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).

You’ll only get that title if you’ve seen Fight Club 😉
