    Yeah, 155 isn't that high. You should be able to get that under control through your diet. Have you given any consideration to any other forms of exercise? Weight lifting has proven to be a very effective tool for weight loss as it is a weight bearing activity, running rates as another excellent one.

    Exercise is great for many reasons, including fighting diabetes so keep it up. To control weight your biggest tool is controlling your diet. Kona, you easily need to loose 100 pounds, and relying on exercise for that isn't a smart plan.

    I think he was just curious how you're doing. Didn't you go in to see the doc this week?

    No, no Doc visit this week. I did call my diabetes Doctor about the eyesight. They confirmed that losing my eyesight is a rear thing, and happens only when blood sugar levels have been running high and uncontrolled for a long time. My eyesight has been OK these last few days, so I am making an appointment with an eye Doctor to get it taken care of. I've been feeling pretty good these last few days. Preparing now to go out for a ride.

    Thanks for the update Kona. Go out get some exercise and watch that diet. Take care.

    P.S. Those tires that you have will drift. It's normal. I have a set too.

    This Thread is Hilarious. Nine pages of arguing, comedy, and insults for a Bike that fits just fine. I'm no expert but anything smaller than that frame would look funny.

    Let's be honest...that frame looks kinda funny. Once he's successful at losing weight the scale will be more in balance but right now he looks like a circus bear on a kids bike.

    Better stand over clearance, easier to mount.dismount, easier to handle, geomentry feels better to ride, shorter top tube means better position for riding. 19 inch frame is overkill for me at 5'7".

    When you have lost 100 + lbs. your preferences for bike fit criteria are likely to be vastly different. Keep after it, it doesn't get easier but you get healthier.

    That's true. However keep in mind I have been over 200 most of my life and have always ridden a 17.5" bike.

    Look forward. Allow yourself to picture success. The biggest battles most people fight are with themselves, somehow we manage to be our own worst enemies. Victory is achieved day by day.

    I've always ridden 19" frames. My current bike is 21.5". I'm 6' tall. 21.5" sounds like it's too big but believe me it fits just perfect. Point being, different Geometry, and manufacturers plays a big role in frame size. One companies x size frame may not have the same fit as another companies x size frame. It looks like the bike fits judging by your picture. Keep riding it and don't stress over it, besides if you are just riding mostly pavement and gravel roads, a bit of a bigger bike shouldn't make too much difference.

    Only update I can give you is that I don't feel like riding at all. Been thinking about putting the bike in storage for Summer and taking up some other hobbie, like swimming.

    Kona, you are special.

    Just know that it isn't either swimming or biking. You could ride your bike to the pool, swim, and then return.

    Walking is truly where it is at. Do some searches for "N.E.A.T." (non-exercise activity thermogenesis). It addresses the fallacy of the nearly impossible task of exercising yourself fit.

    Seriously, try walking. I actually don't get as much exercise as I would like but I walk every day and I believe that it has helped me to keep weight down. Riding can be part of a healthy lifestyle but you probably won't be doing riding regularly enough to get your weight to were you want it to be.

    Sorry, I got distracted by Az. Kona, you want to quit biking because it takes too much time???

    You know, we all have a gazillion things we DON'T WANT TO DO but we do them because that's what you do when you're a grown up. I hate doing the dishes but I do them. I hate working but I do it. Biking for exercise is a real *****. Exercising to lose weight is an even bigger *****. I totally get that but your life depends on it. So quit your yapping and get moving, big guy.

    We all have doubts...wouldn't hurt you to work it out yourself without typing it every now and then....

    Dont limit your self to one specific thing. With fitness, consistency is far more important than intensity. Does not matter what you do, do SOMETHING every day.

    I wake up at 4:45am every day. I ride my bike, surf, or go to the gym. Every day. I am done before my family even wakes up. I have time for this because i MADE time for it. I have always been in decent shape and active, yet in this year alone i have dropped 50lbs and am ripped, showing abs, and under 200lbs for the first time since HS. I did not accomplish this overnight, it was one day at a time.

    Like many have said, if something is important, you make the time. So I made some time to ride. Got in 9.4 miles this morning.
