Last night was Biggest Loser night! Yay! According to Men’s Health 5 of the 10 fattest cities in America are located in Texas. Texans like to win, but I think this is one ranking they wouldn’t mind losing. The Biggest Loser contestants spent their week in Texas showing the Texans how it’s done. They ran a 5k with people who had not exercised or even walked 3 miles in years. I shed more than a few tears watching some very unhealthy people draw inspiration from Sam and Koli, from Sunshine and O’Neal, from Ashley, and Daris, and Michael. I try to pick a favorite quote from the show each week, but it was hard to pick a favorite from last night’s show because there were so many. Here are my favorites.
I love the way I feel and want them (the Texans) to know that happiness. ~Sam
It just takes a small step and you will see big results. ~O’Neal
It was hitting those milestones. It was addicting. Set small goals and reach them. ~Michael
You have to want it…can’t no one give it you. ~O’Neal
I am your hope. You are my hope. ~ONeal
The Biggest Loser contestants are role models for people who struggle to live a healthy lifestyle and I soon realized that this is what our community is for each other. As O’Neal said, we are each other’s hope, we show each other the way, we set the bar for each other, we are role models. Imagine that as you go about your daily lives you are role models for many people, some you know, others you do not. Keep up the good work and…
Stand up and finish what you started. ~Sam
P.S. Since I am not quite over being sick yet, I am going to put off my reviews of the kickbox video and Celsius until next week.
