    So Earl Gray, what's the deal? You gonna do this or not? I've toyed with the idea of losing 20 the past few years and have never had success (lowest I got was 149). But if you are serious…here's an idea, put your weight / body fat up here everyday in this thread…..I'll do the same, at the risk of tremendous ridicule from these v-salon nuts. You in? 157.6 / 11.8

    Having very slowly worked my way from nearly 220lbs in 2003 when I started riding again to 169lbs this race season, I can tell you that diet is a far bigger knob than exercise. I'm convinced of the benefits of eating real food and abandoning anything processed. Organic fruits, veggies. No high fructose corn syrup, soy, white flour, sodas, etc. Your body will be far happier without all the extra junk. Riding is certainly useful but you can't ride your way to thin without some food quality improvement. That's my experience on 150 miles a week year round with plenty of intervals in the middle.

    I have the TANITA that Josh mentioned….works well, body fat stuff is often all over the place, but everyone tells me that is par for the course.

    Lovin' my new Withings wi-fi scale. It automatically uploads weight and BF% to your computer for tracking purposes.

    And unless you tell her, your wife or gf will have no idea when she steps on it in secret.

    Seriously, highly recommend.

    DarrenCT-you need a scale like another beer fridge! i used this for several months and its very easy though a bit rudimentary. but its the habit and having to input food and exercise that is most effective. you can see where yer going wrong. i no longer use it cuz again, i was able to change ny habits by using it and its habit now. Lose It! - Succeed at weight loss with Lose It!

    Weight and body fat seem like barking up the wrong tree in terms of decision-making. It's too late then and the numbers fluctuate too much (weight, and body fat from a scale, anyway)

    First Friday weigh-in for me. The impetus... Hurt my knee the last week of off season before the real training began. I haven't gained any real weight just a good bit less power, I've been eager for this offseason to make gains and figured now is the best time to lose the # and be near the weight for the real training. I've still raced this season, just with some lack luster results -limited training, loss of power and knee pain will do it every time.

    6'2" 34" 186.6#

    Long term goal sub 170#...I'll be chiming in Mondays and Fridays.

    They have gotten fancy pants since I got mine almost 10 yrs. ago. This is an example of what perf. bike sells:
    TANITA Product Reviews and Ratings - Weight Control - Tanita Ironman BC-554 Scale from Performance Bike
    Tom, it might help to take the measurement in the evenings which as I understand is when you potentially most hydrated and will give the best body fat readings.
    I could stand to lose 10 lbs but I'm not going to think about it!!!
    You guys are great. Go for it.

    Not sure if I should be offering advice, given my fast metabolism and the OT comments. However, I've found that eating more veggies and complex carbs (whole grains, whole grain toast and pasta), has been helpful. Complex carbs digest more slowly and give you less of a sugar spike. The fiber in veggies also lowers the glycemic index of food. I've been moderating my meat intake as well - I'm not going vegetarian or vegan and nobody has to, but I think most of us eat way more meat than we need or is healthy. Less meat = lower grocery bills, also.

    The NY Times health blog's recipe page has been good. See, for example, orecchietti with tuna and beet greens (but kale and chard are also great and I think collards would work). Simple, healthy and good.

    I've had to adapt my tastes some, but you get used to it.
