    Fat guy on a little bike...

    Me taking a lap. I had the wife snap a pic to see if the bike was fitting me properly. It looks OK.

    I started my diet on Tuesday (more like Monday night) and I was at 224. I got on the scale this morning and I was at 219 1/2. Pretty good but I always lose weight real fast for the first couple days and then my body catches on and the weight loss slows down. 210 is my goal for this diet.

    ETA: Two observations. 1) I don't really perceive myself as a fatty until I see a picture of how wide I really am. It looks like I should just crush the bike to the ground. 2) My little big man is behind me in the pic riding his bicycle. He is such a big boy. : )

    Dude - you're not fat. That's just middle-aged manhood.

    Now that helmet on the other hand...

    You're not in bad shape at all. I would be wearing that bike like a T-back. You guys talking in the other thread ("Fat or combat fit") have inspired me to start. I'm 5'11" 240. I started on Tuesday with no carbs, already dropped 4 pounds. I fast walk 3 miles 3 days a week for months now.
    I know what you mean about pics though, even though I see myself in the mirror every day, I don't think of myself as fat or old, until I see a picture.

    Yah, I've started going grey over the last few years. It still freaks me out when I look in the mirror and see all the grey in my beard. I'm still an idiot teenager, but trapped in some old dude's body.

    Good for you! I decided to make a change when I hit 242lbs. I didn't like what I was seeing in the mirror. Keep it up.

    As an aside I'll tell you what has been working for me. I don't always set a weight loss goal for when I diet. I set a length of time for the diet. I usually can diet hard core for about 2 weeks and then I really start to struggle. I quit after two weeks and just try to eat well (but not diet) and exercise regularly. After 5 or 6 weeks of not dieting and letting my body adjust to the new weight I do another two weeks. So far this years I've lost about 25lbs like this and should lose another 8 to 10 on this diet.

    Good luck!

    Cool, maybe we can encourage each other through this "ordeal". I already feel like I'm walking around hungry all the time. My doctor seems to think if I could loose 50-60 I most likely would not be diabetic anymore...worth a try.

    You know...I was OK with most of it, until I went bald. Then I had to decide if I wanted to do a "Donald Trump" comb-over or shave my head, the only two choices other than looking like Bozo the clown. So I shaved my head...no gray now! Beard is still gray though.
    The good news is, when hunting season starts I walk the young guys into the ground. Carrying stands and ladders and dragging deer. I guess us "old dudes" are just tougher! LOL

    The helmet is kind of lame but here is the reason for it:

    A man tried to kill me this morning...

    It was a bit of a wake up call, and I am on the bike quite a bit.

    You make a very salient point, Timmeh.

    Folks rib me a little for wearing a full-face helmet on my Harley (in a state where there is no helmet law). I've only got one head, though.

    It looks like a good fit for you. If you went to a good/reputable shop, they wouldn't sell you an improperly fitted bike. As I said in a previous post, I raced road for years so, if I can help let me know.

    How tall are you Timmy?

    Don't feel too bad. The middle-aged-manhood as WHEC calls it is weighing far more heavily on this guy. 6'2" & 240lb - I could definitely lose about 50 of 'em.

    The first few pounds are always the easiest! Just don't brag about them to the wife...men burn calories more obviously than the fairer sex.


    P.S. I actually bought a nice bike about 5 years ago. But my hands were always going numb from the vibration & leaning on them (I guess.) I really should fill those tires up at start riding again!

    6ft even. The bike is a 56cm.


    It sounds like you may have a bike fitting problem. Try a shorter or higher stem and see what you think.

    Thanks Luis. I could use a better set of legs and some extra lungs. Could you send me some? : )

    LOL! Patience my friend. Get with a good group in your area. Keep your cadence between 80-100rpm's to save the knee joints and log the miles. Try to get 500-1000 miles of steady aerobic pace riding before getting into any intensity/anerobic type stuff. Here is an excellent place to get info Road Bike, Cycling Forums - Cycling Discussion Most of all have fun!

    Good luck
