I got a gymboss. About $20. It works great so far. Only used a few times so far to go from walking to jogging.

I want to start the walk/jog training. I'm guessing there is some kind of stop watch/timer you can buy that will beep for you so you don't have to keep looking at your watch to see when your 3 mins walking is up and then do your 1 min jogging? Any recommendations on this appreciated.

Thank you. I do a lot of walking still. Today I refused to go below 3.7mph but I sure wanted at times to be less.

I did a 5k in the treadmill in 47:31 I know it's not great but I'm ok with that. I haven't been running long at all.

Way to go!!

Just finishing is a HUGE accomplishment - and you are right about the confidence building. You'll be amazed at what you can do now.

Congratulations!

Goals -

Get rid of 30 pounds
10 pounds gone - Buy a bikini - DONE!
20 pounds gone - Buy slinky cocktail dress
30 pounds gone - Buy size 4 pants

Life's journey is not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, "Wow, What a Ride!!!"

I did it! I did it! Amazing! My church sponsored a family fun 5K today ... just in time for my Trick or Treat Trot. Was able to jog most of the way (slowly), with a couple of short walk sessions.

I was so nervous to start ... especially seeing all the "runners" there ... but I swallowed my pride and told myself, "you just have to start where you are," and did the best I could. I am so thankful for a husband and 16-year-old son who came along to support me, and rather than move at their much faster pace they stayed with me. My son actually juggled the whole way, which brought a lot of smiles to everyone there!

It has been quite a confidence builder ... I want to continue to train and improve. I figure as I continue to lose weight and continue to train, there'll be no stopping me!! Hooray!

Sally from sunny Arizona!
