Jelly Roll is down almost 70 pounds.  And on top of that, he just said he is quote, “planning on losing another 100-something pounds.”  It’s going to be crazy when he debuts his new skinnier self.

Back in January, he was challenged to compete in a race called the “Two Bears 5K” that takes place in May with comedians Bert Kreischer and Tom Segura.  And he took the challenge seriously.

Jelly talked about it in a feature with “People” magazine.  He said, “I’m doing two to three miles a day, four to six days a week.  I’m doing 20-30 minutes in the sauna, and six minutes in the cold plunge every day.  I’m eating healthy right now.”

And Jelly feels awesome about his progress so far.   He said, “If I feel this good down this weight, man . . . I can only imagine what I’m going to feel like by the time I go on tour.  (Jelly’s “Beautifully Broken” tour kicks off in August.)

Regarding his pace for the 5K race next month, he said, “I don’t know if ‘running’ is going to be the word, but I’m definitely going to get the 3.1 miles done . . . probably a brisk power walk.  My goal is to be able to do a 15-minute mile.”
