I think you should try to make the competition about keeping to healthy habits rather than have it revolve around the scale. The Biggest Loser is a fun show, but it is a manufactured situation, not how the majority of people develop lifelong habits. Ninety-seven percent of people who start traditional diets are fatter two years later, even if they initially lose weight. I would hate to see you go down the road so many women of my generation did (I'm 58). I dieted my way from 145 to nearly 200 lbs. and wish I'd never gone on the first one. Commit to moderate eating, real meals, learning to tolerate moderate hunger, good amounts of freggies, no bingeing, and consistent movement. These habits will serve you well through all the stages of your life. Then find other things in life to put your energy into! It will make for a more rewarding life.
