I started C25k in July 2014 (so the app tells me) however I gave up mid week 3, I don't remember why, probably laziness.
Anyhow, I've just got divorced which has motivated me to loose the rather large rubber tyre I have accumulated. I fully understand C25k will not necessarily make me loose any significant weight however will it help me to get rid of the fat around my middle? I've had it for a good number of years and I am sick of it, time for a change.
I know diet is important too, and my diet on the whole is pretty good, the biggest contributing factor to my tyre is beer. The industry I work in is pretty liquid, in particular the people I work with. I will be cutting the alcohol to special occasions only.
Now after the rambling background I have a question. I am a very immediate person, I hate waiting for anything, especially the positive effects of exercise. If I don't see immediate results I get demotivated (possibly what happened in July 14). To give me some reality, realistically how long am I talking before I start noticing differences such as looser clothing? I only ask so I don't get demotivated after week 2 and no change.
I fully intend to complete the C25k this time, I really enjoyed my first session this morning. On the days I am not running I will be doing other forms of exercise such to build muscle but using my own body weight only (lunges and the like).
Thanks for reading, I hope to join the graduate tower in around 9 weeks.
