This past year I went from 245 down to 200 at one point. A lot of that was from road riding but I also logged many miles in the mountains as well as did 4 races. My cycling improved a lot as well as many other things, my overall health. This winter though I got lazy and went back up to 220. I have been hovering there for a while now but all that is going to change. I am wanting to get to 195 this year. Unfortunately I will have many short military deployments over this riding season and will miss all but one of the races in my area. It will be a challenge!
I personally started tracking my caloric intake and burn towards the end of 2011 and have set up a personal goal.
I thought that it might add a little accountability and a little extra motivation if we all stated our goals and then posted our weight every week here to this thread.
If you don’t want to participate in this thread, that’s totally cool. If you only want to post certain information, that’s totally fine: Only post whatever information you feel comfortable sharing, we don’t want to try to make anyone feel bad here! 😀
Good job Galaxy! I’m a big guy also, 6’4" with to much weight. It about killed me, but I quit drinking beer, and dropped a bunch of weight right away! My drink of choice now is vodka and iced tea. Not as good as beer, but does pack a decent tasting punch when you need it!
