A Friendly Fitness Wager

I posted a few comments on this idea over at Israel’s blog, and I am reposting here to give others an opportunity to join in.

How it Works: On January 7th, 2008 you take your “before” photos and record your stats (weight, body fat percentage, and waist measurements).  Follow whatever weight loss/fitness program you like and work hard for two months.  On March 2nd, 2008, take your “after” photos and retake all the above measurements.

Whatever method you choose to use to measure body fat (caliper, fancy scale, or website) be sure to use the same method and/or device consistently throughout the two month period.

Who Wins: The person who shows the greatest overall decrease in body fat percentage wins.

The Stakes: Each loser will pay $10 to the winners PayPal account.  Each contestant is personally responsible to follow through on their word in the event that they lose.  Remember, this is a friendly wager, so while the winner might not break your legs to obtain payment, you will probably lose some respect if you fail to pay up.

Dates: Begins 1/7/2008, Ends 3/2/2008.

How to Sign-up: Either send an email to me (totaltransformation) or leave a comment at the bottom of this post with your internet contact information.  Either way, be sure to leave a brief comment on the bottom of this post should you choose to participate.
