    My local PCT (sponsoring the running) are really interested in my weightloss story so I've agreed to do a bit of publicity, for both the running and the weightloss.

    So I'm being interviewed by my local radio (TFM) tomorrow morning! :eek:

    The local paper want to do an interview too :eek: :eek:

    Jim, Well done and good luck. I'm sure you will enjoy the experience and most of all it will inspire a lot of other people who are listening to take that first step to getting fitter!

    I agree with Jayney, some good publicity about CD would be good. A colleague stuck a magazine on my desk today, an article about the people who have been on Lighter Life and died. So they're now worried about me! Anyway, good luck with the interview :)

    Good Luck broadcasting to the region - what a shame I won't hear you in London, I am sure it will go very well as you have been so enthusiastic about getting healthier and encouraging/supporting other on their weight loss journeys, all the best x

    Yikes, it looks like you can!

    TFM Radio - today's favourite music

    Thanks for the kind words folks :D

    And, it seems I've lost 4lbs this week somehow :D So I'm 2lbs down on my weight pre-op. I'm just calorie counting at the moment so fingers crossed it is paying off.

    Not entirely sure. I'm meeting the press person from the PCT and the TFM lady at the radio station at 10:30, so some time shortly after that I guess.

    Right, now that I know what's going on...

    I recorded the interview earlier today, but it's not going out until Sunday. I'm going to be that day's news 'human interest' element, basically they're going to use portions of the interview at each hourly news bulletin throughout the day, probably with different content each time. Listeners will be directed to the website to get the full story, pictures :eek: etc. so you'll be able to see it somewhere at the link I posted the other day.

    It wasn't too bad actually, at least with me not going out live listeneres won't be subjected to a barrage of umms and errs lol! But the lady doing the interview (actually one of their news readers) really put me at ease, the studio wasn't intimitading or anything, and I listened to a little bit after we recorded it and it sounded reasonably ok; I was worried that I'd hate it, you know how when you hear yourself on an answerphone and hate it (well I do anyway)? I just hope my Teesside accent wasn't too shocking lol not that the locals would notice :D

    Got a nice tour of the studio too, and sat in with their morning presenter while he was broadcasting so I got a little view of how things work. I was suprised how little stuff there is in a studio these days; of course it's all computers now and gone are the endless banks of knobs and switches...

    Err, that's about it really! I did of course harp on about CD, and I even mentioned Minimins lol, but I'm just waiting for Sunday now to find out how much of a dick I made of myself :D :D Hopefully it'll be ok!
