Today I went for m first run at the gym!! I'm so proud of myself - I was a bit panicky when I got there and felt like I'd stand out but I don't! I turned my MP3 player up really loud to drown out all the gym music and the exercise class and... Read more

I've been looking at photos of me on facebook. I haven't really lost any weight with my little bit of running although I knew my clothes were looser. But looking at my photos from May until now, I can see a difference - my face is less red... Read more
