Fat politics aside, I'd like to offer my congratulations to the Biggest Losers from TRI-DRS:
Linae, who lost a total of 35.3% (body fat reduction and body weight loss), winning a total of $450.22; and
Brad*, who lost a total of 25.6% (body fat reduction and body weight loss), winning a total of $226.10*.
Well done! Full results for the 12 weeks are tabulated here.
I did okay, with a total of 9.3%, which is just fine for slow and steady body composition change. Let's just keep headed in the same direction. While I don't believe that a modest amount of body fat is the dire health threat that it's made out to be, it sure slows a triathlete down doing all the work of lugging it all around.
*Late Edition: Brad directed me to send his $226.10 winnings to the Challenged Athletes Foundation in support of their efforts in making athletics accessible to everyone. We were all particularly inspired by CAF-supported Sarah Reinertson competing at Ironman Hawaii this year. Thank you to Brad and the members of TRI-DRS who participated in the challenge and made this generous contribution possible.
