I had managed to get about 30# overweight and even though I was riding my bike pretty regularly, I had not changed my eating habits one bit. So I would ride for an. Hour and then eat 1000 calories and wonder why I was not getting any lighter! When I was introduced to SparkPeople and the trackers, I was amazed to actually be able to see where the problems were. I have since lost 18# and am not finished yet. Great to have you aboard and best of luck in your goals!

Welcome! This is fun and active team with lots of info. I dropped out of biking about 5 years ago, and this team has inspired me to get back in the saddle. Tracking your calories and your exercise is not as onerous as it sounds, and it is very informative. When I stopped biking I didn't stop eating as though I was still biking and now there is H E double hockey sticks to pay :)

Hello all! IM new to the spark people site. I have been into cycling for years. I pick it up every summer it seems and put in some good mileage but despite this I still managed to gain 50+lbs over the last few years. IM hoping positive diet change and mini goals will help me beat this.
