My elbow seems better today so I'm hoping I'll be able to get back to the Shred this week. I'll definitely take it easier this time as far as weights go, even though 3lb weights don't seem like enough. May even do cans again to start with, just to be on the safe side.

    Foodwise I've been doing mostly okay with occasional blips, they happen more often than I'm happy with but I refuse to let them get me off track overall. I'm determined that I will get to where I want to be and stay there!
    Great you got the bike hope your OH can sort it out for you

    Glad your elbow is feeling abit better and your thinking of getting back on the shred just take it easy and if you need to go to cans do it hun its better then not doing it at all and i know if it was me i'd be itching to get back to it lol

    As for food hun we have a long journey ahead of us with many ups and downs to come the most important part is not letting it overcome us and you sound as if your not letting it with your determination! stay strong you can and are doing this xx

    Oh man yes I hate it every day that I can't do it!! LOL I never thought I could say it about any exercise but it's soooo addictive, I think it's because of the quick results, that just motivates you so much doesn't it. Really being overly keen is what got me into this spot I think, as I continued for a couple days even despite the pain, probably made it worse than it might have been. Silly me!

    The bike is functional and... I can't go more than 5 minutes at a time LOL. How pitiful :P So far today I've done two sessions of that and the 1 mile walk, I think that may well be it...

    I have a new goal! My parents have invited OH and me to join them on holiday in Spain mid-May. We haven't yet seen each other this year and they don't know I'm losing weight, so I want to really surprise them. Not to mention there may be swimsuit weather! Ideally I'd love to fit back into my size 16 jeans by then, although I don't know how realistic that may be. It's only 3 months away!

    Yay about the bike, 5 minutes is 5 minutes more movement then before you had the bike hun every little helps, try to add a minute each day or every other day and before you know it you will be there for ages also check that you havent got the tension to high. I find on mine i start at 3 then after 10mins go to level 5 for 5 mins and then bring it back to level 3.

    A lovely goal to aim for sunny spain I think you will be able to get nearly 2 stone off by then hun keep positive and keep that swimsuit image in your head lol and the jeans are you in a size 18 at the mo? You will smash it hun 3 months has got to be a stone and a half fingers crossed . xxx

    I'm back to the Shred! Woohoo! I haven't quite figured out whether I'm starting from scratch again or hopping right back in. Yesterday level 1 was ok, today I'm going to try level 2 and see if my elbow can handle it and if my stamina hasn't fallen too far behind during the break. I hope not, I've been walking and/or pedalling every day.

    Thanks for your support muppet I appreciate it a lot! Now to catch up with your adventures

    So here I am nearly 2 years on. My injury was still there and so it was a great excuse to drop off the wagon... So much so that I've added 6lbs to my starting weight I really hope I can make a better go of it this time round. I just started C25K, although it was tempting to give up halfway through and I felt I was dying, I actually made it all the way through the first one I'd like to go back on the Shred too, cause I really enjoyed it, but I'm scared I will injure myself again. I don't know what I did wrong last time but I was in a lot of pain for weeks.

    Thank you ladies! People I hung around with last time seem mostly gone so it's nice to see someone's ready to support me Much appreciated!

    C25k is short for Couch 2 5k - a free program of mixed walking/running that aims to have you running continuously for 30 mins or 5km at the end of 9 weeks. Look it up! I was a bit skeptical because of my weight and absolutely zero fitness, but I actually managed to push all the way through the first time - even though onlookers may have been excused for thinking I was dying and my walking sections were anything but 'brisk'

    Sooo I was expecting STS for the first week but instead I lost 5 lbs! Wooohooo!

    Second C25k was just as hard as the first... still finished it though so I'm happy.
