As many of the readers of the August edition of the ever popular A.net self pic thread with know I have been very ill recently but I am now well on the way to recovery and have been given the parole      discharge date from hospital, I shall be leaving hospital on Monday 16th August to go home this will mean that I have spend a total of 10 weeks in hospital.

I often thought that people were very cliched when they talk about something being a life changing experience but know I can honestly say that that is what I have experienced in this last 10 weeks, I shall never look at life the same and although I will still maintain my love of food and all things gastronomic I shall maintain a level of control and moderation, but more importantly will be to balance that with exercise so that I work towards what for me would be an ideal weight of 18-20 stone or about 265 pounds or 120 kgs.

I should like to thank all the members of this fantastic community that is A.net for there kind words in the self pic thread it was much appreciated.

The people that I really must thank are the dozens of wonderful medical staff that have looked after me and saved my life over that last ten weeks without them MWHCVT would be making his final ferry flight to scrapper. I especially want to thank all those was in the ICU/HDU at Walsgrave Hospital.

I would like some suggestions from my fellow A.netters for ideas to raise some money for the ward that I was on to provide some small useful items for the patients, I intend to purchase a number of fans, some radios and personal DVD players as these would be of great use to the ward as the fan's are in great demand and there entertainment devises will he those more long term patients keep there sanity.

Please not this I not a begging thread, Its a thank you thread and suggestions thread.

Thanks for reading and your suggestions.

a thinner and healthier MWHCVT 

Must think up a new one soon, slow moving brain trying to get into gear ;)

Good for you Matt! I'm sure you'll enjoy getting back home. Best wishes with your new food life! And exercise too. All good stuff.

About raising money - is there some way you can link it to your exercise? Perhaps a walk-a-thon or something similar where you are sponsored for the distance you walk and the more you walk the more you raise? That will keep you motivated to exercise too.

But that was when I ruled the world

Good for you - and good luck with the exercise.

Maybe a bicycle is the easier option out of all of the exercise methods? I'd take that option to get to work if I didn't live hours away - it'd save me thousands of dollars per year in train ticket costs.  

So I walk a bit more to a train station a bit further away from where I work. And a little bit, each day makes a difference.
