THE ROCK FATHERRock Father vs. Rock Father - For the past nine weeks, James Zahn and Tom George (read the kick-off story here) have been engaged in the early stage of a year-long journey to not only lose weight, but get fit. These two Work-at-Home Dads had let time and their jobs take their toll on their personal well-being. For each week of the journey, we'll find out how their efforts are paying off. This afternoon, Sunday, March 2, 2014, both men did their weigh-in... and these are the results.


Starting Weight: 328.4 | Last Week: 313 | Current Weight: 313

About Week 9, James states: "Flat. Same weight this week as last week. EXACTLY. Honestly, I was expecting a gain because of two things: Beer and Pizza. I had both this past week, straying from the plan, and didn't get much exercise, either. Seeing that Tom and I both are having some ups-and-downs, I think we might need an extra 'kick' in this challenge. Still eying that DDP Yoga program as a possibility, or a couple of other, more localized programs. My issue is time outside the house (kid-free) would be well after dark."

Starting Weight: 396.4 | Last Week: 369.6 | Current Weight: 372.6

About Week 9, Tom states: "This week was a much needed wake up call...

FiXT Publicity's business is BOOMING this month, so I've made every excuse that there is to NOT exercise each day. This week I coupled NO exercise with eating all the wrong things. I GAINED 3 pounds. Never again! This week I get back on track. I somehow lost my motivation over the past couple of weeks. I will exercise every day this week, and get back to my low sodium diet. I expect great results in the coming week."
So far, we're tracking a 16 pound loss by James, and a 23.8 pound loss by Tom.

Stay tuned!

And since this is a challenge, how about CHALLENGE OF THE GO-BOTS?
