An Offer You Can’t Refuse
Last year, I had an amazing run of weekly weigh-ins and felt as though there were some sort of magic, manic energy that infused the site.
Now that I’m thisclose to my goal weight, the intensity isn’t always there. I still want to lose weight… still want to get fit… but it doesn’t seem to be the driving force behind what I do each day.
Please don’t misunderstand me: I’m happy to no longer be obese, no longer be overweight, but…
Well, actions speak louder than words.
I want someone else to lose weight on Jack Sh*t, Gettin’ Fit.
I want someone who’s having trouble getting it done on their own to share their journey with me.
I want to be the Bodfather.
I’ve already tried it with a couple of individuals, just sharing email encouragement and support. However, it petered out in both cases because I think I made it too easy for them to blow it off.
This time… this time it’ll be a Family affair. I want to share someone’s journey with the folks that hang out over here.
Here’s how it would work: you email me at jacksh.tgettinfit(at)gmail(dot)com and express your interest. If we can agree on some basic rules, I’ll train the JSGF spotlight on you and let you share the support and encouragement of some of the most fantastic readers you could ever hope to find.
Make no mistake; it won’t be easy. I can be a very demanding goombah, and I’m gonna make you share your weight, your measurements, your photos, everything. And I'm going to stay after you like nobody's business.
We’ll celebrate with you as you reach every milestone and we will help you to your feet whenever you stumble. I don’t have any silver bullets for you, but I’ll be in your corner every round.
That’s the carrot, and here’s the stick: if you quit on me, well… if I told you what I’m going to do to you in that event, I’d have to kill you.
Weight loss is the Family business, and I’d like to be your Bodfather.
