I've lost about 20-30 pounds over the summer I need to lose more to be the healthy size I want to be. Its 1am I am full of stress I just want to go outside and run and keep running. Thats the only thing that helps me out when I am stressed.

I worked for many years as an over the road truck driver and had been slim most of my young life, but starting to drive over the road trucks in my early 20's i become less active and over weight, then I got out of driving and into factory work, it helped but it was not enough, still out of shape bad, I could not even do 10 push ups . it really began to take its toll on me, and by the time I was 45 and trained as a EMT(Paramedic) working and caring for people and seeing what my future was heading for I knew I had to make a change and a Lady I was dating helped to it was a team effort, we started doing a program by beachbody that her son had gotten and not used yet, P90x , it saved me and he from our selves it helped with diet and well the workouts were tough, I have since learned of some not so tough and work well for very overweight and out of shape.

You can try kayla itsines ebooks(: They're really effective in helping you tone up and lose weight just look at all the transformations!

Yes I read some books, but I feel like even articles online can help you out. Or if you watch youtube videos they tell very informative things.

Download my fitness pal on your phone and follow the instructions. I started 4 days ago and I've already lost a pound. Good luck!!!

if you run outside there is an app called runkeeper it tells you how many miles you run and how many calories you are losing! It really helps a lot!

I have that as well! I also have an app that gradually helps you run 5k!

Other seasons you are not able to shed those kilos away?

It snows a lot where I am from so it is hard for me to work out as much, and I prefer to workout outside than inside I like the fresh air.

Ohh ok that makes sense.. Best of luck in reaching your goal..

Thank you!
