Actually, I know I haven't posted much in this forum, but I have been impressed with all the inspirational stories. Being 6'4", falling into the Clyde category was easy for me. Throughout college I was about 220 until having that number creep up to 245 as a software developer. Hours in front of the computer and takeout food didn't seem to benefit my health, oddly enough.
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!
