    I decided I need a fitness goal to work towards (the goal being one of the reasons this diet has worked for me so far), so I decided to investigate a local run and emailed them, mentioned my weight at the start of the year and that I've lost loads and need a fitness challenge.

    Anyway, I received this reply:

    I've just emailed him to put myself forward!

    OMG

    What am I doing lol

    I hope they accept me, this would be brilliant!

    Crikey hun, theres no doing things by halfs is there! Ooooohh..... you could be a famous former fatty fitness freak, get in the papers and all sorts, how exciting, and good prospect for blowing cd's trumpet!
    Heck, on a serious note, well done... it takes some guts to put yourself out there in that way, and shows real commitment to the new way of life you are achieving. Not sure i could be so brave. xx

    Thanks all! Fingers crossed they'll take me on, I'll definately be pushing the CD angle if they do. I did mention that in my bio that I sent in, and included my 'before and now' picture from my album on here. Lol, hope it sways them rather than putting them off haha

    What are you doing?

    Taking on an exciting, healthy and challenging venture.

    And getting inspired with your fitness regime - I still haven't got up off my lazy backside to do any exercise snce starting CD - and certainly didn't do any before. I really should be following your example, even if it was a bit of power- walking.

    Good Luck, we will all be wanting to hear your progress!

    Thats fab Jim, good luck! Funnily enough I mapped out a run today, only 2.5 miles, something for me to aim for.......want to lose a couple more stones first, limit the damage on the old joints!

    Sounds like a sensible start Ruth!

    I'm not sure how I'll take to this running lark, with me doing interval training at the gym I've not ran for more than two minutes at a time...

    Small steps and build up, I guess

    Hey Jim Good luck with the running you'll be super fit in no time....If you're looking for training ideas the Virgin London marathon site has a great training schedule for all fitnesses. think it works on a 24 week training guide. starts at beginner (i downloaded that one:eek:) but is good for training towards any sort of run x
