Resolution: turn back the clock and regain youthful fitness.
Additional motivation: seeing a friend and fellow blogger blow a fuse about excess weight.
Solution: a prop bet.
Objective: Shed flab;
Terms: Weigh-in either at next Winter Gathering (if both parties attend) or January 1st, 2010 (with results verified by acceptable third party);
Targets: PL needs to weigh in at 160 lbs; Riggs 220 lbs;
Stakes: If either party fails to make their target weight, they will give the other party a bottle of single malt Scotch of the other's choosing (price limit TBD).
If anyone else wants to participate, please drop me a line in the comments and I'll add you to the bet.
