    I'm in a weight loss contest at work. I've lost 18 pounds "the right way" but tomorrow is the weigh-in and I just found out I'm neck and neck with my main competition. What can I do today to drop 2-5 pounds by tomorrow?

    This means 700 bucks to me. :x:

    UPDATE: I WON!!

    THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR THE HELP

    Starve yourself. Dont eat anything and drink lots of coffee. Put on a bunch of sweats and go do like an hour of cardio.

    Be ready to cramp up/get headaches.

    Sit in a sauna for a few hours while doing jumping jacks.

    You can EASILY lose 5 lbs by tomorrow, you'll probably feel like ass though.

    Take some diuretics.

    you can easily lose 10 lbs in about 3 hours before going in to weigh in. you'll be dehydrated as hell though.

    Wear two layers of hooded sweatshirts/sweatpants.
    Turn on your car with the heat on full blast.
    Do some repetitive body motions in it for about an hour.
    Do not eat.
    Drink nothing except espresso or the like.
    Eat jolly ranchers (suck on them to produce saliva and spit it all out into a water bottle). Fill two water bottles.

    I've seen kids drop 5-6 pounds in one morning of doing this for wrestling.

    dont fucking sit in your car with the heater on. wtf thats dumb as hell. put on some sweats, sit in a sauna. don't drink anything, just dehydrate. jump on an aerodyne (bike) or go running. keep spitting and then voila. you cut 5 pounds easy. just make sure you rehydrate right after you check your weight. and eat like a powerbar, or that shit will run right through you.

    If you're 4 hours from home at a judo tournament and one of your team members needs to cut you have no sauna, was just giving an alternative.

    another easy way to sweat even more is to put a trash bag on buy cutting holes for your head and arms(put it directly on your skin), then throw a lot of layers of clothing on and sweats and go do some sprints. I used to do this during the winter outside and I'd lose 6 lbs with ease.

    :rofl:

    The entire video all I could think of was the scene in Boondock Saints where they are going into the strip joint and Rocco has his mask on all fucked up.

    Connor: Okay, Roc...
    [Connor looks at him and laughs. His mask is badly put on]
    Rocco: What? You guys got masks.
    Murphy: You look like Mush-mouth from Fat Albert.
    [as they keep giggling, Rocco takes his mask off]
    Rocco: Fine! Fuck it. When we're done, she can ID me. Just trying to be professional, but nooooo...
    Connor: No, no, put it on.
    Rocco: No, fuck it.
    Connor: It looks fine. Now shut the fuck up, put it on, you look good. You look fuckin' scary, man!
    [Rocco puts his mask on, again badly]
    Connor: [trying not to laugh] Now Roc, are you sure that you're obee-kay-bee?

    My record during wrestling in HS. was 11lbs in 6 hours.

    It's not easy, and you will feel like shit.

    First thing is to clean out your stomach. Drink black coffee, only eat grapefruit and a VERY SMALL portion of plain pasta with a spritz of that spray on 'i can't believe it's not butter' bullshit.

    cut arm and head holes in a plastic bag. Put it on.

    Put as many layers of sweatpants and sweatshirts on as you can.

    Run. ride a bike. do yardwork... Any sort of cardio will work.


    chew gum, but spit the saliva. don't swallow.

    If you do the eating part tonight, and get up early tomorrow to do the running/cardio part, you'll be golden.

    g'luck!

    yeah, wear a rubber suit, sit in a sauna, do jumping jacks, and pray to allah/buddah/jesus/ganish you don't die.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I guess I'm going to have to get my ass up early as fuck and do the garbage bag thing I guess.

    Another quick question, this may sound stupid, but if I do the garbage bag thing, obviously I'm going to smell like shit. Will I retain water back in if I take a shower? :hsughno: I don't really want to go to work smelling like ass. :o

    I lived in Michigan until the end of February when I moved here. That's probably why you've never noticed it ;)

    do NOT do the car thing, the fumes from your car can be toxic and you will black out/ delirium.

    dehydrate yourself.

    I have nothing to add other than good luck!
    Perhaps someone can join you in person for extra motivation?
