so, after losing a very large quantity of weight a few years back in the ‘are you a bigger loser than marko?’ contest run by ys, i have inched up and down on the weight loss trajectory. but if averaged out, it’s been a 3 year-long slow climb. and i’m super-big again.
time to shed some.
i’d had this growing desire to do something, but — apparently — not the willingness. the scales finally tipped (ha!), and i’m charging forward. my wife and i are doing this together, which helps a lot. but, ultimately, my accountability comes from my friend john, with whom i have launched ‘the bikini car wash weight loss challenge.’ bottom line, john and i are competing to see who can lose more weight from our starting weigh-in (which was sunday, october 31 — halloween), ending on our scheduled final weigh-in, thursday evening, december 16. i’ll see at that point whether or not i’m going to pick it up again after the holidays.
i’m using the fantastic isagenix cleanse again (super-healthy, and great at helping the pounds come off; if you want a hook-up, let me know), as well as a treadmill. with more than two weeks down so far, i’ve already lost about 17 pounds.
when john and i were thinking of a prize for winning, i suggested the loser has to buy dinner at this particular steak joint i really dig. but john felt that was lame motivation (and he was probably right). his suggestion?
whoever loses has to wash the other guy’s car wearing nothing but a bikini.
at first i resisted, suggesting we maybe limit it to short-shorts, or a speedo. but the more i thought about it, the more i felt the strength of the accountability is in it’s extremism. so, bikini it is.
a friend of mine, who i will not reveal — because of his fear of getting in trouble for googling images of women in bikinis for this purpose while on the church computer — came up with a few lovely photoshopped pics of what my contest loss might look like. i’ll post 2 of ’em here – the other one isn’t fit for posting (these barely are).

Okay, those pictures are just disturbing. But you do have nice eyes.
Funny you should post this…I’m getting ready to start a competition too for the same reason (but being a mom, competing with another mom…the loser cleans the winner’s house before Christmas company). I HATE CLEANING!
So…what exactly are you doing? Just the cleanse…the cleanse and fat burning pack? There are a billion things on that site…and NO PRICES!! I could use this…reference please?!
You can wash my car any time!
Dude….serious kudos for stepping up, we all want (need) a healthy Marko leading the youth ministry charge for years to come.
It used to be that every time we saw you next, it was a different hairstyle. This, however, is getting out of hand. :)
This of course is ridiculous and self indulgent. Sorry friend…
don’t cause another brother to stumble…
That. Is. Freaking. Awesome. :) Soooo funny
Dude, the hello kitty tat and the weed killer in picture two made the whole post worthwhile.
I think this is crazy and you know why….
