    Weight Plateaus Bite!

    Well, I have been expecting it, and its here Im stuck. 4 weeks and 15 pounds. I lost it rather quickly and didnt try. I slipped into Mcdonalds and hit them up for a Double cheeseburger and a value Fry. I must say, it all tasted like a salt block. My lips were puckered afterwards. I have not been craving food like that much at all and I havnt cheated on Junk.

    Hopefully this may kickstart my body. Ill admit, it was good but I didnt have that mouth watering lust for it like a couple months ago.

    Interesting concept. How many miles a month do you ride? I have progressively upped the mileage the last few months to get ready for the upcoming season, and I'm down about 14 pounds since last fall......have another 16-21 pounds to go (would like to shoot for 145-150 pounds). I'm not super strict on my diet - I don't count each calorie per day and eat crap food, but I keep a general consensus of what I take in so I know about where I'm at and making sure I get enough in me to aid in recovery.

    You should also start burning off your "winter fat" soon enough as well

    I think there is something to working off the winter fat. As soon as the weather warmed up here I noticed I lost my appetite. I'm craving fruits and raw vegetables. Perhaps our bodies actually do respond to the seasons.

    Well, I dunno, Im back up to 195 today. Stupid, I shoudnt weigh everyday. As for mileage? I ride 45-60 minutes every day on the trainer. I rode 20 miles outside today. I do my shortest loop (16.1 miles in 58 minutes. Im not one of those fast guys. So I try to figure 16 miles a day (thats one hour on the trainer) for myself. I was hoping to keep off that extra poundage. Maybe its water, I had alot of sodium today and yesterday. Im still trying to figure this stuff out.

    If I ride everyday, I guess you could say I ride 75-100 miles a week? or 400 a month? (estimate) I know trainer mileage aint the same. Watching Sportscenter while Im spinning but hey, I try to keep the ol HR up to around 150-155.

    Your doing fine
    It goes in surges, jumps and starts. Your body weight will fluctuate a few pounds either way.
    Just keep eating as well as you can while exercising as much as you can. Keep both at a rate you can handle mentaly without going crazy and it'll happen.

    it just happens at a much slower pace than everyone wants

    C heath - if you notice my weight loss record it goes up two, down three, or up 1 down 2 week by week. Are you keeping measurements? If you cut sodium for about five days, you'll notice a difference.

    It sounds like you are doing great with the mileage. 16 mph is pretty impressive.

    Hey, trainer mileage counts, especially if your trainer is like mine. I have a Fluid2 and putting mileage on it is actually more difficult than putting miles on while riding on the road. Give yourself more credit, your working your butt off (literally).
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    yes, the mirror has been a blessing, whod ever thought you would gain fat on your back? My shoulders, back and everywhere else has totally changed. I went out got 20 yesterday and it was horrible, today, I am sick so I think I was sick yesterday as well, just didnt feel it. I got the aches, you know, when the shirt rubs your back and hurts? Im gonna take a vacation day today. Weather suposed to be nice this weekend and I think Ill resume mabe Saturday.

    Weighing yourself daily isn't such a bad thing.....if you know about where your weight is, you can determine if you're hydrated enough. I will typically weigh myself in the morning and at night.....and I did so after my ride today. I was down about 2 pounds under what I normally am, so I need to get some water in me.
