I was sleeved on dec 10th 2018 and am only walking 30mins a day Sent from my SM-G965F using BariatricPal mobile app

It time now to start training for a 5k. Instead of walking 30 minutes everyday, start this. Walk 10 minutes, jog 30 seconds, repeat 3 times., Just three times in a week. Next week, walk 9.5 minutes, jog 60 seconds and repeat three times ...

Slowly reduce the walk times, and or increase the jog times, and over the course of a couple, 3 or 4 months, you'll be running a 5K.

But always stay under 30 minutes. Eventually when you run the entire 30 minutes (after a warm-up) increase the time until you cover a 5k. This is how people train for a "couch to 5k.". If you can walk it, you can jog it.

If I could do it, ANYONE CAN (without medically damaged knees). Loosing weight actually helped my knee problem and made running even easier.

Remember if you still look cute at the end of an exercise session you may not be training hard enough.

Cheers! Walk as much as you can (but don't overexert yourself, of course!) Every little bit counts!

Keep up the good work! Every action counts especially walking, whether it be 30 minutes or an hour, it helps. Move you closer to your goal.
