I'm a firefighter and a group of us at the station are in for a friendly wager, 8-week/16-week "weight loss" challenge (weigh in at the half and at the end).
I'm up against three guys that are pretty big and kinda chubby--I'm the lightest and the leanest of the four. So, how is the best and fairest way to measure "weight loss"???
I proposed 2 factors: 1) weight loss as a percentage of overall body weight; and 2) loss of body fat percentage by use of calipers. each factor weighed equally. I even proposed an "overall appearance" factor but there was no way to objectively measure this.
any other thoughts? anyone ever hold a challenge like this before? I wanna win!!
