    I know it's not much......

    ......but I was so tickled to hop on the scale this morning to see that in the first couple weeks of cycling and trying to watch what I eat (not always so successfully as I was on a road trip), have lost around 20 pounds. Doc says I should be careful about losing too fast, but I feel fine and have more energy. I realize that weight loss slows after a period, but I was just so psyched to see the numbers on the scale. My first major milestone will be sub 300. It may yet be a way off, but at least I am 20 pounds closer. Many thanks for all the inspiration I find on this forum......keeps me going.

    20 lbs is nothing to sneeze at! Congratulations, and keep it up. Success is a journey, not a destination.

    Thats great. Keep on riding.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    nicely done! so long as that number keeps going in that direction week after week - then it doesn't really mater how big the number it is. so long as it keeps going down week after week, month after month, year after year :-)
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting

    Congratulations! And please stop measuring yourself against some imaginary standard here. 20 pounds is a lot.

    Have you started noticing your clothes fitting differently? That happened for me when I lost my first 20 pounds.

    I am always amazed when I pick up a 20 pound sack of anything and realize what losing 20 pounds means to our bodies. Congrats.

    Go to a supermarket and start stacking 1 pound packages of butter in your cart. :-)

    Congrates, keep those pounds melting away.
    Best thing about cycling is when I'm at work I'm thinking of cycling, when I'm cycling I'm thinking about cycling.

    Absolutely!! Using a fresh notch on the belt. Had a pair of jeans on that had been slightly loose fitting before.....when walking up the steps in front of my wife, they actually fell to my ankles and tripped me on the landing. We both laughed so damn hard I nearly wet myself....she did. Priceless.
