Not a great week for weight but a great week of riding. Stayed at 199lbs, rode over 400km but ate like a monster. This week I am staying more focused on diet and work will not allow any more than say 200k riding.

Can I skip this week? Gained back 2 pounds, went out to breakfast at the all-you-can-eat buffet. Believe me, I did NOT eat all I could eat, but I did eat too much. It was good. Also, I ate some salty food this week, so I'm hoping it's mostly water, but I guess we'll see how long the gain hangs around.

Week 2 - 295 lbs (start)
Week 3 - 291.5 lbs
Week 4 - 284.4 lbs
Week 5 - 282.5 lbs
Week 6 - 280.2 lbs
Week 7 - 281.3 lbs
Week 8 - 282.0 lbs
Week 9 - 280.0 lbs
Week 10 - 278 lbs
Week 11 - 279.5 lbs
Week 12 - 274.3 lbs
Week 13 - 272.7 lbs
Week 14 - 271.8 lbs
Week 15 - 272.5 lbs
Week 16 - 267.9 lbs
Week 17 - 269.8 lbs
