My Help for Heroes Challenge


Silver Member
I had tried to do a different challenge but the doctors wont let me do it with my leg (I smashed my leg up earlier this year) Doctors didnt think jumping out of a plane then climbing a glacier would be a great idea but they have given me the all clear to do an 11 day Trek in Costa Rica (as long as I wear a forest gump knee brace... sexaaayyyyy)

This would not be possible without my weight loss, so I HAVE to stick to this diet and I HAVE to lose the weight.

This is going to be a huge change of life style for me, I have started training by walking for 30mins twice a day, I will be doing this until the 17th of November 2011 when I leave for the Trek, I also have to start doing longer walks at the weekend, with the goal of getting up to being able to walk for 8 hours a day.

I am doing this for my friend Mark... Mark was the life and soul of every party, he made people smile, he made people happy... in August this year I attended Marks funeral, aged just 26, he was killed in the line of duty in Afghan. The world is a darker place without him.

I am also doing this to prove that us with weight problems, can over come them and we can do what many may think is impossible.

Anything is possible if you just believe :)

So my challenge to myself is for the month of November.

Lose 12lbs

Walk 28 hours

I will update this every month with a different challenge for myself, the challenge will end at the end of November 2011 when I will return from Costa Rica

If anyone can spare any money, it would mean the world to be if people would sponsor me, I need to raise £3300 just to go.
