New Bke

I've been a member for several years and have had ups and downs weight wise. I decided instead of rewarding myself with a new bike after I achieve my goal why not start now? I just purchased a 2012 Specialized Sirrus Elite. I'll update the post with a photo as soon as I figure out how. I just had to brag!

I've done that with shoes and it does help. Now reward yourself with new wheels and or a seat when you hit 1000 miles, unless your ass hurts first!
