Thanks for the update, Clare, and please take good care of yourself. We'll await further progress messagesfrom you whenever you can manage.

I should have welcomed Tripp989 before now -- sorry and warmly welcome!

Always lovely to hear from Diane65 and hope you are enjoying your walks in the balmy February weather.

Hope all is going to plan, asamaic. Are you still volunteering at the ParkRun near you?

We've just set one up for kids. So I'm volunteering on Saturdays and Sundays now!

I had a massive breakthrough this year when I realised I didn't 'need' parkrun to run 5K anymore. If we're short on volunteers, I can volunteer and run 5K by myself afterwards. I can and do run outside of parkrun now. o/

(Admittedly, I'm still running very slowly, but as long as I'm moving forwards, it totally counts! o/ )

You are doing so well Asamaic with all your running - I can't run at all :oops:

I am pleased to say that I have lost another 4 lbs over the last 2 weeks :D So still need another 6lbs off before Durham - I am guessing that it will start slowing down the weight loss. I am on 1500 calories 2 days and 1200 5 days but need to get that to 1500 on one day and 1200 on 6 days - I was initially doing 1500 a day as was to big a jump for my stomach and my sanity. I am still doing my DVD 3 times a week, 2 x 2 mile walks and 45 minutes at the gym each week. On a Wednesday I do absolutely nothing apart from working 8-6.

How is everyone else getting on? Be good to hear from you all.

Your weight loss is brilliant, Diane65. Well done. o/

My weight is not shifting at all. Running is still going OK, albeit I'm being a bit cautious. The GP thinks I might have sports-induced asthma or just allergies to where I run, so I'm trialling an inhaler to see if it helps with my breathing or not.

Don't get me wrong, I'm perfectly safe to run the distances I do. It's just I might be able to run them more easily. We'll see.

Hope everyone is keeping well. Hope that your inhaler is working asamaic - you are doing brilliant keeping on running while trying out the new inhaler.

I have now managed to reduce my calories to the 1200 6 days a week and 1500 one day a week. Still doing the DVD 3 times a week plus the gym once and doing the 2 x 2 miles a week. Just been checking back and I used to do 4 miles not 2 last time I lost the weight so I need to increase that in a week or so. At the gym I am doing a mile fast walking plus a mile on an incline then 2km rowing. I really need to change the treadmill bit as I walk anyway so I will have a rethink. If anyone has any ideas how to shake it up a bit I will be grateful for any suggestions. I have no health issues so will give anything a go.

I'm pleased to say that I have lost another 4lbs in the last 2 weeks so 12lb in total. I was heavier than when I started last time so a long way to go.

How are you doing Clarebarr? Keep posting everyone.

Where has everyone gone? :confused: Please keep posting.

I have now lost 1 stone and feeling much healthier.

I have recently come across http://www.strongroots.com the pumpkin and spinach burgers in a bun with salad and a portion of sweet potato fries are only about 450 calories for the lot and so filling. I have had 3 spinach bites in a pitta bread with salad today with sweet chilli sauce -360 calories and I am seriously stuffed. I was trying to do lower calorie meals but was getting hungry especially as exercising everyday. I am still on the 1200 calories a day.

Good luck everyone

Hello! I hope everyone's been much better-behaved than me.

I've injured myself - again. Now seeing a physio to sort myself out. He's suggested that I join a gym to do stationary bike etc so I don't become completely unfit and TBH, there's no good reason for not following his advice. Hoping to sign up tomorrow... I have one in mind.

Have now been off running for... 3 weeks, I think? It's put a real crimp in my training plan!

Onwards and upwards though - I had a good physio session today and I'm hopeful of progress. I'm doing Durham parkrun in a few weeks one way or another. Given how slow I am running usually, it won't be a massive problem if I walk some of it.

Congratulations to Diane65 for the weight loss. You're doing amazingly well! :)
