Lets keep this going, I want to track for the entire year, even if it means I end on this plateau, it will still mean that I lost 35+ lbs and kept it off and that would be ok. To be honest, I don't have the motivation to loose more right now, but I'll be damned if I'm going to put it back on.

Starting weight for the week: 295 lbs.

Goal for the week: Get this junk food monkey off my back!

Week 24 - 311 (The week that my wife, and therefore by proxy I, joined Weight Watchers)
Week 44 - 297
Week 45 - 295

I was surprised to have lost weight this week; I have been gorging myself on Halloween candy. As addicts are fond of saying, "One's too many and a thousand is never enough."

278.6 - Down a little from last week, but up from a few days ago. The next two weeks are going to be rough for me. I'm stuck playing Mr. Mom everyday and then I have orchestra rehearsals for West Side Story every night. Next week is the performances. Plus I have a birthday feast next Monday. After all that wraps up, we're into Thanksgiving week! It'll be a bloody miracle if I can find a way to just keep my head on my shoulders and not go through a huge backslide! Pray for me, folks!

218.5

I've had some similar difficulties the last week, and this week as well. Too many unplanned dinners out, too many catered gallery crawl evenings, to many all-day seminars with provided "meals." The two remaining days until Saturday's weigh-in won't even begin to make up for the bad choices I've made recently. I feel like I'm back at 250. It's really weird how all of this plays with your head.

I've been sorely lacking motivation this week. At least I didn't gain anything. I'm going to focus on getting more intense this week.
