I read this article in the Times the other day: Put Your Money Where Your Fat Is. The more I thought about it the more brilliant it seemed.
So a friend of mine is also interested in the idea, and we're currently thinking about ways to make the bet fair. She's a lot smaller than I am, but I think we have sort of the same body situation. Not obese, but carrying an annoying amount of extra.
Has anybody else done anything like this? Any suggestions on how to calculate fair goals?
Fatbet.net and www.makemoneylosingweight.com (referenced in the Times article) seem to be good resources--I checked them out.
I'll let you know how it goes!
