    My official announcement (for motivation)

    I'm putting this here and on my Facebook so others know about it and can help motivate me to keep going. My motivation to ride as been seriously lacking, so I signed up and am starting a county sponsored ride tomorrow. The program is to ride to every police substation in the county (Tainan County, Taiwan), all 115 of them. A friend of mine started a week ago and already has hit about 26 stations with a mileage of about 150 Km. I'm planning on trying to hit 7 stations tomorrow.
    Part of my plan is also to give up sodas cold turkey. No point in riding while adding the extra sugar and calories every day.
    I'll try to post some pics and updates regularly. Wish me luck.
    BTW, I'm 5'9 and currently 97 Kg.
    "Pain is weakness leaving the body"......yea, right!

    You can do it!!! Seriously though, you have a very achievable goal on that weight loss ticker, and you're well on the way towards it. I have read over, and over again that the worst calories one can add to the diet are the ones you drink. So yes indeed, you should give up the soda. I still eat decent meals of just about everything, and have lost weight. Down 39 lbs from 204 to 165 (5' 7" tall btw), and I attribute that to not drinking wasted calories.

    Good luck, and you really can do it,

    Yikes! Seeing that guy would make me move quicker.

    (anything that could attack me as motivation reminds me of the sprint training scene from American Flyers)

    I hear the riding in Taiwan is fabulous - lots of variety in the countryside. And, they make the best bikes.

    I pulled my lazy butt out of bed this morning and hit 7 police stations with a total of about 25 km. I don't know exactly because my computer battery was dead this morning. Added an extra km or so because I couldn't find a couple of them right off. Now to map out my next route! I'm excited!
