Thanks!

Didn't think I'd need anything but was not going to take the chance. Still watching what I take in carefully. Dropped another 3 pounds in the past 2 weeks.

So you were able to maintain the low carb program and push through to a fat burner without adjusting your diet or did you take in a little extra on ride days?

You guessed it. Been on a very restricted diet the past few months. As long as I don't exercise, I'm fine. Throughout the week I had noticed that I wasn't feeling good after each ride. My pea brain...

We're supposed to be in the high 80's up here in the Panhandle. Wind is already screaming though, even worse than Tuesday. Think I might stay in and ride hills on the stationary.

Thank you. I think you are correct in saying that getting a bike sooner rather than later is the way to go. I may be on 2 wheels before I hit my weight goal.
