Well, it’s crazy to think the biggest loser has come to an end already. It has been extremely motivational to participate in this challenge. I have had the opportunity to meet so many people and learn so many new things. I have developed friendships, gotten to know the trainers, the owner, and made lasting connections; all the while working towards my goal of becoming healthier.
I also want to give a special shout out to Barbara Crawford; an amazing Life Coach. I am so grateful that HP acknowledges that a weight loss isn’t always about eating right and exercising but it is a mental challenge as well. Barbara really helped me overcome the psychological barriers I had with the changes that I had with recently gaining so much weight.
She also coached me and fellow biggest loser contestants through a “jean Challenge”, also led by Trainer, Julie Cary. This was especially helpful for me since I had gained so much of my weight in the lower half of my body. I did not have a single pair of jeans (even the stretch ones) that fit me after I had my baby (sadly even the maternity jeans I had did not fit my hips). This Jean challenge was an added bonus and fun and friendly competition to go along with the Biggest Loser workouts. Now two pairs on jeans fit and I am continuing to work on fitting into my old jeans so I don’t have to buy new ones.
I wanted to share my results in the Biggest Loser Challenge. I am normally more embarrassed to share my body fat and measurements but if I can help motivate someone, it is worth it to me. Although I still have not met all of my goals, I have continued motivation to keep going.
