Can I still be a member of your club?

Hey guys,
I finally broke the 200 lb mark this morning and weigh in at 199lbs. I'm not bragging here I'm just happy I finally broke under 200 lbs. Anyway, can I still be a member of your club? Just so you know, I started at 230 lbs on January 1st.

No doughnuts for you!

Don't worry folks, I'm watching the Pens game tonight and I'm sure I'll order pizza and gain a pound or two. It just feels good to reach a goal.

Couch, congrats! Good job! I'll make you up an emeritus certificate later and get it posted.

Thanks for the compliment bud. Hope you have a good ride with Hillary. He's a ton of fun. Hill and I are supposed to go for a nice ride over the 4th of July weekend in the Cleveland area (where we both grew up). I can't wait!

Peace,

Couch

No you may not be a member anymore. However, with a screen name involving a couch I am sure that you will be back. At that point you will be a NEW member and none of the seniority you acquired will be transferrable. You will be a nOOb again.

Oh, and bragging about weight loss will NOT earn you brownie points. Brownies maybe, but no points.

Will I lose all my street cred? If I will, I'll go pound down a tub of crisco real quick.

This has more street cred. By the way, print this and hang it up.

Go Red Wings! Also on another note, CONGRATS! It is always satisfying to meet a goal. Keep up the hard work my friend and have fun! Save some of the ladies for us though!

Thanks for the kind words man. The hockey game tonight has been great so far. Chris Osgood has been amazing tonight. I swear that guy is an alien man!

Former Clydes are welcome. Hopefully you can give advice to some of us who wish to be former Clydes as well. Just don't go thinking you can wear spandex all the time now (thinking of eddie murphy from the "Nutty Professor") .

Dude, I am a Clydesdale and still wear spandex... not that I should.

And I will say this: "Spandex is a privilege, not a right!"
