Fat guy checking in

Decided that I'm going to get in shape if it kills me, before it does kill me. Bought a lightly used Specialized Rockhopper from a friend, and have been riding it for about 2 weeks straight, gradually increasing the mileage everyday. So far I love it! I haven't been on a bike since middle school. Going to be looking around to find things to make me want to keep at it. I used to be a set up tech for a sporting goods store, so I know a little bit. hopefully I can give and take a little!

Any advice will be appreciated.
