I'm glad The Office has strayed from the BBC version. The only way its ever going to get respect is by not being a carbon copy of the original.

Jamie Pressley? Ugh, she even looks like white trash in the show (which she's supposed to) but I can name about 10,000 chicks hotter than her.

Eat plenty of donuts before the weigh-in. They're pretty fast acting for adding weight! ;-D

In terms of losing weight, I would try to eat a lot of fruit and lettuce/salads. Cleans you out pretty good and is good for you. Fruit choices should be grapes, clementines, oranges and grapefruit. ;-)

Drink lots of beer, but don't eat anything. The empty calories will stay empty without food and you'll lose weight from constant peeing and, maybe, vomiting. Of course, you can vomit just by watching the actual show "Biggest Loser" but then that would make you the biggest loser here.

Like me :-/

Each participant is putting $20 in the pot. I work for a local govt so I have no idea how many employees there are or how many would try this competition. It really wouldn't take that many to make this worthwhile - $20 a shot adds up fast.

I need to call that lady running it and ask her some questions about the weigh in.

Thanks for all the advice so far. I don't know about the not eating or drinking 2 days before the final weigh in and flushing out my system. I've never done that stuff before. Where in the world would I find a colonic drink?! Is it healthy to do?

By the way here's what I've got to work with - I'm 5'9 210, and just six years ago I was 170 before I moved to the deep fried south and got married. Not sure I could drop that much in two months though.

You could cheat and take some diuretics.

Yes. Drink a gallon or so of beer or water before you weigh in. Thatll boost your weight really quickly, add a few pounds, which you will subsequently lose in a long trip to the john.

As for losing wieght, dont do any weight loss drugs or anthing.
Heres my suggestions.

Elimate white flour and processed foods. Thats the one common thread throughout almost all diet programs, quick-wieght loss infomercials, and healthcare proffessionals.

Take a multivitamen or combination of vitamins everyday. Gives your body good "fuel" to work with.

Eat 5 smaller meals throughout the day instead of skipping one meal and only eating 2 bigger ones.

As for working out, do something you are willing to do every day. Like maybe jog for 20 minutes before you go to work, then work out when you get home for 30 minutes. (Preferrably something that wont replace it with muscle, like lifting wieghts, because the muscle will replace fat and you wont lose much.)

It's a hell of a drug.
