Thanks from a Lurker

Hi everyone,

While I've posted here a couple of times, it's been a while since I have posted anything (I rarely seem to post on forums these days), but I do check in every day to read the posts. I've been meaning to get around to posting to say thanks to everyone here for being a part of my inspiration. Since last summer I have gone from 230lb to 186lb, by dieting (weight watcher points - no meetings - my wife used to go), and riding either my Trek Navigator, or our Schwinn 231 recumbent exercise bike. I've hit a plateau for the last month, but I'm determined to keep at it. I know, now that I've fallen below the Clyde weight it's a fine time to start posting again, but at 5'11" I still have some belly fat to lose, and once gone, I need to keep it that way (I starting gaining it 15 years ago).
So if no one objects, I'll be sticking around for a bit more, as I continue to work towards my goal. The C/A forum is definitely one of the more friendly and civilized forums on BF (I'm still two years away from the 50+ forum - another good one).
A photo of my progress so far is below.

Thanks again, Rob

Thanks for your responses (and the certificate), I'll keep working at the weight loss, and maintenance, and riding as often as weather permits around here (four days of rain coming). I'll also try to post more often.
