Back in Fat

10.25.2007 | 8:43 am

Here are a few facts about my life as of late:

  • I’ve been stressed out because of Susan’s cancer and her decreased mobility
  • I’ve been stressed out because of work
  • I eat when I’m stressed
  • I’ve had time to ride maybe twice or thrice per week
  • When I’ve been riding, I’ve been taking it easy
  • There is between fifteen and seventeen pounds of “Fun Size” candy bars in my house
  • Days are shorter and colder, and comfort food sounds better than raw greens and fruit
  • The shorter, colder days also cause me to feel like climbing into a cave and sleeping until March. Oh, also I have this strange urge to swat salmon out of the river.

You’ll be surprised to find, therefore, that I’ve started gaining weight. Just like I do every autumn.

Warning Signs
When I was working off the weight for Leadville, I knew I’d never stay in the 140s. Too much work. So I knew I wouldn’t be able to wear the Medium sized jerseys forever.

I no longer even contemplate the Medium jerseys, and the Large jerseys are getting a little tight.

For some reason, there are particular pants in my closet that I no longer want to wear. They just aren’t as comfortable as they used to be. And I’ve reverted to my old habit of leaving shirts untucked. Strange.

How much do I weigh? Well, I have a pretty good idea, but not because I’ve actually been weighing myself. Oddly, I find myself scale-averse at this moment in time. Let’s just say that I’d be surprised if I’m still in the 150’s.

The Plan
Usually, when I start gaining my winter weight (always well ahead of winter), I get angry at myself, even as I help myself to a second carne asada burrito (extra cheese, add guacamole, thanks).

I’m doing something different this year: I’m embracing my fat.

No, not literally.

I’m accepting the fact that it’s been a crazy couple of months. I haven’t had the time nor willpower to stay light, and while my work life has calmed down (I completed the document that was giving my conniptions, and am happy to announce that I have not been fired), my desire to break the world record in fish taco consumption has not.

So I’m giving myself a pass. I’m going to eat what I want, when I want, all the way through Fall Moab (November 9 – 11).

On Halloween, I will gorge on candy — heavy emphasis on 3 Muskateers, Milky Way, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. It will be a spectacle. You would be amazed.

While at Fall Moab, I will prove, once and for all, that nobody can eat more bratwurst than I. This is my superpower, folks, and I’m going to show it off a bit.

Then, on November 12, I’m going to start a Winter riding and dieting plan. I will begin eating right. I will begin riding consistently and according to whatever plan my coach, Robert Lofgran, gives me.

Except for on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.

In other words, by the time the new year rolls around, my weight should be right around 200.

Hey, we should have a guessing game around my weight. Knowing what you know now, what will be my weight on January 2nd?

I’ll give a Fat Cyclist T-shirt to the person who guesses closest.

PS: I apologize to each and every one of you for making AC/DC’s “Back in Black” the earwig you’ll be living with for the rest of the day.

    Mmmm. Fish tacos. Not sure I’m down with the “embracing your fat” tho … I’d rather just view it from a distance. A safe distance. Wouldn’t want to end up like one of those goats …

    You don’t have to be in the 140s to wear a medium sized jersey! Was that hyperbole, or do you like your jerseys extra loose? I’m 5′11″, 160, and wear a medium with pride (and man, I look good!). Cut yourself some slack, brother.

  4. Comment by | 10.25.2007 | 9:06 am

    Aw, you changed it and my post didn’t get added. Id say a “svelt” 163. I can’t believe your going to baloon up to 240, but I’ll give ya around 20.

    157 lbs. Eat, drink, and pedal in circles!

    You can say that you are doing it for all the noobs asking why you are called the fat cyclist.

  8. Comment by KP | 10.25.2007 | 9:12 am

    198. You were right about ‘cross, it is quite possibly the most difficult and most fun I have had on a bike!

  9. Comment by Canadian roadie | 10.25.2007 | 9:12 am

    I’ll be a realist, as I’m eating cashews by the bag while reading this. How about 187lbs – I think that’s a good goal to have while eating fish tacos but not altogether giving up on the riding. Good luck and keep eating!

    Positive, cancer-killing thoughts to Susan.

  10. Comment by Uphill Battle | 10.25.2007 | 9:13 am

    Well, FC, if you embrace your fatness like you embraced your eating and training plan for Leadville this year, I’d estimate that you will weigh 189.297.

    Mark it, dude

  12. Comment by Steve Nordstrom | 10.25.2007 | 9:16 am

    One way I determine where I need to be weight-wise is to look at the weights of the riders on the pro tour. The Tour de France website lists the weights of all 181 riders. Find the riders that are your same height, then check to see how much you should weigh. Very few of the riders are in the 140s, fatty, unless they are also very short. Are you anorexic? Maybe a few pounds will do you some good (although more muscle is better than more fat). Chocolate makes more muscle, though, right? If not, there’s always the chocolate euphoria that makes everything better.

    An interesting thing about the self-loathing of weight gain and the elation of weight loss . . . Only we, ourselves, use the scale to judge ourselves. As your loyal reader, I am inspired by your commitment and success when you lose weight and gain fitness, but I am equally inspired in a different way when you shift priorities: pass on epic adventures and stay home to celebrate with Susan . . . exchange the hardcore workout for a spin with your twin daughters . . .hyperfocus on work because ultimately it is your paycheck and not your ripped quads that will feed and shelter your family. . . It is the yin and yang of the fatcyclist that makes you human. And endearing. No one else really cares if you are up or down 40. We’re just happy to share the journey.

  14. Comment by Kris | 10.25.2007 | 9:27 am

    Damn those snack size candy bars! I start with one and next thing I know there’s a pile of wrappers in the trash can. Evil, mini calorie bombs! And my wife stocks up because there is no social sin greater than running out of candy on All Hallows Eve – oh, the shame!

    I guess 173 – purely because I weight 170 (and could stand to loose some weight) and it would make me feel better about myself if another active cyclist weighed more than me. So gain that weight for me, Fatty! You wouldn’t want my fragile ego crushed, would you?

  15. Comment by sans auto | 10.25.2007 | 9:53 am

    158. I think you’ll be looking for a head start in 2008, so you’ll stay light.
    If you want some help, I found this great website where, for the bargain price of $150 you can buy 5 pounds of fake fat to put in the refrigerator (is that what you meant by embracing your fat?)… Or maybe you were talking abou the smaller, carry along version to embrace.

  16. Comment by hellkitty | 10.25.2007 | 9:55 am

    My guess: 175.

    It’s only about 10 weeks until January and there’s 3500 calories in a pound. That’s a hell of a lot of fun size candy bars. The most you’ll put on is maybe a pound or two a week.

    Remember weight is only a number. It’s all about the BFP. Keep your Body Fat Percentage in a decent range, and you’ll be just fine…

  17. Comment by Pammap | 10.25.2007 | 9:58 am

    I’ve got a theory but can’t seem to write it in a coherent manner so I’ll just leave it at this guess: 162 lbs.

  18. Comment by monkeywebb | 10.25.2007 | 10:02 am

    I’m embracing my inner fat as well. I’m even okay with it becoming outer fat. But I will draw the line at gaining 10 pounds…which will be difficult for me since I have refused to weigh myself since the end of the B7.

  19. Comment by Mr. Toad | 10.25.2007 | 10:05 am

    Ahh, you have decided to resurrect the highly successful “Ullrich” style of winter conditioning. You know, now that he’s no longer racing, he should find the time to put down his strategy in writing and sell it to the grateful masses. At least then our winter gorging can be justifed as being a directive. Of course, this requires you have ungodly amounts of natural talent to compensate for the months of largesse, but we all have that, right?

  20. Comment by BotchedExperiment | 10.25.2007 | 10:16 am

    Now LIFT…
    165.5 pounds with one hand grabbing the window sill and the other arm on the towel hanger.

    I bet I can eat 50 eggs…
    So how many brats do you think you can eat in a casual way without *trying* to eat as many as you can and getting all sick? I think if I was hungry, and it’s pretty much all I ate, I could put away 3 (with buns) without regretting it.

  21. Comment by DOM | 10.25.2007 | 10:17 am

    I’ll guess 164, conflicting processes here: starting the winter training and the fall eating. Net change, not much.

  22. Comment by UncleFred | 10.25.2007 | 10:22 am

    Seeing as though i have regained my Clydesdale status and am still training and racing until mid december you’ve got nothing to worry about, I reckon with coach bobs supervision and you winter program you’ll remain under 200. Just. my guess…199.5

  23. Comment by Bent022 | 10.25.2007 | 10:25 am

    My guess about 182. Although the mini bars will add some I think your coach will help you loose some, but those Fatty’s mashed potatoes will put the most weight on you. BTW – I will be making them this Thanksgiving again, they are now a tradition, which go great with the orange-rosemary turkey & gravy. MMMM can not wait (weight).

  24. Comment by marc | 10.25.2007 | 10:38 am

    146. (new waltworks 29er + indulgent over eating + guilt + past efforts to be un-fat)/sandbag factor=146lbs. this doesn’t take into account whether the weigh in will be clothed or not (what socks will you be wearing). btw, how tall are you? i’m 5′6″ small and skinny and weigh almost 150#, and not even big boned; how are you so light?

  25. Comment by monkeywebb | 10.25.2007 | 10:40 am

    …and my guess is 168 for you and 189 for me.

  26. Comment by hades | 10.25.2007 | 10:43 am

    170 even. Heavy enough to be embarrassing, especially considering your previous weight, but not so heavy that it’s sloppy – because you wouldn’t let yourself go that much… would you?

  27. Comment by kegaunt | 10.25.2007 | 10:49 am

    167.5. I mean, you’ll have had a month of getting back into the groove, right?

  28. Comment by KP | 10.25.2007 | 10:52 am

    I am sticking with 198. If we have learned anything from this blog it is that FC is epic in nature. All or nothing, go big or go home. 198.

  29. Comment by Medstudentitis | 10.25.2007 | 11:00 am

    Stress does a lot to slow the metabolism through the production of cortisol. Add to that the urge to eat when we’re stressed and the winter primal urge to bulk up for harder times, and I’m surprised that we aren’t all packing a few extra going into winter. I’ve begun my transition into the gym lately as I’m back at school and I’ve been switching it up between spinning, yoga and step. The yoga has really helped my flexibility and outlook on life in general. I’m down 5 lbs and counting.

    As for your before and after weight, I would guess 169 and that in January you’ll be 155.

    Good luck!

  30. Comment by Lowrydr | 10.25.2007 | 11:01 am

    OK, I’ll take some of this action with a guess of 186.5. Don’t for get that extra whipped cream on the pie at Thanksgiving & Christmas.

  31. Comment by BurkeInTheOzarks | 10.25.2007 | 11:15 am

    159. No science behind it other than it hasn’t been chosen yet…

    Oh yeah, and thanks for cursing me with Back in Black running through my mind for the rest of day, albeit with slightly altered lyrics…

    Back in fat, I hit the sack (of candy),
    I’ve been too long, I’m glad to be back
    Yes I’m let loose from the noose (of fitness),
    That’s kept me hangin’ about…

  33. Comment by El Animal | 10.25.2007 | 11:20 am

    167 pounds, you will not get to 170 but i am sure you’ll be pretty close.

  34. Comment by dkirkavitch | 10.25.2007 | 11:24 am

    Hey fatty,
    Man, todays topic… All I can say is, I resemble that! Don’t want to get on the scales. Increased sleep. I’m giving myself until Nov. 1.
    With you, and your dedication, I’m guessing 160 by Jan 1st.
    Good luck & good vibes your way.

  35. Comment by sorelegs | 10.25.2007 | 11:43 am

    I’m predicting you’ll be back to your all time low by July 10th 2008. You’ll also take 30 minutes off of your best leadville time. What you do now is insignificant but it is very important that you do it.

    BTW right now I am eating a big old Carne Asada Burrito with extra sour cream and cheese and I havent ridden past z4 in 3 weeks. Party on!

  36. Comment by ohmypolarbear | 10.25.2007 | 11:47 am

    I predict that you will not pass my “summer weight” of 207, which is also slowly creeping up.

    I was informed after a cookout in Wisconsin that I had eaten 6 brats. Since I was not counting, we’ll call that my “normal” “safe” amount. if you eat more than this, then you are hereby obligated to try for my weight record (235), too!

  37. Comment by mocougfan | 10.25.2007 | 11:53 am

    I’m not buying what your selling. I say 162. I know you want Leadville bad next year.

  38. Comment by Badder | 10.25.2007 | 11:54 am

    I’ll take 164.

    BYW, be easy on yourself! Winter weight gain is normal and also genetic.

    Joe caveman needed a good stock of fat to survive those iceage winters when food was scarce. Though by November he was probably right out of Reese Peabut butter cups and was living off mammoth bone marrow.

  39. Comment by chtrich | 10.25.2007 | 12:07 pm

    Sans……hillarious website
    Botched……really, 3 is all you could eat without regretting it? Amateur!

    Fatty – I’m guessing 162. That’s if you stick to your presribed plan above. Which I think will be hard. I have a plan similiar to that, but I think I was supposed to start it last week. Man, that ice cream last night was good though. This is such a horrible time to start a dieting plan. Feel free to join me in the 185+ club.

  40. Comment by Michael S | 10.25.2007 | 12:09 pm

    166 lbs. Move to the Midwest and see what happens to your weight with continuous cloudy weather and easy access to brewpubs…

  41. Comment by chtrich | 10.25.2007 | 12:11 pm

    What, Mocougfan guessed the same weight as me. Cheater! Oh and it looks like someone else beat us both to it. I better go with 163 then as my official guess. That 162 above was mearly a ploy to throw other people off.

    163 is my official guess!

  42. Comment by Denise | 10.25.2007 | 12:12 pm

    I will guess 169…

  43. Comment by Harp | 10.25.2007 | 12:16 pm

    I am trying to keep my weight down also. I’m going to put in my bid at 162. Good Luck. Have fun with all of the eating.

  44. Comment by Walter | 10.25.2007 | 12:18 pm

    Loved, and I mean LOVED, the “earwig” metaphor in your postscript. (Personally, I thought the ’80s were the pinnacle of party music, though that may simply be because it was the decade I was in HS and college.)

    Anyway, my guess is that you’re going to be very goal oriented and not want to start ‘08 with anything that rounds to 170 (or more). My guess: 169.4.

    Happy fall & winter to ya!

  45. Comment by mark | 10.25.2007 | 12:27 pm

    No matter how fat you get, you won’t be like the guy I saw yesterday. Out of human dignity, I resisted the urge to snap a photo with my cell phone camera. But since my dignity is finite, I’ll still describe the scene.

    First of all, he was wearing US Postal service team kit (I wonder if they cut USPS/Disco jerseys to fit people that are minimum 30 lbs overweight, since that seems to be the only people who wear them). The only way you could tell where his neck ended and his chest began was because of the crease formed by the top of the jersey. The top of the shorts had the same effect around the “waist”.

    This dude looked like he had eaten Lance Armstrong for lunch and then gone back for dessert. I seriously do not know how his carbon-framed Trek supported the weight, as he was well over 300 pounds.

    Now I realize I may have offended certain readers, so let me say that I’ve had to exorcise my own fat demons and really have to be disciplined to keep them at bay. I thoroughly applaud anyone who uses cycling or any other sport as a means to do the same. But this scene was just too ironic since, to top it all off, he loaded his bike onto a truck with the vanity plate: “YLO JRZ.”

  46. Comment by Dino | 10.25.2007 | 1:08 pm

    Hope you don’t put on too much. Just remember that the less you put on the less you take off. Thats my goal. Don’t gain anything. I know if I keep it steady I can lose 20 in the summer. In the hopes you don’t go to crazy. 158.

  47. Comment by Gordon | 10.25.2007 | 1:21 pm

    Just about every cube in the office has fun sized treats in it and I have been fairly good so far, but am finding it increasingly difficult to resist the “fun.” I predict you will top out at 172.7.

  48. Comment by leroy | 10.25.2007 | 1:46 pm

    I guess 163 based on absolutely nothing.

    I rode a lot this season and still managed to remain about 20 pounds heavier than the average Tour de France rider at my height.

    I figure that I’ve got about as much of a chance of changing that as I do the fact that this season I also managed to remain about 20 years older than the average Tour de France rider at my height.

    In the end, it doesn’t really matter.

    I’m still going to ride.

    FC– you’ll put some weight on, you’ll take some weight off. But you’ve got a new bike. There’s no way you’re not going to ride. And that’s what counts.

    My benchmark for when to worry: if I get in to bed and the sheets are too tight.

  49. Comment by poweredbywaffles | 10.25.2007 | 1:47 pm

    you will be 164. i dont remember how long ive been addicted to this thing but i vaguely remember you being somewhere around 180 after coming back from washington. so i dont think you’ll get near that, even though today you sound determined to. btw laying off the junkfood helps w/ stress.

  50. Comment by Les | 10.25.2007 | 2:02 pm

    I’m going with 197.5 lbs.

  51. Comment by axel | 10.25.2007 | 2:07 pm

    you are too hard on yourself. that winter training can wait until new years.
    the Friel training bible suggests lots and lots of recovery, especially for ‘masters’ aged riders.
    But instead of ‘fun sized candy’ I suggest big helpings of good tasty food regardless of its calories. How about some Schweinshaxe – Ullrich would approve!
    If you follow through on that, 167lb.

  52. Comment by Philly Jen | 10.25.2007 | 2:12 pm

    No to get all “Price Is Right” on Leroy and the Waffler, but I’ll say 163.6, because that’s what you weighed at the end of your business trip last March.

    (No matter what your jersey size, you’ll always be El Jefe to me!)

    How is this even a contest? You’ll be 163.5, of course. Might as well just send me the t-shirt now and get it over with.

  58. Comment by EPB | 10.25.2007 | 3:33 pm

    Sounds like a fun descent into corpulence–I guess 176.

  59. Comment by joliver3 | 10.25.2007 | 3:37 pm

    181, but only because someone else already picked 182. Plus it’s apparently the number of riders in the TdF, according to a previous post. All in fun, not that I hope you end up there (other than so that I can get a t-shirt).

    How do you find time to ride two or three times a week when you’re busy and stressed out and have a family? I assume this means you’re not commuting right now, as that would be 10 rides right there, or do those not count? I’m lucky to get out more than once a week in the summer!

    Positive thoughts for Susan and the family…

  61. Comment by eunicesara | 10.25.2007 | 4:30 pm

    I haven’t been on the scales for years. And my rule, when I do have to be weighed, is DON’T TELL ME! I will go into a depression for MONTHS. So I stand on the scales backwards and don’t look. Don’t want to know. When the bra gets tight it’s time to take a serious look in the cupboard and start purging (the cupboard, not me!) So, I haven’t a clue what a particular weight looks like, and I think they’re all liars on Miss America.
    You’ge got to have Susan shaking her head in amusement.
    Will there be more animated interludes chronicling your epic eating?

  62. Comment by Lyne | 10.25.2007 | 5:08 pm

    Lessee. You’ll go up to 184 before the winter training season starts, and slowly take it down a bit (but not too much cos it’s cold and carbs are good) to 174. But then the holidays hit with all the great food, booze and less riding and back up to 179 on Jan 2.

  63. Comment by squeakycyclist | 10.25.2007 | 5:17 pm

    I hope those 3 Musketeers are FROZEN, because they are just TOO DISGUSTING any other way.

    Snickers. I use to love the Snickers. And Forever Yours.

    Oh, yeah, I’m guessing 176, just like me!

  64. Comment by Rbrigman84 | 10.25.2007 | 5:49 pm

    I’m gonna say 177. Try to work it out so that you end up there, cuz I could use a new t-shirt to wear at the bike shop.

  65. Comment by Co | 10.25.2007 | 7:06 pm

    this response to hellkitty who said:
    . . . (at 3500 calories per pound) . . . The most you’ll put on is maybe a pound or two a week.

    hellkity must be a naturally thin person. I promise that while I can (with great effort) *lose* a pound or two a week, I can *without effort* add 10 pounds a week (requiring 5-10 weeks to reverse). many experiments over decades have confirmed this fact.

    FC – if you’re *only* eating at will until Nov 9 (2 weeks) then *actually* eating and riding per Lofrgan rules, I guess your Jan 2 weight at (cw+20) – (2*rw) where cw is your undisclosed current weight, and rw is the number of weeks from 11/11/07 to 1/2/08.

    hellkitty – can you see now how I can gain 10 lbs a week? If I’m too lazy to look up the weeks between 11/11/07 and 1/2/08, I likely will not be following Lofgran eating and exercising rules…

    Nobody’s said 178 yet, have they? I have no idea how heavy that actually is, we use stones (lbs x 14) in the UK, and the cycling press always uses kgs to describe riders’ weight.

    It would be extremely uncharitable for any of us to accuse you of sandbagging for next years B7, wouldn’t it?

    I’m going for 196 because you’ll be aiming for the 200lbs mark but the pride of having eaten your own body weight in candy, burrito’s & turkey dinners and still scrape under the 200lbs.
    It’s a goal to be aimed for. ;0)

    100lbs less than my current uber fatcyclist weight of 288lbs = 188lbs

    Nahh. I think our svelte friend is pulling a flanker.
    He’s not putting weight on at all. :)

    Hmmm, lemme see now, how about 147 (or 10 and half stone in real money)?

    174 b/c it hasn’t been taken and I need an FC shirt for the cause. IF you stick with Coach Bob’s plan at least part of the time, and ride your new sexy bike, you’ll never hit 175!

    Live Strong!!!!

    Best to the boss………..

    I’m gonna go with 184.5, I doubt you’ll reach 200 because with diet who you should basically maintain.

    I love how we all try to back our guesses with our own scientific answers.

    Ullrich used to gain 1 kilo per day during october and november, while still riding 500k per week.

    Consider yourself lucky FC

    The winter riding plan will keep things from getting completely out of control.

    162! I’m a few months ahead of you – already gained the winter fat, now busy workign it off! :-)

    I vote on 178lbs. With the diet and the winter riding I doubt you’ll hit 200lbs, but I’ve been wrong before.

  82. Comment by Justin | 10.26.2007 | 6:07 am

    183 it will be.

    i’ll need your resting heart rate and fall t.v. watching plans (cable or satellite).
    also, do any of your kids have goldfish? what was the color of your first car?
    do you like nachos with or without sour cream?

    i’ll need all of these answered before i make my educated guess.
    thank you.

    I didn’t read all the other comments, so I could be duplicating an entry, but I’m going with 175. A man being in the 140s is just ridiculous. That’s what I weigh (used to weigh). You are working too hard, you deserve a few laziness pounds. I’m also gaining weight this winter, but being pregnant I fully intend to blame all weight gain on baby bulk and water retention. It has nothing to do with the extra fish tacos and pizza.

    **Mmmmmm. Tacos. Lunchtime.**

    I’m 6-2, 160 — I can get into a medium.

    But I say you’ll be at 158. I have faith.

    155.6 lbs or 70.57 kg, whichever is heaviest.
