Back to winning ways

Hello. I didn’t realise how much I had let myself go and then when I turned 60 in June I was invited to my gp’s surgery for a free health check.

I failed miserably on all counts the only positive was I am a non smoker. Since then I have been on a diet and light exercise programme and have lost 44 pounds in weight and am currently on week 3 of the couch to 5k.

I cannot begin to describe how much better I feel I really do have much more energy and no aches and pains.

I have gone From a 44” waist to 36” and feeling fitter all the time.

I have to return to the gp in January for a further assessment so hopefully I’ll get a few more positive results instead of the telling off I got back in June.

My wife is a nurse so I at least know my bp is improved.

    SharonMc That's a great improvement all round Terry - well done! As the others have said log your runs on read morehere and you'll get lots of encouragement, another idea is when you've built up the distance a little (don't know how far you are going at the moment) is to find your local park run, they are a great way to start the weekend with lots of likeminded people :)
