Hello all! I have resolved that it is time for me to get back in the saddle. The birth of my wife and I's second child has kept me off 2 wheels for long enough. I am weighing near 270, which I swore I would never reach my max weight of 275 before the Marine Corps, again. I am getting dangerously close to that weight and I don't want to be there. I have not trained on the bike for about 2 years and I have balooned in that time. I was about 230 then, but still not where I want to be.

My goal is to lose the almost 70 pounds to get back under 200. I have not visited this forum in ages either, so hello to everyone. I got the bike out last night and did some cleaning up on it. I am going to pick up some tubes this afternoon. I can't ride today as I just gave blood, but I will be at it on Thursday afternoon.
