Question for JHAACK39 - you mentioned that you changed your user name...how do you do that and does it delete all of your history?

Yes you can!

I found it. I knew I had changed my username at one point, but I found that the "search message board posts" links/boxes are not all created the same. You have to drill a little deaper to get a more comprehensive search.

This is the most interesting part:

"Unfortunately, riding the bike is really the only thing I can tolerate doing as a form of excercise. Walking is OK, but I find it hard to walk fast enough to make a difference. I'm a cheapo and don't "do" gyms. I hit the bike hard when I do it. It's not a leisurely. I like the bike because I can fool myself into the idea that I'm doing something I generally like to do (riding a real bike). I'd ride a real bike too, but I fear I wouldn't do it hard enough either."

I now belong to a gym. I hardly ever ride the bike (except the real one for leisure rides and 'bonus' fitness that I don't track). I do the arc trainer, elliptical, and a cross training strength/cardio circuit they have at my gym. I've even "gone running" on a few occasions when I didn't have access to a gym.

I don't quite read the 'fear' that I had going into it, about having to change my life. But I know it was there. And I probably didn't post until a few weeks into it and saw that it was at least managable in the short term.

I think they do archive posts on the message boards. I looked at the 'introduce yourself' board, but I couldn't find your original post. Is it possible that you might have replied to another users introduction or maybe you have posted it on another team's message board. I hope you will be able to find your original post and be able to save it on the computer- another good way to save your accomplishments and struggles is to blog about them.

If they archive message board posts? In particular in the "introduce yourself" board.
I'd kinda like to find my original post. I know I entered the journey with a little trepidation and fear. I'd like to see what a letter from my "old self" looks like.

Maybe others in our "class" would want to share theirs too.
