    How to lose the rest - the front porch

    About a year and a half ago I started riding a bike. The result have been great. The one thing I have not been able to do is finish up. I still have a "front porch", or in other words, the belly is staying with me. I am in pretty good shape, even though I still weigh about 235 pounds.
    I rode two metric centuries last weekend which included a fair amount of climbing. No problems, just a little tired. So, why can I not lose the other 25 pounds?
    Has anyone else had this problem and then solved it? What did it take?
    I started riding my bike to get healthy. Now I try to stay healthy so I can ride my bike.

    Yep, Its simple, Quit feeding the stomach. It will go away.
    I had the same problem. 3400 miles this year and a 20 lb weight loss, all in the stomach area.
    Eat very small meals. Rode 385 miles last week. 101 miles Saturday.

    New exercise: PUSH away from the table. No beer. No desserts.
