Who's the Big Winner?
Who's the big winner? I am.
Today, my gym, In Shape (in Emeryville), informed me that I, Joe, am indeed the big winner. I won the Biggest Winner contest, a promotional event to see who could lose the most weight. I won, not because I lost the most weight, but because I lost the most body fat (3.5%) of any member over the two-month span (my weight stayed the same). For my efforts, I received a T-shirt, canvas tote bag, and $50 (which I have to split with my personal trainer, Adam, as per our agreement).
The contest wasn't fair, really, since I was already in pretty good shape, and the really fat people had an unfair advantage, being that they simply had more with which to work.
I am not a hero. I am just a man. And, today, like Mikey, I am the big winner...
