Hi everyone. Even before I've added this profile the members here have been supportive ... so thank you! In February 2016 I started out distinctly fat and unfit. I began with tackling the weight problem because that mattered most for my various medical conditions. 30 - odd pounds lighter now - a few pounds off my original target but have decided that bit doesn't matter as a goal any more - I have just moved to having fitness as my goal. With a personal trainer at the gym once a week, I've even started to miss it if I don't go (& anyway he grumbles if I haven't been!). Now onto starting to run but it's MUCH harder than I expected - not at all sure if it's the mind that is saying NO NO NO or my body saying NO NO NO. Snag is that they seem to agree with each other. Looking forward to as much support from the group as I can - I'll need it, I think!!
