40 years old - 240 lbs.
Started riding late last year - and I just jumped on a scale this afternoon and I am down 10lbs.
I have been riding on and off - maybe once per or every other week for about 12 miles, then in late January I decided to do it a little more, now I am up to 20 miles on a Saturday morning and sometimes a quick 5 miles run in the middle of the week - no more
I have also changed my job, so the stress level is down a little, my new job is paying less but the stress level is lower, and I am eating better too. No strict diet, still a Pepsi every other day, eating better portions, more green bananas, less rice, etc. Still busy with classes but might take a semester break soon.
I told my wife that I felt like I had lost weight, she hasnt seen it yet , people that I worked with said I lost weight and look a lot less stressed.
If I can only kick the pepsi habit and discipline myself to do 3 sprints per week:
Sat: Main ride - 20-30 miles
Mon/Wed/Fri - quickie 5-10 miles
I could get down to 230lb very quickly and then concentrate on 200-190 by the end of the year.
