Hello Everyone. I am very happy today because I just as I was searching google for a fitness forum I realized this app had one!
To introduce myself. My name is Ashley, I'm 21, and getting married on July 4th this year. I am about 210 pounds and way out of shape.
3 years ago in high school I played basketball and softball I also worked out of the gym for an hour a day lifting weights. I was never "skinny" but I ran for about 3 hours a day at practice and gym class so I was in SHAPE.
After high school, the weight gain began. No more basketball and softball, no more mandatory gym class. I couldn't eat whatever I wanted and not gain weight anymore.
Now, 3 years later I don't feel happy with myself anymore. I have tried C25K once before but was very discouraged by how tired I was during week one. It just feels so strange to me to run and be out of breath and have my muscles burning.
I guess I'm just looking for support and encouragement during these next 6 months as I try and lose weight for my wedding.
