Nice Problem To Have - Question for Emeritus Folk
When I started biking, I was up to 210lbs and the doctor had just told me I needed to make a lifestyle change (due to some nasty blood work results, and blood pressure, etc.). He gave me an initial goal of losing 10% of my body weight. Well, as of today (5 months later)...I'm down to 185 and so I've met that goal and then some. My question is this:
My wife asked me this morning, "When will you stop, and more importantly, how will you stop (losing weight that is)?"
Any former Clydes hanging around here that can shed some light on this? How do you stabilize your weight when you reach your ultimate goal? I plan to continue riding as I've gotten addicted to it now and really enjoy it. In fact, I can't really see myself slacking off in the riding and if anything will ride more/farther. I still plan on eating the way I'm currently eating (much more healthy than before). Is it a simple matter of eating more calories (of a healthy nature)?
