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) log nutrition daily 2) exercise 30 minutes daily 3) 15 minute purge daily 4) sew 1 bobbin full every day 5) do a good deed daily
July resolutions: 1) lose 3 pounds 2) ride 200 miles 3) eat 4 vegetables daily 4) complete 1 UFO
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!
