50 yo Grandma

Good morning! Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the US. I will be doing w4d2 tomorrow and am loving this program. I'm so shocked that I'm actually able to do it. I sit all day at my job, was diagnosed with high BP 2 years ago and have gained about 20 lbs in those last 2 yrs. My motivation is to get off BP medication! Losing weight will be the icing on the cake. I enjoy reading these forums and look forward to chatting/encouraging with all of you more. ~CeCe

I am 53 years old. My husband and I had kids late in life. I have a 17 y/o daughter, and two boys 14 and 12. I work full time and have neglected myself. I am determined to get healthy. I have never been a runner so I am very nervous but ready to get started.

I am 51 and have 2 lids 22 and 14 i also neglected myself for a long time. This getting healthy and working full time is hard but i enjoy the time to myself. My mom is verry over weight and this has caused a lot of back and knee issues. She has arthritis to boot. I told my kids you have to help around the house more so i can have 30 min a day to either go run or to strength train.If i can do it you can do it. Welcome to running. go slow go get fitted for the right shoes at a real running store it makes a big difference. Keep posting that helps too.

Hi! It's so nice to hear from everyone. Thank you for posting. I wish I had time to workout more. I work 12 hour days, sitting to commute & sitting at a desk. I love this program so much because it doesn't require that much time & that way I know I can commit to it. I have 3 children. 30, 28 & 22 and one precious little 2y/o grandbaby. I'm getting ready to do w5d1. It's getting tougher but I will do it! Have a great day everyone!

Can I join the 50+ club too please? Medical referral 16 weeks ago to lose weight so I've been doing the gym and weight watchers. 21lb lost so far and I've just started to run and love it. Week 2 day 1 done today. My first target is to join the local park run. They do 5K in 3 laps so I thought I could go along and start with a lap. So that's my aim for the new year.

Welcome-it sounds like you have a plan. Running is mostly mental. Good luck.

Welcome to our very exclusive club, 49erfan ;). Your plan sounds like a great one just stick to it. It's so easy to come up with excuses. I think part of the reason I haven't skipped any runs yet is because the program is not that many weeks until you're through it. I'm very goal oriented so....it helps me with determination. I just completed w6d1 this morning. So proud of myself!!! I did the LONG run yesterday and got through that too! Keep us posted with your progress.
