Rock Father vs. Rock Father – It’s been eleven weeks since James Zahn and Tom George (read the kick-off story here) began 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’ve been checking-in to find out how their efforts are paying off. This afternoon, Sunday, March 16, 2014, both men did their weigh-in… and these are the results.
JAMES ZAHN aka THE ROCK FATHER
Starting Weight: 328.4 | Last Week: 313 | Current Weight: 310
About Week 11, James states: “I can’t believe we’re eleven weeks into this already. Three pounds lost this week, which is sorta surprising because I did have a couple of meals at restaurants, but on all but one day, I did stay under my calorie goal. Those great lab results last week, plus another few pounds off is a win. I’d still like to amp things up an accelerate the weight loss, but time is a factor. But lack of time is how we got here in the first place. 10 more pounds to drop, and I’ll be under 300!”
TOM GEORGE of FiXT Publicity
Starting Weight: 396.4 | Last Week: 368.8 | Current Weight: 371.2
About Week 11, Tom states: “I gained 2.4 pounds this week. I haven’t been exercising for a few weeks now due to our added publicity workload. Added stress + no exercise + not eating right = weight gain. I hope to get back on track this week. Looking forward to warmer weather so I can get out and walk at night. This winter has been BRUTAL.”
So far, we’re tracking a 19 pound loss by James, and a 25.2 pound loss by Tom.
Some tunes for the week? How about “Just Another Victim” by HELMET and HOUSE OF PAIN from the excellent Soundtrack to JUDGEMENT NIGHT. No real reason, other than it being a great song…
