Half a mile!!! may not sound like much but for me it was awesome!! I have never been able to run before. I tried a few months back but only got in a full minute before my lungs felt like they were going to collapse on me and i was going to die. I am used to using the elliptical, that's no problem for me i can go on that thing for hours and keep my heart rate above 150 the whole time. So this morning I decided to jump on the treadmill for the first time in about 6 months and I went right into running and kept on going and was soo amazed that I didn't feel like dying.. until about 6 minutes later at the half mile mark i had to stop. But i am very proud of myself for being able to get in half a mile right off the bat like that! I should also mention that i had spent 18 minutes on the stairmaster right before so some of my energy was depleted. Running made me feel great even though i could feel all of my fatness shifting around and probably looked really gross to watch. I think the elliptical is my gateway drug to which primed me for a possible addiction to running! My goal now is to run a full mile by the end of the month! emoticon

    That's great! I know what an accomplishment that is, great job!! I'm sure I'm not there yet, but I've been doing the walk, then jog as long as I can - not long, but I'll get there. I felt great on Sunday though when I did the jog and my now baggy jeans were falling down!! That was awesome in itself!

    Great job, keep it up!! You also look like you've lost weight since the last picture! I love to see the pictures along the way.
