I have lost 10 pounds since Jan 12, 2009. I am trying to get to 170, and I hit 195 today! I was hoping to be at my goal by June 1, but I may be there sooner. I
I got serious about it Feb 2nd.
I have set a goal for a 500 mile month.
I changed my riding route. I commute 15 miles each way. It used to be six miles.
I am doing the hundredpushups.com and twohundredsitups.com plans.
I have dumbbells and do arm and upper body routines, (although it is interferring with my pushups, I think).
I walk a mile twice a day.
I am tracking everything I eat on Fitday, staying around 1800-2000 calories per day.
There really is something to keeping a food diary. Knowing the true "cost" of eating something like doughnuts, in relation to how many miles you would have to ride to work it off, has merit.
Every pound lost is more motivation to keep going. I am really excited, because I am tired of dabbling with dieting and such and complaining about not seeing results. Ride more, eat less. It's really true for me.
I'll post updates soon.
