GutCheckCast 0 - We begin our losing proposition.

Hi, and welcome to the GutCheckCast podcast. This is episode zero, where Doug and Zach reveal that they are typical gut-toting geek dads. And they're going to do something about it.

In this episode, they mention:
The Flickr Group.
Zach's Phone.
Mountain Dew.
and their current weights, plans for the week, and ultimate goals.

If you have a story to share, successes, challenges, tips, etc., leave a voice mail at 206-666-4196, or send an e-mail to gutcheckcast *at* gmail *dot* com.

Cripes. I'm 35, 5'9", and (last check) about 230# Sounds like I'm right there with you guys!

Gonna work with y'all. 37yo. 5' 8 1/2". 290 sounds about right. I wanna say 280, but let's be honest here... I fear the scale.

Good luck guys -- it's definitely worth the effort. As I think Doug knows, I went on a similar quest last year (chronicled over on Nuketown) and went from 225ish to a low of 196, and then bounced back to somewhere in between (I think I'm around 212 right now) over the winter. At 6'1", I wasn't hugely overweight, but was a far cry from "thin".

I'm looking to get back down to the mid-190s by summer time, so the GutcheckCast has arrived just in time!
