Hey everyone, I'm new here. I finally got my fat butt into gear in March and started walking/watching what I eat and am down 35lbs in total since then. About two months ago I started working on running (well, jogging) and I'm trying desperately to get to a point that I can say I'm a runner. I can jog just over 1km now before having to stop to walk for a few seconds. I know, not much progress happening on the jogging, but I'm trying.
I still have about another 10 pounds or so to go, I'm not sure, I'll consider myself maintaining when my belly is flat and I can get my calves into a pair of tall boots.
At any rate, onto my questions.
Since losing the weight, some of it has come off in some places that I'm not so thrilled with...I know there's nothing I can do about my poor chest shrinking
but my butt, which always used to be quite nice if I do say so myself now looks quite flat and downright deflated.
Sorry if that's a bit TMI.
*sigh* I've been doing some butt workouts but I don't really seem to be sore the next day after doing them. Does that mean they aren't strenous enough for me and aren't going to work? Does a person have to be sore the next day to build muscle? Will I ever get a cute little round butt again by doing butt workouts or has gravity gotten the best of me for good?
Oh and also for the runners out there....do you EVER get to a point in the running that your legs stop aching, you know...that whole muscle memory thing?
