    Weight Gain Roll Call!!!

    Oh well....

    It's November 14th, and I tipped the scales at 169 this morning.

    My lowest racing weight of the season was 162 which I held for a few weeks in July-August. So at 5'10", I'm seven pounds up.

    Any one else gained any weight??? Damn, Thanksgiving and Christmas isn't even here yet!!

    Negatory here, still hovering around 145. Just came off a high-volume week though, so we'll see what happens this week (rest time).

    I've added about 5 lbs since the end of the season back in early Sept. It's a normal fluctuation...no big deal. Oct/Nov is the time to indulge in the garbage you can't during training and of course racing season.

    Back to my McDonald's coupons now...

    yep

    I'm up 7 pounds, and I am still riding the trainer 4-5 hours a week.

    I guess it is rice cakes and an apple for lunch

    Up a little bit...but it' s mostly from lifting. I start running again tomorrow so it'll come off pretty quick.

    keeping warm

    i am up about my normal winter 5. it really helps keep me warm. i live in a very cold area of canada, and i think your body just knows it will need the fat (that is what i tell myself at least).

    hockey + back bacon + beer = off season training in canada eh!

    I can't put on weight, I can't lose it either. I have been a steady 135 5'11" since I was 13. I wish I had some sort of metabolism slower so I could put some weight on from lifting in the winter.

    Hah I lost 5lbs since I stopped racing. I blame the early gym mornings and working more. I am getting back into the swing of things though and hope to gain it back but it isnt a huge concern of mine as long as I'm healthy. I'm a little over 5'9" and 130lbs.

    I've put on a couple of pounds I think, nothing much though, I haven't really stopped pedalling, just lowered the intensity and hours i'm putting in. In the gym quite a bit at the moment so bound to put on a bit of muscle weight.

    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead!

    Guys, don't worry. I'm 42 years old, 5'10", 225lbs and losing. I ride my trainer 30-60 minutes a day for now and will up that once my legs and ass can handle more time. 100 situps a day on a excercise ball and various upper body workouts for strength and toning. I once was a young guy but as you get older it is much harder to get the weight off. I cycled for MANY years and then about 3 years ago I hurt my back and took a 3rd shift job which basically took more control of my time and life by working 6 nights a week. To hell with that life.

    I plan to start my on business after the new year and start riding more, and more, and more.
    Hopefully I will be down in the range of 180-190 lbs sometime in early spring. Eat well but EAT SMART!!!!!!!.

    I just had the conversation with my coach yesterday. he asked me how my weight was going. I told him i haven't weighed myself in 2 weeks. he politely reminded me that i need to lose 10 more pounds and this is the time to do it before he ramps up my training program after the 1rst of the year and then i am really going to need to eat.. damnit, why couldn't i have the perfect metabolism like some people. especially those people who do nothing but smoke and eat donuts all day and never pack on a pound..

    I am up 3-4lbs from the 165lbs I had during the summer (I am 5'6" and 45 years old). I struggle on a daily basis to stay away from food. But I still ride quite a lot, since we have very mild temps around here. This week I have 3 hours on the trainer and 2 hours on the trails today. Tomorrow should be another 2 hours on the trails.

    My metabolism just isn't what it used to be, so despite all the exercises I still need to watch my food intake. DAMN!

    From the end of the season I'm down two pounds, but my weight has been like a yoyo the last couple of weeks. To the tune of about a 7 pound variance...time to look at the food log again.

    It's a constant battle for me but jogging seems to be keeping the fat away. I ran 12.5 km yesterday and feel skinier already. I need to drop another 10-15 lbs. to be in race trim next spring. It's just mind over fatter.

    Pretty minimal for me this year. Early race season I was 163-164. Spent most of the season around 165-166. Right now I'm sitting at 168.

    I've been known to get up around 180 in the offseason. Staying out of the weight room seems to have helped with that.

    down about 7 lbs since race season

    even after the turkey, and stuffing, and sweet potatoes, and mashed white potatoes, and brussel sprouts, and gravy, and pecan pie, and apple pie, and....



    i call it the break-up abs-tinence diet. introduce a whole mess-load of stress into your life, ditch the SO, discover loads of time to ride and go to the gym. and hey, look at those great abs!

    the even better news is i feel great on the bike. better, in fact, than i have in at least a year. now if i can only keep this up through next race season.

    Some of you people seriously cheese me off...5'8" at 195 here. Sad part is that I actually enjoy climbing and I'm fairly good at it. If I ever lose 30 pounds you better recognize.

    I've been riding less because it's really freaking cold but started a new job a few months ago where there's a lot of physical work... it's akin to spending 8 hours a day in a gym lifting weights.

    I thouhgt I was in pretty great shape but the body hasn't been this ripped in many years (I'm 41) and at last check I'd gained 6 pounds of muscle.

    This is a good thing as I have had a long standing goal to put on some weight and the only way I can do this is eat for three and lift huge amounts of weight.

    Hanging steady at 145, so up about 2 lbs from my race weight. Still, I've probably gained a lb or two of fat and lost some muscle. Time to hit the gym I guess.

    Still big swings was 185 lbs down to 176 lbs after a "good weekend" back up to 180lbs for the next weekend.

    I have been riding plus 50 km with no nourishment, basically to bonk, and then keep going for half and hour as an experiment. Takes a week to come back.

    I just got one of those scales that tell you water, fat, muscle and bone. Very interesting, while difficult to get a proper reading, when you do it trends very well with what is going on.

    I think it was Pahern who suggested that you could train your liver, by doing the above, I guess I am trying to find out.

    Years ago, I used to XC ski all day with maybe one or two chocolate bars, I would like to get back there, (age won't let me).

    What I want is endurance, at moderate speed like 8 hours worth.

    I used to bonk about 1:45, now its more like 2:10.

    158lb just last week(5'-11.5" tall), being my usual race weight. I was 164lb this morning. The humanity... Maybe "rt" has something. As its indeed the new girlfriend me thinks. I had no less then 3 full-on T-day meals, plus way too many leftovers, some still to eat. And, I rode a fair amt everyday from Thurs thru Sunday. Still gained.

    happiness makes you fat. (of course, "fat" is a relative term since anyone who is 164 @ almost 6' is hardly fat by any measure except skinny cyclist standard).

    seriously, i'm always heavier when in a relationship. maybe eating for two or something like that.

    Yeah - that's the ultimate cyclist tan.

    Weighed myself this morning. Seems I left 2lbs somewhere in Canyonlands. Maybe that's the missing skin.

    I'm similar, I've been 79 Kilo's (thats uh 174 pounds in ye olde world measurements(?)) from 20 onwards, I think I have a fast metabolism I eat lots and I just don't fluctuate. When I was in my twentys I got self-concious about being skinny and really chowed out big time for months I put on about 1 Kilo. However now I have been going to the gym for the last 6 months and doing weights and I have put three Kilo's on.

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one who didn't know who that was.

    At any rate, looks like I'm up to 180 lbs which is about 10lbs more than I weighed back mid summer. Gotta nip this in the bud and get rid of that 10lbs LOL because it could easily turn to 20 then 30 mighty quick, especially around Christmas. Yikes!

    there's good and therte's bad

    The good news: I lost 30 lbs since my last race.

    The bad news: That race was in August shortly before my appendix burst, leaving me in the hospital for a week and a whole lot of muscle down.

    The worse news: After 2 months of not gaining any of it back, I finally went to the doctor, and found out I seem to by hyperthyroidic, which means (among other things) my metabolism is totally out of control, like 95 bpm resting heart rate. 7 meals a day with no weight gain seems great, but it just ends up being boring trying to shovel all that food down. And you don't build muscle.

    Fortunately, after 2 weeks on the drugs, I have gained 6 pounds back (out of an optimal 18-20, I think), and I went on my first real ride this weekend, where I kept up with a bunch of the local triathlon geeks.

    But it sure wiped out cyclocross season.

    I recommend only one major health issue at a time. It's less confusing.

    hate when I stick stuff in a thread in the wrong place:
    124 lbs in August when I got home from the Trans Rockies.
    135.6 this morning.
    I like to start the new year off with easily definable goals.

    hehe. i was trying to figure out what about my lack of wicking skin was 'wrong place, wrong time'.

    it's good to have clear goals.

    That's about as low as I go. It shows up around 4% body fat when I can get down that low. Last year I let things go quite a bit, and I got up to 142lbs before I turned it around. Stupid holidays.

    Jeez, I guess I need to get a scale, the last one I bought was to see what my new (in 92) bike weighed. It's been gone for years. I know I'm still 6 feet tall, I think I'm around 160-165 lbs.
    I just try to ride more than I eat...

    If you're much over 5'2", that's seriously skinny.

    I actually weighed in at 142 after the last race I did this season. My target, at 6'0" is 144, which I stayed within a pound or two of most of this year. Currently I'm sitting at 148 and bet I'll be 150+/- on January 2nd.
