I just thought of a new idea. Since I participate in the forums on a regular basis now, I decided to make all my Garmin ride pages public (they were all private except for the latest one and the Donner Pass Road one from last year). I put my weight in the comment section on the page. I only remember my weight from the last three climbing rides, but from now on I'm going to put it on every ride page. Here's an example from the sufferfest video ride I posted a couple days ago:
Current weight is 162 lbs, so this weekend's climbing ride will show that unless I lose more (doubtful).
I figured it would be a good way to track improvements. What do you guys think?

It is not real obvious, or easy to find. So if you're doing it for yourself, it's perfect. If it is to provide perspective for others, you mite want to place it in a sentence, like--I weighed XX for the ride today. That would assit in provideing the context of the information, and let it pop out from the rest of the heading.
It is a nice touch, and I may start it my self. That way I can remember the pain even more. I am currently at 285, and have been here for a few weeks:( So maybe not:)

I am mainly doing it for myself, but thought I'd throw this out there so anybody else who wanted to track their progress could do so like this. I just wish I'd thought of it last July when I bought the Garmin.
