Yes, 2 years ago I weighed 268, now I weigh 215. Yes, I eat mostly the right things. Yes, for the last year I have averaged 140 miles weekly.....BUT....my 215 pounds seems to be absolute bottom!
I am 5'11" barefoot and look quite trim (except a stupid soft belly) but it seems that, no matter what I do, my weight is fixed at 215....I feel that if I could get to 190, it would be a quantum leap in my cycling performance, especially for climbing!
Has anyone else experienced this "downward plateau"? I am not willing to reduce my food/nutrition intake given my intense exercising regimen. BTW, I am 64 years old (and keep up with the 40 year olds). Should I shut up and just be who I am and enjoy our wonderful sport?
Love to hear any opinions. Raydog
