Losing a Clyde....

No, I've not dropped below 200 lbs, I wish but not yet.

Instead I post this today to state that I have officially lost over 200 lbs, one entire Clyde.

Anyway, enough bragging, you folks have a great day and a wonderful weekend, get out there and ride.

Alright!


There's something really cool when people ask you how much weight you've lost and you say over 200 lbs. My next step will be to say "I'm half the man I used to be."
