Newbie here. I used to run socially when younger (10 years ago size 10), but middle aged now and GP referred for weight loss surgery (not something I want but I understand the health benefits). I was given about 11 weeks before my first dietician appointment. 8 weeks in and I've lost 12lb but that's been up/down and no exercise. Could do with a virtual running partner to start running and big push before seeing dietician in 3 weeks. I also want to dance all night at the Christmas party. Could you advise ?
