I just weighed in this morning and my "companion" is minus 2 lbs. I am beginning to think it just might disappear someday!

Exactly! I figure I've got a whole extra person I'm toting around here, she may as well make herself useful. Sadly my gut doesn't see it that way. Freeloader!

Ha! Congrats and thanks for such a fun, humorous requiem for your "companion". I keep trying to talk mine into getting it's own bike - then we could race! ;)

Congrats to all of you. I can't say that I have had that kind of friend around. My friend is momentum or lack there of. For some reason I have talked myself into not being able to ride without someone. I always like to have someone with me to enjoy the ride. I am getting better about just going for it and once I am on the bike I am fine. I am a social creature by habit and doing things alone is difficult. But, on my alone rides I have found such peace and beauty.

My companion is a lot more stubborn, but slowly disappearing also!

I'm losing one of my most faithful and constant biking companions. And I'm not going to miss this so-called friend, either.

This companion has been w/me every turn of the cranks since I started cycling. Slowing me down. Taunting me. Reminding me I'm slower than I need to be, that I need to lose weight to be a better cyclist. This riding companion has been making me feel inferior and not as good as others. Why would anyone have a cycling companion like this?

This companion that I'm losing has been a tenacious, and doesn't want to leave me alone, no matter how many times I've tried to drop him. He's been there, hanging on, humiliating me.

This companion is my gut.

And in Jan, I lost 9 pounds of him and I hope to be seeing even less of him in another month.

Colleen
