    Makes sense, thanks. Successful health management requires being an amateur dietician as well.

    Guys, I have been struggling with my weight for my whole life. September of 2010 I decided to get serious. I rode my bike every day and eventually raced in the Iceman Cometh (Iceman Cometh Challenge Bicycle Race) in Traverse City Michigan. The problem is that I only lost 42 pounds in a year. I gained some back last December. I tried so many different types of diets and counting calories. Finally I saw the movie Forks Over Knives and read two books. Eat To Live by Joel Fuhrman and Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell Esselstyn a cardiologist at the Cleveland Clinic. I am finally starting to see weight loss results. Just some food for thought if any one if frustrated like I was. My site is My Road To Iceman Cometh

    this is so inspiring

    Everyone on here has really inspired me to get my bike working again and hit the trails. I am at 360 lb (the heaviest I have ever been) and I know it will be a long road but I love riding and want to eventually compete in races and events. I know this is a place I can come to get motivation and awesome advice. Thanks toall

The first 80 were easy, the last 20 have been hard. Haven't smoked since March 2010.
    Well done! Keep it up!

    Nothing impressive here, but I was pushing 240 coming out of college and through biking and running, I got myself down to 195. I'm creeping back up into the 220 range so I'm trying to get back out and running more.

    Some friends and I hit Brown County last summer. There is some great riding out there!

    Great job. I quit drinking when I was about 27 and it's been 23 years now almost drink-free.

    Now I need to work against stuffing..I used to be a trim 165 to 175 range all the time and any more I'm 220 and up.

    I too have been on such a journey. Unfortunately I don't have a good before pic so that is something I'll need to hunt up from family or somewhere.

    The pics below are before - Approx Nov '07, ~200kg (440lb). I'm the big white guy in the back
    After - Dec '11 ~100kg (220 lb)

    I'm 192 cm (6'4") and peaked about 225 kg (500lb) in Jan '10

    I gave up drinking, which used to be an average 100 cans of beer a week, and everything followed from there. Drinking was always my problem, not just in amount, but also because it led to binge eating and no exercise. At 500 lbs I couldn't walk more than about 100 meters at a time and was basically an invalid. I'm 40 yrs old, BTW.

    Anyway, gave up drinking, started losing about 10lbs a month. After 3 or 4 months I started tightening up my eating, back to about 2000 Cal a day, and started walking a few miles a day. The next 6 months or so I lost about 10kg (~20 lb) a month.

    Once I was down to about 160 kg (350lb) I started cycling. A lot. First it was 100~200kms a week, but that increased to a steady 400kms a week for 2011.

    Anyway, the weight loss tapered off as I approached my final weight of 100kg (220 lbs). So I lost about 125 kg (280 lb) over 18 months, and have been about 100kg for the last 6 months.

    Main reason I wanted to lose weight was to get back into motorcycling - I dreamed of racing. So I started riding dirt bikes, and then started race track riding again. I bought a GSXR1000 race bike and started road racing, having completed a few race meetings in late 2011. 2012 is shaping up to be a decent season of racing :up:

    The cycling was an added bonus. I loved it when I was younger, thought I'd never do it again. But I love it. And now MTB riding. Been getting into it and I love it. Just bought an Anthem X29 and have been hitting the trails. Plan is to try a few XC races later this year. Trailing hard, riding hard, got a good 18months of solid base training behind me now

    Still yet to have a drink too. I realized already when I was 30 that drinking was the problem and had to stop. Took me 10 years to stop, but now it is done. Good willing I'll never drink again. Luckily my liver still functions OK

    I was over 300 when I got on a bike last summer. I hit 260 over the winter and am finally flirting with sub 250. Now if I could just keep from crashing so I stop losing weight in my wallet also

I am proud for you...I myself am dealing with diabetes, although it seems my numbers are doing very well as I am not really taking my meds and my sugar is staying in the normal range. I did a local race two years ago and I am training to do it again this year with the goal of beating my time!!! Keep up the great work...I am going to go and check out your blog now!!!

    Me in 2003 at 6'1~230Lbs. During this time i got hooked on World Of Warcraft and was pretty much a couch potato. Went up to 267lbs before i was diagnosed with Cancer. Things had to change.



    Fast forward to current. I started mountain biking a year ago, quit WoW and am now at a comfy 6'3 ~200lbs & age 25. Cancer free!





    No mascots were harmed in the shooting of said first photo.

    Before 360lbs After 279lbs 5'10"



    2.5 yrs ago I had to have some stomach surgery, at that time I was told about how I was at risk for a lot of health problems, already having high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and borderline hi cholesterol....so I'm down about 70lbs, and have been for a little while. I need to keep going and would love to find some riders in the se Michigan area Romeo, Washington, Shelby. Or neighboring cities....I also started a thread about looking for riding friend(s)..
    I would also love to ride a fat bike, but holy moly those are expensive bikes...

    Good job guys and gals! This has got me in the right spot, to finish what I started 5 years ago.... I started around 400 or so, I couldn't even walk up stairs without stopping half way up! I cut pop out, and watching what I was eating... I started out fast losing weight, and right around 320 I couldn't get to my 1st goal of 300 pounds! ( I've had some set backs also) broken knee, hurt knee, and a bike wreck. I've kept the weight off. I've started riding my bike about a year ago! Started racing this year with my son.

    Now I'm down to 296 working on 220 or 200...Doctor wants me a 183... With riding trails and bmx cardio. My son also pushes me when I don't want to do it.... Thanks guys

    Post your BEFORE & AFTER success story photo's

    I came across a picture of me from 2010, the year I started riding, and I thought it would be neat to try to re-create the photo to see the difference. I have no idea what I weighed back then. I do know that in the middle of February of this year, I weight almost 400 pounds. I was also diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic with thyroid problems in early March. To date, I am down almost 45 pounds...I feel much better and my blood glucose numbers are much, much better!!! Getting involved in mountain biking is the best thing that has happened to me...it also helped me quit smoking over two years ago!!! I would like to say this is my "after" picture, but I am not done yet!!!

    Inspired.
    I started riding my bike to work to loose weight and was embarrassed being the big guy pulling over to catch his breath on the slow (relatively easy) climb home. Not only have I shed a bunch of weight in the last 4 months but I feel much better and even crave things like (gasp) vegetables! Possibly just as important, after a stress filled shi*ty day at work, the stress just lifts away and doesn't seem important when there is longer detour up a bigger climb to a short trail through a city park I can hit on the way home. The wife tells me I'm much better to be around on weekdays now. I'm really inspired by all your stories.

    If you ride a SS like your usernames suggests that makes it all the more impressive.

    I am in the same boat as you, grew a half inch this year to 6'3, 1/2...Am right at 201 at the moment.

    Keep it up.

    amazing Clay! Your after picture looks like your much younger son!

    Hey guys,

    First post here but have read every thread

    Use to be a very active child, always playing outdoors especially riding my bike. Did a staggered ride from the Grampians to Canberra along the great dividing range in Australia doing a week at a time. Then the years ticked by and become less active and slowly accumulated the weight. But it all went downhill like one of the other members when i became addicted to World of Warcraft. I ballooned to 374lb in May of 2009 at 6ft1. It was at that time that i left Australia and traveled around europe for 2 years before moving to Whistler, BC. It was while i was in Whistler that i decided that i need to change my lifestyle and actively reduce my weight. I was originally jogging and had a whole new diet (no soda, no sweets, no takeout), but as you can imagine with that weight and jogging (did manage to get 15min off my PB for 5km) the knees began to feel the pain and decided that it was time to jump back on the bike!

    A friend of mine was kind enough to loan me her 3rd bike and have been using that for 2 months now. I am now down to 286lb and have lost 14in off my waist. Still got a long way to go but as a reward will be buying my self a bike for the start of next summer so that i can access more aggressive terrain

    Cycling passion, An epic vacation, 18 months and a strong commitment

    I am not a writer but I would like to tell my story of my waking up to some realities of my life.

    I have suffered from justifying and rationalizing many things in my life in order to not truly deal with them. One of these things is my weight. I started to get chubby in my early teens and was 200 lbs by the time I was 17. I have always thought I looked fat in the mirror but I was told by many people that I wasn't fat and didn't look fat. I spent roughly the next 35 years weighing between 215 and 238 lbs on a 6ft frame knowing I was overweight and being less healthy than I should have been. I had truly accepted the extra weight as okay and just a part of who I was.

    For many years my wife and I have dreamed, imagined and talked about taking a vacation that would involve seeing many great national treasures like the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, etc. and of course go ride some of the great mtb locations along the way. Well, the planets finally aligned for us around spring 2011 so that we both were able to get the time off from work necessary and have the extra funds available to put the epic vacation plans into place. So, in late May 2011 we began to seriously put everything together like combining some awesome mtb riding spots with visiting National parks, logistics, reservations and the like. Once most of the major trip plans were made, I found myself a few weeks later thinking about how this 51 y/o, 233 lb, mostly FL riding, weekend warrior was going to receive an ugly beatdown once I actually have to ride real western mountains for the first time (I've read the accounts of many others who've done the same...not pretty).

    I did have a decent level of fitness as my wife and I started riding bikes 3 to 4 days a week for over a decade earlier. The problem was I had also adjusted my calories upward to compensate for the extra exercise. As of the second week of June 2011, I started on a year long effort to get in really good shape for the big vacation. I knew I would lose some weight but the real focus was on going to be on fitness. I began to ride my bike(s) almost every day and for longer rides than ever before. By years end, I had pedaled almost 5500 miles and had lost appx. 20 lbs and was seeing big gains in strength and endurance. On January 1 2012, I weighed 212 lbs and was riding every day, feeling great and on my way to reaching the goal. Fast forward to May 26 2012, the day we left on vacation, I weighed 184 lbs and I had ridden over 4000 miles up to that point in the year and went on to have the awesome vacation (I linked the vlog my wife made of the trip at the bottom of this post) I hoped for and the fitness to match. Ironically, I rode less in those 22 days than I had at any point of the year and came back home only to realize that I still had the same interest in riding everyday as I had before the trip. I kept up with the riding all through the summer and fall and continued to get fitter and lighter.

    Well, the year is now over and I have really found out some things about myself. I found that for the first time in my life, I believed in what I wanted and I made the commitment to do what was necessary to see it through. I have pedaled 3 bikes a total of 10,600 miles in appx. 690 hrs. averaging 29.04 miles/1.91 hrs per day. I rode 350 days this year. Weight loss for 2012 was 48 lbs and total weight loss for the 18 months was 70 lbs. I also found out that I have much more mental toughness/ability to suffer than I thought previously. This fall I signed up for, completed and enjoyed my first two century road rides.

    I never set out to lose weight and I think that is why I succeeded. It was only after I committed to my fitness goals that I started to see and appreciate the weight loss. At some point I felt invested in all the work and began to make significant changes in what, when and how much I was eating. I have maintained my weight under 170 lbs for 2 months now and I am hopeful but not unrealistic about my odds of keeping the pounds off in the future. People who have known me for a long time think I look bad now, like I have an illness (one friend actually said I look like I have aids). Kind of funny how people think you look healthier when you are fat. The other funny thing is that I was always hot when I was fat and now I go around cold all the time.

    I share my story in hopes that it will help someone realize that they can be successful even if you have failed many times before. Staying committed to the goal was the key. I also have to say a huge THANK YOU to my wife, family and everyone else who put up with me and all the crazy hours I spent doing this very selfish thing. Also, Thank you to the MTBR members who have helped me with questions and concerns that I have had through out the year.

    2012 miles per bike:
    Road bike = 8016 miles
    Rigid 29er SS = 1389 miles
    F/S mtb = 1195 miles

    ^ well done sir!!!

    Feels rather vanilla to post my story after that.

    6'2" 252 this time last year, down to around 215-220 now. 205 is abs showing with my build, so 215 is a comfortable weight for me.

    Just got promoted to a desk job. Have a sneaking suspicion maintaining this weight may be harder than loosing the weight last year was.

    this is great inspiration !!! Im 6'4" 300lbs and I'd love to lose 50+ lbs but i never stick to my routine. I get bored very easily and usually go back down the wrong path. As much as i love to go out and ride i always find an excuse not to do it ??? Im very curious as to what you Clydes eat before or after a good ride. Im usually to exhausted when i come back to cook anything so therefore i eat garbage. So what do you guys eat ??????

    Awesome stories folks. Great motivation.
    I am restoring/updating my 1996 GF Paragon. Should be done soon and training starts.
    I'm 6'1" 267. My goal is to get down to at least 210 or lower by December 2013.
    When training starts I'll have the wifey take a before pic (wide lens of course haha) and after.
