The Wall

I spent a total of six years of my life in Berlin. For four of those years, the Wall was an impenetrable barrier but in 1989 I was able to ride my bicycle through a gap in the Wall. It was an unbelievable experience.

Now I'm facing another wall. I've shed a great deal of body fat, but it seems every time I get close to getting under 200 pounds, I end up moving back up the scale. It's an ice cream binge here, a little lasagna there--just enough to thwart my progress, and get me out of fat-burning mode. But I'll just keep positive, keep working, and try not to give into the carb urges. So just like I rode my Peugeot through the Berlin Wall, I will eventually bust this 200lb barrier....and then 190!
