Week 9 day 3!!!

And I done it! Today I officially graduated and it feels amazing. Yes I'm fitter, sleep better and have lost a couple of pounds but the main thing I got out of this was confidence in myself. 3 months ago I laughed when my sister challenged me to do this and tonight I ran 31.45mins because I wanted to prove to myself I could do 5km and I did. It's been tough, at some points I wanted to quit and go back to chilling on the couch but I'm so glad to have to stuck with it and this forum has been so helpful

    I used to absolutely despair at contestants on TV shows who would gush that they had been on such 'an emotional journey' - oh, honestly! Now, however I can see where they are coming from a little.

    Yep, I've lost a bit of weight too, about 6 or 8 lbs I think but the self confidence kick is the biggest thing.

    Well done again and I hope it continues to make you feel good.

  • Congrats and well done :)
