Week 2 Run 2 with a large fish!

Week 2 Run 2 with a large fish!

I have 70lb to lose in weight. The fish in the picture is 70lb! I can't help thinking running will be much easier without having to carry the darn thing around with me. I am on my second pair of 'New' trainers as I had to take the last pair back as they crippled me! These new new ones were better. I had terrible trouble with my MP3 today, it kept coming off and stopping so I had to ad lib without laura and manage...it was a bit of a shame. I still got out there though!

....and that's what counts in the end..(getting out there) Must be a Monday thing...a bunch of us seem to have struggled today.

Love the fish...I imagine I am running carrying a hod of bricks...each brick weighing 5 pounds...that's .... a lot of bricks to throw away for me (lol).

Keep up the good work!

Phew I don't want to be carrying fish or bricks!

That is a big fish, you think loosing a pound doesn't sound much but if you hold a pound of something or a bag of sugar is 2 pounds it is lots. Good luck with your goal, I haven't really concentrated on the diet but now I have graduated I will keep running at this level and watch the diet. I agree running is more comfortable without the extra weight.

But I'm celebrating tonight as I graduated, the diet starts tomorrow!

Well done. I struggle at the moment without Laura. The photo is a great idea - I want to lose 2 stone so will try and find an image that equates to it. Mrs Lazy your tip about visualising a bag of sugar is great too. I started cutting down last week and was disappointed with my 2lb loss ... but I'm not now!

My friend always used to say she needed to loose the weight of our Irish Terrier and her Jack Russell - now there's only the JR to go! :-)
