    I put on a few pounds, (OK more like 15) actually hit Clydesdale weight for a day or two, but still riding never the less. Good to see you back at it too!

  15. Three years of being a non-Clyde, time to go to the dark side.

    Today is the official day that I use as my anniversary of going under 200 pounds. I have now managed to stay under the Clyde weight for three years. I guess it is time except that I am skinny. In my...

    I wish I had known how much I was going to love doing this. I would have invested in better gear (clothing, bikes, and so forth) in the first place. That said, I at least bought good mid-range gear...

    I talked to Mrs. Pumper a little more this morning. Her reasoning for the Food Sober has more to thinking of it as an addiction. It makes sense to me in a way. The most important thing is, it makes...
