In an ever changing society, it is important to keep in touch with what is truly important in life. You are not what you own nor your position in society. You are a human being with a soul, like all others, walking along a path on this journey called life. Hopefully, this blog can be of some support. You do not have to struggle alone along this path.

First session ...


Well, I had to postpone the start of my challenge due to catching hand, foot and mouth (not to be confused with foot and mouth) and impetigo. Apparently, there is an epidemic here in Spain this year of the former although both are very rare in adults. It just proves, once more to me, how volatile our bodies truly are.

However, the ladies have kept me busy filling in forms and questionnaires and more forms and more questionnaires. Something I noticed quite prominently was my reluctancy to fill them in. I dilly dallied over them for quite some time. I’d pick them up, read them, put them down and move onto something else. I had to really force myself to sit down and complete them. Then, I caught myself questioning the relevance of some of the questions and why they needed me to answer them all, and every time I thought that, I would put the questionnaires down and move on to something else.

The irony is that when I sent one of the questionnaires back to my nutritionist Jenna, I had completed it wrong. So, that speaks for itself. Needless to say I had to do it all again.

All was not lost though. On thursday, this week, I had my first session with coach, Christine Anne Platel. Amid a little apprehension, nervous tension, a few tears and bit of laughter, it’s amazing what came to light.

It never ceases to amaze me how one little episode in someone’s childhood can make a huge difference to the grown adult; especially when you believe you’ve dealt with that issue in the past. Or, maybe it’s been blocked out of memory as a coping mechanism. As human beings we’re very resilient creatures.

Physically, emotionally and psychologically we arm ourselves with whatever defence mechanisms seem appropriate to deal with difficult situations and selective memory is definitely one of our best friends - to a point.

Ultimately though, it would appear that it doesn’t matter if we choose to conveniently forget things because sooner or later they will come back to bite us in the rear and when they do, the sting lasts a while. But, you know what, a sting fades quicker than holding on to the guilt, the sadness, the anger, repression, oppression and so on. All these negative emotions linger and linger … and eventually accumulate within the body and pile on around our waistline with every mouthful of self-loathing and lack of self-respect.

Oh well … time to move forward …

The iTalkFM challenge has been launched


?If I was your age and your size, I?d take the stairs. I wouldn?t use an elevator to go up one floor. I?d be keeping fit? is what a little old lady said to me, in an elevator encounter, a few weeks after I fell 200 meters off a mountain whilst out trekking back in 2002. As I?d completely frazzled my legs that had the beginning of gangrene, broken all my ribs, cracked my skull in 3 places and dislocated a lung, I couldn?t walk properly and stairs were a definite no no. At that time I was fluctuating between a size 14 and 16. So, I didn?t consider myself very overweight.

?You?re not going to eat that, are you?? said someone else, one day at 4pm, when I sat down to eat a vegetable noodle dish. ?Well, I haven?t eaten all day, so I think I need to have something.? Before you, the reader, think anything, I know I should be eating three square meals a day but sometimes I don?t have the time.

?Have you considered brand x, y and z of meal replacement shakes?? is something I frequently hear. I?m loathed to tell them Ive tried every product on the market: the Cambridge Diet, Herbalife, Eat right for you blood type, Slimfast, low carb, high carb, no carbs, raw food, no food, too much food. I even made a commercial, in London, for one particular brand.

?Exercising would do you the world of good!? is another favourite people like to drop into the conversation. When I tell them I walk 3 or 4 times a week, nine or ten kilometers at a time, they don?t believe me. When I tell them I spent an entire summer cycling to work and back, 17 kms, every day, they don?t believe.

?Chips are a killer? is another line I?ve heard indirectly thrown at me or: ?Less red meat, less cheese and more fruit and vegetables is really good for losing weight.? Sometimes I wonder if I should scream at the top of my lungs that I?m a vegan or if I should bite my tongue and smile quietly at the ignorance of the people bumping their gums for the sake of it. I know they mean well, but really they should have all the facts before they make a swift judgement.

If the truth be known, I?m sick to death of people telling me how I should look, what I should do, what I should eat and how I should behave. I?m also sick and tired of people judging me on the basis of assumptions they make about me.

Being overweight is now a societal stigma. People who are overweight are being made to feel like they are the lowest scum of the earth. Just the other day, a professor suggested people pay an airfare on the basis of their weight; furthermore discriminating against people who are overweight.

Worst of all, living in a modern day artificial and superficial society, where appearances are everything, there?s a certain pressure to fit in with the ?beautiful body image? philosophy. Even women with beautiful figures are being made to feel less than adequate in comparison to stick thin airbrushed models who do anything but grace the pages of magazines all over the world.

Unfortunately, no matter how sick I feel of everyone?s comments, if I want to avoid them, I realistically only have two choices: a) ignore everyone and their comments and lock myself away from society at large for the rest of my days, which does quite appeal to me but it’s a little unrealistic; or b) do something about it and transform the current me to a new me.

I opt for transformation and I try to eat healthy, although I do occasionally binge and I know I don’t eat enough. I train but perhaps not as efficiently or as often as I should. Last summer I cycled 17 kilometres a day to work and back and ate raw and still didn’t shape up. So, I’m obviously not doing things right.

Nothing seems to work. So, the conclusion is …. I can no longer do this alone. Hence, I’ve now turned to the professionals for help.
