Quick Weigh-In


It's been a very busy week and I am *still* busy! So here is a quick recap of my week and weigh in:

last week's weight: 180
high weight this week: 182 (Tues - Thurs)
low weight this week: 180 (yesterday)
today's weight: 181 (thanks, chicken fried steak!)

Feeling good and my schedule should slow down in about a week, and then I will focus on getting into a new, lower weight range. I spent almost 6 weeks in the 184-189 range, and then the past 4 weeks in the 180-185 range. One more week of that, probably, and then I'd like to try and see the 170's!

Is that IG all you eat? Or is there more you don't share?

I think there she doesn't show it all. Didn't see the Golden Oreos, Doritos or candy 😬

No, I don't take pictures of everything. I think this week I only posted 8 photos! I'd be starving if that's all I ate. I drink a lot of iced decaf coffee with cream and this week for snacks I ate nuts, cheese, pickles, berries, cantaloupe, apples, chips with dip, sugar free ice cream, caprese salad, etc. Today I had coffee a few times, a bratwurst with mustard and a few French fries and a peach for lunch, some chips and dip and a slice of cheese, and a donut. I have not had a donut in a looong time and it was good, but I probably won't want another one for another 6 months! I might have the last piece of corn on the cob for dinner.

I'm so torn between cheering for you and saying uh oh..... The continued weight loss seems like a good thing but I honestly don't understand how it can be happening with your current food choices. I hope all is well and you continue to feel great as you work your way down to the next weight range ~

Is your CFS essentially a fried hamburger patty? Also, are those fresh or canned green beans?

Lyn said...

torn Anon~

I keep portions pretty small. I probably should state I almost never eat everything on my plate. Like the last couple dinner pics on Instagram... I ended up giving about half the meat to the dogs and half the potatoes in the trash. I thought I had made my portions according to appetite but then was satisfied with less. Thanks for the well wishes!

usually I use cube steak but didn't have any, so made a similar, thin beef "patty" with ground beef and seasonings. Then dipped it in milk, then seasoned flour, then egg, then flour again. Fried in avocado oil the first time and Crisco the second time. The green beans are canned.

Yay for normalizing foods and having continued success! I agree that this is the way to keep your mind from sabatoging you so you can continue long term! I don't know anyone who only eats "good" 100% of the time, it just seems when someone is trying to lose weight they are under the microscope of scrutiny. Keep up the awesome work! I don't think there's anyway you are not going into the 170's soon. It's very inspiring!

Well you’ve made it (again). Lol. Once you have enough success the well wishers back off and the food police chime back up. I’d consider that a milestone, Lyn!
Keep eating what you want- if you’re having success and you like it- then no more needs to be said.

I know when I lost weight, there were a couple of well meaning family members that were just waiting for me to fail so they could put me back in my place.

Really nice to see you doing your own thing. I definitely see more loss in your future. You’re going to do this. And then let’s see what the food police have to say about your Doritos then. Lmao.

Lyn said...

Thanks Amy and anon! I really enjoy my food without guilt, eat what I want (partly because what I want has changed: now that I can have anything without feeling bad about it, I don't binge on junk!) This week I have eaten more sugar that usual, mainly because I have been busy and it gives me a burst of energy (plus who doesn't like a donut once in awhile??) but after having a very tasty ice cream cone yesterday (peanut butter chocolate) I realized I no longer feel driven to eat more and more after that kind of indulgence. I may have to write a little about that when I have time :)

But why did you bread and FRY your hamburger instead of just having it grilled?

Lyn said...

FRY anon~

Because it's crunchy and it tastes good!

Anonymous said...

You could say the same for deep-fried butter from a carnival midway - it's crunchy and it tastes good. I think we your readers assume you are aspiring to attain some level of health.

Lyn said...

butter Anon (are you FRY anon?)~

I've never tried it, but melted butter doesn't really sound very good to me. I would probably give it a try if it appealed to me, but I'm more inclined to have a caramel apple at the fair. Oh, don't worry, I am much healthier at 180 pounds than I was at 280! And believe it or not, my eating is much better, too!

Are you concerned at all about your taste for junk foods and unhealthy food? Not being critical, just wondering if you plan to address it.

Lyn said...

non-critical Anon~

Yes. I sometimes wonder if that is possible to totally change. I have been "junk free" in the past for months at a time, but never have lost the taste for it. My goal is to eat *less* junk and to keep the weight off in a calm and low stress way, which I have accomplished. Restriction triggers obsessive food thoughts for me, and I would rather be living a happy life free from that driving, intrusive obsession than to be 100% cupcake free.

OMG, Lyn - Texan here and sorry/not sorry but I have had fried butter and you would love it, I think! It’s made by using *frozen* butter that is dipped in a honey and cinnamon flavored batter, deep-fried until golden brown, and then coated in a confectioner's sugar glaze like you get on a Krispy Kreme donut (please tell me you’ve had one of *those*). You should have it at least once in your life.

To some people it tastes like the most amazing French toast, other’s say it taste like the most buttery bread they’ve ever had. There’s not really any melted butter when you eat it. The butter liquifies into the sweet bread coating during the frying process.

YOU do YOU, girl, and forget about the haters. They are just jealous that you are getting skinny and eating all the stuff they would LOVE to eat! They are mad that they are eating twigs and sticks and are still fat. Ha!

LOL... that gave me a good chuckle this morning! Good to know about the fried butter. Maybe someone in my group will get it and I can try a bite :) Thanks for the encouragement!
