    I was a guinea pig in med school and participated in a study where I had to increase my weight by 10%, and keep it on for a few weeks.

    At start of study: 145
    After 3 weeks: 160

    It was easy to gain the weight, they gave us free "sustical" which is like ensure. I drank 3 or 4 daily. Only took 3 weeks to gain the 15 pounds. It took more like 3 months to lose it.

    That was 20 years ago.

    Current weight: 143. Fluctuates from 136-148.

    Pre-game ride. There is a reason the NREL wind lab is there. The Reynolds aren't as well behaved as the Rails in the wind, but I like them just fine.

Coupled with the no smoking, I intend to rock my bike in the Spring.

    I want to do the Glen race, but don't know if they will let me bring the treadmill.

    Thanks... I find it's good to keep a bit of perspective as to why I started riding a bike in the first place as I find my self getting sucked in deeper and deeper into discussions not greatly dissimilar to this....

    BTW, Herbie, that post (ie reminder) had me bring out the kettlebells and medicine ball to use while watching football. Thanks.

    230 was my weight class. These days, 160-165.

    I was well over 200 in the yearly 2000s. I've made pretty steady progress since dusting off the old Schwinn a few years ago. I slipped under the 200 mark in 2013.

    Nice.

    93 was scary. I planned on doing a few loops of the Morgul, but rode towards Hygiene instead.
