    Hello

    I just wanted to introduce myself, I started riding about a year a ago at around 450#. Thanks to biking and weight watchers I am now at 300. I didn't know that there was others like me, and its nice to not feel as alone. I am 29, father of 1(soon two), SAHD, and photographer. I look forward to getting to know you all!

    Welcome to the nuthouse! Congrats on the weight-loss. Those numbers are awesome.

    Photographer? What do you like to shoot?
    If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!

    Very cool. I spent 20+ years making my living with cameras. I did mostly food, then transitioned into mainly seniors. Now it's just a hobby.

    Welcome! I'm pretty new around here myself, having only gotten back into biking (and into this forum) less than 3 weeks ago. Going from 450 to 300 is quite an achievement! Keep it up!
