    Biggest Loser Threads for 2014?

    Are there no biggest loser threads for 2014? Is there a reason or just no one started any? I was using during summer and got down a few pounds, but over the holidays went the wrong direction. LOL

    I'm in! Though I won't be back riding until probably at earliest late March, I just started riding for the first time on the old Walmart bike at the end of summer. I maintained fairly well through the holidays with only a 1 lb increase since Thanksgiving timeframe. I didn't hit my goal of 200 by Christmas though as I thought I'd ride up until the snow came. Work put a stop to that after Thanksgiving and haven't ridden since.

    So, I'm at 221 (220 right before Thanksgiving, think I need to change my sig since that was only a 1 time deal I saw that weight.) Dropped 30 lb. easy in the 3 months I rode starting end of summer last year, so another 30 lb. should be easy enough riding the entire spring and summer. I do have to get back away from the baking my wife started up again. So, I'll put a goal up of 190 lb. by the end of summer. I'll be real happy to be 190 lb. I don't think I've seen that since the college days 20 years ago.

    I'm doing this more about cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure anyways, the weight is just a related bonus.

    Holding off on sending my taxes because that is my new Giant Escape 1 I'm buying, and I can't go out in 2 feet of snow and test ride a bicycle before I buy it.

    My other 2014 goal is to ride my Allegheny River Trail the 34 miles Emlenton, PA to Franklin and back (68 mile total) by late summer as well as hitting some of the rails to trails around here. Hope to find a nice road route around the house as well for some summer riding. I don't ride the roads because it is nothing but up and down 6%+ grade hills with nothing flat whatsoever. That's real tough on a Walmart dual suspension mountain bike. Hopefully with the new Giant, road riding would be more enjoyable if I find a nice route with wide enough roads and not so much constant up and down with constant blind turns.
    Ride no faster than your Guardian Angel can fly!

    I've managed to maintain so far... I'm sitting about 255. With the weather he way it is, I'm really not going to be able to hit it hard and heavy until March... That being said, we're heading to the Y on Sunday after we get back from our anniversary weekend so I can start swimming in the AM before work... That triathlon is creeping closer and closer...
    Due to recurring injury, I no longer have a yearly goal. How far I go is how far I go.
    As of 8/10 - Bike: 482.9mi Walk/Run: 136.7mi Weight 253.5
