and several more to go!!!

I lost a couple of pounds this week and am looking forward to the upcoming week. I have a long way to go, but am willing to get where I will feel comfortable again.

I started at 285 and am looking to get to 255 and then reassess from there.

Is it worth joining the upgraded plan here? Need advice.

Thanks

Jeff

Hey CSL,

No big secret really. Yes I am doing it the healthy way. Exercise minimum of 30 minutes per day, biking. This burns about 550 calories per ride. Watching what I eat very carefully.

I am not obese by any means, but have a large frame. 285 is most I have weighed in about 15 years.

I try to keep my calorie intake around 2000 per day and fat gram consumption around 20-25 grams per day. These pounds are probably a lot of excess water. Long process ahead, so I will just keep at it.

Thanks for the note.

So... 550 Cals in just 30 mins? You must really be truckin' it! How do you ride? Stationary, street or mountain?

I maintain a speed of somewhere around 13.5 to 15 miles per hour and then plug that number in on the exercise tracker and it came up with the number of calories burned.

I have a 2007 hybrid Trek bike. Very lite and enjoyable to ride. I do all my riding on the road.

That's awesome. I have a 2008 Specialized Safire. It's probably considerably heavier than your street bike, but it is after all a mountain bike. Is the weather good for riding where you are? I live in the soggy Northwest lol so it's not exactly rider friendly this time of year.

I hate using the cal-burn calculators. I recently purchased a HR Monitor in mid October. I absolutely love it. It makes me feel like I'm getting a more accurate gauge on the quality of my workouts. But then again, so long as you're keeping a decent calorie deficit, you'll still lose regardless of whether you know how many calories your workouts burn or not.
Good for you!

I live in Florida, so the weather is pretty much good year around. I agree with the cal burning calculators, but one thing I try to remember is that the headwind has to count for something in burning calories. And if you have an additional headwind along with what you produce while riding, then I would think it has to even out. A lot of what I have read says that anyways.I have a monitor here as well and you are right in that it is a great tool to have.Have a Great Evening!!Jeff
