The great British beard-off

Sam and Shaun (2 of the 7 Wise Owls - many readers will have been on one of their courses) have decided they want to lose weight.  Whoever doesn't meet their targets by next February will have to shave their beard off:

The beard-off

The beard-off begins: which face will be clean-shaven in the Spring?

The person who loses less weight will also have to get a tattoo done.  This can be anything: the only stipulation is that it must contain the winner's name.

Here are Shaun's current statistics and targets:

What Current Target by end March 2022
Weight 98 kg 72 kg
Body fat 32.2% 22%

Here are Sam's current statistics and targets:

What Current Target by end March 2022
Weight 104 kg 79 kg
Body fat 34% 24%

I'll update this blog from time to time with their progress.

If you're trying to lose a bit of post-lockdown weight, and have a beard (or other valued personal item) that you really don't want to lose, send us details and we'll add your name (and update the progress of your challenge) on this blog.  You don't have to do the tat thing.
