How to start.... HB and I butted internet heads about weight loss, me saying it can be done if it is a priority, it being as simple (but not easy) as burning more calories than you take in. HB has told me that she is ready to make the grand effort, and she truly believes that she can lose 10 pounds per month. She stated that she can get from her current weight of 250.8 lbs to 160.8 lbs by October 17, by combining a strict diet and workout regimen. She believes that a monetary incentive would push her to her goal. I originally offerred to bet her $1199 (no IRS form) against her, with no real payment from her to me if she would fail. HB scoffed at my low amount, and suggested that $9000 would be enough to motivate her. She said she would put up $1000, which I told her I could not take. However, she was insistent and I came up with this idea which I will open up to forum members---- The first 10 members who put up $900 will either pay HB that $900 on October 17, or HB will pay each member $100 if she fails. The only stipulations are that she can not have any weight loss surgery nor use any diuretics. So, as any member is essentially laying 9 - 1 against HB, are any of you interested in betting against her? The Wiz and I are the first 2 'investors', and the next 8 that are serious will let me know via this thread. Regardless of the bet, I will be rooting very hard for HB to win this challenge. If I win my $100 will be donated to charity.

SPOILER FOR THOSE NEWCOMERS WHO DON'T WANT TO READ THROUGH HUNDREDS OF PAGES:



NOW BACK TO MY ORIGINAL POST DATED Jan 9th, 2012:












Wow! This is for real now! I was mostly excited but now I'm kinda nervous. I'm planning on kicking some ass! Haha.

Before...



After...


(even though technically these last 2 pics are my waaaay before pics, I consider these my "after" pics cuz that's when I was right around 160-ish, so this should be similar to what I plan on looking like again)
OFFICIALLY and justifiably reclaimed my title as SuperHotBlonde!

Posting a woman's weight? May I take SOOPOO's slot when he is murdered by HB? ;)

It sounds like she is not too confident about winning the wager. Putting you money where your mouth is - but at 1-9 - sounds pretty weak to me. I'd put even money (up to $500) against her's or anyone else's that she doesn't make it. She wants to lose weight? Ok, go ahead and lose weight but I'm not dumb enough to pay you 9-1 to do it. She scoffed at a free $1,199? She needs $9,000 to "motivate" her? Weak.

Face- I certainly got HB's permission before making this post... TheNightfly.... the betting line is 9 to 1..... If you aren't interested then step aside.... The Wiz and I still think that against HB is a good bet...

I'll give you a better deal than any money...how about either lose the weight or have a massive fucking heartattack by 50, have to get rushed to ER, have your ass paddled to get your heartbeat back, then look forward to a double, triple, or quadruple bypass...
Sound appealing enough? Unless your 6', 250lbs for a woman is a fucking walking deathtrap.

Tim- I counseled HB on that issue in a more friendly manner.... But your point is valid.... So do you think she can do it? And are you willing to bet against her?

Please inform HotBlonde that sex burns alot of calories and that therefore the men of the forum will be ever so happy to contribute to her weight loss campaign. Or else set it up as a target date by which she has to have lost the weight or else she has to start sending airline tickets... with the first one going to Jerry Logan! Now that is an incentive program for sure!
Or perhaps we should just chip in and buy her an unbuttered pop corn device?
Or perhaps she gives us a running total ... and we chip in with some sort of Baccarat or Roulette fund for one of those "All on Seven Red" type bets.

While there is a lot of truth in that -- please tone down the wording. We are supposed to behave like gentlemen on this board, especially when addressing women. I think an apology to HB would be appropriate for the language.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

You know, for a physician you certainly take on some really bizarre challenges... :)

10 pounds a month is tough. Paradoxically the first month or two are easy, and you may easily surpass 10 pounds in those months. Later it becomes harder. Just something to keep in ind, and whether the bet will include terms like an average of 10 lbs per month, or a minimmum of 10 lbs per month.

BTW my current goal is to lose an average of 2 kilos per month for the next 4 months (long story). That's not easy. Two kilos are about 4.4 lbs, according to a gadget in my non-smart phone. 10 lbs comes to 4.53 kilos.

The real challenge isn't to lose weight, but not to gain it back afterwards <sigh>
Donald Trump is a fucking criminal
