Well, this is the start of the challenge! Today is the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday). I have high hopes, but anything related to exercising is easier said than done.

I’m beginning with the game that got me started on RPGs in the first place – the old 8 bit Final Fantasy I. I’ve beaten this game several times and still really enjoy it. It will be a good way to ease into the challenge, I hope.

My party is composed of 3 fighters and 1 white mage. I named one of the characters after myself; the other three are named after people in my life who have been very successful with weight loss and exercise (my fiancee, my mother, and my good friend Jacob).

Friday:
…Starting Weight: 220.8
…Time : 1.00 hrs
…TPKs : 0

Description:
Defeated the pirates of Pravoka. Walked back and forth fighting monsters, got enough gold for a Silver Sword. (Note – I also did approximately 30 minutes of the game on the treadmill on Thursday. I haven’t included it here because I didn’t weigh myself).


Saturday:
…Starting Weight: 220.2
…Time : 2.00 hrs
…TPKs : 0

Description:
Continued fighting random encounters. Got enough gold for 3 silver swords, white mage has alll possible spells for magic levels 1-3. Hit level nine – will attempt the Marsh Cave tomorrow. No character has even been KOed yet.


Sunday:
…Starting Weight: 221.6
…Time : 2.00 hrs
…TPKs : 0

Description:
Hit level 10 before going to the marsh cave. Beat wizards very easily. Beat Astos easily – the white mage went first and cast MUTE on him successfully. Got 99 heal potions, 99 pure potions, and all of the white mage spells for level 5. Discovered the unlimited spawning of Images in Astos’s castle, so I farmed that area for a while. They give a lot of gold! Forgot to weigh myself before eating breakfast, so the weight is probably slightly inflated.


Monday:
…Starting Weight: 221.6
…Time : 1.75 hrs
…TPKs : 0

Description:
Continued farming Images in Astos’s castle until the fighters starting making 3 attacks per round. Sailed to the town with the circle of sages and bought silver-based armor for everyone. Purchased all 4th level spells for white mage. Sailed to Earth town, killed vampire easily, and got the ROD from Sarda the sage. My weight is still almost a full pound above where I started after only four days – this is slightly discouraging.


Tuesday:
…Starting Weight: 220.0
…Time : 1.75 hrs
…TPKs : 0

Description:
Defeated Lich very easily. Got the canoe and sailed to the Castle of Ordeals. Got Zeus Gauntlets and Heal staff. The white mage is finally a contributing member of the party! Tackled the Ice Cave at Level 17. One character was turned to stone in one combat. Two characters were killed by RUB in another. I ran from both, so experience for all party members is still the same. More importantly, no TPKs yet! I got the FLOATER and the Airship, flew around the world once, and called it a day.


Wednesday:
…Starting Weight: 220.2
…Time : 0.5 hrs
…TPKs : 0

Description:
Only did 30 minutes today because we had friends over this evening. Ate too much food. Purchased ProRings for everyone, got the class upgrade from Bahamut, purchase the fairy and released her in Gaia. Finally, did some leveling at the hall of giants in the Earth Cave.


Thursday:
…Starting Weight: 218.8
…Time : 0.75 hrs
…TPKs : 0

Description:
Did farming in the Hall of Giants, purchased all possible 6th level spells, and defeated Kary easily.
