  1. Hi there! Congratulations and go you for making this huge change! I'm also doing this for my daughter who is 4. Long term overweight, and my father died of obesity related stroke 2 years ago. I'm determined to be here for my daughter as long as I can! Today was my first day but I've also been working on changing my eating habits for a couple weeks first. I'm doing mostly okay. I'm also taking duromine and getting help from my doctor ☺. Myfitnesspal is the best app it let's me log everything I'm doing and eating. I also have a pedometer app that I used before the c25k one. I bought a fitbit too (although it's missING since we moved a month ago). I found the pretty piece of tech was a great motivator to increase my steps when I go walking during the day. Keep it up and you will be amazing!! Xox
  2. Hey there! I have a bad yoyo style history with fitness and eating well. Been big and fat my entire life. And seriously determined to make a change. With the extra weight, my asthma, and lack of fitness, I'm expecting a challenge but totally up for it. My husband is coming along for the ride and encouraging me so much it's amazing. Today we started week 1 day 1. However I was only able to do half of the jogging at a slow speed. Not discouraged however! My plan is to repeat day 1 until I can complete it the entire way, before moving onwards! Anyone else out there really big and doing this for the first time? Any advice for the extra weight? I'm very mindful of strain on my joints especially knees so advice on how to minimise that would be great. And how do you motivate yourself in this heat? This aussie summer sure has hit early this year ☺
