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!

    Congrats on getting to your goal weight! And good luck with that no-car thing. I think I would die...

    My wife still has a car, so we really just went from a 2 car family to a 1 car, but I promised her this wouldn't ruin her life, carting me around or me stealing the car and leaving her stranded. emoticon

    The first time I gave the car to the 18 yr. old who lived about 5 mi away...and the deal was he had to fetch the old man when needed. It took a good 2 months to get solid enough on the bike to not feel really tired after chasing around town, but now a jaunt from the westside to pete field is just a warmup.

    Wow, that's fantastic in so many ways! I'd love to give up driving but my almost 13 year-old would kill me if I could not drive her every place she wants to go and getting groceries would be pretty tough. emoticon
