I have always been the chubby one. I am 5' 4 1/2" and was 150 in junior high, 180 by the time I graduated from high school. Getting to a healthy weight has been an on and off goal for most of my life and will likely continue to be one.

I started the Couch to 5K program this summer, 2010, and have been amazed at my body's ability to change even while I'm still in the "obese" category. I went from running 60 seconds to being able to run 20 minutes without stopping. I am running a 5K in September and I'm so excited!
