Awesome work! I hated running my entire childhood too, and only in 8th grade was a I vindicated when diagnosed with asthma. Even with the help of an inhaler, I still hate endurance runs, but I LOVE doing sprints. So, there's something out there for every non-runner to learn to not hate it :) I love the idea of the zombie app. Also, you've inspired me to go try on some of my old dresses!

Congratulation on the first weight drop! However small YOU think it is - it is a drop.I think that having you self (the pic) as an inspiration is a brilliant idea - you don't have to guess how you would look when you reach a goal!As you I have inspirational pics of me from August (I made a collage) on every screen I have - to keep me going. Keep up the momentum! No shortcuts! No excuses! You got it girl!
