Some eight months after a horseback riding accident in August 08 I found myself back at nearly 270 lbs. I had fractured my scapula and broken five ribs, and been unable to get much exercise. Anyway in April I decided to get back on my bike and at lest commute the four miles to work maybe three times a week. Somehow I stumbled upon Livestrong.com and in May started tracking my food intake and exercise. Being accountable is working very well for me, also its free. My wife has joined me and even some friends. Anyway check it out and try it maybe it will also be a benefit to you.
You're welcome to look me up SEMSD
PS. As of today Iím down to 233 lbs and I"m riding about 125+/- miles a week.
