I finally made it, well actually rather quickly I think. At my moms funeral I weighed 221, her funeral was April 11th, 2008. Today I weigh 198 lbs.
Thanks to my new Trek Pilot 5.0 which I absolutely love riding compared to my other roadbike which just isn't fitted well. Also a whole new eating plan has done wonders for me.
Now my next goal is to hit 185 lbs, can't wait to get under 190.
