    portion control, and exercise will help in losing weight, please intersperse running with strength training and rest , Eat wisely and you will reach your target goal. it takes about 6 weeks for you to see the results and 12 for others   happy running

    Focussing on consistency is more important than speed! add strength training on alternate days.. there are plenty of videos available on good posture while running.

    you don't have to be in pain when you are doing leg exercises. you can try using elastic bands and exercise with it and may be listen to your favorite music?

    Try it.  If you body is in need of  calories you will fill your "cotton" legs.
    Usually you need some calories but not very heavy in the stomach, hot cereal, banana, etc.
    I run after work, so I take simple snack before running and take my dinner after that.

    hi! Maizie.. Upper body strength training won't make you big, it will give you lean muscles. there are plenty of  exercises available online on upper body with or without weights, you can use stretchable bands, kettle bell or just dumbbells, of course you have to watch what you eat! there isn't anything like spot reduction.
