Just wanted to say hi all.
I've been snooping around this forum for a few days, and it seems like there is a lot of positive and mutual support here. I thought I should finally jump into the mix.
My wife's been after me to set down the bacon cheeseburger, and take better care of myself. For some reason nothing has been able to motivate me. That is until I found this place.
I have the typical Clyde story. Used to ride 60-100 miles a week... stopped riding 5 years ago... Got married... moved into a fixer-upper... desk job... lost track of time... ballooned up to +300 lbs... excuses... excuses... excuses... blah blah blah.
For some reason I was reminded how much I missed cycling while watching the Tour de France this year. Then I remembered that the word "clydesdale" is the term to describe a large cyclist. One google search later, and here I am.
I'm completely inspired by you guys! That "before and after pics" thread was the clincher.
I plan on getting back on my bike and working out a food plan before this weekend.
I look forward to interacting with you folks here.
Thanks for the inspiration to relight the fire!
