigh In Wednesday #15

weigh in wednesdayI’m within 5 pounds of my first goal!! Pre-baby weight. It was so nice to step on the scale and see a 3 in the ten’s place. There’s a little elementary math for you.  Two months ago my goal was to keep my weight fluctuations within the 250’s and that seemed like it would never happen. Progress feels nice.

This week I also identified two reasons that will keep me from losing weight. They are:

  1. Copious amounts of macadamia nuts
  2. Chocolate almond butter (it’s better than frosting)

In moderation these are both healthy treats, but when eaten with reckless abandon, well you know.

Something I’ve also been trying, which started as a way of getting Porter to eat the food served at meal time, was the elimination of snacking. Don’t judge me, he still eats regularly, but now he (usually) eats at mealtime instead of grazing on snack foods all day long. The schedule looks like this: breakfast, lunch, PM snack, dinner. So far the results have been great and I spend less time in the kitchen preparing healthy snacks all day long. This also means that I snack less too, which feels good. I’m forced to find other things to do with all that spare time I’ve got these days (NOT!)


22 pounds feels a lot different than it looks.
