Bitinsane, That's how my father would control his weight. He had to wear custom made suits as off the shelf didn't fit. He was tall and just right but if he put on 10lbs his suits didn't fit so well so he'd cut back a little on portions and after a few weeks those extra pounds would be gone. The summer he built our cottage he put on 35 lbs and discovered his suits were too big.

I used my fitness pal . Com. They gave me my calorie limits based on my activity level, height, and weight. I don't have much of a sweet tooth except for that time of the month, but I could eat sweets anytime if I wanted. All I did was tweak what calories went where through out the day.

Yea I actually started running again and have gained a few pounds, but I'm pretty sure its muscle. I'm not worried, everything still fits the same

Congrats! That is awesome! I've also been on a weight loss journey since I started riding again and I know it's hard work but it can be done and it's totally worth it if it means you can ride better & longer.
