    Selling Shares for a Weight Loss Prop Bet

    I'm looking for Even Money odds ( Was 3-1 but now even money) to lose 85 pounds within a year. Can accept just about any payment method. Prefer Bitcoin but can take anything else more or less. I will probably take up to $10,000 on this but may cut it off before $10,000. I will collect and then escrow your payment and mine with Druff before I start

    $2,000 of this is already booked by former NWP legend Empiremaker2 . He actually offered me a $2,000 freeroll but I offered to donate $667 to a charity or whatever he wants of his choice if I fail.....

    So if you put up $1,000 you get back $2000 for a $1,000 profit or put up $100 you get back $200 for a $100 profit if I fail etc......

    Bottom line is I have a year to get to my target weight of an 85 pound weight loss without surgery. If I hit the -85 pound weight loss anytime within a year I win the bet. The bet will start after I weigh in and I hope to start this within 1 week. I will weigh in on a Dr. scale somewhere and will also weigh in from an electronic scale the same day but the Dr. Scale will be the official weight used. I will update a bunch on here and twitter and will probably update my weight at least weekly and will try and blog about this a good amount


    Here are some facts and background

    1. I am currently in the worst shape of my life by far. I am 40 years and 8 months old and 6 foot and 1/2 inch tall and I just weighed in on an electronic scale @ 379.5

    2.I weighed 250 when I was 16-17 but mostly muscle and have been over 300 pounds for roughly the past 18 years and I hit 299 one time in 2010 but have bulked up with fat again

    3. When I hit the 299 mark in 2010 I believe I lost 84 pounds to get there but losing that 84 pounds took over 2 years so I have never come close to losing this amount of weight in a year

    4. Few things that could work against me here. As I get older my body takes a longer time to recover from workouts etc.. and soreness lasts much longer because I am carrying around more than double the weight of a man who weighs 189 pounds

    5. I have had about 4 or 5 cortizone injections in my lower back since 2009 so if this acts up thru the year I could be in a lot of pain and hurt or eliminate workouts etc... And I get some general soreness in my right knee when working out for multiple days in a row

    Looking to get this started within a week so if anyone wants to bet then reply

    $2,000 of this is already booked by former NWP legend Empiremaker2 so I have $13,000 left to book and the min amount I will accept for a bet is $100. He actually offered me a $2,000 freeroll but I offered to donate $667 to a charity or whatever he wants of his choice if I fail.....

    Walk baby. Once you get your endurance up you can go for miles and it's great for the mood. And it works. I've seen it with my brother. It's free, you go when you want and just wait till the results come in.

    I cant get involved in this financially because the thought of profiting off you failing to get healthy makes me sick to my stomach, but more importantly because I think you can nail the shit out of that goal.

    Also my apologies in advance for what will be an absolute torrent of unwelcome and unrealistic weight loss advice in T minus 3.... 2...

    Can't be even money. Not even close. You know how many times I have set this goal and failed? A lot

    I think it's about even money - I got a good read on your tone that you are going to crush this goal.
