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!"

Comment: I worked a little harder at tracking food and calories this week. I was able to not eat into the late evening hours on a couple of nights. That definitely helps. I really didnt run this week. I managed to sneak in a run this afternoon though. Its really exciting to see the number going down, albeit slowly! Inching closer and closer to that maintaining point.
