My New Bike

I had an exercise bike and I could ride that thing for thirty minutes straight and not get winded or break a sweat. I decided that it wasn't working so I found an elliptical bike where you can either ride it or stand up on it and use it as an elliptical machine. That thing kicks my butt!!! I try to stand up on it but I resort to the bike once O get too tired. I can only ride it for two minutes at a time before I get winded and have to stop. The most I can do at one time is 6 minutes. My daughter who is in good shape gets winded easily so I know that the bike is a real workout. I am still gaining and losing the same ten pounds. I finally got down to the 230's and I am going one day at a time to make it to the 220's. I feel like I will never get past 236.5. That has been my weight for the past two days. I think the last time I was in the 220's I was pregnant which was 15 years ago. I'm not going to know what to do once I finally reach the 190's. I haven't been under 200 pounds since 1994. Once I get to 199 that will still be a very heavy for me but I will have lost 88 pounds. I can't see a difference in myself at a loss of 50 pounds but I think I will be able to see a loss of 88 pounds.
