Greetings - Update

Thanks to all that posted to my multiple topic posts about a week ago. Sorry I didn't reply but I had a bit of an illness, just finishing up some tablets tomorrow and haven't felt much like being in front of the screen. I have ridden though even though they said not to exert myself...damn flat bellied know it alls!

Anyhow, I DID order a pair of bibs from Aerotech and I DID order a Brooks B67 from Harris albeit a so called Pre-Aged one <---- Whoos! The unpadded workout shorts I got from Aerotech are just so darn comfortable I can't imagine the bibs in the saddle, it's difficult to get out of these except to change and wash them. There's only so much mad money around right now so I'll have to hold off on lights and night riding for awhile although before dusk with plenty of light is a lot more pleasant than daytime. Weight loss is at a null. Don't know why but I'm not going to concern myself with it. I'm doing what I'm supposed to do and changes will come. I AM enjoying riding my bike more, whether it's just required muscles building and making it....easier....or not, it's just more enjoyable.

Hope everyone had a pleasant Memorial Day and appreciated it not only for the good times but to remember.

That's All Folks!

Thanks Neil! Most of us 'Clydes' have struggled with weight loss. Myself, I'm the fattest I've ever been, now 230 @ 69". A mere flyspeck to some but to me, intolerable anymore. Not the fattest, I have lost 20. So I know the cycle so to speak, it goes up, it goes down. Don't fret about it.

BTW, read your blog, not religiously but do check in from time to time. Sometimes it's difficult to see progress yourself but believe me, others look at it and say: WOW, I wish I could do that! I hope to be as succesfull as you have been.

Keep it up brother!
