Why do I love this Biggest Loser Challenge?
"My doctor took me off ALL my medication. He said I don't need them anymore!"
"I'm no longer a diabetic."
"I haven't weighed this little since High School!" (in tears)
These are just a few of the comments I listened to tonight. YOU all do this! Biggest Loser doesn't do it. YOU do. We give you a place to come in and step on a scale. We offer some accountability. We try to steer you in a healthy direction, but YOU DO THE WORK. And boy did you do it again during this challenge!
YOU lost over 1800 lbs as a group in 12 weeks!
YOU made a huge impact on your health!
50 of you lost more than a pound a week average!
35 of you lost more than 15 pounds!
27 of you lost 20lbs or more! (and I'm counting the couple of you that came in at 19.8lbs. You know who you are and you ROCKED it!)
18 of you lost more than 25 pounds!
14 of you lost more and 30 pounds!
8 of you lost more than 40 pounds!
