Finally, I am prepared to say I run.

When I started on the 5th April I was 18st 4 with an ideal weight of around 14st.

I managed 20 min on the Eliptical trainer and 30min walk on the treadmill.

Then I found this site and read about runwalking so at weekends I added 1min run/1min walk for 30 mins to the above.

Today I weigh 17st 4!

I did 30min on the trainer at level 3 of 5, a 30min walk/incline program on the trainer and for the first time I ran continually for 30 mins at 5 mph. I even managed to up the pace to 6.2 for the last 2 mins.

Suffice to say I am over the moon.

Thanks for the support folks.

I am so pleased I am tempted to do another session this evening, but I keep berating Mrs Hrun for overdoing it as I need recovery time ready for tomorrow.

Addictive this exercise thing :huh:

Nice one Giles!

The only way is up ( a bit of a cliche i know but it is true)

Yeah, well done Giles, but with all the exercise you're doing the only way will be down (weight wise)!

Funny thing is the weight loss was a given to me.. Eat less crap + do more = Downsizing

The bit that has astounded me most was the fact that I ran non stop for 1/2 an hour. When I started I could not imagine running at all and it was as much as I could do to complete the treadmill session walking without a break.

But here I am, a runner :eek:

Well done, both on the running and the weight loss :d (though I know just what you mean when you say it's the running that feels like the achievement to you :))

Great work. Always good to see someone do so well and have loads of enthusiasm as a result.

Keep the great feeling of achievement in mind as you progrtess as it will get harder and harder to shift the pounds the more you progress. When this happens you will really need to focus on diet just as much if not more than exercise to reach your goals imo.

All the best
