New to BF wanted to say Hello
As the title said I new to this forum and at 5'10'' 235lbs I think the "clydesdale/Athenas" is where I belong. After 25 years sitting on the couch I decided enough was enough and joined the local YMCA, this was last Feb. and since then I have started to get back in shape (of some sort). I have dropped from 290 to the present 235. To make a long story short I was in a kick boxing class that got canceled and the only class that I could take was a spinning class. I hated it to say the least, haven't been on a bike since I was a kid. I stuck it out as I hated being fat more than I hated being on the bike. That was months ago and I have to say I look forward to going to class now if fact I went out and bought a new road bike and find myself really enjoying myself. After finding and reading this forum I must say I am very encouraged and have signed up for a sprint tri on the 25th of this month! I've been training for the past six weeks pretty hard and not trying to set any records just trying to finish. I want to thank all of you for the great posts I have learned alot and hope to be able to contribute when I can.

55 lbs. in 6 months is great! With a bike, at least the scenery changes!
