  1. Ok. I know…I know. I didn’t go to the Roach Coach when they called that it arrived here at the KHS office. I’m eating my oatmeal and drinking my water…I don’t get the food catered to me like RL….
    This is quite a challenge for me. I love food and not being able to devour it like I want is…well…torture (relatively speaking..)!

    Like Bella yelled out at the Olympics to the womens gymnastics team…”YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!”

  2. Odds: RL 3 to 2 to win.

    I think we are going to start a new poll on what color dress the loser (Vince at this point) should wear…

  3. Vince,

    Don’t get discouraged. I know its tough, I love food too! Yeah our lunches are catered daily, but that poses a struggle in it self. We get foods from all sorts of restaurants. I’m not saying that to brag, but to share how difficult it could be to work here. We also have an unlimited supply of ice cream and sodas. I was talking to some of the guys her and I had shared that I had gained weight during my first month here and they all just looked at me and said…”ah the big belly at Buy.com” they all had gained weight at some point from all the food we have available.

  4. So how does this thing work, exactly…since one of you already weighs more than the other and is substantially taller, are you factoring a percentage or something?

    Also, why not do things a touch more scientific and figure out body fat percentage with one of those cheap scales? Because, as you all must know, muscle weighs more than fat, so total weight isn’t nearly as meaningful as the ratio of muscle to fat.

  5. I believe we are going to use a % of body weight as the deciding factor for our contest. BUT, for the donation drive, it is going to be total pounds lost for RL and I that we are using. SO, if we lose a combined weight of 40 pounds… donors multiply their pledge by 40 and that is what they will be donating…If you don’t know what I’m talking about, email me at: khsmic@yahoo.com; and I’ll forward you a little sheet I typed up last Friday.
