Did you catch Biggest Loser tonight?

I hope you are taking to watch The Biggest Loser on Tuesday nights. It is such an inspiration to watch people just like us work toward becoming healthier. Of course, you have to take into account that they are at a ranch that lets them exercise many hours every day, keeps the temptation foods mostly out of sight, and teaches them healthy habits. This week was interesting because they had to participate in an 8 hour per day work week. They had to pack their own lunches to take and then had to fit their exercise in around their workday. On top of that, the 24-hour gym had a closing time...7:30. It was good to watch their decisions to help them account for working and being tired from their day and having to fit in gym time. They did well this week and gave a good example of how to get your workout in and how to eat healthy. On one day Sam forgot his lunch at home and checked out the vending machine...no healthy options there. Luckily, Stephanie remembered seeing a Subway down the street, so he was able to go there for a healthy meal. All good thoughts for those of us living the challenge of weight loss and healthy choices.

How were your decisions this week? It's last chance workout time...get it in before weigh-in time and ...I'll see you at the scale.

  1. It is very motivating to me! John and I both said, if they can work out with more extra weight than we have to carry. If they can work out with bad knees. What is keeping us from working out. SOOOO - John and I are doing water aerobics twice a week at the YMCA in Maryville. You don't have to join, you can just pay for the class. We have been once and love it. There is another man in our class also. So - come one come all!
