How they started:

“She’s a 48-year-old powerhouse who has kicked everyone’s ass and sent everyone home? and she’s Pink team, if no one has noticed,” Jillian said, referencing past winners Ali Vincent and Michelle Aguilar, who were Pink team members. She's lost 103 lbs on campus.
Tara, former models (Green)
Starting weight 272
Current weight 169
She's won six consecutive challenges on the show and uring Tara’s time on campus, she’s lost 125 lbs. the most any woman has lost on campus in “Biggest Loser” history.
These two women are so inspiring. They are definitely a force to be reckoned with, and I do hope one of them wins!! I'm a sap when I watch this show, because the raw emotions of the contestants are so real. They came onto the show, obese, with health problems, and both had no self confidence or belief in themselves. They had just given up. Now, they are full of life, fit, healthy, and between the two of them have lost 228 lbs in 17 weeksbetween the two of them!! That's just incredible! True, the campus has a lot to do with the amount of weight loss, but at the same time, it does prove that it IS possible. It's all about life changes and being the best person you can be, knowing you are living and leading a fit and healthy life.
Here's a pic from them on last night's show during "Train the Trainer Day", where they got to put Jillian through the workouts she does to them. Jillian and Bob were sweating like CRAZY! It was a guilty pleasure for the contesants.
Also a pic of them and their other teammate Mike in their "goal" outfits they had bought before the show started. They look absolutely amazing and SO happy!!
They head home for 30 days, and have one last weight in before the finale.
This show just inspires hope. Hope and the possibilites of the human spirit. To see more photos, video, episodes and information, go to http://www.nbc.com/The_Biggest_Loser
Have a great day!!
I saw the show last night too. They are really looking awesome. I want to visit the camp and train and be trained :)ReplyDelete
Cher, I know that this show is bashed on other blogs, but like you, I have watched it since season 1. They let people know that the workouts are not typical for regular folks but at least they learn the food info & how to manage things at home. It is life saving for them & many bring what they learned home to help other family & friends & gone on to coach others as a full time job.ReplyDelete
Like Kristi, would love to have Jillian or Bob beat my butt up in the gym or outside! Not the challenges but I would love them to put me thru one of their gym workouts!!!!
I started doing faster interval training when I saw that these heavier gals could do 15-30 seconds at 10 speed on the treadmill. I thought, if they can do it, so can I & I could! I even get close to a minute at times!
they are in a control environment, which is why they can lose the amount of weight they do in a shorter amount of time, so that's a given. But like you said, it's the tools and the experience they will take home with them, to help them MAINTAIN the weight loss, and educate their friends and family and those they inspire.ReplyDelete
Wow they look amazing. I wish that the people behind The Biggest Looser would do like a resort style thing for people who want to have the controlled environment presented at the campus, without the contest portion of the show!ReplyDelete
This show inspires me to tears. Gosh I love it!! great post girlReplyDelete
