Ok I guess I never did a Bio!
My name is Lesley, I will be 30 in June. I have 2 wonderful kids, a 10 year old son and a 4 year old daughter. I teach preschool during the week as well. I have ALWAYS been over weight, and every few years go through a motivated time, but I always fall off track.
My problem is less eating everything and more not eating enough.
I desperately want to lose weight, I am SO very tired of being fat! I would love to lose another 20 pounds before I turn 30. However I am starting with mini goals, I want another 10 pounds gone ASAP! We shall see!
I would love motivation helping friends on here so please friend me if you want!

Oh the heat...
i completely understand! I live in houston and we are in extreme drought conditions and we've hit 90+ degree weather. I personally LOVE the heat and sunshine, however I find it much more difficult to run in! Especially when you factor in humidity from the gulf! UGH fun! I dont have any advice, I try to run later at night when its not so hot, but I work in the yard, hike, bike ride etc, during the day and just drink more water and dont push myself as hard. I've told myself its ok for the same workout to take a little bit longer as long as it keeps me from dying! But I do hate that its dropped my running pace down. Its just so hard to do! Keep drinkin the water and take more breaks

running help
awesome, thanks guys. I did end up taking 2 days off last week. I am trying really hard to force myself to take today off too. its been a full week since I had a day off so, its time.
Yesterday I ran to my own music instead of the c25k program and found I did better than I do when I follow the program. I ran much mure than I walked, I still did a warm up and cool down too. But now that puts me in a spot cause I dont know if I should keep going with the program or do it on my own ya know? All of my runner friends just listen to their own tunes and just kinda run till they need a break.
I dont know!
Thanks for the socks tips though. I did change socks and havent had a blister since the first one! yay! and as soon as I lose a little more i will go get some cotton free clothes too!, so far it seems my boobs are losing the most! rrrrr.... Sad but My jeans did fit a bit better yesterday and a few ladies at work commented to that effect. I guess I am building muscle!
Thanks for the help!

Jillians Michaels' whey protein?
i know this is somewhat off topic, but I have a real problem eating breakfast in the morning and eating enough calories for the day. I have been told by various people to try protien shakes but when I look at the info on them some of them sound scary, too many calories fat etc. I want to lose weight not bulk up like a fighter. I am also training for a 5k in septemeber and have been doing alot of running. anyone have any suggestions or thoughts?
thanks yall!
