Well, today while reading my fellow beer bloggers blogs I came across an interesting piece on Chipper Dave's blog Fermentedly Challenged called The Great American Beer Diet Challenge. In the piece he admits to be 20 lbs overweight, I wish, and issued a challenge in which he states:
Here's the challenge, I want anyone who wants to join the challenge to post on their own blog a starting picture of your belly, plus keep a posted weekly journal of how much you weighed, what exercise (if any) you did that day, a brief summary of what you ate and what beer you drank that day (up to 7 per week). I challenge you to lose a higher percentage of body weight than me by October 11th. Why October 11th? That's the day I head to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver to celebrate
So, of course the former jock in me says yes I'm in. I'm always up for a challenge especially when free beer is involved. Plus, maybe I can lose some weight at the same time. So here are my current stats and the belly picture will come later when I buy my new camera on Friday.
Current Weight: 285 (geez I have a long way to go)
Goal for Oct 11th: 250 (35lbs)
Overall Goal: 220 (65lbs) I don't want to give up after Oct. 11th.
Stay Buddhalicious!(I may have to change that huh?)
