Just weighed in for the end of week two and lost another 1kg plus 8cms off my waist, so feeling good about that. Although I thought I might have lost more, and will have abetter try for week 3. I tried the Couch to 5k for ten minutes, actually 1 minute, tried running the 1 minute and my knees hurt so much, I gave it up and did a brisk 20 minute walk, today did 10 minutes on the rowing machine, so getting the exercise started slowly but surely.
One things I have noticed is my skin seems to itch a lot, has anyone had that problem when they are losing weight? I'm 5ft high, was 80 kgs now 77kgs and 7o years old, so weight seems to settle on the old bones too easily. I'm still working full time and in the tropics near PNG, so heat is often a deterrent to exercise but at 6am it is usually cool enough to have a walk, then a swim. I am interested to learn if anyone else has itchy skin when losing weight??? Cheers Donimac
