Question Fat lazy dude trying to turn my life around.

Dec 19, 2019
This year I have let myself go beyond what I ever thought possible. Separated from my wife, sold my house, live in a furnished apartment and began eating to fill my boring hours after work. Problem is, I am now at the heaviest I have ever been. I hate it and I need to get back in the game.
I used to be a fitness freak and was always the fit healthy guy until I ruined my back, knees and shoulder in the military back in 2005 and I went down a depressed filled *** storm of a life style. Beer and food took over as depression just ate me to death. I have started walking, but being in South Dakota right now, it is dangerously cold at times and obviously very slipery and I have a ton of hills around my area. Walking is only going to get me so far. So I have changed my diet and am ready to find a bike to get my fatass back into decent shape.

Is it a game? Can we bet on how much miles he is riding by bike in 2020? Or should we bet on his shape and how much pounds he will lose next year? I'm a bit confused and need definetely more information.

I live in the Midwest and can't ride my bike on roads during the winter. I bought a road bike and smart trainer so I could ride my bike indoors. If money is tight, you can buy a fluid trainer (which puts resistance on your wheel) and a speed sensor to get the cost down. There are a several programs that you can use to ride indoors including games, training programs, social interaction and also just pure metrics based programs, if you like staring at charts while you ride.

I'm assuming you own a bike already so take a look into one of the trainer options so you can get riding indoors. Getting back into it will feel like riding a bike again.
