    Successes / struggles this week: I had gotten a good head start on my monthly goal, but too much celebration on the 2nd erased most of that. Still, at least I managed to not post a gain.

    Realizing I am the heaviest I have ever been is crushing but I KNOW I can do it this time. I can't go back, I can't keep getting bigger. This is no longer a choice, it is a necessity.
    That is exactly the kind of wake-up call I had. Unfortunately, I needed it twice. The first time I broke 300 I got serious for a bit and dropped weight back down to my "normal" 270-275 range and swore "never again". Then in February of this year, I got above 290 again, and I thought about that promise I made to myself. Now I'm at 240 and thinking my goal of 225 needs to be moved lower. We can do this!
