For some time now I’ve been able to call myself the site’s “Fat man on a sportbike” go-to guy, as evidenced by my post some time ago regarding gear available in big & tall sizes.
I’ve been on a mission to lose weight, however, and since the spring have dropped from 335 to 305 and still losing. Hopefully soon I won’t have to limit myself to what’s on that list I posted!August 17, 2009 at 2:44 pm #21684MunchParticipant
Wow!!!!! Way to go man! Keep it up!
You doing just weight loss… or strength training to?
Doin a helluva job either way!August 17, 2009 at 2:56 pm #21687WeaponZeroParticipant
Just weight loss for now. I want to wait until I’m at least under 275 before i start any exercise regimen to minimize stress on my joints.August 17, 2009 at 3:13 pm #21691MunchParticipant
That’s cool, just don’t cut yourself short. There’s plenty of low impact ways of getting strength training. Not only can it help get the unnecessary weight off but it can help you keep at it. The “rubber band” exercises are a good starting point. And using just your plain ol’ body mass….like leaning against a counter…kicking your feet out a touch and doing push ups, calf raises with support from the same counter… squats… all these can be done with no weights and can help tone up, strengthen etc.
I am doing these things myself if for no other reason then to get that mechanics gut back off me. Found a nice little 5 min exercise that gets the heart going and its been doing wonders.
Anyway, keep at it man. Seems like what your doing is making great progress for ya! Next thing ya know we will be seeing updates of you with some new looking guy trying To GQ the scoot.August 17, 2009 at 5:01 pm #21702eternal05Participant
You’re well on your way to doing what most people can never do. Stay strong, and keep up that drive!August 18, 2009 at 1:47 am #21739owlieParticipant
Wow! That is fantastic. I’m glad to hear that you have found something that works for you and are keeping up with it. Losing weight is a huge commitment. Keep it up!
