I started couch to 5k on Monday. I started putting on weight after my hysterectomy in 2012 and nothing I have done since has worked. At best I've managed to maintain rather than lose.
I do have a self destruct button though, and when I achieve a little loss, I eat something I shouldn't.
Recently I've started sea swimming daily (weather allowing) and now the couch to 5k. I feel I can motivate myself a bit more now - it's just that self destruct button that's seemingly impossible to stop.
I have a really happy life so why do I do it? 😐
I'm trying moderation now, and exercise, not a diet, as I self sabotage those eventually when I get little or no results and I'm tracking exercise and weight on My Fitness Pal. Wish me luck and I wish you luck on this journey!
