    I am currently 242#s. I want to get to 200# this year. My wife and I are taking a serious go at going Alcohol free and that should aid in my weight loss greatly. Good luck to all you guys.

    First started riding again in spring 2011.

    Went from about 285lbs down 225lbs to race in Sept. I generally stayed around 235lbs though.

    Right now I am back around 255lbs.

    I'm gonna shoot for a 35lb loss with a target weight around 220lbs.

    Looking to get down from 235 to 215lbs.

    Want to work more on my flexibility and range of movement too, equally as significant to me as the weight loss although less quantifiable.

    edit: Want to stop sugary drinks too and be more conscious of staying hydrated all the time.

    Fourstringsquire: kick ass! I dropped about 30 pounds this year and cycling is a great way to do it.

    One thing to note: at some point you will go through a spell where you look better and better and yet don't lose a pound: that's muscle building. Don't be discouraged!

    I am a 5'11" female. I consider myself a Clyde, because I always feel very large around other wimmenz. I hope it's ok if I join in here.

    To be 200 pounds. Sitting at 306, down from 317 on Jan 1.

    I have also started tracking everything with myfitnesspal. I think it might be the trick to keep me going.

    I'm in...I think writing it down and telling people gives one a sense of accountability. Currently at 250. would like to get down to 220 by june/july and 200-210 by end of the year. Been riding 10-12 miles on paved paths 3-4x a wk, and hitting my local trails on the weekends when I can.

    I would like to ride 2000 miles this year (have not gotten a ride in yet this year due to sickness, going to have some catching up to do!)

    I'm 6'1, 225. Would like to lose some weight but don't know how much. I suppose getting to 215 or 210 would be nice.
    Yeah I only carry cans cause I'm a weight weenie.

    I'm currently 36 years old and 6'1" at 275lbs I'd like to get down to 245lbs by June. I've started back riding this week around 30 to 40 miles a week and currently eating about 75% clean. I figure if I work on my diet (eating clean) and keep riding it will come off. I'm coming back from 240lbs last summer and a 6 month hiatus on the bike. I blew the hell up and I'm hungry for a change.

    I am active on Strava. It helps me gauge my place on my local trails (3 miles away from my house) and road rides. I'm also dieting to lose weight. I am a vegetarian, as well.

    So far, this month, I've ridden:

    20 Rides
    30 Hours
    316 Miles
    27,418ft. of Climbing
    31 Broken Personal Records

    I'm also in few top 10's on some of the local trails.

    All this is a result of prepping to race. I've raced before, but not with this sort of planning. I especially haven't lost this type of weight for racing - but it's a lot easier not to haul all those extra pounds up the hills.

    I never do well at races, even in Cat3, but I would recommend finding an end goal for riding, like a local race to train for. Even if you finish dead last, it's a great way to focus your efforts, and people are very supportive. It's really put things into focus for me and kept me disciplined. I'm a BMX freestyle rider, too... so as the weather gets nicer, I'm not sure how much racing I'm going to be in to. I can stay with the diet, but BMX'ing is just way more fun.

    I used to track my rides and such, but I never was this disciplined without an event to work up to. I used to be a competitive bodybuilder, and race prep feels very similar.

    Looks like I found my section here on MTBR. I'm 6 ft 5, 350 and I'm looking to get back down to around 240-250 as soon as I can. I figured I would get back into mountain biking but have no idea what will hold my fat self. I figure living in the NorCal mountains should give me enough places to ride.

    Ok I've been doing this a handful of years now...even to the point of having a page on sparkpeople. I haven't signed in there in a while however.

    So I'm about to the weight I usually hit a wall. 208 to 210 after a high of 225+.

    On January 10th or so I was at my heaviest ever at 230. Want to get down to 175. I'm 5/ten and a half.

    Decided to get serious again mid-January. So far I'm down around 20 at 210.5 this morning.

    Spinning 1 hour most days because superbowl sunday I broke my wrist out on the pro xc Mellow Johnnies course. Some days 2 hour Spinerval session. Usually 5 days a week.

    Trying to limit calories under 2,000 but I have not been counting like I had in my prior failed attempts.

    Eating the very occasional 2 to 3 slice pizza meal. What I have really cut down to near zero is bad snacks. And I think I've only had maybe 4 burgers since the beginning of the year. I've had lots of chicken and fish sandwiches though and salads. I'll have fresh fruit or the kind that comes in the vacuum sealed plastic cups or a yogurt.

    This time I will do it !

    SmokinBrock...Most bikes will hold your weight. At 230 no one at either LBS blinked at my choice of carbon and slightly lighter wheel upgrades for either my road or mtb that I bought this past winter.. Just don't get anything featherweight.... but the truly featherweight bikes it seems cost 8 grand or more !

    I'm 6ft 280 down from 320 a year ago when I started riding. Looking to be 255 by the end of may as a birthday present to myself. May even drop a few grand on full suspension bike. By the end of the year I want to be 240.

    One thing I have definitely learned about myself is that if I drop weight too quickly by radically changing my behavior/diet etc it becomes unsustainable and then I wreck my whole plan up. This forum is part of the reason I got on a bike in the first place and its awesome to see other people with impressive goals. I think mine is attainable but will definitely be challenging.

    I don't have a scale yet, probably will get one this weekend. Just started riding a bike Monday. I have been +/1 5lbs at 305 for about a year plus. I want to eventually drop 100, but my goal for this year is 50.

    I am 6 ft 2 and 290. I had peaked right around 300 and stopped drinking Ice tea. That was 10 pounds off in no time flat. My weight gain was caused by a serious shoulder injury. The last year has been nothing but sitting and therapy. My Dr. said it was ok to ride bike if I took it easy. So the LBS set me up with a 29er Trek superfly 100. Now if this weather would break! My goal is 250 or less by the end of Summer.

    I weighed in at 345 in November of 2011, dropped a few pounds. Doctor had a heart to heart talk this past November when I weighed in at 297 lbs. As of this morning I weighed in at 274 lbs. This was all done with dieting and the use of a treadmill. I'm looking forward to the warmer weather to start riding and burning calories on my bike.

    In December I was at 297 but as of this morning I'm 243. Started Tae Kwon Do in January and just living a healthier lifestyle. I track everything I eat and all exercises with My Fitness Pal (a great app by the way). I ride evenings between TKD workouts and weekends even if it's only a short ride around town.

    Over the years I tried many diets and failed. This time around I made my mind up that diets don't work, Living better does. I feel better than I have in years.

    My story:

    6'2" and 287 3 weeks ago. Moved to Santa Fe and bought my wife and I mountain bikes.
    We ride at least 5 days a week, 7 to 15 miles a day over rough trails near the ATSF railway. Long story short, I am down to 272 today. My wife has me on a 95% vegan diet and between the riding and diet, I haven t felt this good for years. My goal is to get to 220. A long way to go but we ll get there. My wife is hooked too on the riding.
