199 Pounds!!!!

I just weighed myself after a ride, I dropped to 199 pounds! First time in a long time breaking the 200 barrier. I just ate, so I'm sure I'll be back over 200, but it's a nice feeling!

Edit: After eating, I'm up to 202. It was fun while it lasted! Hope to see you again 199!

I broe the 230lb barrier, then got stuck on 225. Broke that, and now I am stuck at 215lb barrier. With my new job I and good eating habits I'm sure I'll lose more weight than ever. (optimistic)

I hope I can make this post in the sometime in the future. But, I have 67 lbs to go. But, I'm 266 down from 327 so I'm happy about that!

Ride safe,
Brian
