    Good news! I weighed myself this morning and Im sub 200lbs for the first time in a long time.
    I started riding in April and I was around 220lbs. This morning I was 199.
    Another 5 pounds or so and Ill be where I need to be for someone 6'2".

    Yeah, it's pretty cool and congrats - I managed to do this about a year
    ago and have stayed under 200 ever since.. Hard work but definetely
    worth it.

    Congratulations!

    Been there and know how gratifying it is to reach that milestone!

    Don't get discouraged if you get on the scale next time to find you are slightly above 200. I remember teetering at that mark for a time before finally clearing it.

    Continue doing what you've been doing and you will find yourself moving further downward and that 200 mark will be ancient history.
