Freedom of the open road is a rewarding feeling.





I added this pic just because I liked it.

My Goals:
My goal is to reach 224 pounds by Jan.14, 2008. So far by 4/1/07 I have lost 36 pounds. ..........................................





1st Short Term Goal was to break the 300 mark and be at 299 by April 11, 2007. Did that on March 31st.
BEEN HERE AND DONE THIS!!! WOOHOO!!

::::::::::::::::::::::::::


:::::::::::::::::::::::
>NEXT SHORT TERM GOAL.
To be at 284 pounds by May 21st. That will be my 50 pound loss mark.



(I will be adding another short term goal as soon!)



Although my ultimate goal is 224, I told my wife if I decide to go on and reach 200 pounds I would reward myself with a new Harley. C'MONNNNNN WEIGHTLOSS!!!








My Program:
My weight loss so far has just consisted of being more concious of what I eat and better portion sizes. Along with that I have ben rowing and working out on my Gazelle which I enjoy. I had knee surgery twice and this has been low impact on the knees. Also part of my weight loss program is to drink AT LEAST 8 glasses of water a day and lay off the soda (plain or diet) and any alcohol except for an occassional glass of vino. Less pizza, less beer, less chocolate, and definately less "fast food". NO..... I don't want it "Supersized" I DID THAT MYSELF ALREADY. NOW I WILL "UNDO" IT!

Personal Information:
GO BUCKS!!!!!!

GO TRIBE!!!!!!!!!

GO BROWNS!!

Other Information:
Favorite Books I've read recently.
"Stop Digging Your Grave With a Knife and Fork" by Gov. Mike Huckabee of Ark.
I read this one twice and highlighted items the second time I read it. Great advice in this book.

WAY TO GO!! YOU REMIND ME OF MY BROTHER. HE RIDES A HARLEY AND HAS LOST WEIGHT THIS PAST YEAR AS WELL. HE IS TYPE TWO DIABITICS
NOT GOOD NEWS FOR THE REST OF US IN THE FAMILY BUT WE ARE BEHIND HIM A 100 PERCENT ON HIS WEIGHT LOSE GOALS AND HE HAS GOTTEN DOWN TO 201 FROM 256 SO I KNOW HE HAS REALLY WORKED HARD AS YOU HAVE THIS PAST YEAR. MY HUSBAND HAS RECENTLY BEEN DIAGONISED AS WELL SO WE ARE BOTH ON THE WEIGHT LOSE JOUIRNEY. MY HUSBAND WENT FROM 276 TO 214 AND I HAVE LOST FROM 208 TO 249 AS OF TODAY. SO HANG IN THERE AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. BE PROUD OF YOURSELF.

Wecome aboard Crete. I think the new bike motivator is excellent and I would definitly support that one!!!! You have some nice pics there. Like the bike! Does you wife ride or enjoy the scenery on the back of your wheels? I used to ride 2 up but got tired of seeing the world around the back of my husbands helmet. It's funny now if we ride 2 up he doesn't like it. I ride like a "rider" not a passenger. :) Oh well, we're both happy to be on our own rides. Enjoy this site and it looks like you're on your way to success. Keep it up and know their are fellow bikers out here rootin' for ya!
