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!
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!
A major congratulations goes out to Adrienne, who broke the 190 barrier she has been after. She snuck right under it this week, another awesome week for her! Soon enough she will pass hat 185 mark and be competing with Dave and Raice!
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 (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!
Huge props to Suz who worked her tail off again this week. Huge numbers. Also, I am totally jealous of Susie and Jeff who are out skiing deep powder out in Utah. Well deserved points!
The threshold is back to 100 AFP, Green is over and Red is under. Try to get 100 AFP and turn your bar green!
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 always, if you were slow to get data in, your chain will be re-instated!
The Biggest Loser
In a previous post I talked about a new Biggest Loser challenge. Read up on the post here.
Here are the results from week 4, an interesting turn of events in the top three!
To help describe this graph: The light blue bar represents this past weeks change from the previous weeks weight. The dark blue is the total percentage chain since starting biggest loser.
The winner of this week is Mom, who lost a spectacular 2.07%. Pat is still in the overall lead, though Raice is in hot pursuit. I have a feeling some Fat tuesday bacon was involved?
Another 232 kilometers are added to our Trek back to Buffalo. Only 1641 km to go!
Dave and I seem to have a double helix going on with our weights. 😛 I may have found my downfall in this weight challenge though. I just discovered Dollar Burger Nights at Bar Louie. Burgers for a dollar each- and on Tuesday nights, of all nights. Woof.
$1 burgers are the devil — stay away!
Yep… damn it, it looks like next week is my turn to lose weight. I guess I need to get working on that.
My bar is green! YES!
