My workout routine is walking 30-60 mins a day and a workout video 3 times a week. Some days I can eat really good and other days I'm forcing myself to eat. Mostly if I'm snacking a lot the day before then the next 2 days I can barely eat.

I had a complete loss of appetite after removing added sugar and wheat from my diet. I was still eating from 1500 to 1800 calories per day but just was never hungry. After a few weeks my appetite came back but very different. Now I feel hungry but never feel like I could eat a cow.
Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.
I do. Typically, they're preceded or followed by a day that I'm starving and can't get enough food, so it evens out and I just follow my appetite and eat low one day but high the next.
If your appetite is consistently absent, though, and you don't have those opposing days to offset it, are you eating something for breakfast in the morning? I used to skip both breakfast and lunch because my appetite was absent. Eating something in the morning, however, kickstarted my appetite (by way of the blood sugar fluctuations that happen once you begin eating). If I do not eat breakfast or eat it too late in the day, my appetite is typically non-existent. You do not need to eat a lot - just a little something to start your digestive tract revving - and you might see a change.
Are you eating extremely high protein, fat, or fiber at breakfast or at any one point in the day? That can also postponed appetite for extended periods of time. Ideally, you'll want to spread those macronutrients out through your day rather than eating them in one big sitting. Unless, of course, you make it to evening, then...indulge away on protein because it'll keep your tummy working through the night.
