Check out Erich's new sled. It is fairly wild looking. That seat post is plenty long. The bike was a great deal. I picked it up at the end of last year when Cannondale was blowing them out. I knew he would need a new bike and they were shaving 35% off the price. I had to pick it up. Now that it has been set up for him we will start riding on the weekends. Boo will have lacrosse for about another month so he will be a bit out of race shape but should be able to ride back into an acceptable level of fitness. Plus the lacrosse should be good cross training.
My weight loss is slowing. I have been a bit disappointed with the scale lately. I had been losing about a pound a day and now it is down to half a pound. Today I actually gained a pound. I have been very good about the prescribed diet. I have not cheated at all so I am not sure why things have slowed down. 5 lbs in a week is not bad I just had been expecting more. Today, for example, I have had 8 oz of chicken a cup of grilled onions and 2 oranges. This is just not much food and I would think more weight would have come off. I have not been riding as much as I should. Maybe I will do 30 min per day on the trainer on days where I cannot get outside. If something does not change I will not make my goal of 245 by the end of this 40 day period.
