Got on the scale yesterday and came to the realization that diet alone isn't doing it anymore. Went from +270 in 2016 down to about 210 maybe all in that year, I can't remember, but we're back up into the 230's and with summer around the corner.... eeks!

I still ride, and have gotten leaps and bounds faster, but I find I've got to ride stupid miles at crazy levels to lose weight, part of that is I eat bad because I ride, and I ride because I eat bad, but it's time to reign it back in.

Hopefully this post will be my motivator to get it going. Busy with work is an understatement, but with my wife starting a bootcamp fitness thing in the morning, and noticing how slow this section has gotten, maybe I can get something positive going again.

We'll check back in a week.

Intermittent fasting...pick 8 hours in the day to eat, then stop until 16 hours has past, then go another 8.

Squat thrusts, over and over, then repeat.

Ice baths will burn fat since your internal thermostat will kick into overdrive to heat the body. If you don't do ice, just cold water will do.

Hard to do, but you can do it...cut out most sugar!

When it comes to your big meals, eat slower and trim fats, and I do not mean "the fat off meats." Cut out the extras or cut those in half.

...Continue riding!

No offense, but I see more fat cyclist than anything. There is this thought process that they can "cab up" and eat whatever because they ride .

Just doesn't work. I ride 100ish miles per week and running 25ish miles per week. Still eat chicken, fish and veggies for the most part.

Now, I have to cut back somewhere or add in more calories as I can't quit losing weight. I am down to 153. Goal weight was 158.

None taken here, I wouldn't say I'm fat, I'm just heavier than I look. People were thinking all kinds of thoughts when I was down below 210, most of the time if I tell someone my weight they don't believe it. I agree with you though on that thought process, it's not just fat cyclist (they haven't found the balance) I ride with a bunch of cat 3 or better guys and everyone has it, beer, junk food, whatever..

Nothing like summer time to rejuvenate your commitment to fitness! Nicer weather and being outside more are great motivators. Plus you'll beat the crowd that starts at New Years by a good couple months! grin

I almost joined a gym in Plano off Plano Pkwy a few months back. My friend Phyllis did. The owner is fat, way fat, I'd say a few pounds from obese, 5'7", 45 or so and about 280 is my guess.

He is also a street bike-rider. I street right myself, but I'm much more of a dirt-trail rider.

He's training for the Hotter Than Hell ride.

He did a 65 mile ride last weekend, and on Monday, he showed up at the 5:30 am class that Phyllis attends. He told the class about his ride, and that when he finally finished, paramedics were waiting for him.
The other riders in front of him told officials to be ready. He was on IVs and in an ambulance for a while, but released. That was on Sunday.

Monday, after the 5:30 am class, he cancelled the rest and went home. His body was still suffering.

Bottom line, if the legs have strength, a street rider can still ride, but that does not mean he is healthy. We all know when we need to eat better, look better and feel better. It's not hard.

...just do it.

...!

Carbohydrates is your biggest enemy ! No carb diet will keep everything from turning into sugar that not only is a fat factor but fights against diabetes. I been doing physical therapy for couple months not and have a few more to go then Iíll be getting more fit .

Gotta admit this inspired me to get back at it after posting. I can definitely notice the different, more in how I feel than look at this point, but it's something. Been sleeping like a baby too!
