Fat Club!

Fat Club

I am Jack’s over-inflated seasonal gut

Christmas is always a great excuse to cram our pudgy little faces with chocolate, biscuits, sweets, cake and booze.

Unfortunately, this leaves a guilty layer of lard on our bodies which can be used to make soap in clever films.

So we’ve started the new year with a brand new challenge, and it’s to get our employees as fit as a fiddle!

If you’re not familiar with the programme “The Biggest Loser”, we’re basically ripping this off and tailoring it to suit our needs…

I am Jack’s inquisitive mind – Where, When, How?

We have a weekly production meeting where we’ll all be weighed (or submit our weight via dated photo) on Monday mornings.

Everyone should wear the same clothes to the meeting each week in order to not add lbs to their weight and hopefully have consistent readings.

Weight loss will be measured as a percentage against our initial weight. Why percentage? Because the heavier you are, the easier you lose lbs doing the same exercises as a slimmer person… it’s just fairer.

Example:
Initial Weight = 200 lbs
Total lbs lost = 10 lbs 
Total % lost = 5% ... ( (10lbs/200lbs)*100 )

We’ll be giving away a prize for the “Monthly Biggest Loser” and the “Annual Biggest Loser” to keep ourselves motivated (and we’ll try not to make it a chocolate bar).

The 8 Rules of Fat Club

  1. Talk about “Fat Club”
  2. TALK ABOUT “FAT CLUB”
  3. If someone fails to weigh in, 2lbs are added to their weight
  4. Everyone weighs in
  5. One person on the scales at a time
  6. No jumpers, no shoes
  7. The scales take as long as they take
  8. If you gain weight (3lbs or more) 3 times, you’re disqualified
