I don't really know where i will stop. But this is the first time my BMI has been in the 'healthy' range lol. I don't think id be very healthy looking much below 190. I will probably shoot for 185 for cross season to see how it helps me racing this year, with expectations of settling just sub 200 for a maintenance weight, but only time will tell

Here is me at about 220, i can already feel the difference on some climbs... must be the new CF bike i got this year... it IS sub 20# afterall HAHA

still under the 2XX mark!!! Looking forward to the rest of the cycling season without lugging around an extra 25#. Even got my 15 mile TT down over 2 minutes (from 41xx to under 39 min at 23mph). Now to reward myself with a new bike this year... TT or CX bike??? hmmmm

My wife and I, almost 35# combined!!! (she was never an athena however)
