Default Big Guy looking to get Fit

I am new to medical weight loss. Even though I am an active cyclist and ride 40 – 50 miles a week, I am still way too big. I am from Baton Rouge, La. and am on a weight loss program called ONE WEIGH administered by a local Gastroenterology clinic. I am using Optifast products and attend classes and have a weekly weight in. I weighed 301 pounds when I started last week.At 6 feet tall, I am measly 120 pounds overweight. So far, so good. I have lost 14 pounds in 5 days. I don’t expect this to last but it has gotten me really supercharged. I look forward to meeting some of you folks through this website.
