Geek Out Loud Fat Off

Saturday, November 9th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

I decided to take part in Geek Out Loud’s weight loss challenge. It’s called Civil War Episode 7: The Fatoff. It started yesterday and goes until Dec 6. Basically, everyone put $35 into the pool. Each person who loses 4% of their body weight in 4 weeks splits the pool. Right now the pool is at $805. I have to lose 7.7 lbs to win.

I lost 90 lbs, but then I put about 25 back on. It’s shouldn’t be too hard to drop 7.7 lbs if I do what I know I should be doing. My only issue is that I hate the word diet because of what it sometimes implies. I made a lifestyle change when I lost my weight. I never changed what I eat, just how much of it I eat.

Anyway, I think I’ll get back the $35 I put in, maybe more. Maybe I’ll get back down to my former weight within the next few months. Check out the page here.

    I agree with you about the term “diet”. I think success comes from focusing on improving one’s health, not only from a number on the scale. The pool sounds like good motivation. Good luck, Will! I hope you win the pool. 🙂
