When reading success stories, whether part of Spark People's "official" stories or looking at Spark pages and blogs, I see running mentioned as a progression and boost to weight loss.
I would love to run! When I see people running down the sidewalk I have a longing inside me, one that wants to get out and run. However, after a discectomy I was told never, ever, for any reason run. (I know the doctor was right. I decided just to try running, to see if he was right and only a few steps told me he definitely was.)
Like everyone here, I want to loose weight and live a healthy life. The exercise I do I put every ounce of go get 'em I have, but I've not lost one size yet. I eat well (I'm a pescatarian) and know what my trigger foods are. Is running the only way to lose weight?
