    Thank you for sharing your journey. I too am someone who hit rock bottom and now have a much healthier life. Running is my salvation and keeps me from sliding back. I’m training for my first marathon next year, and your blog is inspiring.

    Can I just ask, when you lost the majority of your weight, was it through running alone? Or did you have to make major changes to your diet?

    I know you went down the slimming world route eventually, but I hate healthy food, and I hate slimming world! I want to be able to eat what I like and loose through running. Is that even possible? I’m about 5 stone overweight and have always been fat, but not always this fat! Just to get 3 stone off through running alone would make me very happy but at the moment the longest I can manage is about 20 minutes running 85% of that time. I don’t go running frequently enough (twice a week on average at the moment) If I increased my running to a certain point, would I just loose without the dieting? Or am I living in a dream world?

      Sally lost most of it through Weight Watchers and I can’t say that I followed a healthy life style through that.

        Really? Last time I did weight watchers (something like 15 years ago) I was hungry and eating small meals all the time, mainly consisting of salad. Maybe it’s better now and I should have another look…
