    Hello from Birmingham...Alabama...not England :)

    Been lurking for awhile; finally decided to participate!

    So..my story

    By November of last year, I had let myself get up to 262 lbs. It was the heaviest I had been in some time. The string of engagement parties, the wedding, the honeymoon, and the newly married home cooked meals from my lovely wife had taken their toll on my waistline!

    I knew I needed to make a change.

    After running a half marathon and training for a full marathon a few years ago I remembered that I HATE running. I used to ride a bit in college (mountainbike) and decided to get back into shape and cycling with a road bike.

    A Felt F85 was purchased in Novemeber. I am currently riding approximately 50 miles a week, and in March doing a charity ride for cancer. I plan to ride 61 miles, a mile for every year my Mother lived before she lost her battle with cancer in October 2011.

    Looking forward to learning more from everyone!

    Thanks!

    tl;dr - Got married. Got fat. Loosing weight. Cycling again. 61 mile ride in March in memory of Mom.

    Welcome to Bike Forums.

    My F-85 now has 36,000 + miles on it.

    Got in 340 miles last week.

    Happy Miles to you.

    Crank it up and get in more miles. You will become stronger each week.
