Weigh-In Results

I'm back in a big way.  The commitment I made to eating right and bicycling.  I missed bicycling on the 1st due to bad weather and slipped a little on my intake yesterday, but overall, I'm back on track.

Today's bike ride took me 19 miles at 12.5 mph over the course of an hour-and-a-half.  About two-thirds of the way through the ride I was toast but I kept going because I needed to get home.  Here's the route:

According to an online calorie calculator, I burned 1400 calories on my bike-ride!  Yes Yes Yes!  If I could bike this much every day, I don't know what, but I feel like I'd weigh 150 pounds by the end of the month.

So let's see how I did on the scale.

240.4 for a loss of 4.4 pounds!  I am back!  I'm going to keep this up through July.  Let's see how much I can lose.


  1. Good to see you back at it - good luck Andrew!

  2. 4.4 lbs is tremendous! Way to go :) Congratulations and have a wonderful week!

  3. That's awesome! I can't even ride a bike for a mile... non the less 19! You must have very powerful legs.


  4. Way to re-focus....I've been in a slump the last month or so myself. Nothing that crazy, still exercising but I've let the diet get a bit out of control.

  5. Good work! Nice way to show that missing a day of biking isn't the end of the world.

    Biking for a month - do it up!

  6. Good strategy - you need to bike back home after all.

  7. Congrats! July is going to be a great month for you.
