    Last year in Jan I was at 330, down to 222 now. It was a rough winter. I still need to lose 65-75 lbs to get to an "average" weight for my height & age.
    It's not easy but it sure is worth it.
    GREAT JOB!!!! It is so hard but totally worth it. I. Look back at how lazy and negative I was versus now and I wouldn't change it for the world

    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    Not having everyone together makes it hard. My wife has taken a break from the WW (online is how we do it), and that's led to me not being as strict either. Lots of different foods in the house lead to me not sticking with my restrictions the way I should. I lack the willpower alone.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I'm very happy that through the various other challenges I've managed to only gain 2 or 3 kilos. And, I'm on the way back down from that.

    So, right now cycling is good and improving, eating is good, healthy and resulting in slow loss, relationship is great, my mentality is improving, all I need is to make some progress on the fulfilling career front.

    Very good. I took a year or so break from bikeforums as well, and started hanging around here again just a month or two ago. I post most frequently in the Commuting forum these days. I am at a very comfortable weight now (230) (remember I'm 6'5) and am very happy. The books say I should be 210 but this "extra" 20 pounds isn't an issue. My wife and I left WW last summer, but we have managed to maintain our weight losses. My total loss was 70 pounds over a period of about 2 years.

    I know this is not a popular statement, but the bulk of the successful weight loss was when I stopped bicycling and was using an aerobic walking program (which is why I left BF for my year). But now that I'm at a very healthy weight, the lure of cycling has called me back. I love cycling, and now that I'm not obese it has become a real joy. I feel so mobile, agile, and strong.

    When I logged back in to BF and saw you were gone it didn't feel the same lol - But I'm glad to see you back!

    I am sorta back. I have to say that one new aspect of weight loss has been the fact that I've limited tv and computer time immensely and being more active either outside or in the gym or even just being more social. I could watch 3 to five hours of TV or be move net for that long but not anymore. Maybe an hour of TV and small spurts of internet.

    I can see your point on weight loss. Cycling, to me, is only good as a tool in weight loss. Your body seems to get used to the movement so much easier so it's a tool I use with gym work outs, kettle bells, walking, and hiking. It's no longer my prime way of exercising and the days of daily rides are over I think. I do need to start commuting more but not every day.

    Hey Karen! I've missed you! How are you?

    I don't post much to the blog anymore. Just no time but I do miss it. I try to limit tv and Internet time which allows me to be more active outside, inside at the gym and in my social life.

    I'm doing good chef. Riding and still going to WW. Picked my bike up today for it's spring tuneup and if the weather co-operates I'll get out for a couple of rides this weekend. I've been adding pilates and weights to my exercise routines to mix it up.
    Are you planning any touring trips again this year?

    I am so glad you Re doing well. I'll shoot you a pm soon. A great resource I found that you may just love. I'm glad you hear from you.

    Tours.... Nothing planned. I am kinda living day by day and forcing on weight loss and body transformation. I've always wanted to do Pilates. Have you tried kettlebells? I just started and it kicks your butt. I love it.

    Hi Chef
    I did a kettle bell workout with my trainer one day. A great workout but my back was sore for days. So I'm working at strengthening my back before I try that again. I'm also going it day by day….I'm really close to my goal and I am more or less maintaining…frustrating but with the weather improving it will be easier to do some longer rides. I just bought Selena Yeager's new book "Bike your Butt Off" I'm going to try her program and hope it jumpstarts my losing again. I'm going to Vancouver for a knitting retreat with my sister this weekend and they supply all the food so I will have to take my own little survival kit to make it through the weekend.
