    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.
    Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you're probably right

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

    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.
