I’m Calling Out Tony Posnanski, the Anti-Jared!!!

That’s right. I’m starting this new thing where I call out other weight loss bloggers. The first on my list is Tony Posnanski, otherwise known as The Anti-Jared. This guys is a weight loss superstar. He has lost like 200 lbs and kept it off. He used Weight Watchers and a rigorous workout ethic to get to where he is now. He continues to bust his ass day in and day out.

He is inspires me. Period.

I first heard about him when John, or was it Muata (you’re next by the way Mu!), interviewed him on their weight loss blogs. This guy pushes me to be better. We follow each other on Twitter and Facebook and pump each other up every now and then, but the other day I told him I have a secret challenge with him. He embraced it. So this is my official calling out of Tony.

Tony Posnanski, if you are reading this. BRING IT ON brother! I dare you.
I don’t know what the details should be about our challenge, but I do know that I want to challenge you. Being that you have already lost all your weight and I have yet to lose all mine, a weight loss challenge may not workout. Let’s discuss this and see what we come up with.


As a reward I was thinking that the loser has to drive out to the winners hood and workout with them.

I’m going to be calling out more weight loss bloggers in the future. I may not single out some folks in some posts, but I will be tackling the lack of consistency I see in a lot of weight loss blogs. Maybe a lot of the people behind the blogs have already lost weight, thus abandoning their blogs or maybe they just fell off their wagon and can’t find their way back on. I dunno, but either way I’m calling out the weight loss blogging world!

Who’s with me?

    I love all you guys focus. I was never into this “blog” thing, but I see how it keeps you on your toes and makes you accountable to everyone who’s following. I hope to get myself together soon and lose the weight too.

    Man, your motivation is amazing! Respect for getting yourself and other people into losing the weight and getting healthy again.

    I think one of the things keeping people, especially overweight people, from getting into fitness is the fear of injuries. For that I’ve started a fitness blog myself with an emphasis on injuries. I’m an ex-combat medic who was injured while training in a special forces unit in the military. You might enjoy my blog, TheFitnessAdviser.Com .

    Anyway, good luck on your journey to health and fitness!

    So you want to challenge me, eh? Hey, as Joe, one of my favorite characters on Family Guy, says, “Bring it on!!”.

    LOL! However, I have to warn you that I just got my 60lb weighted vest in the mail . . .

    Just let me know all the rules Is, so count me in!

    • Cool, let’s put a plan together and see what we can come up with because as Tony, you have already lost a large percentage of your weight so we need to think outside the box for a challenge.

  7. Sounds like fun and it’s motivation to read about the success of others. It keeps me going that is for sure.

    Israel…is this a boys only competition? Or can the ladies join in too? πŸ™‚ Competition is what got me to lose the first 65 lbs, and I think a lack of it is what is keeping me from losing the rest.

    Hmmmm…I think I just got an idea for my next post! πŸ™‚

  11. I just saw the challenge at Tony’s blog and I’m glad you called him out and encouraged him to do it. I like his challenge and it should be fun to see the pics of all the people that take it on. πŸ™‚
