Oh cycling didn't result in weight loss for me - as I cycled a lot even when I was hugely overweight. But yes, it has definitely helped with toning. I know this as old clothes I can get into now (I have some from years ago), the last time I wore them I was a stone lighter than I am at present - but I didn't exercise as much then - so I'm definitely more toned than I was.summerdays said:Congratulations on your success. For me cycling hasn't provided me with a great weight loss (I think weight has transformed from fat to muscle), but I think it definately has helped with toning.
No, I will not be having a day off, as I don't diet I'll be having a *proper* Christmas lunch, but I'll be making sure the meat is lean and I pig-out on lots of veggies. I shall be eating vast quantities of brussels sprouts, green beans, carrots, broccoli, swede and roasted butternut squash. I'll watch the amount of roast potatoes & parsnips though as they are starchy veggies. I shall be well-fed with normal food!Will you allow yourself a day off on Christmas? from strictly following your normal food?
