I've been with Spark for 2 months and have lost 16 pounds. Last summer I started biking with DH (a huge bike fan). Then I bike commuted to work 4 days a week (4 miles one way). Ended by gaining weight because I wasn't watching what I ate. So in January while searching online for a calorie counter, I found Spark. I'm looking forward to April when I'll start bike commuting to work again. I live in Michigan and I don't bike in the winter (unlike the DH). I'm hoping this will help with the weight loss and I enjoy the rides, too.
Welcome to the team, glad you joined us. DH dragged me kicking and screaming into the cycling world. I didn't want to do it, I wasn't going to do it. Now I plan my week around the weather so I can get my rides in. I prefer less than 70 mile rides, but that may change.
One Day at a Time: 1) 10,000 steps daily 2) fruit & vegie at every meal and log 3) aerobic or strength train every day 4) 7 hours sleep daily 5) check in with SP daily
My resolutions for Nov are 1) track nutrition daily 2) 30 min of exercise daily 3) finish cleaning sewing room
Hi Everyone, I am new to the team, but not to SparkPeople. I started in 2006, lost 66 pounds. I am back since Feb 15th, I have lost 10 lbs. I love road biking! I rode my 10,000th mile last summer since 2005. I was in Biking Across Kansas in 2007. Love the long rides. The Freedom of riding out in the open. And the sights to see. I am back with SparkPeople as I get back in shape for the new season.

I don't ride the bike to lose weight, but I lose weight to ride the bike!
