At the weigh-in for week 24, I was up another 0.4 lbs. So, after another week of weight gain, I’m thinking I can several approaches to this: 1) I could simply give up; 2) I could keep doing what I’ve been doing; or 3) I could try adjusting to see if something else will work better. I chose to adjust. I tried some different foods, did a little less snacking, and make sure my portion sizes were in line with where they should be. After adjusting my snacks and meals, I lost 1.8 lbs. at the week 25 weigh-in, making my total weight loss 27.8 lbs.

*For the lasagna, I am using a recipe I received from a friend many years ago. However, I tweaked it to make it lower in WW points. I also used the directions found on Money Saving Mom for freezing and cooking:
My meals are prepped and ready to go for the week using my 5 Dinners 1 Hour meal planning service. I prepped three, but it takes us several days to get through one meal. The good thing is that they will store nicely in the freezer until next week.
Zumba Tuesday-Thursday and Saturday
Tool of the week:
Water bottle/Insulated tumbler – It’s important to drink plenty of water throughout the day. Most days I drink at least 90 oz. I take a full 30 oz. Yeti cup to work with me each morning, along with a large water bottle that I refill later in the day. Then, when it’s Zumba time, I take a second large water bottle with me to class. I also keep my Yeti cup full and by my side in the evenings and drink as much as I can before bedtime. Using reusable water bottles saves me money since I don’t have to buy the bottled stuff, and it cuts down on waste in the process.
