Biggest Loser Final

Wow!  What a competition!  And most importantly, significant healthy fitness lifestyle changes!  For those of you who have been following my Biggest Loser Teams, I have the results for you.  Although it remained incredibly close from week to week, in the end "Booty Busters" prevailed.

I've included slides with the important statistics from the awards presentation we had today.  I've also included the video that was shown.  As you can see, there were some highly motivated individuals who made some remarkable changes.

It was a very emotional event as the winning team, individual team winners and the overall winner were announced.  Tears and cheers were shared by all in attendance.  Since it is not listed in the charts that follow, I have to give kudos to the winner.  As with the rest of the participants, he has asked not to be named, but I can tell you this.  He lost 29.2 pounds, 7.7% body fat and 5.5 inches from his waist!  Talk about dedication!

It was a blast working with both teams.  As I reinforced to them today, although the competition was a vehicle to create excitement and camaraderie, the real goal was for each to improve his/her own health and fitness.  And this they did.  Everyone of them made improvements.  Each one of them is truly a winner!

Biggest Loser Progress Report Week 9

One week to go, and both teams are still incredibly close!  Unfortunately this week saw a couple of competitors from both teams out with illness or business trips, so I was not able to do new body composition readings on everyone.  Incredibly, the combined weight loss for both teams is now at 211.9 pounds!  Competitors - pick up the pace as you approach the finish line!  Who will be the biggest loser?

Biggest Loser Progress Report Week 8

With only two more weeks remaining in the contest, both teams are still incredibly close.  The combined weight lost by both teams now totals 188.4 pounds.  And take a look at the inches lost from their's now at a combined 37.25!

Each team had two of their contestants unavailable for measurements this week, so I had to use their most recent measurements in calculating the averages.  For that reason I also hate to pinpoint either taking the lead...but as you can see by the numbers either team can win.  Keep up the great work and continue to lose!
