    No, but I took the highest of three readings. :-)

    Congratulations. However, your height makes you a Clyde too.

    You need to have a large piece or two of pie to celebrate that achievement.

    I have this fear that I will get below 200 lbs, but then when I grab the camera, it'll push it back over. That and getting embarrassing reflections off that scale.

    Congrats AzTallRider!

    That looks like my scale (but I am quite a bit shorter than you!)

    Great riding with you on Saturday!

    In that case put some shorts on before you take the picture.

    I think I'm there. I wanted to see that 1 as the first number as a matter of principle, having been hovering just above it for awhile. AT 6'6" (and a thin build), I think 200 is about right for me.

    Congrats, ATR. A coworker of mine said I should have taken a pic of my scale a week ago when it read 199. It never even occurred to me. Besides, I knew my venture outside the realm of Clydehood was a fleeting, temporary thing, at least for now.

    I'm thinking of getting 199 lbs in weights and taking a photo of the scale.

    Or I can get about 60 pounds in weights and have my wife stand on the scale with the weights. She's got cuter feet than I do.

    Congrats, I guess. Its always good hearing what you have to post. Stick around with the old and heavy crowd. We are the fun bunch.

    Congratulations!!

    Having made the trip from 5' 10" and 218 down to 175 between June 2010 and January 2011, I know what an arduous trek it can be. If you're anything like me, I'll bet you'll continue to slowly slide lower. I'm not really "trying" these days. Just riding more because I enjoy it more and the improving weather allows it, and I've dropped another 7# in the past 2 months.

    Again, good job!!

    Thanks, and like you, I'm not trying to lose anymore - just riding and eating well.
