Hey Fatman, good luck, just keep riding brother and that weight will fall off. Get the family involved if you can. I'm 72 years old and love mtb'ing! Hope to see you on the trails.

Nice! I'll definitely be keeping an eye on your progress. I'm in the same boat, looking to lose about 30lbs, so I can get down to 200. I had a nasty knee and ankle injury last year, and just in the past 4 months have been able to get back into riding.

Riding a bike is one of the most enjoyable ways to get to your goal. I know this personally, having lost close to a 100 pounds four years ago doing just that. My advice to you is to get out often, ride long rides, and stay away from energy gels, shot bloks, gator ade, and any other sugary fitness drinks. Trail mix, fig newtons, nuts, and other natural foods will get you to your goals faster.
