    I personally think that you are on the right track. Yeah you might be struggling, but that doesnt make you any less of a rider! Don't give up! Trust me, I used to weigh much more!!! And I know how painful it is. I have just one piece of advice: picture your future as a fit rider, think about everything good that may come to you in the future (its always up to you) and when you do that, you'll be happier and healthier!

    Peace to the world

    Andy :)

    Myhorsesonador and everyone else. I am not overweight but what I will tell you is what I learned when in a body building program. It's not your weight that matters, it's your size. Throw out the scales and get a fabric tape measure and take lots of measurements and do this weekly, keeping a log. The first 10 lbs you lose is water, then the body begins to catabolize muscle. You need to prevent that with exercise. Instead of eating a meal in one sitting, set part of it aside for later so that you eat 5 times a day. A low calorie diet sends a signal to the body that there's a food shortage so your metabolism slows down. But by eating more often this can often be averted. To rev up the metabolism lift weights - that's two 48 ounce cans of tomato juice for starters. The internet has exercizes to help tone. When body building, 40 min. 5 days week I could shove down 4000 calories and not gain a lick. Why I chose 5 days as the muscles need a rest and I didn't feel guilty if I missed a day, just never two in a row. I often did 20 min cardio (ex bike) and 20 of weights sometimes focusing on my legs, other times upper body.
