Not too fat to jog :)

My treadmill has been making ominous creaking noises. Scary 'I'm about to break if you don't get your effing lump off me!' kind of noises. It never used to make noises like that and they started around the time that I gained back 30lbs and then started C25K again.
Full of fear that I am actually too fat to get fit, I checked the manual. Phew, the weight lmiit is 130kg = 286lbs. I am NOT too fat for the treadmill. So I had the maintenance guys come out and service it. Turns out it needed a lot of grease and some washers and voila, creak free once more! Total coincidence that I left it for 3 months, gained a pile and then started using it. It was probably the 3 month break that did the damage. In more ways than one! My poor body cannot get used to running again and it aches.
Although I also think I'm getting sick, so that might be the reason. I can't be sick! This weekend I am doing the first pool dives of the scuba course and you cannot have any kind of a cold or anything! I waited 3 weeks for these slots, I really don't want to have to cancel and wait again. am thinking positive thoughts about being fine. My being at work was a huge struggle though and right up to me actually being here I was debating not coming in!
And despite having fast food twice last week and some chocolate I did not gain this week, hurrah!! hopefully I'll actually LOSE over the next week, that would be awesome :)
