A Bad News Good News report

Bad News: I am out of holes on my belt, I can't tighten it any further.

Good news: I am out of holes on my belt, I can't tighten it any further!

Bad News: I'm stuck between 212-215. I wanted to be south of 210 for the Thanksgiving trip to Phoenix.

Good News: All my current clothes at baggy and make me look even more "Svelt."

Bad News: All this riding made my hamstring complain.

Good News: When I grabbed the back of my leg, I thought I was grabbing someone else's leg.

Bad News: I'm still a Clyde's!

Good News: I'm still a Clyde's. It is a great encouraging crowd of wheel spinners. Happy Thanksgiving!

Not quite yet, but is better than being 245. The highlight of the year is when a neighborhood teenager blurted out, hey Mr. Yo***, your not so fat anymore. I hadn't exercised in 8 months. I was 99% flab. From following your threads I know you carry some pounds, but no flab on you or Mrs. B.
