    Goal reached!!!

    Even 2 weeks after my heart attack, still hitting the gym (albeit on a very reduced exercise routine), restricted to riding inside on the trainer (also very reduced), sticking to my dietitian's advice, our scale said 200 pounds this morning. That was my weight loss goal. That said, I am going to continue doing what I have been doing, maybe get to 190 before going on the maintenance part.

    So, I guess in the next few days I will "no longer be a Clyde". That said, I hope no one minds if I stick around, as this is one of the 2 best sections on this forum (50+ is the other IMHO).

    Congrats on hitting your goal (and living after a heart-attack!!!!)
    I'm planning on de-branding my 23" Schwinn High Plains updating components and powder-coating the frame - metamorphosizing it into the ULTIMATE TOURING MACHINE!!!

    Congratulations, avmech. The weight loss and healthy diet/exercise will go a long way toward keeping your heart in good shape. May I ask how tall you are?

    Yes, this sub-forum and the 50+ are the two most helpful, supportive, and accepting of each other on this site.

    Glad you survived to share your accomplishment with us. Go easy and ride safe.

    Congrats on both surviving the heart attack and the weight loss.
    As for kicking you out - Nobody has kicked me out yet despite being an emeritus clyde.
    Stick around, there are plenty of inspirational stories to keep us all on the right path.

    Congrats and do stick around. I at least like to see that there are those that have worked their way to formerly Clyde status.

    5 foot 9 inches, with a large frame (bone structure). Dietitian is of the opinion that 200 is my ideal weight, but I will shoot a little lower, just cause I can!!!

    As far as this group is concerned, I am not going anywhere, you are stuck with me!!!!!
