The Biggest Loser

Okay so I typed this post up yesterday (Wednesday, May 25th) and forgot to post it! Oooops. Let's just pretend that I did! 

Last night was the Season 11 finale of the Biggest Loser. I LOVE The Biggest Loser. JP LOVES The Biggest Loser. We never miss an episode and love snuggling on the couch together watching the show.

Each week I watch the show and become more and more inspired by the contestants. I am fortunate enough to have never struggled with body weight and self image. Well, okay, I'm a girl, some days I "think" I'm getting fat and don't want to get in a bathing suit, but the next day I could feel like I am smokin' hot :) I think that just comes with being a female. I do know that so many people in America struggle with maintaining body weight and keeping a positive image of themselves. It's not an easy thing to do. What inspires me most about the contestants is that they are recognizing that they have a problem and DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Seriously, they realize that they are hurting themselves and lowering their life expectancy and actually reaching out for help. It is so hard to ask for help. I know that I often have trouble even just at work asking for help because it shows weakness. The most important thing to remember is that we all have weaknesses and sometimes you just have to feed off of other peoples strengths in order to improve upon those weaknesses. Besides, how can you ever turn a weakness into a strength without asking for help? These contestants realize that they don't know what they're doing and seek advice and support from the trainers who teach them everything they know. This way they can walk away knowing so much more and improve upon a weakness.

Now not only do I love the contestants, I love the trainers as well. I have so much respect for Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels. I think they make a wonderful team and Jillian will be missed on the show. She is a true motivator and as I wrote in my last post, I consider myself a motivator as well. I can't wait for the day that I can share my passion for fitness with others every day. Right now, I have a great job that is opening so many doors for me, but it's not where I want to be forever. I know that God has big plans for me and I hope that one day it involves working in a gym much more :) Back to Jillian. She inspires people and changes lives. Not just physically but mentally. Not just mentally but emotionally. Not just emotionally but all in all helps people to become the better person that they want to be. Not only is Jillian a great trainer, let's face it. She's hot. She has a rockin' bod and I'm a little bit jealous. Only a little bit.

Anyways, back to the finale. Olivia and Hannah are the two sisters that both made it to the final 3...first time ever. The other final 3 contestant was the Biggest Loser while in the house, Irene. Can you say go ladies?! I mean how awesome is it that these three women beat out all the big, strong, tough men. Let's face it, men lose weight easier, it's the truth. This just goes to show all the women out there that don't think that they can tackle the weight loss challenge, that THEY CAN! Here are some before and after pictures of the winner!

Okay that's all I have for today. I hope you enjoyed it. If you ever have any questions about health and fitness or how to start to tackle your weight loss journey, feel free to contact me at any time! I love helping others :)

Until next time...
With love and God Bless,
Amy, JP and Maggie
