I AM ALIVE AND THANKFUL 7KM RUN/WALK

The aim of the run/walk is to encourage those whom normally just walk around their homes, estate, street or area for fitness or to get the feel of fresh breeze on their skin .. these are the real celebrities of this event

Those that have always run/walked without much activities to celebrate them as they are doing it solely for personal gains

Unlike other runs or races like marathons where runners train hard to come participate and win laurels, cash or medals 🥇

This run/ walk is strictly for fitness and wellness for these special persons who at the end of the event would all be winners of the same price.

The event would have LAWMA, LASTMA and our own special security team on ground to do the needful during and after the event.

SOME TESTIMONIALS

I have watched myself add weight just from looking at TV adverts of food.😁 But in may 2020, I had a chat with a previous mentee turned big woman and towards the end of the conversation, she told me about her new business, helping people lose weight.

In order not to let my mentee down, I said I can do it and took on the challenge. Men, it was tough! cycling, weightlifting, walking averagely 15km briskly every day, clean meals, lots of water. Etc. It was a life-changer. But as lockdown dey na, it transited from a hard chore, to become part of my daily routine, then I fell in love with the outdoors, fresh air etc.

This all started in July 2020 when I weighed 104kg. I set out to lose 20kg in 90days.😳. Crazy right! Then between day 74 and 80, I was so stressed and struggle to fit in my exercises into my full-on days. At this point, I had started putting on weight and crept up to 97kg.  Then I bumped into one of Onome’s daily send of I’m alive today and grateful to God where he sometimes celebrates people who have lost weight.. men I was thrilled by one guy that lost 15kg in such a short time. I wondered why my own dey tey…🥺
So I called Onome and he was thrilled to know I was exercising at all. He encouraged me in a rather harsh way, that I should continue.

basically, his words were, meme, if u dey weight person to encourage or ginger you for this weight loss mata, you go old o!, na to just pick up yourself face the mata and win. With what you are doing, just keep up. No aim to beat any person record. Just do yours at your own pace… hmm.

So the next day, i returned to walking, then added intermittent running.(gosh, I remember the first episodes of running… I almost collapsed) but little, I carried on. And today, I’m 90kg lost a total of 15kg.
I’m still on my journey to 80kg where i will just be right for my height.

Remember when sunshine ice block must melt.

I have always exercised on and off for as long as I can remember and always on one crash diet or the other but after a while, I decided I was no longer going to pay anyone to lose weight.

It is all in the mind I thought and so during the lock down in March,  I just decided that it was either I came out of the lock down with the same weight I had on at the start or I came out having lost some of the weight.

Seeing as my birthday was in October, I decided to set myself a target. I was about 73kg when I started and my aim was to go down to 60kg( I was laughing at myself when I set the 60kg target but i thought to myself well! even 65kg would suffice)

Anyways, as always I was on and off with my diet and exercise from March till June. I felt like something snapped in my brain in june and I started running and walking about 10km a day. I then moved onto running btw 15km to 17km Monday to Friday and 25km to 32km running and walking on saturdays then I would rest on sundays. Gradually, I began to see the weight come off and by the 16th of  October(my birthday) I was 59.6kg.

I would like to add that I didn’t particularly go on any healthy diet but I cut down on carbs and was doing more of protein and sometimes I would only take in liquids. I think anyone can get to their target weight with alot of determination, consistency, the grace of God and will power.

The benefits of walking and running are endless, I started sleeping like a baby, my skin was glowing and I was generally healthy and fit.

Well my running experience has been fantastic and amaizing.
I started running bc I always had difficulty in breathing and fatigue was my twin .
I found it difficult to climb the staircase in the house ..when ever I did, it was serious work for me, so prior to covid 19 lock down, I knew that if I didn’t do something abt my weight urgently I might die or my health would be easily affected

I was weighing 115kg as at February 2020

I joined the kilometer run in March during the total lockdown.

We started jogging for 1hr daily and also do some exercises as a group here in Benin city

My breathing is better now and I can climb the staircase in the house without any hassles

My weight has reduced to 105 and dropping even further , I am now a happy man that is very fit.
