Week 4 run 1

I completed wk4 run1 yesterday and it was ok! Better than I thought. I ran with a friend and that definitely helps. I am really enjoying the running and do feel proud of myself! I have been doing slimming world for the last 8 weeks and have lost 61/2lb. The weight loss is so slow for me. I went to SW because I couldn't manage the healthy eating programme on my own, although sometimes I feel like I am setting myself up to fail (I never quite get to the land marks..... While others get their 1/2 stone award in the second week!) I have to believe that slow and steady is the best way but have just realised that my weight loss problem is that I don't believe I can do it. I can't visualise a new healthy, fitter, slimmer me even though that is what I want. I really do need to think positively and stop my self sabotage. I love reading the posts here and find them so helpful.

If you are making such good progress with running you must be toning up really well and that will be making a difference to your body shape. Slow and steady is Ok, dieting is tough, we reward ourselves so much with food that trying to change anything leaves a big empty hollow inside sometimes! It sounds as though you are doing really well, keep up the good work and give yourself a hug sometimes!


Well done on the Weight loss and running Bonjour! I'm a runner too - and although I'm battling weight loss at the moment I know running does keep you toned and fit! I'm currently 12 stone /5ft 6in but don't think I look that heavy. Possibly swimsuit on the beach might be different though!

What actually happens at a slimming world session? Have considered going but hate the idea of just sitting around and talking about food for an hour! Is it like that?
