I have lost 4 lbs not a great amount but it's a start, I went for a walk today at the beach over the sand dunes and my goodness the difference! I can feel my legs getting stronger and was not at all breathless, if this is how good it's going to feel then bring it on!!!

4lbs is just short of 2 bags of sugar that you aren't carrying around! :)

Brilliant start, it’s not just 4lbs ,it’s 4 whole pounds πŸ‘πŸ» and well done. I started to feel much better whilst walking. I attempted the couch25k but on week2 strained my ligament . So 4 weeks later I can walk and it’s better than nothing. Keep going and good luck xx

Good on you. Losing a bit of weight definitely helps self confidence and makes exercise a bit easier. The only downside is that I have found that I am running out of energy a bit if I am exercising hard and not eating many calories. Maybe it is easy to overdo it? I have started caving again and believe me, where I cave being overweight is definitely a big disadvantage - I simply won't fit down some of the passageways! I have a target to go to the bottom of Charterhouse cave in the Mendips again. I am just too fat to fit - any way too unfit.

Brilliant good for you if you don't shoot for the stars you can't fall on the clouds, right!! I want to climb Snowdonia- correction "I WILL CLIMB Snowdonia" I can see it from my lounge window which is great motivation - we sound like kindred spirits !!!
