It happened, I got older and fatter. It wasn't supposed to happen, I remember clearly at age 28 (last bicycle race I was in) thinking, "as long as I keep riding I'll be fit when I get old". 26yrs later went to the doc for a heinous cold and warned the staff I probably had high blood pressure. Turns out that 800calories of beer won't get burned off with 300calories of cycling. Back on sobriety which worked for 12yrs, on blood pressure medicine. Now for the obvious part. Reducing caloric intake and increasing caloric output.
225lbs @ 5'9 and not big boned.
