    Would really appreciate some advice please im doing really well on Slimming World, losing weight and seeing results by exercising. Ive built myself up over a couple of months to run 15 mins on treadmill but the day after feeling like i cant be bothered and that my bones ache dont hurt just ache. I dont want to give up exercising because im really enjoying it but how do i get rid of the "knackered" feeling.

    How many times a week are you exercising?

    When I first started working out after a period of no exercise I ached all over. I found after a while my body had 'got used' to it and I didn't ache quite so much. You might just need some time to adjust.

    As above, your body will just be getting used to the extra workout. I take my aching body as a sign of a job well done! (Or not enough stretching ;))

    What helped me was having a little snack before exercise like a banana or some fruit/oakcakes that I would work into my daily calories so I didn't undo my work so that I felt I had more energy to work out.

    And like the others said, stretching so important...

    Then finally, I realised I had to sleep more, it's not just about the whole tiredness thing but your body repairs itself when you sleep.

    That's my two pennies, hope it helps!
