Month of milestones
It's been a long time since I've posted on here, but this has been kind of a milestone month for me so I thought I'd share my progress. When I bought my bike last year (Trek 7300) I was down to 330 pounds. Even though I was riding I still managed to put on another 17 pounds. Last August I decided to get serious about my diet again and slowly but surely I started losing again. Just a couple of weeks ago I finally got below 300 pounds and today I am 295! I haven't been below 300 pounds since college (18 years ago) so it feels really good.
Also, I've been able to substantially increase my mileage this month. Since I started tracking my miles, I've done 141 miles in April and 155 miles in May. My goal for June was 200 miles and I crushed it! As of this morning, my total for the month is 318 miles. I rode 18 out of 30 days which is also an all time high. I enjoyed riding when I started last year, but I absolutely love it now. I'm even thinking about getting a road bike so I can go further and faster.
Even though I haven't posted in a long time, I'm on here all the time reading threads and getting lots of great info and inspiration. I want to thank all of you for that.
