I have officially entered the WLC2K11 (Weight Loss Challenge 2011), which is a gentleman's wager amongst a few of us bike riding types. The concept is simple: We all throw some cash into the pot, and the one of us with the highest percentage of starting body weight lost after a March 1, 2011 weigh-in wins the whole pot.
My goal seems modest compared to the goals being thrown around by the others, so I suspect that I am not a favorite to win the grand prize and its accompanying fame and fortune.
However, participating does improve winter motivation, especially when the weather is putrid and riding inside sounds less than appealing.
Time to scour the library website for more movies to request for these indoor sessions.
This is shaping to up to be a long winter.
