Incredible Shrinking Men….

Well, didn’t January fly by ? It only seems 5 min since Christmas. The lads in the office all went on a diet.  I say all… but that’s not strictly true. I’ve been hammering myself into shape down the gym 3-4 times a week for the last few months in preperation for this years ice climbing trip to Rjukan, Norway. I’ve been putting weight on, last thing I wanted to do was starve myself and lose precious climbing muscle. Anyway, I digress….
The lads in the office had a sliming contest. They all chipped in £5 at the start of January and whoever lost the greatest percentage of body weight by the end of the month took the lot.  Yesterday was weigh in day. There was an air of competition in the office and tension as each guy stepped onto the scales. My boss looks anorexic. I think he’s taken it a bit too far. He lost 11Kg in three weeks, which to be honest is pretty good going.
Anyway, 11 guys lost a total of 67Kg between them in 21 days.  Thats almost a whole man !  …and yet there are still a few bloaters amongst them .  Was entertaining watching the male bravado at the weigh-in anyway !
