My dad emailed this to me after reading my earlier post ;)

I was put on modified duty at the fire station so I won't be lifting any heavy patients or putting out any fires until this thing heals up.
Your prayers are super important to me. I really feel like God has something he plans to do through this, although I'm not sure what it is, I just have felt him really close to me lately.
I love you all and thanks so much for reading our blog

With only 2 weeks left to go things have changed dramatically to the rules making the last 2 weeks of this challenge the most grueling.
Right now the weight loss totals are as follows
Team Rob – 16.8 lbs lost
Team Jessi – 6.8 lbs lost
Team Rob needs to lose 2.6 more lbs to hit his goal
Team Jessi needs to lose 8.2 more lbs to hit her goal
We have our actual OFFICIAL weigh-in where a winner(s) can be declared on August the 5th. If there are no winners there will be a 3 week extension until August 18th (The day we leave for Michigan) and the OFFICIAL EXTENSION final weigh-in will be conducted and a winner(s) will be decided.
Wish us luck as we look for our second wind in the last 2 weeks of the 2010 Weight Loss Challenge!

After many many comments about how much easier it is for men to lose weight than women we have decided to make our goals based on a percentage of body weight instead of a flat 15 lbs. When I blog on Thursday about our results I will put the exact amount we still need to lose in order to hit our new goals but I will tell you it’s going to be tough. I believe I will need to lose and additional 7 lbs on top of the 15 I was originally shooting for.
Thanks a lot all you LAN party haters! :)

I have to admit I felt like it was 1988 all over again.

Today's Weight In Result Totals
Jessi - Down 6.6 lbs
Rob - Down 14 lbs
I am almost to the 15 lbs goal but that is when the hardest part of the Weight Loss Challenge comes into play. I have to keep the 15 lbs off for an entire month in order for it to count. And unfortunately I'm really hungry for cake!
The Rules state - "At the conclusion of 2 months both contestants shall weigh-in for the official record. Who ever loses 15 lbs or more at that time is considered a winner. If both contestants have lost 15 or more pounds than they will both be declared winners and awarded prizes accordingly."

I’m not allowed to go into specifics about the incident but our station and members of rescue 9 and rescue 31 did a great job at this accident. If you follow my blog you know that if we get spotted on TV we have to buy donuts. Unfortunately they managed to catch an angle on every single one of us so we are all going to have to pitch in for glazed, sprinkley goodness next day at work.
Here is a picture of the incident scene (Thanks to KMBC news)
And here is the damning evidence against me.
I made it all the way to the end of the incident with my helmet down and they busted me after it was all over handing out water. Sigh ;)
At least I wasn’t one of these guys!

Team Jessi - Down another pound to 6.2 lbs lost
Team Rob - Only down 0.4 lbs this week for a grand total of 9 lbs lost.
Jessi is slowly grinding out the lbs while I sit back with a lead eating everything in site. Typical Tortoise and the Hare scenario.
Don't worry I will rock next weeks results rar!
