Ken didn't weigh in on Thursday.

I think so, too.

I have made progress. The other day, I pulled all my jackets and coats out of the closet and tried them on. The heavy winter coat I'd purchased last year is now ridiculously huge on me. No way I can wear it.

A tweed blazer that had grown difficult to button is roomy now; my wife thinks it looks too big, but that's how I like it. An old leather jacket I'd outgrown is baggy again.

I have tangible evidence that I've lost weight.

What I don't have proof of is that I can continue to lose weight. Or that I can keep it off. Those are the two things that are haunting me.

I had a bad week. Truth to tell, I've had a bad two months.

As my commenter said, I've hit the wall.

Now I need to find the strength to climb over that wall.

Weighing in on Thursday, when I was already feeling weak, would've stopped me in my tracks.
