Easter Sunday weigh in


Original playout date: 26 March 2008
Duration: 2:20

Although this video is essentially ephemeral in nature, my weight on a particular day, it does mark two important new things going on in my life in March 2008. It was my first serious weight-loss drive for years and the beginning of a drive for health with which I aimed to take part in the Warsaw Marathon six months down the line from now. You’ll see in due course what happened with that.

At the start of my health drive, which was back in the previous July, I had been 138.6 kgs, just short of 140, and by this time I had already got down to 126.3 at the start of the weightloss challenge on Playradio, and six weeks later I made it down to 124 kg. By September I was at 116 kg and then it started to go back up again, and of course one day I saw I was back only at 140 kg, the one inmportant difference being that I was a lot more physically active, so more of that weight was, proportionately, muscle than it had been in Summer 2007, probably my unhealthiest position ever.

The other thing here is Playradio UK, which was a great hobby while it lasted for me and many other members of the listening community with a number of whom we made good friendships. This weighloss challenge was among those in the community who wanted to lose a few kilos and it was won by Jason’s character with his “guween dwinks”, but who of course has faked the whole thing. But it was a great laugh. Soon you will see the shows all appearing on my channel.

Quote of the clip: Unfortunately this one got audioswapped as well so you cannot hear the original sound track. Today I replaced that old track (which became a copyright infringement in the meantime even though it had een offered as Copyright free, funny how that happens) with a different track. Maybe a bit better.
