    Zin,
    your posts are always very motivational. Here is my humble update... I reached a plateau and have been strugling a bit to lose more pounds. Rested for a little less than a week and I am now back. Here are my statistics:

    Age 26
    MHR 192
    RHR 60 (12 BPM less)
    Weight 192 lbs (8 pounds less)
    BMI 29.7
    Body Fat 27.9% (Technically not obese but almost...)
    Waist 39 inches (one inch lost)
    Average Cadence per Min: 74 (Started at 60)

    Until the next update,

    Ricardo

I have been doing spinning classes primarily and started taking tennis lessons twice a week which really works up a sweat too.

    My weight loss update:

    Height: 6 feet
    Beginning weight: 225 lb (April 9)
    Current weight: 185 lb (October 5)

    My ultimate goal is to cut down to 170 by New Years. To be completely honest, this forum motivated me to change my lifestyle and I would like to thank everyone here. Good luck to everyone!

    Bad news, I will be off the bike for the next three days. Good news is that I will be attending a retreat at Richard Simmons' exercise studio. Wish me luck. I'm putting some more tools in my weight loss toolbox. Zinn, what can I say, you are an inspiration.

    Hey guys I just started up witha weight loss routine. I currently changed my diet and ride my bike as much as possible but would like to add in the gym but dont know what to do there.

    What is a good recomendation for a beginner? Just do full body workouts? Focus on the major muscles (back, chest, legs)?

    As it is getting colder I ride slightly less and dont want to slow down any progress. I just started and am very excited and would love to see results.

    Hey Turboem1 congrats on getting the ball rolling. I started last winter, Jan 4th, with my new eating habits and working out. I focused on eating healty and limiting my calories. For working out I did some type of cardio 4 or 5 times a week. Nothing major at first. Just 30 minutes on a treadmill or elliptical machine. The key for me was controlling what I ate. No more crap. I ate when I was hungry but ate fruits or veggies. I lost 25 lbs before I even began cycling. Now I am down 60 lbs and cycle and run all the time because I can and I like it. Good luck.

    Wow Zin that is great. Last December when I posted here you were 212 and I was 190. This morning I was down to 173.6 but that is not the whole story since I dropped to 175.6 on April 12 and was up to 187 on September 5th . I blew it after April 12 and after I hit 187 I was focused 100% on my diet and biking and have set a goal of 170 by next month and a 1 lb loss per month until I hit 160.

    Joe

    Wow, thanks for all the very kind words, everyone. It makes me happy to know that my journey, my story, can help others who are trying to get healthy.

    Life has been just crazy since moving to Colorado. Sorry for not being more active here. I hope things settle down a bit so I can get back into a normal routine.

    My current weight has creeped back up to 192lbs. This is ok, since I've not been able to eat right and focus on it. At my last doctor visit, he told me that he wants to see me at 175lbs. :O

    Here I am at 192lbs at the Hilly Hundred ride in southern Indiana. Not entirely sure I can get down to 175lbs.

    And one of my before pics:

    Update here guys.
    I had an urinary and kidney infection that sent me to the hospital for 2 weeks and 2 more resting at home. That means one month away from the bike, however, I managed to mantain weight only eating healthy, veggies, lean meats, no fast food... Right now I am at 190lbs. I hope I start losing more weight as soon as I resume my biking...

    Hope that motivates someone.

    Ricardo.

    PS: My wife said that I my pants already look baggy so she will be getting one inch from the waistline.
    PS2: When she noticed the results she will start eating healthy too and hopefully biking...

    Good news, Ricardo.

    I'm getting back into weight loss mode for the winter. Seems LCing in the winter with lower activity levels works best for me.

    I am planning to add spinning classes, weight training, and perhaps swimming this winter. Now that I'm single and living in a new city, I don't have much to to with my time. Especially until I find a job.

    I get twice as much exercise in the winter than I do in the summer. I will be adding running as soon as my 970 New Balance shoes show up. And if it snows I will just get my Surly Pugsley out.

    I just started aerobics, I run, I do yoga, I'll keep bike commuting to work, and switch from road riding to offroad riding. It helps that my local club just built a cyclocross course only a three mile ride from my house.

    I have gotten some good winter gear, will be getting studded tires, so will ride as much as possible. I also will be ordering snowshoes, I want to do a lot of snowshoeing this winter.

    Found an older picture of me. Scary, but thought I'd post it. Taken back when horses were my love, and riding a bike was nowhere in my thoughts.

    Before:


    After (nearly 60 lbs lighter):


    A decent diet and a bike can sure change things.

    Newbie

    I currently weigh 175 and I want to get down to 155. I climb and bike. I am hoping to tone up a little and slim down. I was using FitDay, but I can't always find the foods I eat any tips?

    Manually enter in the foods using said foods nutritional lable. I have most of the items I it manually entered in a "custom foods." If you are serious about tracking the cals this is the best route. Good luck. Later.

    Congratulations! How long did it take to drop those 3 lbs? Remember you should lose aprox 1lb per week in order to ensure a healthy weight loss. I'd recommend reading the book Food for Fitness by Chris Carmichael and get a picture of yourself before starting your weight loss program and take some more pictures during the process to track your progress and hopefully inspire more people to lose weight.

    Ricardo.
