You might find that you don't actually lose much weight…….
Combined with a decent diet, exercise can help you lose flab where you don't want it, and put on muscle where in other parts. You may become more healthy, and look better as a result, but your weight may change very little because muscle is denser than fat.
Enjoy cycling as part of your life (not just touring), as a couple, as a family, and as an individual, and it will have benefits all round.
Welcome back to an activity that has been part of my life for most of the last five decades and a bit….. but I am new here today too!
