I didn't start this running 'thing' with the intentions of using it to lose weight. I want to get in better shape, feel better and accomplish something just for me. If I lost weight along the way, great. Well, I haven't lost any. In fact, I've gained 2lbs. (probably from all that food from visiting my sister). That said, I probably need to start watching what I eat if I want to lose weight. Where is the fun in that though?
