Today is the start of my weight loss for this off season. Last off-season, I let myself go and I only lost about 6-7 pounds since then. I am currently about 20 lbs heavier than my lightest weight and that is the weight I will get back to.
I didn't have a great cycling season this year and I feel that with this weight loss, I will be ready to turn it around next year. I plan on losing 2 pounds a week for 7 weeks so that I am down to 175 by the end of the year. After that, I will take off the weight 0.75 pounds a week.
Obviously, I will need to modify what I eat. Also, the training program I have developed for myself will have me exercising 10 hours a week on average so that will be important for me to lose weight.
I am using the same system that I have used when I have lost weight in the past: Leanness Lifestyle. When I first used the system along with the "bootcamps" they have, I lost over 40 lbs. The users and Dave, the coach, are all very supportive, but also let you know if you are whining. I remember when I first started and said I was exercising a lot but no weight was coming off even though I was watching what I was eating. Dave came back and said "Use the tools!!". He was right. Thanks, Dave!!
Anyway, I will report back periodically on my progress along with my regular type of blog items.
