I started my journey in 2008 @ ~300 lbs. Thanks to my bicycle and a bit of determination I got down to about 150 lbs. I was riding 200+ miles per week, racing, and loving life on the road!
I got married in 2010, started a new job, sold two houses, moved to a new house and in the middle of all of that I got out of my routine. No excuse I know, but it is the truth.
Today I find myself back up at ~225 lbs. needless to say, I am not thrilled. I have decided that I will start riding again, lose the weight and stay vigilant and do my best to keep it off.
I have a few questions:
1. Has anybody else ever found themselves in this position? The road BACK to a healthy weight seems so long, I can't believe I let this happen...
2. None of my old riding clothes fit, any recommendations for loose fitting stuff that would "hide" me a bit?
3. I have a 2008 Cannondale CAAD 9, is it capable of someone of my weight?
Thanks for any help!
