Goal met on New Years Eve!

Now what do I do? There are 2 terrible times in a mans life, one when he fails at a goal, and one when he succeeds. I succeeded at one, a huge one! As you know, I started this crazy journey at 581 pounds. I weighed in today (I haven't been to bed yet). The scale read 199 pounds! I have gone from wearing 8X T shirts to a size Large shirt.


Now, all I have to do is figure out where to go from here. I'm working on a degree in Psychology, that's a major goal. I haven't done a couple of goals yet, though. I haven't done the Triple Century ride yet. That was taken out of the picture last summer when I crashed in may and screwed up my training. I guess that's as good a goal as any.

June 21, 2009, I am going to attempt to ride from lake Michigan to the Ohio River in a day. Big goals give a person the drive to succeed, and that's a pretty ambitious goal. Other than that, I'm going to keep riding my bike and working toward my degree.

Meantime, Happy New Year for 2009!

Happy New Year, Tom! And I think you should be darn proud over what you've achieved so far...it's more than most people could or would, ya know :)

The rest will come :)

Tom, Congratuations! You now weigh less than I do! I'm in nowhere the shape I was when I did RAAM but hopefully that'll change in 2009.

It's been a long while since I've been here. Amazing achievement! Tip of the hat to you, sir. Good luck on your Ohio River quest. I'll try to muster some magic and good weather, as 6/21 is my birthday. If you do it, I'll consider it a great present.

Amazing! Way to go! You've proven to yourself (and those around you) that you can achieve whatever goal you set your mind to --- truly inspiring.

Congratulations Tom! I just found your blog today. Your journey is inspirational.

If you ride through Ann Arbor in June, it would be our pleasure to provide some refreshing treats that'll keep you energized. Maybe even join you for a few miles if you'd like some company.

Well, pleased to meet you, Lady Jane. :D

We're tentatively planing a ride up Michigan way in July, while I'm on Summer break.
