I felt an updated post on the weight loss status of Charlie Manuel was in order for a couple reasons.
Reason number one was because I got this nifty little before & after screen grab from SportsNite on CSNPhilly this evening, and b.) I incorrectly reported Charlie’s “after” weight as 215 lbs. yesterday. Apparently, I used the wrong starting weight from his diet — which was said to be 274 lbs. back in May — but it turns out he actually weighed 286. I got this new information courtesy of NBC Philadelphia where Dan Stamm had a 5-part series last week chronicling the offseason of the Phillies skip.
From part three:
Charlie tipped the scales at 286 pounds last winter before going on a Nutrisystem diet and exercise routine.
And part four:
Manuel will arrive at Clearwater for Spring Training weighing in just around 230 pounds — an amazing 56 pounds lighter than he weighed less than a year ago.
So there. I stand corrected and you got a bonus picture out of the deal.
