Hey,

Im 18yo male needing to shift about 15kgs off my 6'3 frame. I have a large build which I like but would rather not have the extra kgs.

Always been pretty active but was always one of the bigger kids go figure?

Anyway play club cricket and ride to TAFE. Doing about 75kms a week between riding and walking.

im into muscle cars aswell hence the name. :twisted:


Cheers.

My Tafe is a 17km round trip.

Also walk a 4km circuit some nights.

Hi Musclecar and welcome to the forum!

Its totally possible to rack up that many kms in a week! I do over 10kms a day in general movements (according to the pedometer anyway) And riding a bike would burn up the kms too.

Good luck with your weightloss goals

P.S What sort of muscle cars do u like, Aus, US?? My boyfriend has a 87 chevy camaro :D
Highest Weight - 93kgs
Current Weight - 68.3kgs
Goal Weight - 65kgs

The wise man Stephen King once said - The only way to go on, is to go on. To say 'i can do this' even when you know you cant

You'll find me in the almost there section :)

Welcome to the forums!!

It's incredible how quickly km's mount up when you're cycling - I do 36km per day to uni, half that to work 1 day, so if I ride the full week it's 162km per week (I think... I just added that in my head and my head's not soooo good with maths) without counting any walking or anything on weekends. Riding is just able to cover more distance.

Another car person. Shall have to introduce you to the hubby. He's currently half way through putting a vr4 motor in his Starion and all the associated shenanigans that involves. :roll:
Can't get him out of the bloody shed. LOL

Cheers,
Tegan
