Hi, My name is Scott and I live in Southern NH. I recently joined SP, and it has been close to 2 months since I started my health/fitness lifestyle change. And the key to my new fitness plan is riding my bike. I've been living a very fast paced, busy family lifestyle. At 248lbs with a bunch of various health issues such as arthritis, high cholesterol, pending knee replacement and most recently high glucose level, I've been trying to start a diet and/or exercising more many times over the past decade and a half or so. It was the glucose level that got me. I changed my diet, started recording my daily food intake, seeing a dietitian, and (though I was going to wait till after my knee surgery in March 2011 to start biking) I decided the time was now and bought a bicycle (Trek Navigator 3.0), which I've been riding a lot since. I love it. I feel a lot better. I had another glucose test a month after starting and it was significantly lower. Now that I see the difference I know I need to stay focused, stay healthy and there is a long way to go.
