I will be 50 in just a few months so I think I have found my forum. All my life I abused myself partying, not eating right, smoked until 2003 after my 2nd heart attack. I am 5ft 8in tall and weighed 310 lbs when I started riding 9 weeks ago. I am down to 284 now so that is encouraging. I don't feel my riding endurance is progressing as I would like it to however, and that is bothering me. I am sure I will be asking many questions and trying to pick everyones brains, so be prepared lol.
