Motivated to do more

Just back from visiting friends and family in south of England. Not seen them since losing weight (starting with 12 week plan) and graduating C25K.

Their very positive reactions to the new improved slimmer & much fitter me has motivated me to kick start weight loss again. I haven’t lost any weight since before Christmas although my shape has changed for the better with running.

I know the scales are not everything but I still feel uncomfortable around the middle, especially when doing aquafit as the belly is very wobbly. As I result I am going to try to lose another 7 lb or so, which should help with running as less weight to carry.

Got a 5 k charity run this Saturday and a 10k the following week at the same time as the local ½ marathon, which I hope I will be able to do next year.

So for those of you struggling with weight loss and C25K, stick in there, both plans work and I am now passing on the word to everyone who has seen the change in me.

Hi Windswept1,

Really great that your friends and family gave you such nice comments. Really motivating. Slimmer and fitter - a great combination!

Enjoy your week.
