I just hit the scales at less than 300 pounds for the first time in ten years. I am riding an average six miles per day (yeah, I know it doesn't compare to century rides, but I only started a couple of months ago), I can walk up stairs without breathing heavy, and I am looking at new clothes. I plan to break the 100 pound loss barrier in the next year, and maybe I will ride in one of the longer rides next summer or fall.
The last time I weighed less than 240, Lyndon Johnson was in the White House and gas was 25 cents per gallon.
I know that 37 pounds may not seem like a lot to some, but I am really happy about it.
I have this forum to thank for so much of my progress because of all the support and inspiration.
So--thanks to all of you--this is really getting to be fun.
