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. Let’s see what data was submitted this week!

Weight Loss

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!



As always, if you would like to get in on the weight-loss game, leave a comment or email me and we can get you going!

Anti-Fat Points

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 people in gray are not counted towards the group average, as they were less then three days this week. People in red failed to meet the 165 target, and people in green exceeded the goal. Our team average was 127 AFP. This is a good step forward, but not quite there yet!

The Chain-Game

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!

As mentioned last week, the chain game has been restarted for the 2013 year! Start building your chain early, and shoot for as many weeks as possible before the year ends!


I am excited to see so many people start the first week of 2013 strong. Keep it up!

The November Challenge

The November Challenge is still running, though we were short this week. I honestly thing next week we will hit the target.


Another 154km this week!
