I am in a little different boat than you, I am trying to cut down to 185 from 215 to do Bodybuilding competitions in Nov or Dec.
I have lost 12 pounds within the last month (i am about 203) which is for me a hugh deal. Most of this is from the diet I am on, although I have been gaining muscle too since I work out 4 times a week. In body building its 70% diet 30% working out.
I would tell everyone you know about what you are doing so you get a little more motivation to continue riding your bike and what not, because you dont want to be a quitter in front of your friends. I did that and thats probly the only thing keeping me hitting the gym 4-5 times a week and still eating the way I do.
Another thing should help you out is small meals at least 6 times a day spread evenly apart. I am sure you know that though. Its amazing, when you do that you dont feel hunrgy anymore. Sometimes I even feel like skipping a meal (which I dont)
