    On The Downhill Ride!!

    I just wanted to share with everybody that I have officially lost more weight (61.9 lbs) than I need to go to my go to my goal weight (60.3 lbs to go). Besides the fact that I am fitting into clothes that I wasn't even able to wear last winter, I seem to have more energy and a renewed desire to ride in the snow this winter. Thanks to everyone who has been so helpful in my journey and I will keep you updated on my progress to 225 lbs.

    Am I the one that was thoroughly confused with that? I kept thinking that you are saying you wanted to lose 60.3 but passed the goal and lost 61.9. Then read 225 and thought that doesn't sound right because even the tallest guys seem to have a goal of about 210.

    Now I get it, and either way, great job! I myself am just shy. Started at 247 (starting with diet, biking came about 1.5 months later) and have an overall goal of 180 (but my main goal just for now is 200 by Christmas) and I'm at 214. Lost 33 and have 34 to go for my overall goal sometime before next summer.
