We've now decided to have a bit of a competition between the two of us...namely the "Losing Friends Competition". Whoever can lose the most weight by the end of the year will win magical prizes, bragging rights, and fame & fortune. Something like that anyways.
At this point we both have the same goal in mind: 100 pounds. It's likely to take longer than Dec 31st, but you never know. That would pretty much bring me to goal weight, and it's where he wants to end up too. Weigh-ins will be on Thursdays, since that's when I go to Y Be Fit, and he can weigh in on the Wii.
We did officially start late last night, so our beginning weights are:
- Nessa: 232.6
- Jeremy: 281.8
Once we actually figure out what the little prizes will be, I'll post that up. What are some good ideas for inexpensive fitness-related items?
I need to mix up my gameplan now - going to have to step it up to compensate for the fact that he's a guy and probably going to have a somewhat easier time losing weight over me in theory. Doesn't matter though - I am still going to win, bwa ha ha.
I've been doing 4-5 workouts a week and that's about to become 6. I might also make the ones I currently do a bit longer. I'll have to watch better and make sure there really are no more bagel benders. At least I've been logging all my calories daily, which I find very helpful.
No matter what, we'll both be winners and losers. That's the best part of all, right?
