    Hello Shannon, good job on the weight loss and the determination to keep making it happen on a bike! Stop by the Clydesdales forum (some very helpful and friendly folks over there who know what it's like), and also check out the Southeast regional forum to see who else is in Alabama.

    Welcome to BF!

    As a Clyde, let me extend you an invite to visit us over in Clydesdales! I think you'll like it!

    Great job on the weight loss, by the way!
