    40 not fatty

    Hi everyone, Since I had my second child 5 years ago, I've gained 25 pounds. I was running 5ks after I had her but completely stopped exercising and am eating terribly. Party over. In May I turn 40, and have made it my goal not to enter my 40th year unhealthy and the heaviest weight I've ever been in my life. I'm only in day 2 of week one, but for me, getting started is the challenge. I look forward to running in this healthy journey with you all!

  2. That's perfect! You want to shoot for 1-2 pounds a week. If your in that range you are mostly burning fat cells. If you lose more than that then it is likely that you are losing muscle mass (bad!!). Keep doing what your doing and stay in a caloric deficit. As long as you burn more calories than you take in you will continue to lose weight!

    Im 42 and my 2nd child was born 6yrs ago and I too was exercising...do great! Then I experienced some bad parts of life and just seemed to not have recovered. So came stress, emotional eating...and so came the weight and more weight! My body began to ache and hurt like never before. SO..in May of 2017....I got tired and a lil fearful of what I was doing to my body. I started using this app and a complete life style change in eating, out look on life, etc. Im on week 3 day 3. Im down 22lbs, fell off during the Hurricane Harvey event (emotional eating) but as of 3 days ago Im back running with t

  4. I'm enjoying the run, although I've only run alone up until this weekend. My husband and I ran together 2 days and I found it much more enjoyable! I've only lost 3.5 lbs in almost 3 weeks though. I've never had to lose weight prior to this, so I'm not sure if that's a healthy gradual loss or perhaps I should do something differently.

    How to add my settings?

    Hi everyone, I'm just started with C25K, but I don't understand where I can put my personal setting (like weight, height, age ...) Could you please help me? Thank you in advance for your support! Susy

    Nice work! Today I'm not using the app, but streamed a video on YouTube, tomorrow will be my day 3. I'm already feeling better about myself and motivation is high! Keep moving!

  8. Totally agree that repeating is not a step back. You are still moving and that is the goal.

  9. Hi Redneckbooda, the obvious is to set a daily calorie goal and work to meet that goal each day. 5 days ago I set a goal of 1200 calories a day and each day I blew through that goal by like 1600 calories over but each day I blew through it a little less by a few calories. To me that's a win! I also started to weigh myself every morning as soon as I brush my teeth. I write the date and weight and put it away in my bathroom cabinet. Why everyday? Well I read it's better for me to weigh myself every morning before I start my day as a reminder of my commitment to do better today! Each day you get

  11. I would stay with week 3 and try to complete it. Do not worry about the distance, just stay steady, distract yourself with music and put one foot in front of the other.
