Ten years ago today I was walking around the horrors of Auschwitz-Birkenau when an email came in from my Doctor to say that the results of my tests can come back and I had Type II Diabetes. There is an irony there in the speech by Obersturmfürer Hössler to Greek Jews about the enter the […]
For the last nine days I’ve been following this sign around the coast from St Dogmaels to Criccieth. The full sweep of Cardigan Bay complete and my overall three year plan now over 60% complete. 140 official miles in all, but more than that in practice (although I haven’t worked it out yet). In general […]
I took up cycling many moons ago when we lived in Send. I'd more or less given up on running as a means of getting fit and the cycle seemed a better alternative. The country lanes of Surrey proved ideal and I was hooked. I had a hybrid bike then bought from Evans with little […]
This is continuation of my post of yesterday, but expanding on the theme of how you get people to change behaviour and self manage change. Again I am going to illustrate this with my own experience of managing a radical change post my diagnosis as diabetic, so there is an element of personal story here […]
One of the points I have been making for years is that a degree of failure is inevitable in any system and what matters is early detection, fast recovery and fast exploitation of the new space created. Now this applies to the whole health and life style question and I promised to pick up on […]
Now today was a good day, in fact an excellent day. It started with a visit to the Doctor to get the results of a pre-Christmas blood test. Now this was a big one after six months of diet and exercise I needed sugar levels to be at least stable to know that things […]
My last two posts discussed by personal journey, and one which is not yet complete. I'll update that from time to time, especially when I close in on my target weight of 82 kg which I should make when I start the 60@60 Round Wales Walk this February. I now want to move on to […]
Once you have been diagnosed with Diabetes then a whole process clicks into place starting with a meeting with a specialist nurse. Now while my experience of professionals has been mostly excellent this first encounter was deeply depressing. I am intelligent and more than capable of researching a subject so I went into the appointment […]
This is the first of three blog posts I have been asked to write reflecting on the period from April this year when I was told I had type II Diabetes. Since then I have lost 10″ around my waist, lost 25kg and got my fitness back to a level I last experienced in the […]
