Thank you, Tonya! I never really believed I'd be able to lose the weight that I knew I needed to, and I never expected to start running and love it like I do now. I remember so clearly when I started running how hard those run intervals were with C25K (check out the team for that, too--great people and resources there!), and the day I realized I had just run a full mile without walking I almost burst into tears, I was so happy.
I believe the key is to find something that you genuinely enjoy doing for activity, then you will want to do just because it's fun, not because you know you "should" exercise. What you eat matters a lot, but if you're in a sedentary job like me (and most of us), you have to find ways to get more activity into your day. Running did that for me; for some, it's cycling, spinning, Zumba, or something else. Find what works for you and go for it!
