Arnold Bennett - "The chances are that you have already come to believe that happiness is unattainable. But men have attained it. And "they have attained it by realising that happiness does not spring from the procuring of physical or mental pleasure, but from the development of reason and the adjustment of conduct to principles."

Duncan’s weight loss and mud run challenge

Following on from my previous blog posts about my weight loss, and the benefits of the Body By Vi challenge, I took part in a new challenge over the weekend. I took part in a 6K mud run to raise money for my Scouts, 1st Burstow Scout Group, where I’m the Scout leader. The scouts did their part by helping me to raise sponsorship money and so far we’re totalling £560. A mud run sounds like fun so I’ll describe the challenges to give you more of an idea. As well as running across fields, woods, uphill and downhill we had to overcome other challenges such as; crawling under barbed wire through muddy cold and often stagnant water, swim about 40 metres across a 6 foot deep lake (so you couldn’t wade across), carry a car tyre up and down a hill, more wading through stagnant ponds, crawling through mud, jumping over fire pits, climbing through an electric lattice and of course a brilliant water slide! Anyway 48 minutes after starting I crossed the finish line and received my finishers medal!

Duncan before his weight loss challenge Duncan after hi weight loss challengeIf someone had told me 4 months ago that, having not run for about 17 years, I could complete such a task in a pretty good time I would have laughed at them and said no way. If you add to that the fact that all those 17 years ago I broke my back and had a load of metal screws fitted in my lower spine, it makes this task all the more improbable. Needless to say, I’m very proud of what I’ve achieved. I’m not writing this to brag though, I want to share with you how I did it, so you can do the same (it’s not compulsory to do the mud run bit, but you can if you like).

In May 2013 I weighed about 15 1/2 stone, had a 41″ waist and couldn’t run for more than 200 yards without gasping for breath. I started losing weight by using the Body By Vi Meal Replacement shakes, replacing 2 meals a day. Not only did I lose the weight I wanted, but I found I had more energy and was increasing my lean muscle mass. brilliant results on their own. Being the sort of person I am, a month later I decided to take things a step further and get fitter too. I started cycling to the station each day, a 7 mile round trip, and running to increase my endurance and weight loss.

In 4 months I’ve lost over 1 1/2 stone and lost 5-6 inches around my waist. I can now run at least 6 miles without stopping, and have increased my cycling to about 50 miles a week.

I can’t believe the difference between then and now, and Amanda’s pretty impressed too. See the difference in the pictures (sorry about the clown outfit, the fancy dress was part of the sponsorship deal with my scouts).
