Literally dying! I am 36 years old and weigh 275lb's. I spent my entire life living how I wanted, and it seems to have caught up with me. I realized today when I went for a walk for about 2 blocks and got winded, that I am killing myself living like this.
I came home and broke out my bike (2005 Specialized mountain bike ridden 3x /lazy). Cleaned it up, lubed the chain, and aired up the tires. I took it out for about 10 minutes and came home misreable. I really hope you guys can help me out!
My hands were killing me, my entire crotch was numb, and I realized im a softy!!
Anyway I am committed to this for my kids, wife, and for myself. I live about 2 miles from the best mountain bike trails we have, and don't even have the endurance to enjoy them.
ANYWAY here we go. I WILL be 240lbs by June 1, and 210 by Decmeber. Hope to chat with you guys for advise along the jounrey!
