For years I have battled with psychological problems and my weight and knew I had to try and do something about both. Back in June I went to my doctor and was weighed at 20st 11lbs. At the end of August, before I started a new exercise and eating plan I weighed 20st 6lbs. So in two months I lost 5lbs.
After doing Sweatember I got weighed again and recorded 19st 10lbs a loss of 10lbs in one month. I started C25K on 1 October and today, 4 weeks and 2 runs in I weigh 19st 1lbs, a further loss of 9lbs.
So I can see that I am winning the battle over the weight, and mentally, I feel so much stronger. It's not plain sailing by any means. My mental health is horrible daily battle. Something happened on Tuesday that would normally floor me for a week and I wouldn't have got up for anything, but having started C25K and knowing the feeling I get from going out their in the fresh air listening to music and being motivated by Jo Whiley on the C25K app is amazing. So much so that I never want to miss a workout.
