    Well I am no longer a Clyde can I still hang around you guys?

    Or do I have to stick with those old folks in the 50+ forum. (I'm 61 but still a kid at heart) I'm still fat but have got down to 195. This gets me out of the "obese" category according to the bmi chart and into the really overweight class. It sure sounds better just being fat as compared to "obese"

    I'm a long ways from being successful in my opinion since I wasn't much over 200 when I started riding again and have only been at it a short 6 weeks. But I already feel better my b/p is lower and my clothes fit better so I guess it is a small success. The thing that amazes me and I hope will inspire others to try biking is how quickly I got stronger and felt better. It doesn't take long to start reaping the benefits!

    Getting healthy is a success any way you look at it.

    Congrats, finding success is great. Paying it forward the greatest.

    Congratulations!

    I passed below the line sometime in April, but no one has kicked me out so far. I won't tell if you don't!
