Sup. I'm a 16 year old, 279lb guy. Yeah, that's bad, I know. But I was a lot worse: May of 2012 I weighed in the doctors office at 354, and after giving up red meat and walking a lot more often, I made it to around 300 as of three weeks ago. But, since I'm a high school senior and looking to kick this weight before I get out of here, I decided to (and so happy, never going back) become a pesco-vegetarian and start running/biking more often as well as counting calories to maintain 2K/D. It got me my 21lb in 3 weeks loss, which may seem almost unhealthy but in the way I manage myself works (as told by my doctor). My goal is 192lbs by this coming May.
That bio over and done with, I ordered a GMC Denali Road Bike from Wal-Mart—my minimum-wage paycheck can't cover treks—and signed up to participate in the Sea Gull Century, a 100 Mile bike through Maryland. I was wondering if there are any concerns for breaking back wheel spokes (at least until I get down some more) during the long ride?
