Good idea!


Hi, I have been exercising for over a year now. I am severely overweight and as short as I am wide, with a bmi of 50!! As I am still the same a year on although slightly fitter than what I was but still no where near someone who walks for buses etc I thought I better do something else. Then I came across the 12 week plan. So on top of my usual light exercise which I am continuing I have started this plan. I am 3 days into it and having done 4 of my usual sessions on top of the plan and I feel great, a bit sore in places. Although now I am feeling even more hungry! I hope I don't lose the motivation and determination I have. Although being so obese I went for an mot and the results came back practically perfect, no risk of stroke, heart disease etc etc with a 97% healthy result. I put it all down to my previous healthy lifestyle. Any other tips for me would be great!
