Father not Fat-ter


[tweetmeme source= ‘dadpad’ only_single=false]

I ran across another dad who recently lost 50 lbs and commented on a blog post that I wrote about why it’s important for dads to take care of themselves physically (see my post, The Weight of a Father).  He found that post and shared with me how he had lost 50 lbs (way to go!!) and was beginning a Father’s Day challenge to see if Dad’s from around the globe could collectively drop 1,000,000 pounds by Father’s Day 2011.  That’s a big goal.  Let’s see, that’s 2,739 lbs per day for the year.  So, if there are 20,000 dads who need to lose 50 lbs or 40,000 who need to lose 25 lbs, the goal can be reached.  So, what about you, dad?  Here’s the link to his site if you feel like dropping a little tonage in 2011.  Never a better time than right now!  I’ve got about 25 to lose so I’m in.
