There are only 27 days left in the Fat Guy Contest.
I came down with bronchitis after my trip to Guam and I haven't been doing my 60 minute runs every day. I've played soccer three times per week, but I don't think playing soccer burns fat cells as effectively as just going out and running. I also haven't been lifting weights.
Even so, I am right at the 200 lbs. mark. When I weighed myself today, my weight was 200.6 lbs., making me exactly 12.0 lbs. lighter than I was when I started the Fat Guy Contest.
I feel great these days. When I play soccer I can make runs and have enough juice left to get back on defense. Not bad for someone my size. My clothes are also starting to not fit so well. It's not like I'm Jared Fogel from the Subway commercials holding up a pair of jeans big enough to fit five Filipina girls, but my shorts have gone from being a little tight to being a few sizes too big.
In the remaining four weeks my goal is to lose another 13 lbs., making my total weight loss for the three month period 25 lbs. I don't think that will be enough to win the contest, but it will be a complete turn around in my health. In two short months I've gone from not being able to run 3 miles to being able to run 6.5 miles in 60 minutes. By the end of the month I should be running 7-8 miles in 60 minutes.
I still haven't changed my diet and I still haven't stopped drinking beer. I am on the Fried Chicken and Bud Lite diet. I'd change, but I sure do like Fried Chicken and Bud Lite.
