I was so happy to see this thread. I am currently in week 2 of the couch to 5k program and I would like to know that it gets better and that at the end of all this I will lose some weight. I decided to do the program because I want to become a runner and I want to become more fit and stronger. I am also at my plateau. I have lost 20 pounds already and would like to lose 15-20 more and everything else was not working.
I enjoy it so far and already see myself repeating weeks because I'm struggling to keep up with the minute and a half runs.
