    I did It, Can I Stay a Clyde Pleaseeeee

    Today at my weekly weighin I dropped below 91KG & 200 LBs , My starting weight was 102 KG / 225 LBs & 23 weeks later I have lost 26 LBs

    I started in October when I brought my first road bike and have consistently lost a pound or two per week
    since then, My goal was always 90KG but now may have to revise that lower to what ? Not real sure

    I rode my first Metric century a few weeks ago and now want to do a imperial century sometime over the summer so that is my next goal,
    Also achieved things I thought I would never do ie learning to ride clipless
    (Yes I have fallen) & climbing hills I thought I could never climb

    Here are some pictures

    The scales, Today




    Miss 3 and I at Yosemite National Park earlier this week

    So Can I stay a Clyde member please Sir Tom:

    Awesome, congratulations. I had just about the same change as you recently and it feels great, doesn't it? I can't really tell from the picture if this applies to you but I found a "loophole" in that people over 6 feet tall are also considered Clydes. Keep up the good work!

    Cool and very well done. You're probably a lot more energetic so can take Miss 3 out some more!

    Congratulations!

    I'd say, sure, stay a clyde. The last thing we need is anyone trying to bulk up so they can be in the forum!

    Way to go!!!!! I am working on it also I started at 355 and as of this morning 205. I have not been under 200 since I was 14 or 15. (I am 48) Biking is getting alot easier also! up to a little over 100 miles a week riding 5 days or so. But I will be a Clyde till I die! Don't think I even like thin people. You know here in the US you are less likely to be killed in a volient crime if you are a Clyde....So there!!!!!!LOL

    Well done Bigtruck, tdbmd and Brandon!!!!
    I vote that you stay. You can help motivate the rest of us yet to achieve that.

    Congratulations.

    Congratulations !!!!

    And it is likely to be much better to be an Ex-Clyde than an ex-parrot ( see Monty Pythons ).
