Biggest Loser – Week 2 recap

Week #2 saw a few more people reporting; we now have progress numbers from all contestants except 3.  First week leader RF continues his strong play with another jump in his stats.  Dark horse KZ jumped significantly into a strong second place and PJ made her debut posting a large loss.  Good work to everyone involved.  Remember that when making these lifestyle (diet and exercise) changes, many people experience low to nil weight loss in the first two to three weeks and, believe it or not, some people will increase weight initially.  Don’t let the short term changes distract you from your long-term focus.

Good luck ’til the next weigh in.

Biggest Loser – 5 Sept 10

Week one results are in (sort of!) and we have one contestant “weigh” out in front with a 5% loss thus far.  Who knows if this is sustainable!  We now have 15 confirmed entries which equates to a first prize of $975.  Also, we’ve got a progress chart up in the Biggest Loser page so you can track things.  To receive weekly updates, make sure you sign up to this blog or add yourself to the Facebook page.  I’ll update this spreadsheet chart each week as well as the graph.  Good luck and be healthy!

Biggest Loser 2010

OK folks…the Biggest Loser 2010 is here. Last night, we had the 13 participants over for the weigh-in and we have two others interested in joining the contest. We’ll be doing weekly updates in the form of a chart which tracks the percentage weight lost for each contestant. We won’t use names nor will we use weights! The contest runs from now until 12 Dec 10 at which time we will have the final weigh-in to determine the winners (1st, 2nd, 3rd) who will receive cash prizes.  We’re planning to do something charitable as a group but more on that near Christmas.

Obviously every participant will win – getting healthy and feeling better is the ultimate prize. A little healthy competition, however, can help to make those winter workouts a bit more bearable. Some group members are planning group activities while others prefer to ‘go it alone’. Getting healthy, getting fit and feeling good isn’t easy so please feel free to add your supportive comments and cheers to these blog entries as everyone will read them!

Stay tuned for updates!
