Hello! Another newbie here!

Hi everyone,

I'm a 26 year old student trying something new! I began a weight loss journey several years ago and went from 375lbs to my current 232lbs. The problem is that last year in June I was 200lbs and steadily (but slowly) losing...and then I quit smoking. I decided that enough is enough, so I signed up for a cycling fundraiser in September from which all donations go to my local cancer center. It's a 25 mile road ride (not race). I'm excited but scared since the furthest I've ever ridden my bike was 12.5 miles last year on a mostly-flat greenway! I just started "training" 2 days ago, so my next stop is the training & nutrition forum to pick some cyclist brains!

Oh yeah, and I also have 8 screws in my hips so this should be an interesting experience for that reason too!

Looking forward to learning from you experienced cyclists!
