This is the third installment of Member Spotlight, where we sit down with a member of the community that not everyone may know. This week Pat, the recent winner of the 2FNS Biggest Loser Challenge was kind enough to chat!
I’ve known you for quite a while now, going back nearly ten years actually. You have gone through many cycles on the weight-loss front, having done Atkins, portion control, exercise and so forth. Through your experience, what has worked, and hasn’t worked for you?
I suppose that is a very Pat-approach / know-yourself approach, I like it. Those in our audience who don’t know you, you have type 1 diabetes. Have you noticed any benefits to losing the past 25 pounds? What kind of impact has getting healthier had on that? Any improvements on A1C levels or other measurables?
Whatever the reason, good to hear. I believe you would agree with me when I say, “Spite makes right.” What has motivated you to get involved in 2 Fat Nerds, besides my constant pestering? What motivates you to stay on track?
Whatever works! On the bright side, if you keep up the rate you are going at, you might actually achieve your stupid unrealistic goal. Last Wednesday you earned the title 2 Fat Nerds Biggest Loser. You lost the most percentage weight over the past eight weeks, and actually the most weight in pounds too. You left a comment that you wanted that type of reporting to continue, why? What did you like about that challenge?
Often you give valuable feedback on what should be improved in the system and the blog in general. Do you use any other apps, tools or systems to help you with your goals? I believe you have been walking pretty regularly during lunch and other times, what are your workout goals and how do you obtain them?
That amuses me, since I look forward to earning more delicious food when I work out =P. Lastly, You are a pretty active gamer, are you currently playing anything exciting or new right now? Are you playing the new SC2 release?
