I'm an avid cyclist putting in ~200-350 miles/month. I've started getting into some racing and I'm down to 150lbs, would love to obtain my goal of 140lbs, but more importantly I'd like to reduce my percent body fat vs weight.

Another Newbie, Trying to break thru my plateau
Well I started this journey in 2006 or so I can't remember the exact date. At one point I was 199lbs(BMI 32.1). I'll never forget that weigh in day. A fellow I worked with and close friend were checking out one of the scales we made for a medical company and after the weigh in my boss says wow, first one to hit 200 I'll buy you a pizza. So began my quest to be in a better shape than round.

Around this same time period we began remodeling our house and I managed to drop to 177lbs after doing a lot of the labor myself, electrical, sheet rocking, taping, painting etc... At which point I was thinking damn, what am I going to do now since we're done (around early 2009). If I don't do something I'll end up getting fat again.

I started using the new gym at work running on the treadmill etc... which got really boring really fast. So I started cycling in shortly thereafter. I began with short commutes to work and about 7mi rides.

Fast foward to 2011. I'm currently at 150lbs (BMI 24.2) which I'm happy with. From cycling about 300mi/mo which has resulted in an increase in my cardio and muscle mass in my legs and a solid core at least but I've seemed to of hit a plateau. I seem to be getting faster on the bike but my weight has been at 150 for at least 3-4mos. So I'm going to track my caloric intake to see if there's something I can do to change my diet/nutrition.
