Just finished w3 run3. Repeated weeks 1 and 2 so been running 5 weeks now. I started all of this to get fit and be able to be around for my children as very overweight. I also started it after being diagnosed with depression and anxiety following my sons birth. As someone that has always had confidence this is hard. I have been really enjoying running but stood on the scales after five weeks yesterday and still not lost a pound. This has made today’s run really hard and I’m starting to doubt myself again. The doctor said I could medicate or ease the symptoms with diet and exercise. I’m not against medication but I don’t really want to start something that could give me all kinds of horrible side effects and is highly addictive when I’ve been told it’s not as effective as diet and exercise. I know this is not a counselling forum but my dear running community every time I have needed motivation these posts have kept me going.
