Akash Jayaprakash had been looking for the motivation to lose weight and get fit when an Internet forum he belonged to, SomethingAwful.com, suggested a way.

"I thought, 'What would really turn my stomach?' Something I really disagree with," he says. "My bet is to lose 10 pounds within two months, and also run a 5k in October. If not, I have to donate $250 to Romney."
Jayaprakash is a registered Democrat who follows politics closely and says he has long been unhappy with the Romney campaign. He is also a Mormon who doesn't like when people assume he'll support Romney.
