Hello! Here at 2 Fat Nerds, each Wednesday is a Weigh-In day, where all of the data from the previous week is collected, displayed, and analyzed.

Now, let’s dig in to the results!


Each week, members who have opted to have their weights publicly displayed for the world to see have them graphed on the main blog. It is a great way to keep track over time, and it gives a bit more accountability to your workouts. If you are interested, leave a comment!

Brindy tried his very best to get out of the close-up graph range, but joke is on him. I changed the scale! Congrats on his great week again.


Anti-fat points (AFP) is a system designed to give some sort of value to each and every workout, regardless of type. It is based on metabolic-equivalent values out of the compendium of physical activities. Submit a workout, get AFP. Each week we post the totals for each person for the week. In addition, you may see the monthly AFP leaderboard on the right-hand sidebar. This is meant to be a fun way to encourage competition to see who can earn the most points!

The x-axis intersect is at 165 AFP, which is the target goal for everyone to achieve for the November Challenge. This graph shows who is under and over that mark.

Awesome job Sue! She really helped to boost our team average this month. Hopefully next week we can pick up the slack.


The Chain Game is a fun little system we came up with to see how many consecutive weeks a person can complete a minimum of three days of workouts. Every week in a row that a person completes the three-day goal, he or she adds one link to his or her active chain. For more information see this post!

Quite a lot of people have been relaxed in rebuilding their chains. Time to get to it.


The November Challenge

The November Challenge starts today! Please read up on the post for the explanation of the challenge.

We fell short of our goal this week, with a team average of 128 AFP. While this is still good, we really do need to step it up. Awesome job to the several people that lifted our team average!


Below is a graph showing all of the different types of workouts submitted this week.


Each week we chart our cardio-based workout distances (no cycling included). This week, another 204 kilometers have been tacked on to our journey! Hello Seattle!
