Went out for my first ride since getting my bike. A little under two miles and it completely destroyed me. I have so much more respect for the guys that have lost lots of weight doing this and the ones that are losing it still. It was a humbling experience getting out there to say the least.
I'm 6'3" and weigh in at 320lb. I'm only 22 and was told by my doctor to be at a high risk for diabetes because of my size and family history with it. He recommended cycling as a good aerobic workout that's also low impact.
I was really excited to start doing this but today just seemed to feel like a failure. Having to turn back so soon was a big hit to the morale.
