    How many Clydes/non-Clydes post here?

    We had so many people post in the "how old are you" thread, I was wondering if we were all Clydes, or if some non-Clydes just liked the company here? Or maybe there's some not-quite-Clydes...

    Oh, and the "official" designation for Clyde is 200+ for men and/or over 6 feet tall, right? Women are over 150 with no height? Is that right? Let me know and I'll change this first post if I'm wrong.

    The definition is goofy, though, since 150 is not that heavy for a muscled female, especially since we're getting so tall nowadays. Plus a 5'5, 190 lb male is probably a Clyde, too.

    I think it boils down to, "You know if you're a Clyde.."

    Yep. Working on not being a Clyde, but it's a ways. ~260 now. Was 327, so I'm gettin' there!

    Edit: I don't think I'd leave after getting under 200, though! This forum rocks!

    I was still 310 this morning so I won't be going anywhere for a while. Realistically I won't ever be under 200 so you're all stuck with me for good.

    I'm a for-real Clyde. One day I hopefully won't be, but I'll still stick around.

    Yep, same here. Every bodyfat test I've taken since I was a junior in high school put my lean mass at basically 200#. Unless I lose a limb somewhere. . .

    Not an Athena, although I've been there due to fun with medications.

    This is a friendly, warm group of people. You're here to get motivated, and to keep others motivated as well. I like that.

    I was 205 now I'm 185, I don't post a whole lot here but I do lurk a bit.
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    5'10" 249 pounds this morning... weighed 265 this winter... doubt I'll ever see under 200... more of a John Deere body type than a Ferrari.

    Ditto, I will be here forever. I quite like it here, so that works out well.

    If I put on about 45 pounds I'd be a Clyde. I post all over the place...

    Hey, Tom, can you change "an Clyde to a Clyde" in the above poll? I was, as usual, thinking differently than I was typing. You can delete this post then, too, or I can.

    I am an ex-UberClyde. I think to some degree once you have been an UberClyde that is always in the back of your mind somewhere. As the weight and weight maintenance really can shape our lives.

    Super-Athena now, and when I finally get to my goal weight will STILL be Athena. Just a fit, slim, strong one!

    I just did. I must say that I am very impressed by your weight loss. I can't wait for the day that I can show similar pictures.

    I'm a perma-Clyde. Even at 0% bodyfat, I'd still weigh 215 or so.

    I don't post here too often but do like reading the group. Ten years ago I would have fit the description for Athena but lost the weight and have maintained it for several years.

    I know the Historian from another group and have always admired his accomplishments in weight loss and learning to ride a bike

    Me too. At 6'6"/250lb, I am a bit heavy, but I haven't seen <200lb since I was in college, and I'd be pretty darn thin at 220lb.

    I don't think I'll see the underside of 2 bills again. I'll be happy when I cut it back to 210-220. @ 6'4"

    At 6'1" and 250 I am official. 230 is honest to gosh fighting weight for me. They used to call me Rick the Thick and it is not a reference to my head either.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    I'm an ex-UberClyde too, Mike. I'm still pretty close to Clyde-size, in the 190 lbs range, and still think of myself as a Clyde. Probably will think that way forever. Especially on this forum, where the road racers tend to be pretty fast and under 170 lbs.

    Have fun out there!
