For those who have their name on the graph below that haven’t already emailed me their starting weights, please email them to petalwobh AT today.  Yes, today, and every Saturday.

A post with all of the starting weights will be published tomorrow.

    Had to chuckle over the y-axis Pete. No doubt will see a different one at the first weigh in ;)

    • It auto adjusts, so yes, it will reflect the actual range of blubber, not some idealised version of it.

  • Just sent you an e-mail Pete; my blubber needs a challenge, and the picture above is a little too close to the truth for comfort!

  • As at 1:08 pm, a nudge to Cam, Travis, Mike, Sponge and Donnovan.

    I’ve just added Keeping Stock as “KS” – welcome.

    • Travis Poulson

      I’ll report in soon, I’m off to find another set of scales for a second opinion.

      • dumbshit

        is that one set for each foot

        • testicle

        • Travis Poulson

          Bastard :)

    • Already sent mine in

  • Greg

    Beckham a year into retirement.

  • Sponge

    Sent – I never realised how ugly my toes were….

  • Sidey

    I see what’s going on – delay the initial starting point weigh-in until there’s a decent roast & a couple of pints sloshing around, then do the rest of the weigh-ins first thing in the morning. Instant advantage! That’s a kind of cunning you don’t get from eating celery sticks all day.

    Nothing like a target to focus the mind though, I’ve lost 2 kg in the last two weeks just by wearing a fitbit distance tracker thingy, set a daily goal & log food to the webpage (started at 81kg @ I’m 6ft so not much to lose really). Makes you think twice about what you’re eating if you have to record it.

    All worked well until last weekend, did 12km on Friday staggering around Adelaide’s nightlife, then the sum total of 89 steps all Saturday! Not good.

  • Keeping Stock (KS) and Tahaloa are on the board. Welcome.

  • Travis Poulson

    Right, I’m weighed in you fatties, 10km run time.

    • Shutup porky, I’m drinking a beer. The road is long, etc, and as Sidey has noted, winning will take the kind of cunning that doesn’t come by nibbling celery sticks (nor smelly, worn out trainers, I’ll warrant!)

      • Travis Poulson

        There’s no winners, only losers!

        • Loser? A comfortable, familiar place, I’m afraid heheheh.

          • Travis Poulson

            Keep drinking until you’ve convinced yourself you’re the best.

          • Sponge

            Working on it… starting to look pretty good.

  • Checked in, weighed in, drinking beer and eating all sorts of no good all through last week to bulk up before droppin’ it like it’s HOT. Yo.

  • Lofty

    I have just sent off my last minute notification.

    I am in, here we go, here we go, here we go………up yours you fat bastards…the race is on, catch me if you can.

    I am I still allowed G&T’s ?

    • Travis Poulson

      Yes, and lots of them. In fact, make a daily habit of it.

      • Lofty

        Cheers Travis, you are a lifesaver I think I shall appoint you my personal trainer, sounds like you have the good oil.

  • As at 8:13 pm, these are the people we know of. If you’re name is not there, and you want it there, you’re going to be annoying ;)

    • Lofty

      How come my designated colour is Karitane yellow, is squittering the way to lose weight ?

      • They made me black cause they know I’m ex Saffa and wanted to have a go. Not so fucking funny when the prejudice is on the other foot, I tell ya.

    • Lofty

      Where’s Trevor the muss? He likes a challenge against the whale.
      Mind you I saw him in the Koro club a couple of weeks ago, not too fat, but I never realised what a pygmie he is…explains a lot, small mans syndrome and all.

      • Bunswalla

        Yeah but Lofty next to you Kareem Abdul-Jabar looks like Bill Rowling.
