This is a discussion on Jaime Staples and his latest challenge within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; Jaime apologized for falling off the wagon during his latest challenge and also said the bet is about more than money at this point.

Hopefully he can keep up getting proper exercise and diet, I can understand how it would be easy to put on pounds when sitting at the virtual tables for half the day and not eating so well.
I really enjoy the content and videos Jamie provides, he is a great player and I enjoy watching his stream from time to time.
Best of luck to him in his current challenge.
Jaime has done amazing with the weight loss, that's for sure. What concerns me (and likely a few others) with this latest challenge, he doesn't feel good. I believe he is trying to reach a goal in a much shorter period of time that just does not fit his lifestyle, overall general fitness level and mental state. Taking it all off is definitely one thing but keeping it off with personal health in mind, is an entirely different animal.
