My recent posts have been about biking. I’m still biking, but that’s not what this post is about.
When I first started this endeavor, I was in such poor condition, that almost any physical exercise was nearly impossible for me. So, I started with diet, and simple exercises. The diet was key. I tracked everything I ate, and counted every calorie. Once I had gotten into better eating habits, I quit keeping track. I was happy, at that point, my weight loss had progressed quite nicely.
However, it did begin to slow down, and I’ve been hovering just above 260 lbs for too long now. This is in spite of all the extra exercise I get now. I realize that I’ve been eating poorly again.
Here is monthly average weight from November (first full month since I started) through May:
It’s not horrible. I’m rather happy with the progress in the first few months, but talk about diminishing returns!
I need to focus on my diet again. I’m going to continue to work on lengthening the bicycle portion of my commute (I’ve found a place 6 miles out to park).
