Life but not as we know it !

Way past middle age, but mentally still in my 30s. Got most things in life sorted, but bloody sick of being overweight (about 3 stone) I was a fat child this has followed me through life. Can do the diet but the weight always comes back on !! I am a member a gym & do spin a couple of times a week. Have just moved & we back onto a graveyard which I have started running around - the residents haven't complained so far !!

  • If the residents start complaining, you'll be running faster than the speed of light๐Ÿ˜‚ Well done on starting with the running. I needed to lose a tad over 3 stone when I started c25k too and like you, the diets worked fine but never lasted! I chucked my scales when I started and have been monitoring the change in body shape and how many of my old clothes I can now get into again :) It really is an amazing programme. I never really believed I could do it but unlike the dieting, it gradually becomes addictive and the health benefits are incredible. Good luck with your runs, keep on going and keep posting!

  • Thanks for this - have done week one & day one of week 2, having a rest day from it. Let's hope I become addicted !!!

  • Well done you... you will find that running combined with a weight loss programme will make a huge difference, and in more ways than one. Go for it!!

  • And I'm a big fan of spinning too, it's such good fun!!!

  • Thanks

  • Welcome to the forum which is fab for advice & support. Hope you enjoy the programme & become addicted as most of us have. Keep us posted with your progress :-)

  • Thanks

  • RunningGeek - I was just thinking about you! I've not been on this forum for a while - time, illness and lack of running and was wondering if you'd graduated!! Look at your luvverly badge ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ŠMany belated congratulations โญ๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰. I lost my way a bit, but am back with a vengeance now! ๐Ÿ˜˜

  • Good to hear from you, and thank you. Yep, still can't quite believe that I am a graduate :-) Pleased that you have clambered back on the train, look forward to hearing of your adventures :-D

  • Welcome and well done.. slow and steady and take the rest days in between your runs.. so important! Love the image of your run.

    Keep up the exercise and keep posting your runs too... you will find us very helpful and super friendly!

  • Runfromfat - be warned, it pulls you in this running larkโ˜บ๏ธ. Enjoy every little achievement and be super smug that you've started the program. From a confirmed non-runner - you'll love it ๐Ÿ˜˜
