REEL RHINO'S FAT OLYMPICS: Commence Phase II - FAT AMERICA




Phase one of the Fat Olympics is complete...12 competitors, 6 "winners" -- or those with decent weight loss....3 "in the money" winners.

1st place took home just under $1100
2nd place just under $600
3rd place just under $400

Yes, that means that there were 6 of us that didn't fare as well...myself included. I lost 17 lbs over 12 weeks. However I lost 21 lbs in the first two weeks alone, so I struggled considerably from there!

--------------------------

JOIN ME...LET'S SHED POUNDS AND GET HEALTHY TOGETHER!!

Tell your friends...the more the merrier and the more exciting the action...and the better the PAYOUT (more on that below).

The Olympics are through...Phase II....FAT AMERICA...
LET'S DO THIS!! 


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

!!!!NEW!!!! & !!!!UPDATED!!!!
RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR FAT AMERICA 2016
(Phase II)

ALL MONEY WILL BE PAID TO/FROM VIA PAYPAL

The FAT AMERICA "private group" will be formed on Facebook and all penalties, initial weigh-in, and on-going weigh-ins will be reported directly on the site. I will do the mid-competition weigh-in and the final tally, but everyone post on the Facebook group on-going for transparency and accountability.

PAYPAL ME HERE: ReelRhino@gmail.com

On PayPal there is an option for sending friends $ so there is no charge involved. That is the method that you should use so we don't lose money in this endeavor...you must have PAYPAL TO PLAY.

On any initial payment...in the "note" area, indicate your name (in case I don't recognize your e-mail) and your home city.

$50.00 INITIAL BUY IN

You will have to pay $50 to play...if all goes well, you'll get $25 of it back.
(See below in payouts).
Like M Night Shyamalan and Chubby Checker...the ReelRhino loves the TWIST!!
  • $5.00 penalty for each instance/day with alcohol use
  • $5.00 penalty for each instance/day with tobacco use
  • $5.00 penalty per fast food meal (C'MON!! THIS SHOULD BE MORE!!)
    • Fast food is whatever you make it...for me, I include movie popcorn in the description of fast food...I know I shouldn't eat it...
  • $5.00 penalty for a week in which you don't exercise at least 5 days in the 7 day week. Exercise consists of a minimum of a 1 mile walk
    ...YOU CAN FIND TIME TO WALK AT LEAST ONE MILE A DAY FOR FIVE DAYS IN A WEEK!
    • ***The mile a day walk can be found in many equivalents. Yoga, biking, swimming, weights, etc...the deal is...exercise in some form 5 days a week.
    • ***The mile a day walk cannot be you walking around as a part of your daily routine...it is walking or exercise of some kind strictly for exercise...or...some mitigating activity that adequately taxed you for the day (ex. You go to Disney for the day, or the Zoo, etc...that's a lot of walking...it can count).
  • $10.00 re-buy at the mid-period weigh-in if you have 0 lbs weight loss or weight gain as of 11/21/2016.
  • $25.00 Penalty to QUIT....QUITTER!!! :-)

PENALTIES SHOULD BE PAID IN ON A WEEKLY BASIS OUR WEEK RUNS MON - SUN
MONDAYS ARE PAY-THE-PIPER DAYS and your PayPal payment should include what you are paying for...and you post on the Facebook group page your amount in and for what you paid.

By the end of each MONDAY all penalties should be paid so I can update the running pot by Tuesday on this site.


INITIAL WEIGH-IN IS 10/10/2016 - 10/17/2016
YOU MUST WEIGH IN CONSISTENTLY FROM THE SAME SCALE
The sooner you start, the more you can lose! 
Whatever day you weigh-in is when it begins for you...do you need a couple more days of eat as you like...take it. Your initial weigh-in must be recorded by the 17th.

You can buy-in anytime and I will add you to the site...as long as the weigh-in is by the 17th, you are good to go.

The weigh-in schedule will be as follows:

Initial Weigh-In: By 10/17/2016
Mid-Olympic Weigh-In: 11/21/2016
Final Weigh-In: 12/31/2016

DAYS IN PHASE II OF THE COMPETITION: 75

THIS IS AN HONOR SYSTEM COMPETITION...THE GOAL IS HEALTH...and among friends...some $$$ to make it interesting!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PAYOUTS:

ANYONE WHO LOSES 7%
Body fat or more...you get $25 bucks back on your buy-in - half your cash back!
(This may seem like a weird #, but of 12 competitors in Phase I, only 2 hit 10%...this competition is a few days shorter also.)

MOST ACTUAL POUNDS LOST
gets all $50 of their buy-in back

After that is cleared up...
1st Place (highest % lost): 50% of the remaining pot
2nd Place (2nd highest % lost): 30% of the remaining pot
3rd Place (3rd highest % lost): 20% of remaining pot
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Myself and Fellow Fat Olympian Russ in March...we are still fat post-contest...we need more!

Me in 2013, with fellow Fat Olympian, Ross, and actual Olympian Kayla Harrison...and her real Gold medal...in 2013...me at 280 lbs and fit.

I have been told by several that I should consider "the surgery" and to those that have, whatever it takes to get it done...for me, I feel I can get there on my own...earned is never easy...and getting to 280 was as hard as anything I'd ever done...add 4 years of old age and it's even harder...

Come and struggle with me :-)

Fat Americans...UNITE!
