Update On Cabbies Do Kilimanjaro : Plus, Their Story So Far


Five fat London Cab Drivers, collectively known as Cabbies Do Kilimanjaro who are fundraising to raise £20k for www.taxicharity.org



The team are now only three months away from climbing Kilimanjaro and have lost an amazing 141 pounds between them. Earlier this week, they were delighted to find out that they have been made tourism ambassadors for Tanzania and were guests this week of the Tanzanian High Commission in London


Story so far...
We are five fat cabbies! Five middle aged fat London cabbies. With a mission. Well, actually, we have two missions. The first stage is to lose a combined weight of 25 stone between us. And then, once we’ve climbed that mountain, we’re off to Tanzania to take a stroll up Africa’s highest mountain - Kilimanjaro. Impossible? We don’t think so and we’re a bunch of committed and positive people. And we believe that this is possible. Climbing Kilimanjaro is not for the feint hearted and a massive achievement. But to do this, a certain level of fitness, stamina and determination is needed. We may not have the fitness and stamina just yet. But determination- we have bundles. So how are we going to do what seems to be impossible? 


It all started with a tweet - “Any other cabbies out there fancy losing weight with me and then climb Kilimanjaro?” I actually didn’t think too many people would be that interested. There was the expected copious amount of leg pulling but what emerged was a group of cabbies who were as serious about this as I was. I started to get a lot of private messages enquiring about this and we’ve ended up with a group of seven cabbies who have committed ourselves from start to finish. 


So, here we are. All with the same goals in sight. Between us, we vary from 22 stone down to 16 and we all have individual targets as far as weight loss is concerned. But with a combined weight of 25 stone to lose, we’ve got to get going and start our new regimes. 

We’ve all embarked on our new regimes. Particularly with eating and exercise. Out with the McDonald’s breakfasts and in with porridge’s, poached eggs and muesli! 

Best wishes,

Good luck you cabbies. The hardest thing is not loosing the weight but keeping it off when you have lost it. Enjoy your mountain climb and if you haven't been to Africa before I'm sure you'll fall in love with Africa.
