Here's the skinny: I've been near 300 lbs. for years and need to lose weight. I'm married to a wonderful lady, and we have a family. One of our boys often asks if I'll run with him. I've always had to tell him, "No." In August of '09, my wife learned about a couch-to-5k running program, and I agreed to try it with her. This blog chronicles our progress on that training program. I hope I'll soon be able to surprise my son by telling him, "Yes, I'll go running with you!"

Its tough

I really want to run but I cant .... these two weeks are going to go by slow!. I can walk as I feel able to. I feel fine in that regard, its just a matter of getting up early enough to get out. The weather has been so hot and humid, that early morning really is the only chance to get out to exercise. And with having had surgery this week, well, Im just more tired.

So hopefully this next week, I can get some good walks in and keep my body moving and active. I expect my weight to be up this week. Many factors such as surgery, overeating, water weight and lack of exercise to name a few. Ill weigh in today anyway.

There are going to be weeks where Im sidelined for whatever reason, Im trying to look at this as training for those periods. I need to learn how to eat even if I cant get out and exercise!

Keep on running folks
Mrs. F
