Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It must have been the Red Velvet part. Just a bit too much for the dietary benefits of plain cheesecake to overcome.

Running is more physically demanding than cycling IMO. When I run, I’m sure I look deeply pained and suffering but for sure am having an amazing time.

Sometimes, it's worth paying the price of being good for a few days.

I've run into one smoking hot nurse in my life. Unfortunately, she was assisting the doctor when I got a colonoscopy. Not my finest moment.

I went to a cardiologist a while back who had a receptionist that weighed about 300 pounds. That just made me scratch my head.

Next time you see someone coming in the office with junk food, shout out, "No, not on my watch!"

Make a big spectacle of it.

I have a hard enough time getting/keeping good staff. They are grownups and know right from wrong. I am going to bite my tongue and have another donut.

Bothering fat people about their weight seldom helps. They know it and it's usually a source of shame.

Aren't you the guy who was wondering how to increase your caloric intake?

Losing weight takes dedication and a certain level of obsession, and it's ASTONISHINGLY easier to regain any weight you lost than it was to lose it in the first place. Plus which, losing weight means you will feel hungry, really hungry at times and you'll have to work through it. I lost almost as much weight as I did last year back in 2013, but I gained it all back by mid 2015.

There's something about a cobbler and his shoes?
My last car I neglected for years, waiting for it to quit. It kept going,maybe just to spite me.

I suppose it's a little different when it's your body, though?

Hey SoCal/LA people! Mrs datlas and I are plotting another trip to LA area to visit daughter and get in some cycling. Tentative dates are late February. Instead of staying in LA proper, we are thinking of staying in/near Pasadena for easy access to natural wonders towards the East and also for hillclimbs up Mt Baldy etc., any tips/suggestions? I am guessing it will be pretty chilly at the tops of the mountains, but still passable by bike??

My friend was 300 lbs @ 5'8". He trained and dieted and got to 180 and crushed double centuries and climbing rides and was quite fast. Emotional issues had him back to 240, then down to 190 where he was doing 15k miles per year. The past few months he has crept up to 210, or so. It goes back on so easy.

In February, it could be beautiful, sunny, and mild temps. It could also be dumping rain and snowing at higher elevations. Baldy would definitely be a "higher elevation". As a guy who has lived in Pasadena and adjacent cities his whole life, I know a little about the area. Feel free to reach out for local knowledge.

This season is usually the worst! Last year, of course, with the staff only in half the time (lab work at work, analysis and recordkeeping at home), nobody bothered with bringing in cookies, and the usual treats from vendors didn't appear either. I'm curious what this year will bring.
