At 66 I've Just started the NHS C25K, after being encouraged and inspired by my friend (Chadders) who has been on the plan for a few months now. Have just finished the second week of the running and have not found it too bad. In fact I look forward to doing the runs now. Start week three tomorrow. Started trying to lose weight about 8 months ago after the scales started to creep up towards the 11.5 stone mark. Started walking everyday and trying to stick to more healthy eating but over the last couple of months have been controlling the calories seriously. Now joined a yoga class which I enjoy and and have also bought some hand weights. I now weigh 9.6 stone, with my bmi at just over 21, am feeling great! The only downside to it all is having to keep going clothes shopping to renew my now too big clothes! (Only kidding)!
