    This isn't really geared towards F&N regulars, but I figured a lot of people will be looking in this subforum for the next few months to come, plus this way people w/o subs can participate. Of course everyone is welcome to join in so just let me know. I posted it in OT too.

    Two advantages to this:

    1. It's a shorter period of time (1.5 months) so we won't lose so many people during the contest. Most of the contests that start on new year's last forever and when 50 people join, maybe 2 people at most will post pictures after 2 months with their results.

    2. The gyms will be crowded as fuck after New year's. By getting a head start you'll already have your routine down and be a lot more efficient so less fumbling around trying to figure shit out when it's crowded as fuck.

    Plus when ppl go into December with that mindset "I'll just let loose now, I'll make up for it when I start working out on Jan 1st" when it actually comes time to start losing weight it takes a month to undo all the bad shit you did to yourself over the holidays. If you start now you'll develop healthier eating habits and hopefully start exercising reguarly. Even if you somehow manage to not lose any weight, at least you won't put any on.

    If we start now, that gives us about 6 week before new year's. If your diet is meh right now you could probably, lose 5-10lbs in the first week and 1.5 lbs/week thereafter... 2lbs/week if you're really dedicated. That can easily add up to 20lbs before New Year's even starts.

    I'm 6'5" and 240lbs, heaviest I've ever been my entire life (was at 210 5 months ago :wtc: ) That puts my BMI at 28.5 which is at the upper end of "overweight" and borderlining "obese". If I stick with my diet and manage to lose 2lbs/week on top of the 10 lbs of initial water weight loss, that would put my finishing BMI at 25.8, I'll be just shy of "normal weight", on the very lower end of "overweight."

    If there's any interest (say 5+ people that are in it for sure) let's make this official. I'll chip in $10 for the winner's pot. You don't have to "buy in" but it might help motivate yourself to chip in some money so you don't come up w/ a bunch of excuses not to do it. So who's in?

    Results will be judged by "best improvement" via before/after pics and voted on in the main forum. Some basic rules:

    1. Date must be written on something in the picture.
    2. Before and after pics must be in the same room with the same lights on.
    3. The pics will be e-mailed/PMed to me and after the contest I'll make a thread w/ a public poll for all of OT to vote. All the pics will be anonymous so you don't have to be embarassed about taking before pics. If you drop out I won't post your pics or ridicule you (unless you want me to :big grin:).

    when you put **OFFICIAL** in the thread title, then it means it's for reals.


    BMI makes this contest invalid IMO


    and Gubment cheese is right, main forum voting FTL
     
  10. There should be an official voting panel of F&N people...only yoked people can vote.

    Pur, timber, NUDES, GT, etc. some other fucks and of course 4cd-air cause he's certified after all.

    I copied and pasted that from the main forum, I forgot to take out the BMI shit. I don't actually use that to track progress or anything, it was just to show how big of a difference 20lbs can make in terms most people can understand. I don't even really use my weight as a way to track progress, I mainly just use measurements and how I look in the mirror.

    Take a realistic guess and then subtract 10%.
