I lost a bicycle!

17lbs. Since January 11th. Excercise and eating better, also almost no alcohol. Cosidering my Roubaix weighs in at 16.5lbs, it is the cheapest way I've found to lighten the load.

230 - 213 * Working on my certificate.

Good job! Assign a dollar value per pound lost and reward yourself with more cycle gear.

You got me on that one. I was expecting to hear a sad story. I'm glad you have had success.

Doh, that would mean I need to loose close to ($)1000 lbs using that process in reverse.

dallen - nice job, keep up the great work and you will meet your goals.

Kool then I'll go with a $25 to 1 Lbs lost ratio.

25 x 50 = $1250 Perfect, now I can justify the new bike!!!

WooHooo! Thanks for enabling me guys.

When I was younger my dad said he'd give me $100 for every 25 pounds I lost.


I should have taken him up on it lol.
