Now we all know that obesity…like poverty is a global issue, the difference between those who have and those who don’t is so apparent, especially if like me you like to travel.

I stood out like a sore thumb on my travels around south east Asia last year, children there thought I was a giant…Well i am. When I went to Colombia a few years back it was pretty much the same. But on my first trip to the USA is September I felt quite svelte…and I was 6 months pregnant.

So I suppose when I launched fattymustruns marathon challenge I expected a good response from the UK, USA and Canada… and that is pretty much what I have got.

But I am interested to see if there are any fatties else where, so please forward the fattymustrun marathon challenge to your networks, especially if you have followers all over the world.

I had a quick look at where my readers have come over the last few months and it is pretty amazing really.

This week for example I have had

1 from Indonesia – I didn’t see a single fatty when I went there

6 from Austria – do they have fatties?

9 from Ghana – I know some overweight Ghanaians who live in the Uk but that’s not quite the same

68 from Canada, 372 from USA and 436 from the UK

Who am I missing, and how can I get them involved??

Remember the closing date is 17th May!!

  1. I might have misread that. I thought you’d had that many applications!
    Nice varied readership anyway, though. 🙂

    Good post. Really have countries and cultures that do not get fat.

    Yeah I was surprised about Australia but then I saw sick, fat and nearly dead (or something like that ) and apparently they are in the same boat as the US.

    You’ve a Paddy living in Portugal! ;o)

  5. Wow! That’s an amazing response.

    I have asked all the fat people I know on Facebook*, but I don’t know if they want to do it or not because they’ve unfriended me**.

    *I haven’t
    **they haven’t
