Next Step in My Journey


Recommended Posts

Hello, I started C25K last week as another step in my weight loss/fitness journey. Long story short, I had weight loss surgery in 2010, lost 100 lbs, kept it off for a while, never reached my goal though,  and eventually gained back 61.5 lbs. April 2016 I started a plan to lose the regain. The regain was gone in 4 months, hit the 100 lb lost mark (again) in 7 1/2 months, lost another 18 for good measure and have been maintaining 118 lbs lost (165 since surgery) for 4 months now. Last year while I was actively losing, I focused on cardio by walking, gradually increased my distance from 2.5 miles to 6 by the time the weather turned too cold to walk outside. This year I have been focusing on building upper body strength and developing muscle at the gym with a weight program but found that I needed some kind of tangible goal to work toward to keep myself on both track food-wise and exercise-wise.  I'm one that likes a variety to keep things interesting. I did a 5k 6/3 with no training, just having walked my normal routine and adding in a bit of jogging with a goal to run at least part of each mile. I was successful with that, and have signed up for more 5k's and want to improve my time and increase the running to walking ratio. I started Week 2 this morning and am loving it so far.
