At the turn of the year, and as I move on from self pity to my customary self absorption, I thought that it would be worthwhile to record the total work that Technogym tells me that I have done since the Virgin Active gym opened six months ago.

The runnng totals are:

Mass: 1,134,693Kg
Distance: 244.8Km
Energy: 56,381Kcal.

I found a reference that claims that one pound of body weight is equivalent to 3500 calories which implies that my exertions have been equivalant to 16 pounds; an amount that is eerily close to the weight that I have actually lost and tends to confirm my intuition that I have been able to shed weight gradually through exercise alone without changing my eating and drinking habits. That's rather gratifying. I wonder if it will continue?
