I can relate Stephanie I used to run 4 miles every week day and on weekend ran a longer distance on Sat and took Sundays as my day off. I was healthy, able to maintain a target weight with no problems and felt great. Over a series of life events, and 12 years later, I am well past my target weight thinking of running every day but up til now, not doing much to get back into the routine of taking care of myself.

Stop yourself from riding the downward spiral until you feel it is beyond reach. I don't know where you started but kudos to you for taking the bull by the horns to get the reigns back. Don't let it take you 12 years of guilt and struggling to get back to where you are happy!

Good for you

Hi Stephanie!

That is so frustrating when we stop doing what we know in our hearts is best for our health, and then 20 pounds sneaks back on. Good for you for taking control of your destiny again, and welcome to the Rookie Runners.

My name is Stephanie and I had lost 70 pound by combining a good diet with the Couch to 5k app. I completed the 9 week program and then some and had gotten to where I could jog a 5k. I had never been a runner before this and was feeling amazing. Then, around March or April this year, I stopped. I have gained 20 pounds back and am super out of shape again. I've got to get my weight back under control and down again. I once was just 20 pounds from my goal, now I'm 40 pounds from my goal.
