I was another who was approaching 40 and found it time to do something.
it was a couple years ago now and I'm 35kg lighter and in my healthy range.
You can do this and it seems you're doing all the right things!
Metalcharm, that's so inspiring- thankyou, I love getting new posts they are so helpful.
Great to hear others have done it. It gives me a great deal of hope.
The good news is, and I know it may just be fluids, but I weighed in at 95.7 today, after a fun run this morning and a long slow recovery run later this morning. Really very encouraging though. I don't feel dehydrated, but my quadriceps are stuffed after that fun run!Will be interesting to track my weight over the next few days/week or so and see how/if it bounces back. No doubt tonight I'll be back up to 100 again, but it will be interesting to see.
Didn't run as fast as I would've liked in the run mainly cos I ran really hard on Friday and was aching and tired from it still, and cos of nerves last night barely slept; was my first public run, but I made it. So I've got to give myself credit for a good start.
If I can aim for 1 fun run a month it should spurr me on to keep training, watching the calories, etc. Fun Runs plus the amazing recipes on this site! Wanna bloody try a few more of those!
