Hi everyone, this is my first post aside from my intro and Id just like to say Im glad to be a part of the community!
Id like to start out by saying that I am a new rider and Im here looking for advice as to how I should go about reaching some goals of mine. I am a 23 year old dude who is 5'9" and 220 lbs and Im very unhappy with my health. I drastically changed my diet about 3 months ago to healthier foods and started to walk to and from work (30 blocks each way) every day. A few weeks ago I felt that this wasn't enough to loose the kind of weight I wanted so I decided to invest in a Cannondale F7 bike and start cycling instead of walking. I have had my bike for 1 whole week now and have been peddling to work and back every day so far (5 days) and was planning to hit up the trails near my house (that go on for miles n' miles) tomorrow. I still have to stop though and ask myself if Im doing enough, is my 60 blocks a day during the week and 1 day of the weekend for and hour or two really good enough to bring me down to a good weight? Id appreciate any advice you all could give for a big guy like myself to burn off this fat and enjoy the benefits of good health. Thanks for taking the time to read this
