    sort of...basically it's interval stuff max effort and you do "stations" extremely good for cardio, as well as endurance, not to mention you do get stronger...

    Outstanding!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    Nice going!
    I'm aiming for 205-ish, but at 6'6" that's pretty light.

    I'm 6'4" and 185 is definitely not too skinny, so 205ish at 6'6" is doable. What's your starting weight?

    And I still can't quite believe I am here. 185 is the official 60 pounds lost mark for me! Lots of hard work for sure, but it is the cycling that kept me going through all of it. I would have gotten bored with the gym a long time ago.

    A couple of years ago I got an entry-level Scattante bike from Performance (R-560) but did not start to put in any serious mileage until about a year ago. Since then, I have put in more and more miles and switched to a healthier, more balanced diet (and more moderate portions!). Sure enough, those pounds slowly but surely disappeared. Over 45 pounds lost. I haven't been this light since sometime before college. I feel much better in general, no more heartburn and I have a hobby that I really enjoy as well.

    So, I'm sad I'm not officially allowed in this club any more..but hey, that was the goal!
    I hope to follow you soon. First of November last year, I weighed 221. Yesterday, I weighed in at 201.2.
