Looking on the outside what I feel on the inside

Ever since I left the military and my activity level dropped, I started gradually putting on weight. As I had always been reasonably active (even at my heaviest, I hiked the Inca Trail in Peru - including the 14,000 ft mountain passes) and had a reasonably healthy (low fat) diet, it had never really worried me. 12 years later, finally I am motivated to do something about it.

In the last couple of years, I have (re)discovered cycling. What I love about cycling is that you can go hard, or go long for hours, without battering your body as you would with the same amount of time running. I now regularly go on 120-130 mile rides with my cycling club. My current training objective is to improve my ability to go uphill - I want to complete the 7 Peaks challenge (climbing the roads to all 7 ski resorts in the state) by the end of the (southern) summer.
