Fat Mama Barreling Down the Mountian on Two Wheels
« on: July 27, 2013, 10:39:51 AM »
Laughing at myself this morning  :)

This week I got out my expensive, neglected bicycle and dusted it off.  Went on my first ride in a long time this morning.  It must have been quite a sight because I live half a mile up a mountain and I could definitely stand to lose some weight.  I was a little wobbly at first but I made it to my weight watchers meeting without my car.  (Then I had to walk my bike back up the hill because I am not strong enough yet.)

Working on both being badassity, and shrinking that bad ass.

Way to go!  I am the first one to say Mustachianism leads to a healthier lifestyle.  I joined up last October and almost through osmosis have lost 70lbs.  It wasn't on purpose, it was just when I gained control over one part of my life, it slowly poured into the rest of my life. 

I too looked quite silly on my first bike ride, I'm sure!  We're all riding with you:)

I bet you owned that Weight Watcher's meeting too! 

Good for you.  You will get stronger and it will get easier.  If you keep it up, by Labor Day, you'll see progress even if it's just a little.

You go, mama! The bike rides will get easier over time, and you'll be oh so much more fitter and happier for it.

Thanks everyone!  I had fun (sort of) and repeated the trip to town a couple more times.  I am looking forward to doing more of it.

Nice post, and good for you!  A few Queen songs come to my mind reading this.

"I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride it where I like..."

And of course the song that fondly references women that make the rockin'-world go round....

The thread title sounds like it should be a Violent Femmes song.
