My daughter Kate and I have been watching the TV show "Biggest Loser" this past several months. We were rooting for one particular person for most of the season, and as it turned out, she won the finale...$250,000!! And the best part, she looked absolutely amazing on her last and final weigh-in. We were so inspired by her diligence, and not just her, but so many who had lost so much weight. Kate is starting her break at the end of this week, and we decided that we would have our own biggest loser contest. Her break will last 5 weeks, so our goal is to get the gym 6 out of 7 days a week for the 5 weeks. We will eat according to Dr. Joel Fuhrman's recommendation in his book "Eat to Live". I have actually lost 30+ lbs already, but I would like to tone my muscles and firm up some loose skin.....is that possible? Many of the women who had lost 80 to100 lbs looked really good. I didnt see too much skin sagging from their arms. If anyone knows how to keep that from happening, please let me know. In the meantime, we will begin our biggest loser extravaganza, and let you know how it's going week by week!
