    6'1" 210lb. Pretty close to my 216lb peak.

    I've been down to 195 when I can ride somewhat consistently. But I'm lazy and I like to eat junk.

    185lb is my goal but I haven't been there in 20 years.

    5'11" and 205lbs. This is down by 30lbs since I started riding to work this Summer, which is up and down a few hills.

    I'm 3 feet 32 inches tall and weigh 150 ~ 155 pounds
    I'm a micro Clyde? I am, after all, about 20 ~ 25 pounds over what I should be.
    36+32=68=5'8".
    You should weigh 130-135? Really fine boned?
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    6'3", 208 lbs- down from 220 lbs four weeks weeks ago. BTW, I hate hills. I know it's psychological and sometimes I will climb a 12-15% grade with ease. Still, I'm usually dying on even the smallest hills. Hey Ishaped, I was 158 lbs. when I got married 9 years ago. I was thin but I wasn't that thin.

    I'm 6'3", 250lbs and I love to climb. However, I don't know that liking to climb makes one a good climber...me included. While I consider myself to be the best 250 pound climber that I ever come across, that is more an indication of the fact that I don't see many 250 pounders on bikes, and those that I do see are generally casual riders.

    In the past I've tried to get some of my linebacker sized friends who are good atheletes and in good shape to ride, but they just don't seem to go for it. I just think there is something about pushing a lot of girth down the road on a bike that is discouraging and makes cycling a very different sport for us Clydes than it is for non-Clydes. For Clydes, I find that it takes longer to get in shape and to develop the capacity to stay on top of a gear. Then, there is the whole saddle thing, which I also think is harder for Clydes to adjust to. Physics is a b***h!

    But, I can say one thing..."there is nothing more beautiful than a a fast Clyde with a pretty pedal stroke".

    ...And another thing. I find that on grueling group rides when everyone has to dig deep and go way past their limit I'm more of a factor on the ride and can inflict more pain on my non-Clyde riding buddies. I don't know if this is legitimate or just a self-aggrandizing delusion. Either way, I attribute this to the fact that as a Clyde Iím more used to suffering on the bike and have perfected it, while non-Clydes are in unfamiliar territory.

    Re: How Much do you Weigh

    6 Feet 296 lbs: Way too much but I have lost 39 lbs since the last week in June 2009. All from cycling and eating less.

    I suppose I should "weigh in" here. 5'9" @ 225, down from a max of 254 a year ago. Still losing, very slowly. Only do about 10 miles a day, usually pulling my trailer [http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...33#post9794933] with about 50 lbs of goods for delivery on it. Not much, but it's a start!

    I weighed in at 284 or was it 285 last week. I guess it ain't just the medication that is slowing me down up those hills. I think last year at this time I had hit the 240s for the first time in many many years.
    oops.. I seemed to have gone the wrong way and the ticker seems to be encouraging me to gain more weight




    Climbing.. Actually I climb pretty well on my road bike. At the end of the day I'm usually outclimbing most of the folks I ride with even if they dropped me on earlier hills. Of course it seems most of them the event of the year is a very flat 100 mile ride that has some headwind the last 20 miles while I was doing 200-400ks with a couple thousands feet of climbing every 100k. (It's not like I live in the mountains )
    I climb pretty well on my recumbent also and really try to pass folks going up hill but if the hill is too long and also steep I have to drop down a few gears and spin slowly and even then sometimes I'll catch the folks that passed me early on.

    212, 6' 0," down from 242, and live in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. If you ride here, you gotta climb. I live about 800 feet above the main drag through town, and climb it every day except when it rains.

    Beanz, I finaly caught up with you on the weight, 270lbs down to 234lbs this week. I am 5' 11" and I love to climb. I even climbed when I weighed 335lbs as a young man so I think all this I don't climb stuff is a sad excuse. Climb on, ECB1

    Ain't no fast climber here...

    I'm 6' 4" and 260 lbs. Sorry, only about 15 lbs of fat. If I got down under 245 I'd be a skeleton. I have a 38 inch waist. I also rid in the Ozarks near Harrison Arkansas. Climbs all over the place. Just can't keep up with those 130 lb rails that ride in the local club.

    235 lbs, 6'-3", I just ride where the road takes me. If the tour has climbs I do it, if it is flat, I do it faster.

    5'9" and 240 but built like a linebacker. I started out at 5'9" about 150 and wanted to get bigger and stronger for basketball (wanted to walk on in college). Soon realized I liked working out and now I'm trying to see how big I can get (I think 260 or so). Still could lose some weight around my midsection (about 34-36 inch waist). I ride my bike to commute and also some cardio.

    Also not a fan of hills, but I tackle them anyway.

    5'11" and 260 lbs.

    This time last year I was 220 and looking slim but unhealthy. I'm broad shouldered. Also last year this time I was fainting, freezing and and was having low blood pressure spells.

    About 10 years ago I had a large pituitary tumor, called a Macro Adenoma. It was a non active mass, pressing on my optic nerves and pituitary. It was removed, I recouped, but three years later it returned and radiation was done. Apparently radiation has resulted in collapse of the tumor as well as frying the pituitary.

    About five years ago hormones began to drop. Noticeably Thyroid and Testosterone. My primary care physician treated me but ineffectively as I now realize.

    Last year about this time, I did not know it but my Adrenal glands quit working. You can live without any or all other hormones, except for cortisone and it's buddy adrenaline.

    I began to stop eating, drinking, moving, was tired, pale and my blood pressure began to drop. I had about 10 episodes (called Addisonian crises) where I would loose consciousness and took several days to recover any energy. You can die during these events.

    Twice I passed out at work. That's when it's good to work in a medical facility! Hospitalized twice, on the second visit, they diagnosed me and sent me to a Endocrinologist.

    The E-doctor upped my thyroid medicine 10 times. He put me on prednisone to replace the cortisone, I now give myself Testosterone shots fortnightly and take a human growth hormone shot daily.

    Results? I feel 30 years younger. I'm building muscle mass, I feel great and my wife is saying "here we go again"

    Bad news is the Prednisone. While it energizes me, it also makes me gain weight and make me hungry, exacerbating the issue. My doctor say a good deal of the the weight is my new muscle mass (I am stronger than I have been for years) but the fat rolls don't lie.

    So this last summer I sold the motorcycles and started bicycling again. I feel great, but have to kick it to the next level to start loosing the blubber. I seem to have peaked at 260, keeping that level for the last few doctors visits.
