Hi...I'm Matt. I recently got into Mountain Biking full force a few months ago. I purchased a new Gary Fisher Tassajara. I've been riding a lot and breaking almost everything on the bike. I've spent a couple hundred dollars just to make my bike stronger....but Alas I'm have a great time riding.

I got discouraged breaking everything on a new bike....So I did the only thing I could think of. I lost weight. I started in June and since then I have lost 42 pounds. Now I'm planning to lose more and then I want to get into some Road Bicycling touring. Itís been my dream to ride across America. By next year I want to get a touring bike and then start little weekend trips and week long trips here in California. Then maybe in a couple of years attempt an Across America journey.

Thatís my story and Iím sticking to it.
Matt

Welcome to the forums!

Forty-two pounds lost since this last June?? My hat's off to you if you've achieved such a result safely.

Enjoy!

SipperP: Im up in Ventura county in the little city of Thousand Oaks.

Robcat: Yeah...I can't believe the results that I got. I did the atkins diet and worked out every weekday in the gym. The weight just poured off.
