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!



All over the place this week . . .  pretty funny to watch!

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!


Several go-getters this week, awesome job guys.

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

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.

And.. for the main event of today, The Biggest Loser Finale! Here is the results!


Congrats is in order for Patrick, who has claimed overall victory! He has lost an impressive 4.8% since the start of this, totaling 10 pounds even from the start of the program.
