Welp~! Its that joyous time to put up or shut up! remember, if you say it outloud, its a commitment. In February of 2006, I found a thread created by user: SandySwimmer. It was call 20-30 pounds, Riding lighter by June. I took to that thread like a fish to water. It had 8300 hits and tons of replys. When I started it, I weighed 210 pounds and was in the clydesdale class. Every post I read made me more hungry to do what I wanted to do.I made a resolution that by June 15th of 06, the morning I left for my summer beach vacation, that I would weigh in at 175 pounds. Riding everyday and eating right.
With the help and encouragement from some of the great people here like Lowcel, Edzo, DannoXYZ, GuitarWizard,Milani,SandySwimmer and others, the morning I left for the beach, I woke up and stepped on the scales and they read 174.2 pounds. It was the first time in my life that I had reached a goal of that proportion.
I had tons of PM's asking what I did and how I did it. Im not the first nor the last to reach a goal like that but it was certainly one of the most memorable and it could not have been done without the support of these great folks of the bike forums.
As for an update. I currently weigh 182.2 pounds and I absolutely killed everything in site during the Christmas holidays. Thats to be expected. Who knows, maybe this thread will take off like SandySwimmers thread did, maybe it wont but let me be the first to step up to the Mic and say......
Im heading to the beach again this year, same beach same time. One day later this year. So with that, Here it is.... June 16th, 2007 I will weigh 165 pounds or less the morning I leave. There it is, I said it so I HAVE to do it.
