I officially hit 50 pounds lost in total since starting my journey at the end of June. My doctor was completely shocked and said that instead of weight loss surgery , he thinks I can get down to 150 on my own. I ran, well jogged slowly, for 30 m... Read more

Decided to start the couch 2 5k program. Day 1 was this morning and it was a little painful! Running on pavement and doing intervals really worked my thighs. I think i might do Week one twice since i am incredibly slow and when i jog it doesn't ... Read more

I'm 15 pounds lighter than when I started 8 weeks ago. I'm feeling like I'm losing weight too slow but I guess I should be happy it's coming off. I really would like to start running but every time I try on the treadmill I can only go for about ... Read more
