I'm right there with ya Susie! I have done day 1 of week 5 THREE times!! I am finally moving onto day 2 tomorrow (or the next day if work is too crazy).
One thing that has surprised me is that even when I don't think I can make the increase, if I just try, I am able to do it. *of course I still did W5D1 3 times

The fact that this program slowly increases your endurance so that you can do more than you could imagine is one of the things that keeps me coming back for each workout. Another thing is that I have lost 3 3/4 inches in a month!!!!!

Good for you! That's awsome! I'm going to pull out a measuring tape today and start measuring myself... it might be more encouraging than the scale. I will say that on Boxing Day i bought a pair of jeans that were way too small..... but they were on sale for $20 (from $120) i figured they would fit someday...lol. Last night we went out for dinner and I WORE THEM! Ok they were still a tad tight but still!!!

I do that too!! i bought a pair of khaki pants that were on sale and they were VERY tight (and just plain uncomfortable). That was 3 weeks ago and now they fit perfect!
For me the scale has only registered a one pound loss but I have noticed a big difference in my size.
I measure once a month *officially* but if I haven't seen the scale move in a while then I will pull out the measuring tape and see if there is progress anywhere else. It is a really good motivator!!

My scale is evil. I'm sure it's possessed by some sort of weight demon. The demon only likes men because my husband can sneeze and lose 20 lbs..... ARGGGGGGGGGG

Okay I am back after a week of nasty ice and everything being shut down even the gym. I did Week 4, but am going to repeat Week 4 again since I have had a week off. That is a week off with no exercise, I hope I can get back on track!

Okay girls here is some motivation. My neighbor ran the Houston Marathon in 3hrs and 12min to qualify for the Boston Marathon. I don't think I will ever be at that point, but great motivation!

Just started Week 1 again, as i don't feel ready to get onto Week 2 yet! last week I generally had to walk for longer than 90s to get my breath back for the running again, but today i did it in time! woo hoo!!

and well done by the way girlies, especially with fitting into smaller clothes.... i was disappointed that even though i'd been eating well and running that i'd put on a pound, however i thought i'd do what you'd done and try on some jeans i had that i knew i couldn't fit into anymore, and i can fit into them again!!!
i'm estatic!!!

Well, I have been so busy at work that I haven't gone to the gym since last Saturday. I went today after work and was able to do W5D2! I really thought that after that much time off I would really feel horrible while I was running but I ran for 8 MINUTES STRAIGHT!! TWICE!!
I was giddy (and panting) when I finished.

How is everyone else doing?

So I was able to finish my repeat of W5D2 today. I think I will do it one more time before giving W5D3 a shot - that one is 20 minutes of straight running.
