Thanks again for your most excellent stats!   :Sparkyticus:

As an aside... anyone know how long it takes for the skin to shrink - it's starting to hang around a bit!  :58:

I had a chat with OS in the pub before the game on Monday evening. He didn't look any heavier than before.  I had the pleasure of talking to Airfix after the game too and he definitely looks a lot slimmer.

Not many candidates for the FoF bumper sticker prize yet. Finnster seems to be the only entrant.
Here's a reminder of the categories :

1. The best excuse given for not achieving their target or generally under-achieving.
2. The best use of a football cliché in this competition.

No reason why I can't enter for one of my one stickers. So, in honour of Sparky's two favourite expressions, used liberally in all his interviews :

Obviously, its tough out there and, in fairness, there are obviously a lot of temptations. Obviously, beer and wine are going to be playing a part and, in fairness, cheese doesn't help either. I've obviously been cutting out sugar and, in fairness, its obviously helping but business travel and restaurants obviously make it difficult. Although, in fairness, I have obviously been eating small portions.

Reminder: Weigh-in Day tomorrow. Only two weigh-ins left.

It will be a game of two halves now. The ball is round and anybody can come from behind. It is not over until the final whistle goes. There are still plenty of room for a few upsets. Obviously the lad Airfix has been magnificent throughout the tournament, but I fully expect some of the other lads to step up their game.  :58:

I'm going to need one more day to post the results as I have some work issue to deal with. Don't worry, it is coming, just bear with me.

Meanwhile, our FatFreddysCat was spotted inside the cooking jar...

Slim Like Gentleman Jim 2011 Championship - Week 7 Results

Admin - The last Weight-in will be on March 1st (Tuesday) and not Friday, which gives people a few extra days to press towards the finish line. The wind seems to have gone out of the sails of quite a few and a lot of tardy reporting, but since I am slow myself posting these results due to unintended work issues interfering with my FOF time, I can't kick anyone out this late in the competition.

Commentary - Only 1 more weigh-in left now and your 8 weeks of hell is over  :yay:

Airfix has now broken the world record both in pounds and percentage with one more weigh-in to go. If he can stay on course until Tuesday, a new top mark to aim towards for the Slim Jim next year will be set. This week he was again tops of the charts but the Rambler and Logicalman all clocked in a 3 pound loss as well. Naughty Boy - Must Try Harder goes to FFCSteve who added 2 pounds.

Overall in the league tables there were no changes.  Airfix holds the top spot with at 23 lbs, ahead of AlFayedsChecquebook on 14 and EpsomRaver in third with 13lbs. There are quite a few circling around 11 lbs and all could break the magical Stone barrier with a strong push before the competition ends.

In the pound for pound League table Airfix is going for the first double in Slim Jim history.  He is ahead of Alfayed and WhiteJC hanging in there by a very short nose for the bronze. Very close for third though.

As a group we have now lost a total of 164 pounds or 6.31 pounds per person

And should I have made any mistakes plase PM me. I am pretty sure it all works.

Good luck and keep it all up.

COYW!!!

I 'm not part of the competition but i came across this video and thought it could be a little extra motivation for the final leg in your effort, the extra mile as they call it.

Good luck!!!!

Thanks finn - great work.

I think there is a slight error in your numbers though.  The total loss is 164lbs, not 158, meaning the average is 6.31 per person (avg percentage = 2.89%).

Soccerbase.com has Fat Frank weighing in at 163lbs (:tom:).  We have managed to lose the tosser completely!!!  :yay:

Mr Airfix,
Thanks for sussing out that error on the total+average calculation. There was indeed a cell left out. I fixed it and updated the original result. Well spotted!!

Is there anyway of finding my starting weight and finish weight from last year Finny? Though i remember the results were none too clever then aswell  :035:  I still think we should do a May to July comp when us winter hibernaters are out and about.

Spence,

I have those on tap and was going to post a nice little comparison for those that participated both years, including total averages after the end of slimming season. I'll keep these results on tap also for next year.

On the second note, there is only one Prem title to play for each season and so is the case with Slim Jim. It is difficult to win. Perhaps you need to go look for a new manager in the window? The Special One wants to come back to England you know... :dft012:

I'd kill for a curry (amongst many many other things)... alas, they are currently prohibited.

For the record - fast approaching 4st lost now.  Not been this weight since I was on the way up first time!

You have a  pm Finny, to be honest  very poor effort by myself, but at least it stopped me gaining weight . Just started up on the dust (please chaps dont make the bags stupidly heavy, or you may find the bag has accidently ripped and spilt it's contents on your doorstep  :014: ) and the gardens  so will now lose weight quickly ( too late  :doh: ). But a very big thanks is in order for once again finding the time and effort to run the Slim like Jim .  :Sparkyticus:  :Sparkyticus:  :Sparkyticus:
