Biggest Loser Season Premier.....

Wednesday, September 12, 2007

Okay....Call me a cry baby......10 minutes into the show tears were streaming down my face and I probably cried about 2 or 3 more times in the almost 2 hours that followed

*-* Historical Events *-*

#1 - The 62 year old man was the first to get across the dessert and on top of that lost 31 lbs in one week.....Amazining
#2 - When the red team walked back across the desert to get Amber
#3- Kae lost 20 lbs in one week and she was the smallest contestant.....

This confirms a few things for me

**You are never to old for a new beginning and all things are possible**

Have a wonderful day.

    I didn't cry, but not because I wasn't feeling the show. I think I am always in such awe when I see the results they get. It is so amazing to me. I guess it is true you only get out what you put into it, and obviously they were putting it down that week for sure!!! So inspirational!!!

    I love that show. I was crying too girl. Especially when the older guy lost 30 lbs the first week. I can't even seem to loose that in 6 mths. Great motivation though...I was watching it and on my bike at the same time.

    It still amazes me how they lose so much weight. I watch it last night and such a motivator. I wish I can lose that much in one week I would reached my goal. Anything is possible.

The Hourglass..............

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

To all those Sparkies out there who have been BLESSED WITH CURVES.....I found this article very encouraging. Now I understand why people always thought I weighed alot less than I do.


As an Hourglass, you will notice that you tend to put on weight or mass in both your upper and lower bodies while staying more slender through the waist. This applies whether you are a female or male. Generally, Hourglasses are trying to lose weight, mass or inches from both their upper and lower bodies. Hourglass clients typically want to slim, tone and streamline their legs and the back of their arms (triceps). A lot of Hourglass women incorrectly label themselves Spoons. They either focus excessively on the size of their hips or thighs or are bottom-heavy Hourglasses. In other words, they bulk in both their upper and lower bodies, but do faster on the lower half. Hourglasses have to be especially careful with the type and amount of resistance exercise they perform with their lower and upper bodies.

One advantage of being an Hourglass is that you tend to lose and gain weight and mass evenly. Though it goes on fast, you can lose it quickly, too. Hourglasses can and should carry more scale weight than any other body type because your weight is distributed pretty evenly throughout your entire body. That's why a gal who is 5'6", large framed and well toned can look slender even at 150 pounds. Believe it or not, she'll look only about 135 if she exercises appropriately for an Hourglass. This is a classic case of someone who needs to lose inches rather than weight, a feat that cannot be achieved by dieting alone. In fact, losing inches, especially off your problem areas, can only be accomplished through proper exercise. So if you are a large-framed person, don't despair. True, you'll never be willowy, but you can be slender and fit and wear a size 8 with room to spare. As I tell many men and women who fall into this category, don't worry about your weight. The scale doesn't show inch loss, so you could be losing significant mass while the scale shows no improvement.
