I just turned 53 years old. I ride an average of 14 miles/day, 4 days/week. On weekends I get in longer, recreational rides, usually around 25-30 miles, and up to 60 miles. I'm 5'8" and weigh 215 lbs. I have always been a big eater and I have never made any kind of concerted effort to loose weight before. Now I am just tired of being so big. This may sound strange, but how do you loose weight? Are there any tips or tricks that work other than eating less. If I told myself I was just going to eat less, it would seem difficult to gauge how much less I was eating.
Also, I quit smoking about 5 years ago and I put on about 25 lbs. I would like to take off 30.
Can anyone share their experiences with me?
I know, I spelled "lose" wrong, but I can't get it to edit.
