    I started my running journey in April 2011 with the C25K program. This was huge for me to start this program. I hated running, loathed it actually. I even turned around and went back home one morning at 5 a.m. after driving to Kickboxing class a few years ago because they were running to warm up.

    I run as often as I can as well as do walks, weights, toning exercises, the bike and elliptical but by far, running is now what I LOVE! Because I have fibromyalgia, there are weeks at a time when I am just in too much pain to work out at all but, as soon as I can I get back at it. I have lost 30 lbs. and am healthier and more fit than I have been since I was 16 years old. I still have a way to go on my journey. Although I am now back in the weight and BMI that I should be for my height, my goal is to lose 20 more lbs. and to run a half marathon.

    I truly believe that if I can do this....so many of you CAN to. I hope this picture of my transformation inspires or motivates you today. :run

    Wow! Look at you GO! You look amazing Neenee. Congrats on your health transformation!
    It's been my goal to get off my butt this year and I've been doing good with various workouts but so far I've been too scared to try running. You may have just inspired me to reconsider :D

    Amazing! Way to go! I love seeing before and after pictures like that! I'm working on the same thing right now. I'm down 13 pounds since Jan, but I can't stand to run. I used to run track so you'd think it would be a natural fit, but I'm really digging the Jillian Michaels DVDs, plus walking and biking. We ride bikes as a family pretty much everywhere all summer long, so I'm thrilled that it's getting warmer outside!

    You look amazing, so I can totally see that your hard work is paying off in a big way! Hooray! :clap

    Wow, thank you girls! You made me feel so good!

    Karen, that is awesome about your weight loss. I have a total love/hate relationship with Jillian. I curse her every time I do one of her workouts! LOL Whatever works for you and gets you active and burning calories is a good thing!
