A couple of years ago I was 227 - now, this am I was 184.5 lbs. I am 77yo. You can do it.So happy I found this thread! I qualify being labeled a Clyde. I am about 5' 7" and as of June15, weighed about 227. I started biking seriously when I bought a used road bike. Today I'm down to 212 and very happy with my progress.
I am 73 years old, had a kidney transplant almost ten years ago, and a knee replacement 18 months ago. My endurance was very poor but appears to be improving steadily but I lost two weeks due to cataract surgery last month.
I'm on a mission to get below 200 before Xmas which I think is reasonable.
I fear the Winter months when I won't be able to bike. Somehow, going out in subfreezing temp leaves me uh . . cold. And I hate the trainer! I may try rollers for the challenge.
I've cut back in my eating, not necessarily in what I'm eating but rather quantities. The challenge here is being a pasta and chocolate freak (not together) .
That's the story so far . . .
We have a bunch of folks 75+, and also about 25 ladies. The oldest rider (at over 6,000 miles per year) is 83.Where is this FB? I am interested @ 71
I am currently on a very high-powered, expensive drug that can cause weight loss, if not careful. So, I am trying to go in the opposite direction. Would like to stay at 180.Hah ... I have you beat by a Huge margin. I weighed myself after breakfast and managed 238. I've got you beat by almost 52 pounds---you lightweight.
