    Great story and picture. I liked the jersey as well, but is that a Notre Dame Leprechaun? That would spoil it for me.

    I've been hanging onto 15 pounds that I need to loose. You and Sayre have shown me that there is a better way, Hope to be 210 by December 1.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    hmmm, I will have to see if it is the Notre Dame dude lol... Good luck on your last 15lbs, hang in there and you'll reach your goal. I had initially wanted to just reach 230, then as that approached I set for 220, now I am looking at 199 by race season next year... I just use the weight as a tangible goal, the real benefit for me has been feeling so much better in all aspects of my life. And it is very rewarding to me that I do not worry about what hills we will encounter in our riding, as well as hanging with some of the 160lb guys on the group climbs...

    I really did it just by eating better/right and lots of riding/training. Why? I guess it is two fold as to why. I was just tired of the way I looked and felt all of the time, and I decided to finally do something about it and get serious about riding again. So as I approach the 7,000 mile mark for the year, I feel great and have a great sense of accomplishment with both the health issue and riding. I also discovered the therapeutic value for me which riding brings. I was involved in a bad motorcycle crash a few years ago, resulting in a couple of brain operations and acquired T.B.I. Riding has proven to be a great relief for my bad days when my head hurts a bunch. I think it is the endorphins or something. Whatever it is I feel a great release when I head out hurting and 3 hours later I return feeling great...

    Thanks fixedgearinker. I am always interested in hearing other peoples stories. It serves as motivation for me and probably others as well. The great part about the Clyde forum is that everyone is supportive in their own way.
