As we move along to week 2 of the Fatty Five Challenge, we enter a delicate period. You can read about the details of the challenge here, but the basic deal is that all Fatty Five members risk cash against their ability to lose 8% of their body weight before July 1st, 2011. We then publicly shame ourselves with weigh-ins on this blog. So far, only three of the Fatty Five have agreed to admit to their participation. This is okay, because the first rule of the Fatty Five Challenge is to not talk about the Fatty Five Challenge. (I don't follow rules well.)
Remember, you too can play along with us by giving your results in the comments section. No excuses! (Especially such as the one given by "glennbeck.com content guy/person who creepily sits in my office without explanation" Wilson Garrett, who actually told me he hasn't started yet because he "had to buy a scale.")
Stu "absolutely ab-less" Burguiere
Week 2 -1.70%
After a solid first week, I followed it up with another workmanlike effort in week 2 and am already halfway to the goal after only 2 weeks of a 3 month challenge. However, it only gets harder from here. This Friday I embark on a 10 day tour with Glenn and Pat all over America (glennbecktours.com) and this is usually when I eat like a ravenous Michael Moore in a pudding factory. The key is not to screw it up like a pudding factory owner who destroys his company by letting Michael Moore in.
Below are my fellow "fatty" participants' results:
Kevin “It Could Have Been Worse” Balfe
Week 2: +0.70%
Please see photo for a sample meal from my vacation last week.
Keith “Not Gaining an Ounce May Reinforce Terrible Eating Habits” Ferry
Week 2: No gain, no loss
See Kevin “It Could Have Been Worse” Balfe’s photo and picture me eating that too.
**One other Fatty Five Challenge participant did respond to my request for comment on their week. Unfortunately, approximately 50% of the words used in the response were expletives and therefore the entry was deemed inappropriate to run on glennbeck.com.
