Re: Losing weight

Hi violabird , same thing here! :lol: And I do have tips, but I am not exactly following them myself LOL One thing that does help me, if I bother to stick to it, is to just not have too much in the house to snack on. I also find that on running days I do snack more, but I don't feel like big heavy m...

Re: Finished week 5 Woo Hoo!

Yaaaay! I was so hoping to be able to post in this thread today and now I can! I just finished running 20 minutes and I'm absolutely over the moon! And I wasn't even going at an absolute snail's pace. (I was a fast snail haha!) I had to stop running right before w5d3 last time around due to an (unre...

Re: How to start again?

I couldn't walk at all for a couple of weeks, but I have since recovered and I finally feel like I can get back into running again. It has been two months. ...
