Hi all, after a 2+ year hiatus from biking (and exercise) I am back.
I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes last week (11/22/11) and now need to make some serious changes.
After I was diagnosed I immediately began getting active again (and watching my diet). I've been to the gym 3 times, played pick up men's basketball with 20 something year olds at the gym, and got on my bike on the trainer last night. I completed Coach Troy's Clysedale Spinerval workout.
I am 6'7" about 260#s. I dropped about 15#s over the last few months without trying, turns out it is lost water weight due to the diabetes.
The main reason for me coming back here is because I plan on cycling, a lot. I also signed up to ride 100 miles in June 2012 here in CT in the Tour de Cure supporting the ADA and the fight against diabetes.
So, I'll be sticking my nose around here, maybe looking for support from time to time.
But here is to getting healthy! And boy do I have work to do in order to be ready for a century in June!
