As someone who is tired of being fat, I decided to finally do something about it. I used to love to ride my bike as a kid and thought it would be an enjoyable way to get in better shape. Last Sunday I stopped by the LBS and tried a few bikes out. I ended up taking a Trek 7.2fx home with me. I've been riding it every day since and I really didn't realize how out of shape that I am. This is tough!
So far I am just able to ride 3-4 miles at a time. I read about you guys riding all these miles and I hope that I can get there eventually, but for now my legs are killing me after a short ride. I hope that ican build up some stamina in a few weeks and be able to get out more. I'm glad that I found this forum and look forward to learning and losing weight.
