On August 8th, Arnold went to finalize
preparations for his sky-diving event, and he kind of hit a big wrinkle.
It turned out that Arnold was a little heavy for the instructor to take
him up! Because of his C.P. and how his body works, the instructor wasn’t
comfortable with his weight.
You know Arnold, he doesn’t give up easily, so he negotiated with the
instructor for a weight that he would be comfortable with.
Well, Arnold needs to get down to 140 pounds, that is the instructor’s
comfortable weight for Arnold to be.
This means Arnold needs to loose around 65 pounds. The sky-diving
company stops jumping on Thanksgiving weekend, and doesn’t start up
until May next year again. Which means Arnold has a little under 62 days
to get his weight down so he still can jump this year. Arnold decided to
turn this wrinkle in to a positive opportunity to demonstrate the whole
philosophy of the Anything Is Possible Tour, and to show you that he
really believes in what he preaches: Anyone can do anything if they
really want to. And because of Arnold’s entrepreneur spirit, he sees
how he can kill two or three birds with one stone
First, to show people how Arnold is dedicated to this project (Anything
Is Possible Tour). And it is true, you can do anything that you truly
Second, Arnold’s bike needs money. He has put over 16 grands of his
own money. Most of it is borrowed. He needs help. He needs money. The
trike is taking longer than he had expected. In reality Arnold needs to
hire a second guy to help with fabricating. There are so many
one-of-a-kind parts on this bike, and his bike-builder has a full-time
job, and he has his own life to live too. He needs assistance to get the
bike done in a timely manner.
Arnold’s idea is to have a 50/50 draw: It would cost $5 to
enter, and you could win half of what it brought in. Arnold’s goal is
to sky-dive by 10th of September, but this is a real challenge! To win
the draw, people will have to guess the closest to the date and time
right down to the minute of when he steps out of the plane to sky-dive.
By the way, Arnold is saying that he is GOING TO SKY-DIVE!!! It is only
a matter of which day and time!!
Well Arnold is happy to announce that on October 9, 2011 at 12:10 PM,
Arnold went skydiving! In 62 days, Arnold had lost over 65
Pounds. On the day of the jump, Arnold weighed 141.4! They
really did not think that Arnold would never get even haft way.
Although Arnold did not get to the weight of 140, they said that he was
closed enough and took him up on the last jump day. Arnold said
that he had made one mistake in his weight dropped undertaking.
Arnold thought that Thanksgiving was the on October 17, and not on the
10th. Arnold was on target to be under 140 for October 17.
To give you an idea of what Arnold had to do to lose
over 65 pounds, in 62 days. Arnold did not eat any carbohydrates,
no protein, no fruit, no meat at all. All Arnold eat for two
months, was vegetables. All Arnold drank was water and cucumber
juice. Arnold did not want to eat any food that build
muscles. Muscles weigh three times more than fat. Arnold
biked four hours/day, everyday. In 62 days, Arnold biked every
single day. Arnold's last week, Arnold fasted for six days rile
biking for four hours per day. this has been one of hardest thing
that Arnold had done to date. Arnold had no doubts at all.
He knew that he was going to do it. Although almost everybody told
him that he couldn't do it, Arnold knew that he could do it.
Arnold believe that if people who had just believe in themselves more,
more people would accomplish more of their dreams. It really does
not matter what other people think. It only matter what you
think. If you think that you can do it, then you will do it.
It might be the hardest thing that you have done, but you will do
The winner of the 50/50 will be announced in a couple
weeks. There are sheets with names of people all over Edmonton, it
will take some time to gather them all up.
