I’ve officially lost 40 pounds since I’ve started this Tumblr. I started at 324 pounds and I’m now down to 284 pounds. You might think this is sad, but this is the best shape I’ve been in my adult life. I PROMISE I will be posting photos soon!
However, the majority of the weight loss has come after I started cycling. I weighed 317 pounds when I started cycling, so I suppose that’s a loss of 33 pounds.
Contrary to what many say, it hasn’t actually been that difficult. I eat foods that are good, but also good for me. It is, however, pretty difficult not to eat bad things, although once or twice I have. I don’t think of it as a big deal when I do. I just think of it as deserving it for working hard.
I ride around ten miles every day, except for days when it isn’t possible. I’ve missed 4 days in July. I missed the 3rd and 4th of July for celebration and I missed a couple of other days because of rain.
To me, this is easy. It’s just a true change in lifestyle. It is making easier decisions about food and finding a workout that works. I’ve seen progress in nearly everything about cycling: the length of time I can cycle, my speed, and my distance.
I’m on MapMyRide and MyFitnessPal, so if you’d like to add me on either, just send me a message and I’ll share my info!
