Hello all,

Started a journey last september @ 421 " Was also my diagnosis of T2" @ 11.8 A1C
Since then the last 2 are 5.4 and now 5.2
Changed eating habits and started walking
I started walking 4-5 miles a night. I have seemed to of hit plateau. It has been maintaining, but not moving.
Now at 359 , Still a long way to go.... Goal of 200
But now I bought a bike.
I will post a before picture as soon as I get it done. Hopefully withing the next couple days.

My real hope is this is something I will enjoy and will push be closer to my goal.
I have a friend that is an avid biker and he is giving me a lot of tips.

Encouragement is everything. And surrounding yourself with like minded people is key.
BTW : Bike is a Trek fx2 with disc's - Hope is survives me.

Sorry the pictures are so huge...


245 lbs March 1st 2018. We had 8 kids in 9 years that contributed to my weight gain as you can imagine. : )


210 lbs now after walking and biking since March 1st 2018. Now laid up with a broken leg. I'll be able to walk with the cast July 9th.

Lost 55 so far

I bought a trek hybrid last August weighing in at 276. This morning I weighed 221 on 4/27/19. I ride 20 miles 4 times a week and 2 days I do a 6 mile single track through the woods. The single track is a killer on the 20 year old Wal-Mart bike. Looking at real mtb now and hope to buy one soon.

In 2016 we changed our way of eating to low card high fat. I would call it ketoish. In May of last year I bought a used Gary Fisher Mako from a friend when I hit 300. I now ride a DS 8.5



355 in 2015



280 in 2019

In 1990/91, I was about 220... 1986 KHS Fiero.


2016 or so... Pretty close to 360... Freshly upgraded 1986 KHS Fiero...


July 2019. 258. Yes, same 1986 KHS Fiero...


I had gastric sleeve weight loss surgery in Oct 2018. Something needed to be done, as my health was declining. Now, no blood pressure meds, no diabetic risk, heart health is drastically improved, and I'm back on my bikes. 134 pounds from my heaviest, 112 since surgery. I'm 244 pounds. 4 pounds heavier than when I retired from the Navy 18 years ago...

Thanks for the inspiration guys! I'm in the ame boat, want to lose at least 15 lbs in the next few months. Also I heard many positive reviews about coolsculpting, it helps to get rid of fat cells. Wanna try it too in the near future.
