Your story sounds very much like mine!! It was (4) years ago when it happened to me, it was the best thing that I could have done!!!! I Love cycling.
Well...eight months ago I weighed myself and I was 293 pounds...
yeah...what you're thinking is a hundred times less than what I was thinking when I saw that.
I immediately changed my diet to three squares a day (with three mini-meals in between) that weren't necessarily healthier, but much...muCH...MUCH less. You know...one helping instead of ten.
I also immediately started walking. Started with a half mile...then a mile...then a mile and a half...up to three.
The weight started melting off.
In three months, I was down to 250 lbs. That's when I started running. I'd run a half mile at first...then walk a mile two and half...then a mile...and walk two...
Today...I'm running a 5 K a day, walking an extra mile...in the morning...
and I take a mountain bike pass 5-7 every other evening (each week I alternate...run every day...bike every other...bike every day...walk every other)
Now...I want to work road biking back in...my true love..
Today...I weigh 213 1/2 pounds...
Can't wait to get a road bike...
