16 Jan Fauxbesity Challenge: The Wrap-up
I didn’t win the fauxbesity challenge. I’m a very competitive person and this upsets me greatly but the competition was fierce and with a challenge like this everyone wins.
My weigh-ins over the course of the 8 week period are here:
Date Weight % 11/7/2011 193.3 0.00% 11/14/2011 191.5 0.93% 11/21/2011 191.4 0.98% 11/28/2011 184.9 4.35% 12/5/2011 190.1 1.66% 12/12/2011 187.5 3.00% 12/19/2011 193.5 -0.10% 12/26/2011 187.5 3.00% 1/2/2012 185 4.29%
My low was actually a 181lb weigh-in which I recorded two weeks in a row before and after Thanksgiving. Those recordings were taken mid-week and didn’t count as official weigh-ins. I did get cocky half way through and fell off the program with some family in town. No excuses though – play like a champion.
On the final day, I tried to make a comeback by using this hot bath dehydration method. I last an hour in the bath and lost a bit over 3lbs in that period of time. It was really hard to stay in the tub as prescribed and I have a whole new respect for guys that are about to shed 15-20 pounds in a single day doing this. Nuts. This is not fun at all.
In the end, the victor lost almost 20lbs and I send my praise (and money) his way. I look forward to giving this a shot again next year.
