Week 1: 204.1
Week 2: 202.1 - Yeah!!! 2 lbs down!

Goals this week:
Stay on diet track. Monday was a bad eating day. I was hungry and instead of eating a bit more calories of only good food, I ate more good food and 3 chocolate chip cookies and 1 oreo cookie. Not on plan, that's for sure.
Continue to focus on progress, not perfection. But on the other hand, what the lazy call obsessed the strong call dedicated (or something like that).
Do all my workouts, even if they're not 100% effort. It's more important to complete my commitments than it is to do them perfectly.
Plan my FTP test using the power tap next Tuesday.
Do the B level group ride Thursday and don't freak out when I get dropped on the hills again
Lose 2lbs.

I said I was going to join in, so here's my first official weight. I weighed myself last night but didn't see the thread until today.

Week One: 215.5

Today is my day to drive in to work, to give my sit bones a break and to get to corporate softball on time. I'm doing pretty good so far considering I was over 220 a week ago. I'm enjoying this a ton so far, I'll miss the bike today.

ok update for the last week. Still no Cycling but diet seems to be working

Week 23 - 244 lbs
week 24 - 239 lbs

A loss of 5lbs in the week and me back at my all time losest I believe (apart from when I was on the way up *LOL*)

Goal this week is to try ride at least once and to keep on the diet. That plus a loss of 2lbs would be sweet

Making good progress back to where I was before vacation, goals this week are to eat better and exercise more. I'm adding more lifting into the routine and riding the exercise bike again since there's been so much rain and busy stuff going on. I need to remember to buy some rice cakes for commute snacks, I've been getting over-hungry and eating bigger and later dinners, both of which are no good for me.

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
Week 18 - 269.4 lbs
Week 19 - 271.2 lbs
Week 20 - 270.5 lbs
Week 21 - 268.1 lbs
Week 22 - 274.5 lbs
Week 23 - 271.5 lbs
Week 24 - 269.5 lbs

Was on vacation last week. Good news: was able to rent a bike and ride a bit most days. Bad news: that probably didn't make up for exploring the wonderful restaurants on Key West. (If you're ever there, go to a place called "Azur"!)

Anyway: 199.8

I'm starting this week too. My weight Monday was 241.5 lbs.

My goals this week are to eat better foods and to ease back into a regular workout routine.
