What's Your Excuse?
Biggest Loser Season 13 (TV) contestants have a common bond--excuses
Read the information below and then take a look at the challenge box to the left to see your first Biggest Loser Turlock mini challenge!
There are 20 new contestants arriving at The Biggest Loser Ranch for the newest Biggest Loser on CBS (Tuesdays @ 8pm), and they've all got a gazillion excuses for not losing weight. They don't know how to eat healthy; they don't have time to eat healthy; they don't have time to work out; they're intimidated by gyms (the ranch will fix that); they're too old, they'll never each their goal...etc.
You know the story. In fact, you've probably got a few of your own. This season we'll take a look at an excuse each week and blow it to smithereens. As trainer Bob Harper has reminded us over and over, weight loss is about "can," not "can't."
In the meantime, we offer some words of encouragement for you to get around your excuse-making mechanism from our beloved Biggest Loser Club experts Greg Hottinger and Michael Scholtz, authors of the recently published Coach Yourself Thin.
Only you can make this happen. Act as if your life depends on meeting your weekly goals. It feels great to be in control!
You can't fail unless you quit. Feeling frustrated? Make sure you are not under-eating, over-exercising, or expecting too much from the scale each week.
With the right mindset, you can overcome any excuse—from injuries to metabolism to medications. Focus on the things that are in your control.
Clearly plan each day ahead and think about WHAT you will eat and WHEN you will eat your meals and snacks.
Give Up Guilt
Nothing's worse than working hard on your program and having a treat followed by guilt. Take responsibility for your choices and don't play the guilt game.
