My Clydesdale alert went off!

At 222 in 2004, I logged in here with a purpose. Loose weight! Well, I did, I lost down to 172 by riding and eating correct. Well, I held it pretty well until late 2006 and then a new "office" job kept me off the bike. I didnt feel like riding when I got home because I was zonked.

My clydesdale alert started beeping when I hit 199 one day last month. I said good god, youve gained it all back. The mirror showed as well as me rolling out the 36 waists again. Bye Bye 33's.

Im back on track, 195 and loosing but I did something I swore I wouldnt do and that was gain it back. I feel I know what it takes to get it off and I think I can do it in 2 months.

So dont do like I did, dont loose hope and ride, ride, ride.

You can do it buddy. I just lost 25lbs in just under 3 weeks in a low carb plan. And I get my new bike next week so I can start to ride again...

I get up at 4:45 am do a light work out, then on the bike by around 5:15 for a forty-five minute "Dawn Patrol" ride...works OK so far this spring...we'll see what happens in the fall when it's still dark that early...
