Look, there is just no point, especially in week 2, of talking about why I'm going to fail or how stupid the bet was. It's just a complete waste of time. I am happy I took the bet and would do it again in a second. I'm motivated, eating healthy, and going to the gym everyday.
Even if I do fail, I find it hard to believe that nothing informative will come from my experience. So I only get to 1.5, or heck, only 1.3. Who knows? It will be interesting to see what the human body can do in a year.
For everyone who says "you are screwed, buy out, take roids" - it's not happening and it's not worth it. I'm doing this because I want to challenge myself and get in the best shape that I can - there is value in that to me.
I do appreciate all of the help. But, instead of thinking about how dumb it is, just think like this: "if it is possible, what should Jared be doing."
