I attended the organizational meeting for my gym's "Biggest Loser Competition" last night. Organized along the same lines as the show on NBC. The competition formally begins on Monday. Exciting, but a little scary. I've never done a formal weight loss competition before (I guess if I wasn't overweight, that would not be an issue anyway!), so there's the fear that I won't do well, etc.
Then again, I am hoping my 9 months of SP will be a help in being able to hit the ground running! I've been exercising more consistently, eating better, and I suspect for some of my competition, that is not the case.
One of the big benefits is working closely throughout the 8 weeks with a personal trainer and a certified nutritionist. I am hoping that any changes to my program will be tweaks.
I'm sure I'll have more to say next week when the competition begins. As my trainer told me, this weekend is a chance to let my body rest up for 8 weeks of intensity.
