I recently completed the Yorkshire three peaks for charity and spent all my weekends training on long, hilly walks. I found I had focus with something to work towards but once I’d completed the challenge (two weeks ago) I became lazy again and had no motovation. I’m desperate to lose weight so I’m hoping this will give me that focus back to finally get fit while I decide when to take on my next adventure! Fingers crossed!
Getting fit to lose weight: I recently completed... - Couch to 5K
Welcome to the program and good luck. C25K is very straight forward - just be patient and follow your coach's advice. I'm just about to start week 7. I have lost an inch round my waist and I'm 3 kg lighter. I have cut out white and beige carbs and I stick to 3 healthy meals a day (no snacks in between). I think the calorie burning in C25K is back-end loaded (weeks 7 to 9) when you spend most of your time running, so don't expect to lose a lot of weight from the program in the early weeks.
