Now I know that c25k is not designed for weight loss but as an aid to get you running continuously for 30 minutes and yes that's exactly what it does.
After stopping smoking back in March my weight went up somewhat, I was getting close to 14 stone (pot bellied little bugger) and then I decided I needed to change things and luckily found c25k.
So my journey began and fitness was improving along with my belly decreasing, September I hit a significant age and was called to Drs for health check and when weighed was 12stone 6lbs.
This morning when I weighed myself (naked -- just threw that in for the ladies lol) I was 11stone 9lbs
So along with sensible/healthy eating c25k does help with weight loss and coinsidently I ran my fastest 5k last night with an average pace of 6.48 per k
Onwards and upwards my running family/friends
