Noticable Improvement

Ahh I've been cycling for a little over a month now and I'm really impressed with myself. My pants are starting to fit looser, I sleep less, and I can now ride up into my neighborhood (which is all uphill) in one solid ride, versus where I used to get so wore it would take me 4 or 5 breaks to make it all the way up! I'm so happy for myself and am glad that I have finally found something that I can be active and happy with, sorry I just had to tell someone

Good job! Keep it up.

I started riding again back in July and there was a hill that I thought I would never get up in one try. The day I got up it without sounding like a 40 year chainsmoker jogging was awesome.

Good job. It's those small accomplishments that make riding worthwhile. Whether the accomplishment is around the waist or up a hill.

Good work!

Grab life by the handlebars and start pedaling.

Keep it up, and the rubber side down.

Awesome man! As I recall there's a book out there somewhere about an extremely overweight guy that lost craploads of fat and became one of the top racers in his area. Pretty cool book, from the parts I read.
Anyway, congrats!

The book is called "Heft on Wheels" and it is a VERY good book. Oh, and congrats PWRDbyTRD!
