I personally think that you are on the right track. yeah u might be struggling, but that doesnt make you any less of a rider! dont 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 u in the future (its always up to you) and when u do that, you'll be happier and healthier!

peace to the world

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.
