People frequently underestimate you often assuming because you are overweight you are also sedentary. Their surprise (shock) at your physical ability gets old in a hurry.

I was in a bike shop last summer and had one of the new employees try to steer me away from road bikes toward an upright "fitness" cruiser with a big, cushy seat and a riding position like a bar stool. He became very skeptical when I told him that I have been cycling for years and ride many 100+ mile events and belong to two cycling clubs, one of which is operated by the shop we were in.

I had another individual outright call me a liar when I was talking about having put over 3,000 miles on my road bike in a year. "If you ride so much how come you're still fat?" Hmmm . . . could it be that I eat too much?

It's not how much you eat, it's what you eat...
