I normally weigh myself every Sunday to check for my progress in my quest to get down to 170-180lb where I used to be before I moved to the USA in 1998.
5 weeks ago I threw myself on the scale and it clocked in at 211lb *ouch* and I said to myself, enough is enough and from that day I picked up bicycling again and started with 10 miles/day for the first week. Picked up the distance the 2nd week and increased to 15-20 miles/day. I tried to ride my trusty old Columbus framed road bike every day as much as I could (sometimes that wasn't possible with 2 youngins and a dog in the house).
So the week after I consistently rode 20 miles/day and while I worked out and cycled my butt off I also took control over my sweet tooth habits like ice cream scoop control (I used to fill a bowl with ice cream to the rim and have fun with it) and completely cut out pop or any other sugar water and replaced it with nothing but water.
So, yesterday the scale showed 198.8lb. Yeah baby... I'm on the road to a healthier weight!
It feels good to fit in to the pants from 2 years ago again.
