Wednesday Weigh In: 3 Scale-Less Weeks!

46 Comments 2452 views

Part of me wanted to sneak on the scale this morning, but I decided it wasn’t worth it. I’ve been KILLING it at the gym.

Killing it.

I don’t talk about it much, but I’m seriously addicted to CrossFit. I’ve been going consistently for 6 months and I can’t get over the progress I’ve made. I love the challenge, the variety, the atmosphere. It’s truly become my outlet and even though I have to get up early to go, I look forward to it daily.

I won’t bore you with my obsession. I’ve already posted 5 Reasons Why I Love CrossFit in February and it’s all still true. 

Anyway, this past week has been great but busy. In all honesty, we’ve been eating out a bit more than normal. With the conference just 2 weeks away, I’m having a hard time keeping up with everything else. On the days I have childcare I barely leave my computer and on the days I don’t, I try to fully disconnect so I’m not constantly distracted around the 2-year-old.  I’m in a pattern overall, but it’s a little stressful.

Other than that, not much else is going on. I was planning on replying to all the weigh-in comments last week but the time got away from me. Looks like most of you did great but there was a dip in participation so I wonder how many of you have just walked away.

You don’t have to actually hop on the scale to “weigh in.” Use Wednesday as a day to reflect on the prior week, the weekend, etc. If you want to set a small goal this week, let us know in the comments and we’ll check in with you next week.  Goal achieving is only possible if you commit and that includes facing the “bad” weeks just as you would the “good” ones.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I haven’t been weighing myself but I’ve been doing my 1 mile per day that the doctor is allowing me at this point and making healthy food choices.

    I’m trying to get into a new groove with my blogs. I’ve missed a lot, with Reader going away next month, I’ve stopped using it as much and I’m not finding anything I like to take its place, which is the reason for my lack of participation in anything these days. I’m also PMS’ing, so I’m not getting on the scale until next Monday, when it should be safer.

      I still don’t get why they are dropping it. It’s seems to be so popular and needed!

    I agree, weighing in doesn’t need to include the scale – but for me, I’m still at a point where I benefit from the scale. I’m not surprised by the gain – had a 3 day vacation, eating out, enjoying food and drinks and lots of pasta! Not sure why, but pasta was what I was craving this week. Enjoyed our getaway and am now focused again. To be honest, it was more, but getting right on track when we got home helped keep the gain manageable. Moderation and enjoying life. Now I just need to move more! Looking forward to hearing about everyone’s weeks.

      I needed the scale for years, I totally get it. As for moving more, you should join our streak! It’s gotten me out for a short run every day since memorial day!

    I’m happy with my progress lately. Wow, did I say that?!?!?! I’m not where I expected to be by now, but I’m good with it. I had been on a plateau at 217 for literally two months, but in the last few weeks, it seems that I have FINALLY broken through. I’m doing not one thing differently, but all that hard work is apparently belatedly paying off. :)

    I’m up a bit from last week but I’m still in my comfort zone so it’s all good. I can already tell this summer is going to be a challenge…getting a new routine for my workouts with all the kids activities to work around. BUT I’ve been getting up before everyone and getting things done before the day starts which has been working out well. I’ve paid for an unlimited 3 month yoga for the summer and have already gone a few times. There is something about a frosty beer and refreshing gin and tonic that I have noticed more frequently…cough. So I am trying to find a compromise to this increased consumption…I’m hoping things will even themselves out with the increased activities outside…if the weather just cooperates!

    That is one seriously inspiring photo up there. You look amazing Roni. Weight wise I’m still hovering around 147. I had a bad morning the other day, reverted back to some old binge eating habits, but stopped and moved on. I started training for my 3rd full marathon this week. My little guy graduated from Kindergarten last night so my emotions have been all over the place. It’s going to be an awesome summer. We have a Color Run and an Electric Run we are doing together. We are looking forward to completing a summer bucket list. I’m not sure how I will approach weighing myself, but it’s not going to be everyday any more. I’m not sure if I will continue to lose weight. I hope so, but I’m not going to beat myself up if I continue to maintain. I wore a beautiful size 6 dress to my son’s graduation last night. I felt beautiful. I cannot remember a time when I was able to wear this size. My son seemed just as proud of me as I was of him even though he knows nothing about my weight struggles. Both my husband and son proclaimed that I looked beautiful. It meant all the more because for the first time in my life I actually felt beautiful.

    Good luck with the conference. I hope to attend one of these years. It looks like a lot of fun. I’ve been reading you for over 6 years and you continue to inspire.

    This week I was having a lot of stomach issues. Eating was light, lots of water was consumed, and nights were fitful. I was sad to hear that I need to ease up on the crunchy raw veggies and acidic things like caffeine, citrus, and tomatoes (they all irritate my swollen esophagus) My sodium has been through the roof. This week: more water, at least one episode of intentional exercise, and feel grateful for family at Father’s Day get-togethers.

    Tiny (or huge?) epiphany this morning. I used to think bad habits lead to weight gain, which in turn lead to lousy mood. It just hit me this morning that I now feel that bad habits lead to weight gain AND lousy mood but the mood is more a product of the habits than the weight gain. Just another way I’m breaking the mindset that it’s all about the scale. In reality, it’s all about the life I’m living.

    sorry to have missed last week, i was on vacation and had an amazing time. i came home and weighed myself and was 220. next day 223. i think some is salt but maybe the 220 was wrong?

    i donno, this week i have been doing tons better, back on track. i ate chinese food last night so i’m hoping some is salt but i have no idea what is going on with my weight. which tells me i am not as focused as i could be

    but better momentum, tracking food. i did eat half of a huge rice crispy treat with m&m’s this morning at 9 am. UGH but i too have been killing it at the gym

    hope you all had a great week, glad to be back annie

    Over the weekend my oldest daughter moved 3 hours away to live with her dad for her senior year. She goes with him every summer, but this time she’s not coming back and it hit me hard. I won’t see her again until Christmas break. I went into a tailspin. I was very depressed for a couple of days. Then I lied to myself and said I was going to do this “big” cheat day that a lot of people talk about that supposedly tricks your metabolism into firing up. 1) I hadn’t been eating all that great the prior week leading up to her departure. 2) It was just and excuse to eat emotionally like I used to eat because I wanted to be numb. 3) It made me feel like crud.

    Yesterday I put my big girl pants on and decided to be proactive. So I’m doing my second Reboot with Joe. This time I’m doing 5 days, last time I did 3. I have a long way to go to get to goal. I’m learning some valuable lessons along the way. Sometimes you have to mess up to get it right. This is usually around the time I give up and revert to old habits. Not this time. This time I’m pushing through.

      June 13, 2013

      welcome to the weigh in. whoa do i know about that emotional eating too. good luck with the reboot, i have no idea what it is but i always feel better with a little plan/goals

      Karen H.

      June 19, 2013

      Thanks Annie. The reboot is a juicing plan. It’s supposed to help an ex-fast food junkie like me “reboot” my system to crave fruits and veggies. :-) It’s been semi-successful.

    You ARE killing it aren’t you! I have been killing logging all my food last week and the last couple of days I’ve been avoiding the night time snacking. My goal is to continue with both and HOPEFULLY hit 245 next week for a total loss of 60 pounds! Today is a hungry day though and I didn’t make the greatest choice for dinner. I have to learn not to buy into that perfection lie don’t I? Anyhow,off to MFP. Everyone have a great week!

    OK, so I haven’t been weighing in and you totally called us all out on it…lol! Anyway, due to the fact that I am growing a human I am not weighing in at the moment ;) This week has been crazy with family in town, I’m eating like crap and feeling like crap….go figure. My goal for this pregnancy is to NOT gain 70lbs and try and continue running for as long as I possibly can.

    Highest 260
    Lowest 160
    Currently 171.5
    I’m taking a page out of your book and trying to enjoy now… I have realized that I will be on this journey for the rest of my life!

    Sorry, Roni I haven’t posted in a few weeks partially because of frustration with my weight not really going anywhere, but also I have alot of problems with my work computer giving me access to post here & then I forget when I get home.
    Congrats on the CF, it actually makes me a little jealous, I think I would really like it, but I honestly don’t think I can make time for it, unless I gave up running (or ran alot less) & spent less time with the hubby, which is a non-negotiable for me. I already get up around 4am M-F (most days) & run on my treadmill or do yoga. Then I take a walk & lift weights @ work during my lunch.
    So, I guess i’m dragging on as usual, SORRY!! As always, THANKS for all you do Roni. Love all your blogs.

      June 18, 2013

      Ugh! I hear you! Crossfit really took a bite out of my running. That’s one of the reasons I started the running streak. I missed it! But I guess wanting to get in more exercise is a good problem to have compared NOT wanting to do anything at all. :) I wish I could carve out an extra 2 hours a week for yoga but I just can’t seem to make it happen. :(

    Checking in, on an admittedly “bad” week. Not because of foods being “bad” because I don’t believe in good/bad foods, but because I didn’t plan. I didn’t fill my fruit basket, and didn’t have yogurt in the fridge. My goal this week is a meal plan by Sunday AM for the coming week. Even if I don’t stick to it completely, I need to have a plan.

      RoniNoone

      June 18, 2013

      I hear you! I’ve been eating out way too much because I have no plan! I just stocked up so I’m hoping that helps this week. :)

    It only took me two days to get in–my home computer closes nearly every time I try to get in here on Wednesday and I can’t use my school computer in the summer–ugh!! I lost weight BUT I have to lose about 20 pds more before I’m even back where I was and I was just hoping to lose 10 pds this year. I don’t think I can lose 30 pds by the last Saturday in August but I really need to get to work on losing something. I thought summer vacation would be the motivation I needed but it is really hot here for June and ice cream has been calling my name–banana stuff has not done it for me lately. I need an attitude adjustment–and quick.
    Hope everyone else is more motiviated and has a good week.

    Wed my daughter turned 10. We went out for hibachi they didn’t have brown rice :( I lost 0.5 this week, I’ll take it. I’m doing Jaime Eason’s LiveFit trainer I just completed week 3. The weight is coming off super s-l-o-w, but I’m not hung up on it. I’m getting stronger each week as I increase the weights that I’m lifting. I like the program so far and I’ve been blogging about it on BTL. I’m going to stick with it, if nothing else I will be stronger and more fit after the 12 weeks are up!

      RoniNoone

      June 18, 2013

      I sometimes just skip the rice and ask for double veggies. :) And you will definitely we stronger!
