Just noticed...I'm at my goal weight
Tuesday, January 31, 2012
Even though I haven't been posting much here, I haven't forgotten about the whole sparkie thing.
Over the last few months I've gotten re-committed to riding my bike. We had such a great time hosting the Pro Cycling Challenge when it went by our house, it motivated me to get my bikes tuned up and I started riding again. Then I committed to commuting and entered a commuting challenge. To seal the commitment, I gave my car away, which pretty much forces me to get on the bike and ride. Then the car came back, so I gave it away again, and now there is another car in the driveway, but it doesn't run, so it doesn't tempt me too much.
Anyway, I had picked 170lbs as a first goal, and now that I'm there I feel pretty good about it, I don't think I need another weight goal, for some sports 170 is skinny, for others it is fat.
Dropping 10 lbs was hard enough, but once I started riding my bike on some long rides with consistency, the pounds kind of took care of themselves.
It was just by coincidence that I hit my goal just about one year after joining here.
Off to my commute!
