Over 500 miles...Over 45 pounds since 9/1/19

Bought my bike on September first. It was a purchase to jump start my exercise and activity. I was 50, 5 10 tall and 230 pounds. Ihaf lost weight before and got down to 170 (which was too thin) But running and the gym just fidnt motivate me to exercise. I thought mountain biking would be a fun alternative and a great way to get in shape. That first ride was brutal. Wow was i out of shape. 5 miles seemed like 500. I kept at it though and within a week or so i was up to 10 miles. Now 20s and no problem. So far I have ridden 518 miles and lost over 45 pounds. I ferl better than i have felt in years! I probably wanna drop maybe 5 more. Looking forward to more rides and better health!!. This place has been great for motivation and inspiration. Thanks!
