It's all your fault! 10k madness

For those who don't know, I started doing something about my weight in January 2005, and used this site to get me started. I began to realise from what people were saying that I had to do more than look at my diet, I had to exercise.

So I started going to the gym........and I caught the bug. I have even started running (now if anyone of you saw me when I was at my fattest, you would have thought that was pretty impossible - I sure did)

So............next weekend, June 11, I am running in london!!! I have never been to London, and in my demented brain thought that running around Hyde Park twice would be a great way to see it!!!!

Wish me luck!!!

Good Lick, Kyles!!!

I'm so sorry we drove you to this. Perhaps we could do an intervention.

Hyde Park is a great area to run. Make sure you look at Speaker's Corner and the Queen Mother Gates.... Don't slip on the goose and duck excrement on some of the paths!

Wow, Kyles, you really are an inspiration. You achieved so much, and that's wonderful. I hope you have lots of fun going to London and running in Hyde Park. How exciting! Just thought you'd like to know that through your advice, I joined the 3fatchicks website (for the South Beach diet forum) and learned a great deal about preparing food that would work with this particular diet that could still be enjoyed by the rest of the family.

Great job and congratulations are certainly due you. You've come a long way and been an inspiration to many of us. I always read your posts as inspiration when I've worked so hard and the results come slowly. It does pay off!

Good luck! May you cook many healthy tofu dishes and enjoy lobster dipped in your own sauces better than butter.
