Running

It's the latest craze, it seems, so I've jumped on the running bandwagon (would that be a treadmill?). Most of the skinny people I know don't just walk, they run. So I'm now convinced, since I've received a clean bill of health from my doctor, that I will take up running. I have never been able to run. EVER. I used to do a 20 minute mile in school. You can also see from my photo down below that I'm about 40 lbs overweight (I'm the blonde one.).

I've begun. I can now run 12 minutes! I walk the rest of it uphill on the treadmill and yesterday I was so sore I had trouble walking down the steps.

But I like being sore.

And I've weighed myself this morning and I've lost 2 pounds this week!

Let's see if I can continue!

You can run for me too, OK? LOL! I just hate running. I'll climb stairs, walk 14 laps, whatever - but not running. Keep it up! I'll be cheering for you.

Julie, I'm beginning to work out more too and try to lose the baby weight! Just put a ticker on the forum. I'm also trying to buy healthier foods and not eat such large portions! We should help each other!
Best of luck!
