    Default Ran my first 5k this past weekend.

    3 years ago I weighed in around 230-235 my BP was up Blood test showed bad cholesterol up triglycerides up. My doc told me I would need to go on meds soon if I did not make a change.

    Started working out, weight training, jogging, biking every machine at the gym.
    Had my share of set backs, minor injures and just plain old laziness at times.
    I could not have ran for more 10 minutes when I started. Finished the 5k in 29 minutes not that fast but not that slow either.

    Just turned 45 I weigh 190, still need to lose about 10 more to be where I want to be. My blood work is great now my doc is very happy. (and my wife to).

    I don't post a lot here but I do read a lot, and you guys have kept me going at times.

    So thanks!

    Good for you!!

    I'm 40, also 190lbs and would also love to get back down to 180. My GF isn't sure I should though.......
    Always give two warning shots. Both in the chest.

    If you are turning 9 1/2 minute miles at 190lbs, that's not too bad.

    I'm not that far ahead of you at 8 1/2 minute mile average, and I'm 160lbs!
