I am in the same boat. I bought myself some running shoes and the new issue of Runner's World Magazine. The January issue has some good articles.

Like some others have suggested I am starting off alternating walking and running. I have set myself a goal of running on a 5k in March. That should give me a little extra motivation.

I look forward to sharing some good stories

You could try the couch to 5k program. You walk for a few minutes, then jog for one and so on until in a couple of months you're jogging for 30 min. Also, clear it with your dr if you have health issues.

SparkPeople has several teams you can join. It's a structured weekly walk/jog guideline to follow. Check them out and see which one would work best for you. Good luck on the jogging.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!
No such thing as last place only finishers.

I Have this strong desire to jog. I am 194 pounds, 48 Years of age, Hypertensive and most of my weight is in the stomach area and hips. I get short of breath at times exercising due to my weight which i have never gone this high before. I really want to start jogging. What should i do as a beginner without feeling afraid i might pass out. Any tips. Thanks!!
