    Chubby wannabe cyclist from the flatlands of Michigan

    I have been a lurker 'till now and found many interesting threads here along with somedown-to-earth advice.

    Cycling seems to be a good way to lose some weight while actually being able to hold my attention, since I don't actually have to take the initiative to get up and go to the gym only to be faced with the same four walls all the time.

    I hope to bleed all of you dry of the great advice I have seen given here, only so that I may become more adept and maybe be able to offer some of my own one day .

    Hello from the peninsula

    Hi Clyde S Dale,
    Cycling will get you looking and feeling good.
    Too lose weight you got to cut back on the calorie intake.

    Hello fellow Clydesdale !

    You will find cycling not only good for your heart, but also your mind and soul. Who would think that two wheels and a good path could be so beneficial!

    Good luck on the wt loss, my wife and I just joined Wt Watchers. The Clydesdale - Athenia forum has allot of inspiriation and support!

    Good Luck to you!
    Scott

    Thanks all ... I have obviously already been to the Clydesdale section and will probably do a bit o' reading there while making a final decision on a bike and to figure out what the heck I'm gonna wear.

    I think that needs to find a spot on my inspiration wall ... although writing it in frosting on a cake and eating could be an option too ... nah.

    Howdy and welcome to the forums.

    The losing weight and riding is all interrelated. But one thing I've found is to lose much weight, you need to ride AND change how and what you eat; you get a double effect then. Good luck and keep rolling.

    Your sig kind of decribes me too .


    I have already done the "change eating" thing and lost about 30 pounds ... but seem to have hit a wall at my current weight. This is why I have been reluctantly looking at some form of exercise. This is how I discovered cycling as I think the constant change of scenery and limitless adventures will hold my interest and allow me to stick with it. I am excited by the prospect of getting started now.

    Thank all of you for the welcomes.

    There is a common phrase that comes up in the Road Cycling forum, "I'm too fat for this sport", usually said by people that weigh 150 when the competition weighs 145, and the signature line is a play on that one.
    "be careful this rando stuff is addictive and dan's the 'pusher'."
