Welcome back to cycling! Hope you find it just as rewarding as it was prior to hanging it up for a bit. Many find that everything would still fit, but fear the ride may not be able to handle it.
I also think you'll find that you're in the right place for the encouragement.

Actually, my husband and I signed up at Lifetime Fitness. I plan to do stationary bike and treadmill to start off with. I have to slowly build up my stamina here and hopefully when the weather breaks can get my touring bike out for a ride until I can get on my road bike again.
Thanks so much for the encouragement!
i remember the first time i got back on my bike after having two kids. i felt so free, i felt like i was back to being me.
there are so many reasons to get back on the bike, physical a psychological. its tough when you have young kids/family-you can forget yourself and everything is about someone else.
i would recommend getting to the gym and working on the stepper and doing some stationary bike riding until the weather breaks.even if its 1-2x per week. start to build your stamina and toughen your butt(so your first ride doesnt hurt so much). then once the weather breaks get out and go for that ride. you will feel so much more in control.
Welcome back to cycling. I can't blame mine on the kids, they are 24 and 26.

Hi WICKEDANNABELLA and welcome to the team!
I can sure identify with the problem. That's what is so great about Spark People... you will get plenty of encouragement and support from other members who have had similar problems.

I am a former Road cyclist who had a baby and went DOWNHILL and now my lovely road bike sits on the hooks in the garage instead of under my butt on the road. I used to ride 100+ miles per week, sometimes more if I did a club ride on the weekend.
So here I am, bound and determined that my fat you know what will fit on that skinny saddle again!
I could use all the encouragement I can get!
Thanks for listening and feel free to visit my page and leave any comments. Oh, and there's a picture of a more svelte me with my Lemond. :)
