Hurricane Irene decimated my bicycle last year. The replacement parts have been on back order since then, so my husband took me to Tarjay yesterday and let me pick out a new bicycle! It is a Schwinn with ample seating and handle bars which can be adjusted upright. Pearl came with a matching helmet and was reasonably priced. With my mountain bike, I had the problem of my hands falling asleep because of all the weight I rested on them on the flat handlebars. Not so with Pearl. I sit upright and ride. I have already taken her out twice. Once downtown with my husband and two of the five boys (I know, 5 BOYS), and once to my therapist's office and back. She was pleased to meet Pearl.
After my husband gets home from work, we are going on another family bike ride. Maybe Pearl has been the missing link. I am going to try to ride her at least once every day, track my food daily, and hope for the best!!!
