Who will be the Biggest Loser?

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

It started as a bet between Mr. Hopia Rico and Mr. Dimsum-and-siomai Gerard on who can lose the most percentage weight before Christmas. The bet was supposed to commence after the Subic Marathon and end before Christmas so the two could still partake of the holiday feast. Within a week's time the word spread around and the contest ballooned to 23 participants.

What is the Biggest Loser Contest (BLC)?
A Fun Weight Loss Contest among runners

Sam, thank you for actively looking for additions to my prizes.

Ms. funnybunny, pasensya di ako makahanap ng bigger pics mo, kaya ayun...Cute and sexy naman, di ba? :-)

Tracy, pag pumayat na ako kakain ka na ng alikabok ng Mizuno ko (si Price)...haha

Rod, payat ka na. Di mo na kailangan ito.

Marvin Rae, feeling ko talaga ikaw ang mananalo kung sumali ka eh...

Wilson, yup, this is so fun, especially the trash talking and the side betting. Haha. Some participants like me just want to appear meaner and sexier. Haha

Good luck everyone! Kahit di manalo, everyone is sure to benefit from this :)
