Portly Angler 2013

Sorry as I have been super busy, even with several friendly reminders to get my bleep in gear. But we should kick this off soon. Sooooo;

Its that time of year - S-B Portly Angler competition . Have you found yourself in this position before?

  • Waders losing watertight integrity?
  • Looking more and more like a Gray Seal to Great Whites?
  • Wearing your wetsuit on new moons only?
  • Canal Bike slowing down more going up the hills?

Have you been asking yourself:

"Does this wetsuit make me look fat?"

Knock down some of that spare tire, and join S-B members Biggest Friekin' Looser competition a/k/a the Portly Angler

2009 winner - ZachS
2010 winner - JRedfly
2011 winner - Kearp1
2012 winner - NewJack

Cost, is one plug to winner. How will be determined in the next couple weeks.

When does it begin? Officially: Sunday January 13th - Ends Sunday June 2nd.


  • Weekly weigh ins?
  • Track percentage lost with greatest percentage winning.
  • No surgical or like methods. A friend had lap band surgery and lost 80 pounds in a couple months mostly due to the resulting infection that he almost died from. This doesn't mention the nasty operation needed to get the infection under control.

What else?

Who's in:

Me

I always say I'm in then bail, but I'm happy to report that of all the 70lbs I lost last year, i've only put ten back on. So I will be less militant this off-season at the gym and just keep up the maintenance. But I do need to get my endurance going for the Boston TM in May. Good luck to everyone....

I'm in. Started at the gym last week. Psyched that my company moved, so I can get to the gym in the AM before I walk to the train.

In at 176. Thanks Slingah for running this it is greatly appreciated. I actually started losing weight 3 years ago which resulted directly from joining the portly angler. I am 55 years old and have lost over 50 pounds, so that means anyone can do it too. It's all about getting healthy so we can increase our chances of being here for our friends and family for a very long time. Plus I just don't want to be breathing in my 80s I want to be living in my 80s.

Good Luck everyone!

No problem James. I am on exactly the same page as you. I want to be healthy and mobile when I'm old. I'm down 22lbs in 2.5 mos.
I'll join in too. Weighing in @ 218#

Sorry I 'm late, computer issues.

Up 1.5 at 177.5. Worked my butt off this week, ran a total of 30 miles and stuck to meal plan. Sounds like I need a new meal plan and nutritionist. A friend of mine says never trust a chubby nutritionist.

I was going to weigh in weekly but today I am not so sure. In at 181 up 3.5 pounds WTF.

Pretty much stuck to diet and worked out, not happy.

Its weeks like this you just want to give up but I guess I will just put in a few extra miles today and see how it goes.

I heard that IPA diet is expensive but it cost a lot to eat right.
