    There is plenty of hope for you! I have just gotten my first mt bike after about 15 years of not riding. I found a very sturdy 29 inch wheel mt bike that so far has been holding up very very well. Today I did my first mile or so. I am really out of shape, so had to take it slow and building up to it, you can do it!!! Diet will be key too, won't loose weight and hit your goals is you ride but eat processed fast foods etc. the game for me so far has been all mental! The greatest war we have to win is the war that starts in our head!

    I've heard it's a good idea to go for your walk first thing in the morning (before breakfast) if you're obese. I told my parents and they don't listen, but at least they're walking 3 times a week now.

    Instead of paying for a gym membership they should have paid for a nutritionist (garbage diet)

    I'm glad somebody else pointed that out. I sent the OP a PM the same day he posted and he has not even opened it.

    To answer his ? ANY hope for me? Not if you don't want it. It's impossible to help somebody that doesn't want help.

    Welcome aboard! Yes there's hope for you!!! Get with a nutritionist and start a exercise program. I was 380 lbs dropped some weight then couldn't lose anymore. Consulted with a nutritionist and started losing again. Then I stopped losing again. Then I sought guidance on the exercising. So now I see a Personal Trainer once a week. He kicks my butt...then gives me stuff to do at home til the next visit. I'm down to 329 lbs. YOU CAN DO IT!!!! This forum has some GREAT FOLKS TOO FOR SUPPORT!!!!
