That image of the tread-mill is hilarious.  I think that I would be the type to have that happen to me in-front of a ton of health-club pros.
I would just get up and dust myself off and then crack up laughing at myself....and hope that someone was filming it so I could win $ 10,000
on Americas Funnies videos!

fantastic bekelmore than a stone! Wow! I think it may well take me a year to lose the same amount but seeing you is inspiration to just stick with it!

I've been interested in these recumbent bikes for a while...are they hard to ride? I never had a bicycle as a child so nowadays I just don't have the confidence or that old knowledge re balance to just start bike riding. Recumbent bikes look so cool..

It took me more than a year to lose that--May 18, 2006 to last week in July 2007. But I did it!

If it's a balance issue, you want a recumbent trike. Greenspeed, Catrike, WizWheelz (TerraTrike), WindCheetah (UK trike) are all super trikes. It's like a gokart or Big Wheel for adults! Easier than noseclipping oil ;)
Here's a (long) e-mail from the owner of Greenspeed about Bike or Trike

>BIKE or TRIKE??

One of the most interesting questions I get asked is "Should I buy a trike or a bike?"  Many people coming to recumbents from riding
upright bikes automatically think about a recumbent BIKE, and find riding a trike "strange".  I started off building short wheel base
(SWB) recumbent bikes, but was not really happy with them, as they seemed to require a little more concentration to balance than an upright, and I worried about hitting something on the road and falling off.  Then a cycle shop owner showed me a road test of a UK recumbent TRIKE in a UK magazine. This looked me like a good idea, and having built 150mph road race side-cars, I was sure I could do a bit better.

When I got my 1st trike on the road, I found it was a delight to be able to just concentrate on pedalling and not have to worry about
keeping the thing upright!  At 1st I just rode on bike paths, but eventually found them too limiting, and ventured onto the roads.
Here I found an extra bonus!  Whereas before the cars had cut me fairly close as I wobbled along on the SWB, now that I could ride as straight as an arrow, they gave me much more room!  And the big trucks were the best, always waiting for a full, clear, lane before overtaking - at last I felt safe cycling on the roads!

However as bikes seemed more popular OS than trikes, I expected to sell more bikes than trikes, when I started selling Greenspeeds in 1991.  So I offered the SWB 1st to people who visited my shop to buy a recumbent.  I found that many people were most impressed with the SWB, but usually once they got a ride on the trike, they forgot about the SWB.  Thus we have ended up building and selling about TEN TIMES as many trikes as bikes, and now people coming here are often surprised to find there are two wheeled recumbents as well as three wheeled recumbents!

So why are the trikes so popular? What advantages do they have? For me it's mainly the stability. For some it's the FUN - like riding a
GO-KART with pedals - no need to bank the machine over like a bike - -just move the handle bars and you get an instant change of
direction!  No more worries about coming down riding over a dropped water bottle, or shoulder on the road - touch one wheel
against a kerb and it rides up effortlessly.  Want to go touring? No worries - load it up and it's still quite easy to ride.  Have a balance
problem and can't ride to two wheeler? - just get on a trike and ride straight off.  And those traffic lights - no need to unclip, attempt a track stand, or find something to lean against - your are as steady as a rock, comfortable, all clipped in, and ready to GO with both feet!  And when you get to the end of your trip, or just want a rest, no need to get off the machine - you have a stable chair for a rest or meal.

Like to STOP quickly?  Well with a Greenspeed trike you get TWO front brakes, and you will find you can stop as quick as a car.  Need MORE speed?  A trike allows you to use a fairing without worrying about being blown over in a wind.

OTOH, **all things being equal**, the bike will be faster due to lower weight and less aero drag, cost less, be easier to store and transport, and for some, give that extra feeling of freedom, as it banks for one side to another. 

Some people worry that a trike is so low you will be run over by the 1st truck which comes along.  As far as I am concerned, low is safe - it means I am LESS likely to go under a truck because the lower the trike, the less likely it is to turn over and dump me on the road, where I could get run over.  I believe I am also FAR safer than on a bike, where all you need is a patch of oil or sand/gravel to bring you down and under someone's wheels.  I feel MUCH safer on my trike in peak hour traffic than I do on a bike, where IMHO the height merely gives an illusion of safety.

Some say the trikes don't win races.  At last year's national HPV Challenge in Canberra, Greenspeed trikes came 1st and 2nd overall
(GS SWB 3rd) - you can go a bit faster when you are confident of not going down :-)

The only time I ride a SWB now is for demos and road testing - we've just built a new SWB prototype with a lower seat, and are still
searching for a design that's as easy to ride as a trike - an impossible dream??? >

Nougat,

You look fantastically smaller.  It must be that you have carved off the unwanted layers and preserved muscle.
I like the look of everyone that has been losing on the oil.  They look healthy and smaller, not deflated.  I think that
is probably because it also cuts out unhealthy high carb snacking and eating. 

Congratulations,
Flabba
