No longer obese, its a great feeling

Just got back from running week 7 run 2, actually ran to week 6 podcast as i prefered the music - sorry Laura.

Well it was tough going this morning as the wind was coming off the sea, but easier than running in the heat of last week.

I came across C25k when i was checking my BMI on the NHS website, i weigh myself every Saturday morning and today, for the first time since i can remember i can call myself overweight instead of obese. :D

Thanks to everyone that has helped me get this far, i'm now only 7 runs away from graduating.

Good luck with your next run everyone.

Woo hoo! Well done on your progress on running and weight loss.

I moved out of the obese into the overweight range of bmi myself two weeks ago so know how good that feels! I have also started getting a shapelier butt (when I have lost weight before I have never notices my butt getting smaller!) so thank the C25k for that!

Well done! And remember that this is a bigger achievement than it first seems because when you started running some of the fat converted to muscle that weighs more.

Fantastic! That is wonderful. It won't be long until you're running for 30 minutes too :)

Well done you. C25k seems to motivate people in a way that just being told to exercise doesn't.

I started when my BMI was borderline obese and have set myself a target of top end of "normal", Also using Myfitnesspal to monitor food and exercise. Have lost 10kg and 4kg to go.
