I did it!! If someone had told me at any point during the last 4 years that age 52 and 7+ stone over weight; that I would run for 25 minutes non stop, I'd have laughed them out of town. But I did. Today. Feels amazing.

Well done! Lovely photo, and the smile says it all. Enjoy your achievement.

Love the runner's pink and so you should be in the pink after 25 minutes running. Brilliantly done and what a smile!

I'm trying hard not to weigh myself very often. I think I'm losing inches but not much weight. I've yo yo dieted forever and I'm not doing that again. I'm making better food choices though. To be honest I ache so much after running it's really motivating me to make better food choices if that makes sense? My clothes were very tight and now they are a little tight lol.

Measuring is a good idea as your body shape Will REALLY change - I forgot to measure and only weighed myself but I have lost 2.5 stones since January and feel amazing (still have another 2.5 stone to go mind you!)

I eat healthier now and have made simple changes - nothing drastic. I drink more water though which really helps. I use MyFitnessPal as it tracks what I eat and I have linked Strava to it to monitor exercise too and adjust my calorie allowance.

Is really good to wear clothes I haven't been able to get into for years!

Keep up the good work and keep us updated on your progress πŸ‘πŸΌ
