    Not trying to win, just trying to get some people to post their success stories as well! I don't care if you've lost the kind of weight I have or 30 or 50 pounds, it's still tough to do!

    You can click on the traineo link in my sig to get the before picture. There is no after picture yet.

    Seriously though, I started around ~290. I started traineo about a week ago, so it doesn't count the ~21 pounds I lost in the last three months before starting traineo. I should get a new picture soon.

    Well, keep at it and you'll get there! Make sure you keep a series of photos instead of waiting til you hit your goal.I wish I had thought of this, but if you use the same shirt and set a footpoint and specific focal fiels, you could do a yearlong timelapse to show yourself shrinking by stacking stills with Windows moviemaker at a frame rate of 40 fps! (0.025 sec duration on the frame rollover) You are early enough in your progress to think about this!

    Both of you did a great job!

    How much riding did it take for both of you?

    When I moved to Cali last year I gained all the weight back that I lost, so being back home I am working at losing it again. When I left my lean mass was 172 and I'm down to about 165 now, so I doubt I will ever get to 172 total weight, but I would be happy with a 175 lean and 200 total body putting me at 12.5% body fat.

    I never heard of the term "Clydesdale" for a large sized biker before, it evokes images of power and grace. The image didn't fit me when I was well over 200 lbs. Now I'm around 180. When I was over 200lbs I tried dieting and regular long distance biking and all weather commuting. I even had this nice carbon fiber bike. The flab kept increasing with age. I dumped the car. I dumped the 21lb carbon bike for a 35lb utility bike. The flab melted away. Maybe a coincidence but I think not. Something about being car free seemed to bump up my metabolism. I think other people over on the Living Car Free sub forum have similar stories.

    I had bariatric surgery in March, 2005. I was in a position where I had to get the surgery due to the fact that my weight was literally killing me. I didn't overeat, I have a metabolic disease involving my pituitary called Empty Sella Syndrome as well as diabetes. I am now off insulin and maintaining normal blood sugars, off all my heart meds and Oxygen supplementation and this summer, I put 3747 miles on the bike.

    Every time I look in the mirror I get this huge feeling of accomplishment. Before the weight loss I was a bit shy and was always very self conscious. I would always pull at my shirt because I thought it made my man boobs look smaller. I never took my shirt off at the beach or pool because I was so embarrassed. I love knowing that while I won't ever be a model, I have done the most with what I have.

    My long term survival. I was on Oxygen, as well as many meds, just to stay alive. The biggest accomplishment to me was going from a wheelchair in March 2005 to riding a 167 mile 1 day ride this year. My long term goals include Lotoja..
