Just wondering if anybody might be able to offer me some advice about something that has given me a bit of concern lately......
In the last two weeks I've had no fewer than 5 or 6 people comment about my weight. Don't get me wrong, it's lovely to hear compliments from friends saying 'ooh you are looking slim these days' but I'm worried about losing anymore. I run because I enjoy it and have ambitions of one day running a marathon (the furthest I've done so far is a half-marathon). But I'm certainly not speedy and I don't do an excessive amount of exercise (run 3 or 4 times a week, one gym session a week for core work/strength training).
The weight-loss just doesn't seem to add up when you consider the number of miles I run (no more than 25 miles a week) and the amount of food I eat (bloody loads!). I eat three good meals a day and try to snack on calorie dense foods and things such as nuts and seeds. I've switched from semi-skimmed to full fat milk and believe I eat a varied diet. I indulge in chocolate and sweets just as much as the next person too.
I'm not worried about the weight I'm at now, but I just worry that if I wanted to begin a marathon training schedule that I would lose too much. Any advice much appreciated
