I celebrate being 30 lbs faster!

I celebrate being 30 lbs faster!

I can’t really call it a new years resolution, it was more like a late 2013 resolution. Regardless it’s nice to set goals and reach them.

In October I decided to reverse my life long trend of slowly gaining weight. I mean I could forgive myself the first 20ish years but really I did not have the same excuse (growing up) for the following 20. When it creeps up on you like that you really never feel that heavy, but I was definitely getting up there. It was made worse by the last five pounds I gained after the rough late summer I’d had with a very sick beloved pet.

What did I do?

I did start exercising a little more, but mainly I started watching what I ate. I downloaded an APP for my phone and got down to work.

End result?
I’m way over 30 lbs less than I was when I was in October.

OK, so what does this have to do with motorcycling? It should have something to do with it, this is a blog about motorcycling right?

Well I’ve already mentioned how I’m now faster here.  Which should be enough really, but sadly there is another side effect which I had not foreseen.

It’s what some might call ironic, but since irony is a difficult thing to define I’ll just call it a strange/funny coincidence. As I mentioned in another blog post, one of my motivations for losing the weight was the fact that my heated vest was getting a “bit” tight, and I was worried that I wouldn’t fit it any more. So I’ve lost all this weight and it fits fine… but now my aerostich riding suit doesn’t fit so great anymore…

  1. 30 pounds, that is real weight. Maybe buy some more Kevlar re-enforced pads to fill in some of the gaps.

  2. Great job on losing so much weight – that is a huge accomplishment!
