THANK YOU HEBREW NATIONAL!!! Yes, before I reveal the winner for week # 5 in the Original Retro Brand's FIGHT FOR FIT CHALLENGE, I must pay homage to the one food in which I always crave, but thought I could not have. The Hebrew National 97% Fat Free hot dog is delicious, spicy, filling, and only 40 Calories! Perhaps it is not filled with much nutritional value, but in this 1,500 calorie a day battle for flavor and fulfillment, I give it 10 out of 10 Matzoh Balls!!
Now on to the real issue at hand. Since last Monday, I have lost another 2lbs, bringing my current weight to 233lbs. So now I have lost 11 lbs in 33 days. I must say I am a bit frustrated as I cut my calories 500 a day, and still can't seem to drop 3 in a week. The other area I need to work on is toning. Indeed it is satisfying to lose the weight - I'm feeling better, and the pants are loosening up, BUT....being as soft as an Original Retro Brand shirt is not a good thing (these shirts are REALLY SOFT!). Time to get serious in the push-ups and pull-ups department.
Ok, ok, enough of that stuff. Time to announce the winner of the FREE Original Retro Brand shirt for week # 5, and that winner is John Kim who guessed 233 on the nose. We will be sure to notify John and announce what shirt he has chosen on the Original Retro Brand, fan page on Facebook. If you have not won a Free shirt yet, you still have 7 more weeks to take a shot. Simply guess my weight before next Monday, and enter that guess in the post/view comment section at the end of the latest FIGHT FOR FIT blog post.
As has become my weekly practice, I'd like to thank those of you wishing me good luck in my quest to lose all this dang blubber by Halloween, so I can dress up as an Original Retro Brand model, and fit my old XL Georgia shirt. Thanks to the guys at 24HR fitness for sending me a bodybugg - I love it, The biggest thanks have to go to my bosses at Original Retro brand for letting me do this silly thing!
I continue to sponsor the American Cancer society, by donating $5 a day to the Relayforlife. I urge you to please give generously to the charity of your choice. You can follow my progress (or lack of..) on Twitter and Facebook.
