Biggest Loser Competition

Matt and I have joined the Biggest Loser Competition at our gym. We know the woman who runs the gym and she blessed us with allowing us to join the competition for free! I am not sure, however, that we quite understood what we were in for! There is a diet to follow and weekly workout challenges that we have to complete. Its awesome for accountability! We joined a week late, so we have to do both weeks. Last night, I did two of the three machines for the calorie buster challenge. Today I am feeling awesome blah sore!

Week One Challenges:
  • Go the distance challenge- Do three separate miles and log your time for each mile at the front desk. The only catch - you must use at least two different cardio machines. Example: 2 miles on the bike and one on the treadmill, or 1 mile on the elliptical and 1 on the bike and 1 on the treadmill.
  • Good Start! - Make it to the fitness studio at least 4 times this week.
Week Two Challenges:
  • Calorie Buster - Do 20 minutes on each piece of cardio and log the number of calories you burn on each machine. Log the number of calories on each machine - as you do them at the front desk. You should have three totals at the end of the week. Your best number for the elliptical, your best for the treadmill and your best number on the bike. A little prize goes to the person that burns the most calories overall.
  • No Candy or Soda Pop Challenge - absolutely no candy or soda this week - you are on the honor system!
  • Body Squat Challenge - Have the front desk time you for 60 seconds and see how many body squats you can do in one minute.


  1. We are doing the Biggest Loser at work. There are five of us and we weigh in every Monday morning. We have a prize for the biggest loser each week, and if you don't lose, you have to pay a quarter in the pot. We all put in $20 at the beginning, so the Biggest Loser on June 1 will win $100!!! I'm doing pretty well, so I hope to win the money!
    Carrie is on her way to your house. She left early this morning and will stop somewhere tonight, but she should be there tomorrow. Check out her blog - I know you always do. Have a great weekend with her. Talk to you soon,


  2. Awesome Anne! Good for you and Matt! Glad you all were blessed with an awesome gift! We are also doing Biggest Loser at work. I lost 10lbs the first week! I have now lost a total of 23lbs since the fall. Very excited! Have an awesome week!

  3. Sounds like fun! I think the diet part would be the most challenging part for us so, good luck guys!

  4. I love the Biggest Loser! I really wish a girl would win one of these days! If you're interested I posted about my weight gain/loss recently:
    Hey - good luck with Meant for More! I think its great and I can't wait to read all about it!

  5. I am rooting for you to win the money Elaine! :)

    BROOKE! How are you!?!? Congrats on the weight loss!

    Delci - I hate the diet part. I so enjoy the taste of food so I am really having to change my thinking around.

    Wani - Thanks for the encouragement about Meant For More...we are really excited to see what God does!
