    No need to post anything here unless you want to.

    In the end it's results that count.

    191.5 again this morning. I'll be putting in some long miles this weekend, and am expecting that to get me at least back under 190.

    No way am I posting in this thread -- I already have issues; this just exacerbates them.

    I'm fat. That is all.

    Which explains why you posted in a thread that you said you weren't going to post in.

    I was at 172, quit smoking and now at 203 lbs , and I am only 5'6". Hopefully riding again will start shaking the weight down in a few weeks.

    Down one pound this week, to 201lbs. Until my next glass of water, that is...

    Still. It makes me feel better than if it was up one pound, to 203.

    Biking has 'saved my soul' weight wise. I'm 5-8 and weighed 265 on Feb 1st. I've been biking regularly since and I'm now down to 205 and dropping. Looking to be below 200 for the first time in twenty years! (I'm 48).

    204 (from 231) after my 72 mile ride today...
    And that's after drinking about 6 bottles of water.

    So ... you're about my weight, also losing and also riding long distances. Have you ever experienced the following?

    For the last couple of months, I've been going on a long ride (60+ miles) once a week, and I've noticed a pattern in terms of weight. When I get back from the ride I have, of course, lost three or four lbs. After I recover (and drink water, etc...) the next morning I'll be back where I was pre-ride. But then, over the course of the next day or two I'll shoot up sometimes 6-8 lbs. and stay there for a two or three days, feeling bloated with somewhat swollen hands and feet. Then, it all comes crashing down.

    Obviously, this is just some kind of water retention cycle or something, but it is disconcerting. I'm a little worried I might be doing more harm than good. It seems to happen worse on the 90+ weeks.

    When I first started in March I was losing a pound per day and dropped from 231 to 210 really fast. The heavier you are the easier it is to lose weight. Then I plateaued at 210 for what seemed like FOREVER. I still kept at it though and even though my weight stayed about the same my clothes continued to fit looser and looser.

    What kind of bike do you have? I recently switched from a big bulky mountain bike to a trek 1.1 road bike and the pounds are starting to come off again. Maybe because I can get a higher RPM when I pedal for a longer period of time... I really don't know.

    It's quite likely related to carbohydrate intake. Simple sugars tend to cause one to retain water. It affects some people more than others, I believe. So if you're fuelling your rides and/or your recovery with gels, energy drinks, other simple carbs, that might be it. You could try changing your on-bike nutrition and see what happens.

    I have a Fuji Absolute (performance-hybrid oslt). But I'm waiting on a new Surly LHT I ordered last week. Very excited to get it in.

    Interesting. I'll keep closer eye on that sort of thing. I don't really do any kind of 'fueling' per se - at least not any energy drinks/bars or the like. Just water and light meal after. Maybe I should try that.

    Good point... I should probably lighten up in the Red Bull...
    I don't even think it helps me energy wise but I really like the taste of it.

    good grief now I have to weight myself ... ugh I got down to 206 lbs in 2006, back in 2010 in peak body transformation (not for cycling only) I was 218 lbs. I think aside from being hard to look at in the mirror I also gained weigth this past 18 mos and am probably 225 lbs. at 5' 11 3/4" my trainer once told me my goal should be 196 lbs. I don't think I'll ever see that number!

    STILL 137. No yo-yo, yet. Something HAS to be amiss!
