Oficially below 200lbs

For a couple of weeks Ive been roaming around 199, all this week I've been below 195 (192 today), so I can oficially celebrate.

I want to thank you all for the great inspiration and motivation I get from this forums. Although I don't actively post, I do read the forum everyday. 6 months ago this forum was part of the reason I started saving $ to buy a bike, and I'm glad I did. It has been a complete life changing experience, a totally new lifestyle I love.

Progress pics (shirtless, click at your own risk) I'll be posting recent ones soon.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Under 200

Cudos!!
(I was 'that close')
I've arrived at 205 (which is the lowest I've been sence 1995. the highest was 267)
I can't use todays weight because the results were achieved thur many hours of montezumas revenge.
