The Weight Debate--Final Tally




Everybody's got a hungry heart
Everybody's got a hungry heart
Lay down your money and you play your part
Everybody's got a hungry heart

(Bruce Springsteen)

About six weeks ago,
Minyans of the world united in a spiritual retreat to see their feet. The rules were simple--we wanted to see who could lose the largest percentage weight and the losers (or those who weren't losers) would donate $100 to the Ruby Peck Foundation for Children's Education.

Today was the weigh-in and the results are listed below. Of course, the one person that I had a $1000 side bet with edged me by 29 basis point. That's tough to swallow (no pun intended) but I'll happily cut the check. It is, after all, for the kids.
