Today I have been searching the internet looking for a diet and fitness programme that is designed around beginners; we all have to remember that this is a yearlong challenge/project.  At the end of the day I am 22 stone, if I jumped in and started killing myself I would soon lose heart and interest. I am fully committed to this being a slow start and building it up over the whole year. All efforts lead to the final push, if you haven’t noticed by now I love Blackadder, so visualise the final episode of Blackadder goes forth. One whole year till I go over the top, although I think I will have to jump the trench quite a lot over the coming months.

The only exercise I enjoy is the 3 minutes of disappointing the missus every couple of days. If you are overweight you are much more likely to cause injury to yourself if you jump in at the deep end. As I write I am watching “The Biggest Loser” on ITV, if you haven’t seen it, they have taken 6 overweight/obese adults and the aim is to lose the most weight in the quickest amount of time. Now I’m sure they have experts advising on the show etc, but everything I read points towards not going full throttle straight away. On the show they are practically killing them. One guy who is a good foot shorter than me weighs 28 stone; he has put on 10 stone in 4 years. They are making his physically sick with what they are putting him through; I don’t think this sets him up to carry on the lifestyle change in the long run. I think you have to enjoy exercise if you are to carry it on and enjoyment is not something I notice on the show. They look ready to commit murder. Throw in 2 trainers that look like they didn’t make the marines, but only for failing the personality test then you have everything you need for a programme. Finish the show, lose 4 stone in 1 day and everyone goes home happy. My feeling is that in 3 months the weight will be back on and lifting the remote control will again be the daily exercise routine of choice.

After an extensive search of fitness programs for the large, they all recommended a visit to the doctor for a health check before you start. So I will make an appointment and take it from there. Everything is still all geared up for the 13th May…..

After 6 days writing this blog i have found myself onto the Google listings, search “real fat boy run” or “the real run fat boy run” among others and there i am!! Brilliant!! Which means i should now start to receive some organic traffic to the blog, which is the only way it will grow. Starting on the 23rd April my view numbers have gone; 6, 15, 96, 131, 102 and today so far its on 20. I cant really argue with that can i…..?

Today is a recovery mission to get back friendly with my girlfriend, we had a bit of a tiff last night. You don’t need to know the details, but its a long running disagreement between us that usually ends with the same result, me getting a smack!!  To be honest i think she is scared of me losing the 6 stone, being fit to die for and attracting the glares of many more women folk… But i might be wrong so don’t tell her i said that!! I must still be in the bad books because its 1.17pm and i still haven’t had any dinner…..

Depending on how well you know me, you will either be happy or upset to know that the Vietnamese River Cobbler (Pongas) did not kill me. BUT…. I did have my appendix out 3 weeks ago and my other half still thinks its a good idea to punch me square in the belly button. So i do have a pain there this morning, time will tell if its the fish of little motorbikes or punch of little girlfriend. Her excuse is that I’m tall and she is not (i am 6ft 6 and weigh 22 stone, she is 5ft 1 and weighs 6 stone) so when she punches me its the only place she can reach, I’m yet to be convinced. But giving the final words to the fish..It was very nice!

15 days to no more cigarettes and my legs moving for more than a trip to the fridge….

Toodlepip.
