You have the same problem as me. You're heavy to be climbing hills. Having said that, you're also very tall and it may be you have a low fat level with heavy bones that make up your weight.
Sure, you'll be able to climb if you get fit enough but at 195 you'll certainly have to grit your teeth and work to get up steep, long gradiants. If you have any puppy fat it would be a good idea to lose as much as you can so you're lean. You can experiment with different types of climbs. My own favourites are the long but not excessively steep ones where I can stay seated for most of the time but wind up breathing pretty hard.
Personally, I love climbing hills whether I'm good at it or not. Hills make me feel like I'm working hard.
Hey thanks for the tips, I'll keep them in mind next time I'm pounding up a hill Cheers!
