Default I am totally new...and fat

But don't feel sorry for me because TODAY I have decided to do something about it, about moi:

I am a 249 lb. student/legal assistant and I have been fat my whole life, about two weeks ago I decided I wanted to be a runner and so I started the popular Couch to 5K program and it kind of suck because well...I'm so fat and my lungs and heart have to work extra hard. I have been trying to eat better but not a serious effort, so I decided that I need a little help and motivation so instead of listening to people who are already skinny and have been so their entire life (I mean seriously, what can you tell me trainer girl at gym who hasn't weighed more than 110 lbs. in your whole life?) I would come to people who are in the struggle, or have been and kicked fat's ***. So here I am, all 249 lbs of me and I am ready for this!

Oh yea, my first 5k is January 8, 2011 and I will be there running, come **** or high water...

Welcome! You definitely came to the right place! I think you'll love it here. Yeah, I can totally relate to not wanting advice from someone who has been perfectly skinny their entire life!

Though our starting weights were different, I taught myself to run over the past few months and it was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I'm still not "good" at it but seeing my abilities improve exponentially has been monstrously rewarding!

I believe in you, you can do it too!
