Quoting Audrey&& Addi :" <blockquote><b>Quoting #3 is on the way!:</b>" You don't need to be skinny to go jogging ... [snip!] ... I'm to embarassed to go jogging outside now because I'm 208 and 5'3 no one wants to see all that jiggle"
When I started running I was heavier than that. I started running 3-5 miles a day and got down to 170 in a short time, and kept going to my goal weight. If I was so concerned about what other people thought I would probably still be huge, maybe even bigger. Honestly when I see heavy people running the last thing I'm thinking is omg look at all that fat, instead I smile and think good for you for taking care of your health. If you want to run, do it, don't let anything stop you.
