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!
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!
Some of you may notice a bit of a difference in this graph. I now am graphing the monthly-average weight for each person, rather then every single data-point. I think it is easier to see the trends in weight by taking the monthly average, and unclutters the graph a bit too.
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 (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!
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 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!
The Biggest Loser
In a previous post I talked about a new Biggest Loser challenge. Read up on the post here.
Here are the results from week 3.
To help describe this graph: The light blue bar represents this past weeks change from the previous weeks weight. The dark blue is the total percentage chain since starting biggest loser.
The winner of this week is Adrienne, who lost a spectacular 2.65%. Pat is firmly in the lead with nearly a 4% loss since the start. Can anyone catch up?!
Another 348 kilometers are added to our Trek back to Buffalo. Through Fargo and beyond!
