Back in the saddle again.  I did not drop as much as I wanted, but I am definitely back on track.  I have six more Fridays until my sister's wedding (which in and of itself is baffling to me) and at this kind of a pace I should hit my goal of 270 or below by the day. It is nice to have a more immediate goal towards which I can work.  I had been missing the milestones that I had earlier in the process.  Now that I have a few goals to look forward to I think I can make some more consistent progress.  Here are the numbers:

Current Weight: 283 lbs
Starting Weight: 440.2 lbs
Weight Loss This Week: 2.2 lbs
Weight Loss in Year 2: 2.2 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 157.2 lbs

I'm back!  Today is my first day back on the wagon after a bit of a vacation.  I think the time away did me good, although it did set me back a bit.  To be expected.  Here are the numbers:

Current Weight: 285.2 lbs
Starting Weight: 440.2 lbs
Weight Loss This Week: -3.6 lbs
Weight Loss in Year 2: 0 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 155 lbs

It seems only fitting that my reset vacation also reset me for the year.  The ledger is even.  Let's see what kind of progress I can make.

Week 2:20

I consciously took this week off.  I wasn't planning on it until about Sunday, and I value the accountability of weekly weigh ins, but I am burned out and need a week to gather myself.  I feel I am doing this for the right reasons.  I'll be back next week.

Results were not great this week, but between illness and working through the malaise I have been in I will take anything less than skyrocketing numbers.  Thanks to those of you who posted a bit of support or encouragement and those who offered it in person.  I work very hard sometimes to solve everything myself when putting it out in the world and getting a hand makes it so much easier.  Of course, those who know me are not surprised I did something the hard way.  One variable in the equation of my "case of the twenty-somethings", as Amy aptly put it in last weeks comments, has been solved.  I booked a gig!  Even better, it is one I have been targeting for a few months.  I had wanted to move away from musicals for a bit because I have felt my acting get a bit "hammy", but a well regarded company in town, Circle Theatre, is doing Urinetown, one of my all time favorites and a show I fit into quite well.  I targeted it a few months back and got the role I was gunning for.  Rehearsals don't start for another month+, but it is nice to have a real professionally fulfilling gig to look forward to.  I am working on reorganizing my priorities and devoting my energies in a more healthy way, so I hope to have a nice bounce back in the coming weeks.  Here are the numbers for the past week:

Current Weight: 281.6 lbs
Starting Weight: 440.2 lbs
Weight Loss This Week: -.6 lbs
Weight Loss in Year 2: 3.6 lbs
Weight Loss Total: 158.6 lbs
