So this year I've been working out, first at home, then a local gym. Riding when the weather allows, but it's been kind of ugly for a while, and I had an issue with my saddle too. There's this stitching that goes down the sides, which, if you're heavy, ain't a good thing. Anyways, got pneumonia mid-march, lungs are just about clean, took a few weeks off from the gym but got going again. Ordered a Brooks B-17, and today, the saddle came, and the scale in the bedroom dropped below 270 for the first time in a long while. I had plateaued for the longest time, partly because of being sick, and I knew it, but still, it's nice to see the weight moving down again. Weather should be getting good soon, and tomorrow I'll try out the saddle. Nice day for a change.

Once you get that brooks adjusted in right, you will likely love it. :D

The stars must be aligned:D
For second day in a row my scale reported decrease as well, firmly below 280 mark. ( I'm 6'4").
And, a Brooks saddle was delivered as well a B17 Imperial, order a couple weeks ago. Already applied the cream, allowed to dry, polished and then install to my hybrid. Took for adjustment ride, about 5 miles this afternoon instead of lunch break, then ate at my desk reviewing email. Planning a long trek this evening with Mrs.
Good Luck and hang in there, the sun comes up every day, somewheres;)
