This Is a Weight Loss Blog?

I’ve written more about bicycling here than any other topic.  I’ve never been much of a writer, so it’s possible I’ve written more about bicycling than any other topic since I could write.

I haven’t been talking much about weight recently.  I don’t have much to write about.  I haven’t been controlling my diet.  I haven’t been weighing regularly.  I haven’t been losing (or gaining) weight.  My weigh has been steady at just above 220 lbs.  That’s quite a bit above my goal weight of 175.

I started this adventure at nearly 300 lbs and very unfit.  I had a sedentary lifestyle.  I was probably on the fast-track to a heart attack.

I was able to bring my weight under 200 lbs for a while.  I also got much more fit.  That took a lot of effort and self-control.  I still intend to work at that, I’m not giving up my goal weight yet.

One thing has changed.  My bicycle-centric lifestyle means I can maintain a weight around 220 lbs without much effort.  I drink beer and eat pizza with few limits.  I don’t eat fast food or drink soda, but that’s because I don’t enjoy those things.  Parting with them wasn’t difficult.

Maybe I’m just making excuses for not putting the effort into losing more weight.  I want to do some more bike touring this year.  I want to have more free time away from work and family obligations, but I’m not sure how to pull that one off.

  1. Beer, pizza, exercise that doesn’t suck, & a steady 220…doesn’t sound so bad to me. I say enjoy this awesome lifestyle you got going and screw the scale!

  2. Rusty,

    You’re right, it’s not bad. On the other hand, I really need to lose some more weight. The extra I’m carrying is belly fat, which is an unhealthy place to carry it.
