Hi Everyone, I'm new to this website. I am 30 and have just started to get back into my running after having hip and hamstring problems for the past 2 yrs. After lots of physios, doctors and a couple of injections in my hip i'm finally able to run again, so i'm happy. I'm really only doing it to get fit and lose a few pounds at the moment but, i think i will start to get into doing a few charity races in the new year after my winter sports season. I think I need a bit of advice though. I have bought a fairly decent heart rate monitor and found out my training zones and have been training within those zones. My fitness seems to be vastly improving but I dont seem to be able to shift any weight. I eat properly and dont eat much in the evenings. I'm 88kg and want to get down to about 80kg. Any advice would be much appreciated. Cheers

I'd say just give it time. Having lost a lot of weight in my youth, it appeared to have its own momentum. Slow at start but then consistent. Plus, never eat bread or drink beer. Weight slides off. Stick to brown rice or something fancy-pants like cous cous or quinoa (if wallet allows). Vodka or gin if you want a booze. It's a difficult balance but carbs seem to be the worse for me and people I know trying to lose weight, despite the thing we all need if we're running regularly. Try filling up on a combo of vitamin C and iron instead to keep the gut satisfied. Good luck with it all, that's pretty amazing willpower to get running after a load of joint problems.
