At work we are having a biggest loser contest and final weigh in is in July. I figure this is as good a time as any to get started being healthy again. I weighed 190 lbs when I got married. I now weigh 259! I have two kids 5 and 10 and they are old enough now that they like to ride also. I ride with them on my mountain bike. I just bought the road bike to get in shape. I had a Cannondale about 12 years ago and was doing about 20 miles every other day, but then we had kids and things really slowed down.
The bike is a Scattante R560 from Performance Bike. On my scale it weighs around 19 lbs with pedals. I will let you know how it holds up. I have lots of hills in this area so hopefully I will get in shape quickly.
