The Results!!!

So, I know I am ridiculously late in posting a blog about this, but what can I say? School and ministry have pretty much overtaken me and having free time is a rarity in my life. That being said, let us have the results!

Mark and I weighed in on April 20 for the last time. And the results were…

Chris = 288 lbs – Total loss of 22 lbs

Mark = 324 – Total loss of 9 lbs

So what now? For all our wonderful sponsors, now is the time to send in your checks. Make checks payable to “Chris Conley” in the memo line right either “Sponsor Chris” or “Sponsor Mark” and send them to Chris Conley 926 Cherokee Road, Portsmouth, VA 23701. If you have any questions, please email me at Once I get all the checks in I will be writing and mailing separate checks for both the Rapha House and To Write Love On Her Arms. If you do not remember how much you agreed to sponsor for or if there is some other problem, please please please drop me an email. Once we get all the checks in I will make a report about how much money we raised for our respective causes.

Thank you guys so much for the support. It has been awesome receiving encouragement and have good talks with many of you through this process. I intend to keep going and will likely start another sponsor-type weight loss thing. I still have plenty to lose, haha.

Thanks so much guy and God Bless!!!

Day 104: Chris

Weigh in will be taking place next week, just for those curious. I know we have been slack. It has been a hectic last couple of months for me though, but I think I am back to some sort of normal schedule.

Thanks guys!

Day 88: Chris

We will be doing our next weigh in on the first Monday of February. We haven't forgotten about you guys, it just been a really hectic last couple of months between holidays and travel. I can't speak for Mark, but I can tell you that I am still kicking and working hard.

On another note, check this article out.

Essentially, a 5 foot tall, 275 pound woman is unable to get an MRI from the hospital because of her size. She won't fit in the machine. Apparently the doctors recommend to her that she visit the local zoo and try to use on of their MRI machines. She is embarrassed and her husband is outraged and it paints the doctors to look like just terrible people.

I understand that overweight people are sensitive about their weight and size (believe me, ha) but is this really something to get mad about? Unless that doctors communicated this idea to her in a really insensitive and brash way, she should be thankful that they were at least trying to find a solution since they were unable to treat her with their equipment.

People are so easily offended! What do you think about this?

Day 76: Chris

Hey guys, I know it has been a while since either of us have checked in. Just wanted to let you know we are still here and still working on it. I have been on vacation and am getting ready to go away again for a ministry retreat. Once things settle we will get a weigh in up for ya and get things back to normal.

Thanks so much for the support!
