Fatty five challenge week 2 update

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%

Total. -3.93%

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%

Total: -1.63%

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

Total: -3.07%

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.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
