    Progress!

    Yesterday, I jogged 2 miles nonstop. And I felt good when I was done - I probably could have done 1-2 more. That's a pretty big deal for me, since I've never been a particularly strong runner.

    This morning, my bathroom scale clocked me at 207 lbs. That's less than I've weighed in over 3 years, and down from a high of almost 240 last fall. 185 is actually starting to sound like a realistic goal.

    This evening, I set a new personal best on my bike: 56.96 miles @ 15.7 MPH, in 3 hours 37 minutes. That's 10-15 miles further than my previous best, and about 2 hours faster. Wow.


    Thank you all for your support and encouragement. I'm not sure I'd have found the motivation to do this without this forum.

    Outstanding and welcome to your new perception of your abilities!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Only if he wants to. Clyde is a state of mind, not a weight.

    Great job. Now can you help get rid of some of my weight for me?
