Congratulations to Team Pipeline2Paradise, who are the winners of the SHAKA Challenge with a total weight loss percentage of 7.53 % vs. Team Island Sports Media’s 6.28 %.
Team Pipeline2Paradise started the challenge with a total weight of 1281 lbs with a total weight loss of 96.5 lbs. Team Island Sports Media started with a total combined weight of 1473 lbs with a combined weight loss of 92.5 lbs.
This past 6 weeks flew by really fast and proves to me that a few weeks of proper nutrition and exercise can go a long way. I only dropped 16.5 pounds but I lost inches on my waist and also dropped from a 3XL t-shirt to a XL t-shirt. Read more

I started this challenge on February 15, 2008, weighing in at 269 lbs with my no-so high tech bathroom scale. During the week, I ate mostly salads or whole wheat sandwiches for one or two meals a day. But, had two parties this week for friends moving so I just couldn’t pass up or be rude. So, I decided to eat. On Friday’s party, I ate grilled Salmon, teri-beef, and spam with cabbage. I ate little rice with my 4 pieces of salmon.
Then on Sunday, I decided to weigh myself since it was a little or one week since I started this. Well this scale of mine was kind of off. My first weigh in was 259 lbs. I couldn’t believe it so I tried again and again…it went like this: 259, 269, 255, 259. So, I guess my unofficial weight is 260lbs, the average of the 4 weigh inns….LOL. It cracks me up but at least, I know I’m losing weight. Since, the scale wouldn’t have ever registered in the 250 lbs before the Shaka Challenge.
After that, my friend was leaving for Texas so we had coffee and some cheese cake. I couldn’t be rude so I ate my share of two or maybe three pieces. I guess that’s plus 5 pounds for the cheesecake……so it’s 255 lbs now????
Until next time…Aloha and a Big SHAKA to you all.

February 20, 2008 - Okay, here’s an update on my progress. Well, I’m taking it a little slower than I should. When I’m working, I normally eat salads or a whole wheat bread Turkey Sandwich with mustard. But, when I’m at home…there’s once a week that I eat whatever I what. But for the most part, I’m trying to cut down my portions of rice. I used to eat (4) cups rice a day. That’s measured uncooked. So, you guys know how much rice that is.
Growing up in the islands, I was raised eating rice three times a day. I was always the clean up guy at the dinner table. For me, being a little heavy is nothing new. Hopefully, that will change soon…Until next time, SHAKA braddahs.

I started my weigh loss challenge officially or maybe unofficially, the beginning of January. I joined in on a weigh loss challenge at my work. But….like most of you island transplants on the mainland know, that it’s hard to go on a diet when you visit Hawai’i.
Well for me, this was the case. I was going to Hawai’i for the Pro Bowl during the first week in February. I know know….but I miss all that local food. I miss going to Zippy’s and the Coco puffs from Liliha Bakery. So, now that my visit to Hawai’i is out of the way. I’m ready for my challenge. I’m still involved with my weigh loss challenge at work but I also decided to join braddah Pu’ukani of Pipeline2Paradise Radio and the rest of the crew for the SHAKA Challenge (Staying Healty and Keeping Alive).
I officially weighed in for the SHAKA Challenge on February 15 at 269lbs.
