I will turn 30 in june, and on Jan 1st 2006 I weighed in at 282 pounds at 6'3" tall. I have been riding for about a year and a half and love it. Believe it or not, I am pretty good on the bike; I regularly do 30 - 40 mile rides both solo and with a local club. However... I am so sick and tired of barely keeping up in group rides because of my weight... if I were 200 pounds, I would be able to use my leg strength to blow everyone away. EVERYONE!!!!
This year I will eliminate 83 pounds of disgusting FAT from my body. I will weigh in every sunday morning, and post my results. On 01/08/2006 I weighed in at 272.4 (9.6 lbs loss for first week) I'm not really excited about loosing that much because that was just the normal big drop when starting a diet...
I am not looking for advice or even support, I just want to be able to publicly post my results each week. If I gain a pound I will have to deal with the the unpleasant task of posting it... Everyone will know.
If you ARE going to loose a significant amount of weight this year, I encourage you to use this thread to post your own numbers. If you do this, the only thing I ask is that you stay 100% commited to posting your weekly results every Sunday morning. This is not a social event, nor is it a game. My future is in my hands... now is the time.
9.6 down, 73.4 to go.
