Well, I've been reading this thread for a few weeks now, and finally decided this thread could help me reach my goal by being accountable.
I am 32 years old and about a month ago bought a Trek 2100. I am totally addicted and haven't been this motivated to get back in shape for years. I want to lose about 60 lbs. In the past three weeks I have lost about 10 pounds. I have been riding 4 to 5 times a week.
Everyones storys a very inspiring, and think this thread is a great thing!
