Great List!

I’m sure no. 31 will be really motivating. 🙂

Some of these are pretty tough targets!

Numbers 13, 14 and 25 sound great. Please be careful if you go for number 28!

And how about this one –

34. Go metric!

(Just a suggestion).

Thanks Dude

31 is the BIGGIE, the Jersey is also huge on me now, so a double whammy 😀

Not much I can do about 28 TBH, The risk is outta my hands

Im sure I can add a couple more TBH, tho im not sure about 34. 🙂

I’m not sure you’ve got 40lb to lose. Being too thin for your frame can be as bad as being too big. Amazing journey you’ve been on though!

I sure do have another 40lbs, I wanna Climb like Lance/ Alberto etc 🙂
