In January of 2010, I started this blog the same time I started cycling. I had not been on a bike in over 17 years. I was fat. 60 pounds overweight. By the end of 2010, I had lost over 30 pounds, and ridden my first century.

In 2011, I created a bucket list of sorts, and continued cycling. The weight did not come off as it had in 2010 because of one reason – diet.

For 2012, I have committed to a much better diet, to riding over 3,000 miles, and losing another 20 pounds.

We’ll see how it goes.



  1. Just read your posting about reaching 2,000 miles. What you are doing (and have done) is what cycling is all about. El Tour is not about the Platinum, Gold, Silver or Braonzr medallion or the 40, 66, 80 or 109 miles you did. It’s about what you did to get there – those 2,000 miles. El Tour is the icing on the cake. Enjoy it. You already accomplished a great deal. Thanks for riding El Tour and for being such a great inspiration to me. Gives me another reason to keep going on …

  2. You can do this. You can. You can. You can.
    Just read your list of goals and extremely impressed. I can give you tips anytime on playing St. Andrews. I walked on in 1999 when someone dropped out of a 7am tee time. Dream on my friend! You’re not alone.

  3. should I cry now or later…this is so inspiring! Go for it:)

  4. I’ve never been 60 lbs overweight, but I can tell you with some confidence that doubling those miles you have posted over to the right will do the trick! The only reason I know this is because that’s what I did last year and it was suddenly a whole different world. Great blog, entertaining read. Keep it up!

  5. I was awarded the honor of the Liebster Award. I’m passing it on to you. Thank you 🙂

  6. Wishing you the best!

  7. Hi,

    Just wanted to share this bicycle safety guide with you http://jknylaw.com/bicycle-safety/ in hopes you might share it on the 2K in 2K10 The Unfat Project blog as a cycling safety resource. We created this graphic to increase bike safety awareness across the United States.

    If you do decide to share it on your site you would really be helping us increase bike safety awareness in the cycling community. Thanks for taking the time to look at the graphic and please do not hesitate to email me back with your thoughts on the graphic and if you decide to share it or not. Thanks again.

    All the best,
