200lb's & getting heavier the more I ride
I do not have a body fat problem, I have a more muscle/more appetite problem. My legs are getting much bigger than they were since I became incapable of running, I'm just afraid of getting back to my fighting weight of 220lbs. It's genetic & the only way I could control it would be painful fasting.
I was struggling at 185, wanting a much lighter bike thinking it would make my knee & life easier. But while waiting for this 15lb bike that would make my jacked up knee & my life a whole lot easier. I rode & I got bigger, even my upper body has regained it's youthful appearance,LOL! So now I have this 15lb bike that doesn't make a dimes worth of differenc,e $6,000.00 maybe, but I should have just stuck with the $700.00 bike. I know most of you guys are trying to lose weight & I really admire you for that, because Katy bar the door if I'm working out & get hungry. I feel like a fighter trying to cut weight it sucks & I'm just not going to do it for love nor cycling.
Do I sell the super bike and punch the 145 pounder's off their superbikes when they look at my $700.00 bike and turn their noses up at me, or do I keep the superbike, put some 27's or bigger and just try not to think about the $6,000.00's and enjoy the ride?
