Friday Weigh In #3

Here we go!

Jed Scattergood - 223 = 5% Change (-10.3 lbs.) To Date, -2.5 This Week
Karen Arcelaschi - 153 = 4% Change (-6 lbs.) To Date, -2 This Week
Chuck Carlin - 165 = 2% Change (-3 lbs.) To Date, -1 This Week
Lauren Cerretani - 151.5 = 4% Change (-6.5 lbs.) To Date, -.5 This Week
Joe Doherty - 208 = 3% Change (-7 lbs.) To Date, -1 This Week
Chris Wallace - 192.5 = 0% Change (-2 lbs.) To Date, -0 This Week
Beckie Wallace - 136 = 3% Change (-4 lbs.) To Date, -1 This Week
Jessica Palazzo - 161 = 4% Change (-6 lbs.) To Date, N/A This Week
Andy Davis - 178 = 1% Change (-2 lbs.) To Date, -1 This Week

This week was likely the result of the boring-yet-sweat-producing treadmill which bumped me back up to the top with a 5% change to date. Based on past weeks though, I've also fluctuated the most, so I need to be very careful of Lauren AND Karen, as they're right behind me at 4%.

Till next time,

Cheers!

Friday Weigh In #2

Welp, it was a pretty normal week for everyone, as expected. Last weeks numbers were quite drastic, so I kind of assumed this week would prove to be a bit less dramatic.... and I was right. Here are the numbers!


Jed Scattergood - 225.5 = 3% Change (-7.8 lbs.) To Date, +1 This Week
Karen Arcelaschi - 155 = 3% Change (-4 lbs.) To Date, -1 This Week
Chuck Carlin - 166 = 1% Change (-2 lbs.) To Date, +1 This Week
Lauren Cerretani - 152 = 4% Change (-6 lbs.) To Date, -2 This Week
Joe Doherty - 209 = 3% Change (-6 lbs.) To Date, -0 This Week
Chris Wallace - 192.5 = 1% Change (-2 lbs.) To Date, -0 This Week
Beckie Wallace - 137 = 2% Change (-3 lbs.) To Date, -1.2 This Week
Jessica Palazzo - 161 = 4% Change (-6 lbs.) To Date, N/A This Week
Andy Davis - 179 = 1% Change (-1 lbs.) To Date, -1 This Week

So there ya have it. A few 0's, and a couple +'s... but let's hear it for Lauren as she takes the victory this week and shed's two more pounds! She also takes the lead overall, as I dropped to 3% (I blame creme brulee), leaving her as the only one with a 4% change in weight! (Jess is on vacation this week, so her numbers are void until next Friday.)

Now keep in mind, this is only the beginning. I'm going to start getting fierce now, as I have a few motivating factors to help drive me a little harder....

A few nights ago, a bet was made made with one Mr. Jay Pilbin. He told me, that if I could get my weight down to 200 lbs. by the West Hill Memorial Day 5K Road Race, he would shave his head bald, AND shave off his moustache (which he's had since he was 15... almost 33 years ago). Now, 200 is a bit light for me... but I've been there before, and I know it is possible. Plus, nothing would please me more than to see Jay squirm as the razor begins buzzing off his hair.

For now though, keep up the good work everyone, and until next Friday.....

Godspeed!

Friday Weight in #1

Here we go everyone! The first official weight in is complete (well, almost, just waiting on Andy), so without further adieu, here are the numbers!!

Jed Scattergood - 224.5 = 4% Change (-8.8 lbs.)
Karen Arcelaschi - 156 = 2% Change (-3 lbs.)
Chuck Carlin - 165 = 2% Change (-3 lbs.)
Lauren Cerretani - 154 = 3% Change (-4 lbs.)
Joe Doherty - 209 = 3% Change (-6 lbs.)
Chris Wallace - 192.5 = 1% Change (-2 lbs.)
Beckie Wallace - 138.2 = 1% Change (-1.8 lbs.)
Jessica Palazzo - 161 = 4% Change (-6 lbs.)
Andy Davis - 180 = 0% Change (-0.0 lbs.)

Great numbers for our first week, with Jess and yours truly pulling in a body fat percentage of 4% to jump into the lead! It's only going to get more difficult from here, though......

Keep it up everyone, good work!!!

First Weigh In

In an effort ot motivate our participants, the first official weigh in will not take place until next Friday, January 12. So, all you fat clubbers out there, you have an extra week to prove yourselves before we start doing it every Friday thereafter.

Keep in mind, this first weigh in is crucial as big numbers will give us all that extra drive to keep going, while small numbers may work against us. In other words, work really hard during the next week... it's essential!

I am very happy with the loyalty and commitment from all contestants so far, and I look forward to what might be the most influential Poopdeck Challenge yet!

Godspeed!

Jedlebrity Fat Club

It has officially begun! The Jedlebrity Fat Club is now underway, and it has a fairly good following as well. Currently there are 9 contestants, all willing to share their sacred numbers on a weekly basis to see who can lose the largest percentage of body weight. If you look to the sidebar on this page, you'll see a listing of all contestants, as well as starting weights as of January 2nd, 2007. Over the weekend I plan to build a simple yet informative page that will hold more detail (weekly charts, percentages, maybe pictures, etc) to keep track of things as we move along.

Personally, I am out to win this thing. As the fatty of the group, topping the charts at 233.3, I stand to lose a pretty large percentage of weight, so in my mind this thing is in the bag! Will anyone prove me wrong? We'll just have to find out....

Good luck to all!
