If we are talking about other members losing weight, I am interested.

Anyway if I can get some people interested in my progress and maybe some pledges of about $100 (yeah thats it only a hundred) I will be extra motivated to share my experience.



It has to be a bet for me to be involved. You put up $5 and I put up $100. If you are 160lbs or less on June 21, 2013, you win. If not, you lose. Same rules as HBC1... no weight loss surgery, and no diuretics. Also- no speedo pictures, please!

Given the many people wanting to lose a few pounds, maybe we should make a new year resolution thread.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I am doing this to raise $ for charity (not sure which one yet), actually I think I will ask if the wager can be if I make the weight/win the race then the Wizard will donate $ to the charity, if I dont make/lose the race then I donate the $ to the charity. With only 2 days a week at work right now I can't risk more than $100.

No! He is much too thin. I think 160 is sounds like a good goal.

I don't profess to be a health and exercise expert, but I think for what you want you should emphasize cardiovascular exercises as opposed to weight lifting.



Mostly cardio with some anaerobic strength work... muscle burns calories quicker than fat. Only cardio makes the body good as moving your current mass around after a while, which doesn't help weight loss.

Since you have helped me many times, here is what I propose. On June 21 I'll give you $50 if you get to 160, plus another $50 if you can beat me in a five-mile race. This is totally a free roll.



Whats your 5 mile time, Mr Wizard? Just curious, as you can do sub 2-hour half marathons I am not about to challenge you :)
