Bottom Line: This is an inspirational show.
If you don’t get motivated by seeing the transformations that happen on this show, there’s something wrong with you.
This season, it’s family couples.
Trainer Bob got 4 married couples, and trainer Jillian got 4 parent-child couples.
After one week, here are the ASTOUNDING results:
|Team||Couple Type||Pounds Lost||Combined Body Fat % Lost|
Did you see those numbers??? Did you see how many pounds the contestants lost in ONE WEEK?!?!? The least amount was 9 pounds, and the most, 28 pounds!!
I think this just goes to show how fast a person can change when they put some REAL effort in. Obviously these people take several months off from their jobs, and leave their families so they can do nothing but work with trainers and watch what they eat. SURE, that’s not reasonable for the average person, but it is important to realize that sometimes (especially for people this overweight) a big change in ones lifestyle is what’s necessary to achieve a goal.
I believe that when your health is concerned, a few sacrifices are worth it!
My point is just that IT IS POSSIBLE. There’s no need to lie to yourself and make excuses. Bob and Julian aren’t going to listen to old wives’ tales about thyroid problems. They’re going to kick your ass around the gym, and you’re going to lose weight.
Rebecca, over at her blog Balanced Health and Nutrition has an interesting idea by coming up with a workout you can do while watching The Biggest Loser! I think that it is a perfect idea because the best way to motivate yourself is to watch others make phenomenal positive changes.
Speaking of motivation, let’s check out some before and after pics of past seasons:
