Reached a new milestone today!

When I first started riding my my bike I weighed in at 240lbs. I lost 50lbs but I got stuck at 190-193lbs forever. Today, I stepped on the scale and weighed in at 185lbs.

For all you guys and gals out there trying to lose weight just keep riding your bike and watching your diet. It will come off, even if you get stuck like I did, just be patient and positive with yourself.

My goal weight is 160lbs. I still have a bit further to go but this 5lb loss has me reinvigorated.

That's awesome.

Can I ask how tall you are? I'm 6'2" and could not imagine being less than 175-180, even then I'm happy at 190-200, that's where I am now. Less would be strange for me.

5'9" with a naturally thick build. My nutritionist calculated I would have about 7-10% at 165lbs. The goal weight is so I can enjoy a beer from time to time with out worry.

Heh. I don't drink so maybe that's why I don't mind as much!

Good luck!

I hear you, I hate the plateaus that naturally occur with weight loss and getting fit. Congratulations on continuing the hard work and breaking through.

Congratulations! I hope to follow in your footsteps, or tire tracks, as the case may be.
