    I don't believe it.

    Staying under 150 lbs consistently the past couple of months for the first time in way too many years (148 lbs this week). Not sure if the gluten-free diet is part of it but it definitely isn't hurting. Still not at climbing weight but getting closer rather than further.
    Thanks.

    I think his suitcase was empty and you hit the nail on the head what is making up his additional weight.

    Me too. Need to drop another 15 lbs. to get to ~10% body fat. Don't know how much farther it would be healthy to go.

    Gender biased. I'm at 19% BMI and that's rock bottom. So, where did this extra six pounds come from?

    Muscle is heavier than fat, and some of the former has replaced some of the latter?

    Lost 20 this season, down to 175 and dropping steadily at a 2lb per week rate.
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    That's what I tell myself. I have been eating a lot of protein. Good thing I'm stronger, or I'd never get "all this" up a hill!

    Hit 169.0 on the bathroom scale 2pm. This may be all the further I go for now. Next season will be better. Have set several PR's the past month.

    Off season = loose weight (or else).

    I'm one of those people that have tried to gain weight most of my life - for years I was 5'2" and 95lbs.

    I'm really not sure what weight I should be shooting for. Currently, most family and friends are telling me that I look better than I ever have at 110 lbs due to gaining.

    Any pointers on this kind of situation in regards to cycling weight?

    The same way that some riders fear hills, I fear long flat stretches with headwinds.
    I hear you . I am 5'8" , 125lbs . I have no fear of hills but flat with heavy headwinds will kill me in a second .

    I'm dang glad to hear that. I did not want to have to lose weight after finally gaining it.
