Hello all, I'm new around here. My name is Jordan and I'm in Austin, Tx. After being rough on my body and always being sitting still reading and writing for college then grad school, I had gotten up to 280lbs. I graduated last May, and got a less stressful job. Now every day I eat my lunch at my desk, then use my lunch break to go for a walk. I'm down below 265 now. I am just starting to take the next step and begin commuting to work by bike. I used to be an avid bike rider (always mountain bikes and trails before), and now with the help of the folks over in the commuting forum, I've found and bought a Panasonic touring bike. My goal is to be back at the same weight I was when I was running track and putting over 1,000 miles per year on my bike: 220.
Nice to meet y'all.
