Fat Girl Hates Running But Now Wants To!

Recommended Posts

I have ALWAYS HATED running! But as I've become more obese over the years I am wishing I could run. I have two young teens that I can't keep up with. They like to go out...and I don't - not in my current physical condition. 5'8" 320 lbs. For my build 180 is healthy. That's 140 lbs overweight! I'm carrying myself plus a whole other human being. :( Its time to change and get to moving! :)

 

I am a single Christian paraprofessional (finance and accounting) mom. I don't have any family and my circle of friends is very small. And they do not have the same goals health wise at this point. I am hoping to connect with others that are like minded for mutual support/encouragement/accountability.

 

Wishing each of you success in all your endeavors! :)

Hi there and welcome! I've always hated running as well but as I've progressed with the program I'm beginning to enjoy it. earlier in the program, When I did struggle(and trust me there were plenty of those moments) I would be constantly praying and asking God's Strength to keep me from passing out!

 

Looking forward to reading about your progress and all your successes and God bless!! You can do this, just keep putting one foot infront of the other!! ◡̈

I use to love to be active and a small at 140. However, life happened and now I'm 231. This past year, I turned 30 and only recently made the decision to get back in shape. Only thing missing is a lack of support group. Good luck to everyone in there fitness goals for 2016.

Hi Newlife! :)

 

Congrats on making the decision to get active and healthy! :)

 

I understand life happening all too well and I totally get the need for support/encouragement/ and accountability in those moments.

 

I'm just beginning my journey as well, but I am here if/when you need me. :)

 

Best Wishes! :)

Hi. Im new here too. Just started at the gym a couple of weeks ago, but really want to lose my baby weight this year. I'm 101.3kg and would love to get to approx 70kg. I am going to do the C25K before I do my weight training 3 days a week and look at other cardio on the other 2 days. Hoping to get some inspiration and encouragement.

Hey all, so I have not been running. However, I am walking/fast walking. Baby steps. I do have a suggestion for everyone. So I know I need to lift weights but I hate dumbbells. Therefore, I got kettlebells. Omg my arms are a little sore just from the 5 lb weight. I found an app on my phone to show me the exercise and it works great. Plus there are exercise for a total body workout as well. Thought you guys might like to know.

 

Good luck

Linsey
