Hi. I just wanted to introduce myself. I started a strong diet/exercise routine in February. I've gone from 318 lbs down to 265 currently. I'm 26 years old and 6' tall. I lost the weight by going to the gym everyday doing mostly cardio and about 90 min of weight training per week. Since May, life has been a little chaotic including moving twice and the most recent move was 2400 miles from Sacramento CA to Columbus OH that involved 6 weeks of hotel/driving/fast food etc. . . I'm finally settled in and back into a good routine. I started riding my old MTB on some of the trails around here and loved it. A week ago I bought a Trek 1.2 road bike and I can't get enough of it!
Currently I'm trying to do weights at the gym 3 mornings/week before work and riding 15 miles almost every afternoon after work at an average of 18mph. I occasionally take a 1.5 mile jog during my lunch hour. I'm tracking my calories and exercise at thedailyplate (through livestrong.com) and I'm averaging less than 600 net calories per day since I got the bike. That includes eating about 2000/day and burning 1400/day. I've lost about 8lbs in the last 2 weeks since I started tracking everything. I think my ideal weight would be around 220.
