Would like to thank everyone here for their help and support throughout this journey .

Not sure which direction the next part of the journey will follow as there are several Apps and programs for the next step which will be 10K .

I am still amazed that in December last i was 63 years old and 17.5 stone and not run since i was in school .

i decided i need a life change and followed "Marisa Peers " program to loose weight ( not to the letter but quite close) and also cut back on the alcohol.

Then a few weeks ago started the C25K which to be honest did not expect to finish but thought i have to start some where .

And here i am today 64 finished C25K and under 13.5 stone

Yay! Just keep going! ☺ giving up alcohol means far fewer empty calories which you then have to spend on good quality grub 😊
