The Biggest Loser........

Well.... for those of you who don't know I am a HUGE Biggest Loser fan. I get inspired every time as I watch these people overcome obstacles in their lives that have contributed to them gaining weight. Last season I was incredibly moved by the story of Abby, who lost her husband and two children in a car accident. She gained weight as a cover for her pain, and as the weight came off the light came back into her life. I don't think there was one episode last season that I wasn't crying by the end of.

Last week before the New Year was approaching, I made a goal to myself that I'd like to be at my goal weight by the time my youngest had his first birthday, which is April 12th. Well a couple of days ago I was looking through the paper and saw that one of our local banks was holding their 2nd "Biggest Loser Contest"......And what was so neat about this event.... is that the contest ends on April 12th!!!!! I knew I had to do it. I have about 45-50lbs to lose, and just like the biggest loser show on TV, with hard work, determination, and healthy eating it IS possible. I have my awesome team almost together and we are going to do it!!!!!

Please keep us in your thoughts as we battle temptation, and struggles that are bound to come up in the next 3 months.... :-) Food for a lot of people is something that we use to comfort us.... it's an emotional thing, and something you have to work through.

I am going to have a before picture taken of our team... and I will post it and then of course in 3 months I will post our after... whether we win or not... we are going to try our hardest...... I'm so excited... can't wait to get started!!!


  1. I can feel the pressure already! ;o)

  2. With that beautiful attitude, anything is possible!!! I'm right there with ya...have the same amount for my goal!!! I started today. I can't wait to see your after pic! :) I know you can do it~!!!

  3. I don't know that I'd say I'm a HUGE BL fan, but I certainly do enjoy watching it and trying to glean tips from them! ;)
