Follow Me In My Determination To Change
I thought if I shared my journey I would be more likely to succeed.

Today my Corporate Challenge Team reached 7,000,000 steps.
There are 7 in the team so I guess that means that on average I have hit the 1,000,000.
Not really true I am not the worst but not the best either, and when I look at my actual figures I am closer to 750,000; but still very proud.

In total, you've single-handedly walked 430km and in the process burnt off 112,934 kilojoules of energy. Your average daily step count is now 11,203 and on one amazing day you reached your personal best of 14,484. This is an excellent first 8 weeks and I'm delighted with this performance. Have a think now about what you'd like to achieve in the second half. Can you match this? Why not beat it? I know you have lots more to give and I believe you are ready to fly even higher.

Well bringing my trainers on this trip was a waste of suitcase space. I haven’t been once. The walking is doing ok but the gym is sadly missing, I just haven’t had time. my friend Kuassi has made the gym most days but I think he doesn’t sleep at all. Need to work hard when I get home in a week.

Although my type of surgery, a gastric sleeve, means I can absorb all food, I do have to be careful about what I eat to try and get all the nutrients I need naturally. For the first year at least I am taking vitamin supplements, and now I think I actually rattle. Still small price to pay. I have had a flare up of excema on my forehead and behind my ears which the specialist thinks happened because I got anaemic after the surgery. So again not directly linked to dieting but a side effect of the op. I hope it gets in check, but rather that than diabetes or heart problems which the weight loss makes less likely

At a hotel this week, and according to both sets of scales in the gym, I have actually lost weight, so perhaps my home scales are just on strike!
So feeling a little better and in the Global Corporate Challenge where I am aiming for 10,000 steps a day I have an average of 11,000 and have completed a total distance of 319km which to me is amazing.
