Countdown to 100 update

Getting oh so close to 100 lbs weight loss! As of this morning I've lost 98 lbs...302 now! I'm really excited but wonder if I have enough energy and will power to lose another 100! Realistically losing 50 to 65 lbs will probably be it given my body structure and age. I'm sure I will have to do A LOT more riding and different exercises to get there, but we'll see

Awesome job on the weight loss and I'm guessing your new lifestyle will lend you to losing many more.

When you register for a Tour de Cure ride you can generate a link and copy the badge from their fundrraising tour page. That reminds me I really should check that mine goes to my current effort. I have already signed up for next year. Over half way to my fundraising jersey already.
