So, Rider, the sun is rising a lil' earlier.

Birds are chirping again every morning.

Spring is definitely around the corner.

 

What makes cycling extra harder is W E I G H T.

 

How was your winter performance in the kitchen area?

Did you lose / gain / hovered? Or don't you really care?

 

C'mon, own up! B)

 

I am about 3.0 kgs over my ideal shape. Sitting squarely at 76. 5 kgs. Not too shabby. And there's work to do.

I always liked the comment by Floyd Landis, "I don't diet, when I go a few pounds over ideal I stop eating for a few days, yes I get grumpy as hell, but I shift the weight" - but he never was quite sane.!

 

My weight never changes, I have been 77/78/79 kgs for the last 20 years, I dont diet, I dont watch what I eat and I enjoy a glass of wine every night (okay sometimes a bit more :) ) I always have a few beer's over the weekend and indulge in a few of life's pleasures, like fresh lemon cream cake, or hot malva pudding and ice cream........in my opinion there's more to life than riding a bicycle and life's far to short to worry about what you eat, keep it in moderation and enjoy.

I January I weighed 92kg. I am 1.83m

 

I now weight 78kg. I lost 14kg this winter.

 

Lots of training and watching what I eat.

 

Need to loose 4 kg more. I am positive I would have by the end of September when riding the Karoo to Coast.

 

One day at a time. One kg at a time. :D

WOW! Nice work man. You must be noticing some serious difference especially when going up hill. You weigh 2 (road bikes) less than you did!

 

I'm around 88/89 at the moment. 3kgs above my race weight but it will drop off quickly enough when IM training begins on November 1. Until then I will just be "fat" and happy. I am 194cm tall.

Gee, ja, it is easy to let it the scale climb a bit higher during winter, but hasnt been too bad this year, only 1 or 2 kg's for me - Been really bad weather to maintain the training.
