I've been lurking here for awhile and I wanted to introduce myself. At the beginning of June I weighed 220 lbs. I started eating better and paying more attention to portion size. On the 14 of July I started commuting to work which is 11.5 miles away. I've been doing this for 3 days each week. I weighed myself on 21 July and weighed 214 lbs.
I weighed myself today, the 8th of August and am now 210 lbs. In addition to commuting I run on Saturday night doing hill repeats. I've also been to a spinning class and will probably go to a class each week. I rode my bike to work 4 days this week and will probably stick with 4 day instead of three.
My commute is mostly uphill. When I started it took 1:02 minutes to get to work and :45 minutes to get back home. My time to work is now :49 minutes.
I've been thrilled with my progress on the bike so far. My clothes are starting to fit looser, so I'm noticing a difference there.
I'm riding a Kona Jake Cyclocross bike, When I get to 190lbs. I'm going to reward myself with a road bike, so I'm spending time here reading about bikes.
The Clydesdale section has been very motivational to me, so I wanted to introduce myself and say hello and thanks.
