I'm back on the program

Hi everyone. I've not posted in ages (maybe 8 months), totally fell off the running wagon when I tried to make the transition from treadmill to outside. But I'm back on it, having completed week 2 last night, in the heat! Also started slimming world and lost 11.5lbs in my first week. Second week was a more realistic -1.5, ha. Looking forward to reconnecting and being inspired by all you lovely people x

PS, admins, maybe I need to re-earn my graduate badge

Welcome back and Wowzers re slimming world. I only ever managed ½ - 1lb every week. PLEASE share how you did that the first week!!! 😄

I also found it hard to get the confidence to go outside and stuck to the trusty treadmill through most of the programme. Having lung disease i find I notice car fumes when running that I’m not conscious of when walking so feel safer in the gym. Up in the lakes tho the air is fine and I discovered I really like it outside much better. Good luck with week 3 x

Lol I think it was a case of the new brush sweeping clean. I didn’t stray off the rule path, very few syns and also starting c25k and walking all in one week. The program is easier with every pound gone.

Thank you!
