Has The Biggest Loser TV show inspired you to lose weight?

Asked by 2late2be (2278 points ) January 28th, 2009 from iPhone

We follow the program since we found it, and we love it! My husband and I got inspired, he lost 40 pounds, I lost only 20 then I got pregnant, but I’m planning on getting back with the exercise and diet as soon as I can when my baby girl is born, how about you?

I’ve never watched it. But my workplace is holding a “biggest loser” contest – participants put money into a kitty and the one who loses the largest percentage of body weight gets the pot. It’s at $600 currently.

Yup! I joined a contest at a local gym in December. It is a 3 month deal. Whoever loses the most (percentage) weight wins a trip. I have 12 people on my team. I have lost 15.5 pounds in six weeks and am in the best shape I have been in since – maybe forever! The trainer kicks our butts two times a week and even though I get scared when I get to the gym, after the hour workout I feel so awesome! My goal is 30 lb. total. I won’t win the trip, but that’s okay.

Yes! Some girlfriends and I started a Biggest Loser-style competition to prepare for our annual summer vacation.
I know the contestants on the show are given trainers, don’t have jobs, work out constantly, etc… but I gotta believe if they can lose 100 pounds over the course of the show, I can lose 15 by summer!

No, my beer belly does that for me!

Just as an update and to toot my own horn here – I lost 30 lb. in 12 weeks. The final weigh-in was Saturday and I was so SOOO happy to see that on the scale.

I feel so great and am going to continue to maybe lose 15 or 20 more. I am eating so much more healthy and read every label now.

So, yeah, it definitely inspired me and I had to go buy a new pair of jeans – down two sizes from 12 weeks ago. Haven’t worn that size for almost 15 years.
