I completed W4D1 today. When I started this program I lost no weight the first two weeks! I had lost 10 lbs, started and WHAM, instant plateau. Last week started a pound higher but over the weekend (a holiday weekend no less) I lost that pound and an extra. As of this morning I'd lost one more. I do know I'm starting to regain my hourglass figure and my calves are starting to look amazing in heels! I'm glad I'm not the only one who's had the stalled weight loss, I was getting pretty discouraged! My husband (who hasn't changed up his work outs) is dropping weight like crazy and I'm having to fight for every pound! But it will be worth it in the end!

I finished Week 4 today! Woohoo! It's challenging, so I am glad week 5 is just adding a repetition, because I am not really ready to walk for a minute and run for 3. I need that two minute break, hahahaha.

Congrats to all who made it through, and if you didn't, just give it another try!

I'm gonna go, go, go. There's no stopping me! -Queen

I have started the C25K running program more than once and I have never finished it. I have never made it past week 4 before I let something get in my way.

The other night when I went out to run 4.1 I was convinced I wouldn't be able to do it. I thought I was going to be tired and only be able to do 2 repetitions before I was exhausted and I had to quit and go home. But I made it. I finally crossed that week 4 hurdle.

I think I am finally in good enough cardio and physical shape that running is easier.

Here's to week 5.

Only lost one pound myself, I was on a low carb diet but now I understand that I need to change it up!

I thank Creator for the ways of creation.
For eyes to see the beauty of creation.
For ears to hear the sounds of creation.
For the heart to understand the ways of Creator
For hands to touch
For words to teach little ones the ways of Creator
I pray for love for all our relations.

I'll be completing W4D1 tomorrow...I'm trying to stay positive and not give up before I even get started! Hahaha! Hopefully the last 3 weeks will have gotten me ready for it!

Good job getting through the run today...and like everyone else has said, don't let the lack of weight loss be discouraging. The scale has little to say about actual fitness...though I will admit, it IS nice to see the numbers come down!

Good luck with the rest of this week and the weeks to follow!

Try to focus on the other changes rather than the weight....often your body will change as the muscle builds, changing the way your clothes fit and the way you look.
The bottom line is that you all ARE DOING IT! Great job!

I haven't lost much weight since beginning the program either (1 lb I think), but the most noticeable difference for me was my endurance during the runs. I still struggle, and the three minutes jogging seem a lot longer than they actually are, but I am able to get through them. I feel like that is progress because at the beginning of this program, one and two minutes seemed to be tough. Now they seem a lot easier.

Keep up the good work. I'm about to begin week 4 and I have only lost 2 pounds since I began the program. I'm more focued on how I feel after I run than the pounds lost. I have more energy and I feel more confident. Just think if you continue, that 1 pound will turn in to 2 pounds, and so on. Congratualtions on a1 pounds loss and those that are to come in the future. Just keep smiling!!!! :)

I did it! W4D1 down. I am having a hard time catching my breath in the 2 minutes so the last couple laps I had to add an extra walking minute, but who cares! I also started to get that twinge in my side, but nothing too bad. I skipped running last week though so that is probably why. I was out with the Cub Scouts at day camp and my legs were just too sore to run at the end of the day, I just couldn't do it.

I'm hoping to start seeing a little weight coming off. I am only down 1lb and that is a little depressing. For the first time though, my legs seemed more tone, but I haven't re-measured yet (a little afraid). Has anyone else noticed when they finally started to see a change?

P.S. My 'c' key is acting up so sorry for any typos!
