Hi MISSOEACHES3, I watch the biggest loser too and I think that is just a challenge to make them appreciate the weight that they already lost. Plus it makes for an interesting show. I am always amazed at the challenges using their lost body weight.

It wouldn't hurt though if you wanted to pick up a weight equaling how much you lost and carry it around for a while. Might make you appreciate all your hard work.

Naw, it's not necessary. They do that for a game & contest, and to let the contestants know what the weight they've lost feels like to have it all added back on. Carrying 5 to 20 lbs in a backpack when you walk, every once in a while, would be OK because working harder by, carrying more weight, will cause you to expend a few more calories. However, carrying around 50, 80, or 100 lbs that you have lost while you exercise would be a ridiculous, and virtually impossible burden. Also, never wear ankle, or wrist weights when you walk or run. They cause unhealthy strain on your body and could cause you to trip or fall. A backpack, however, is good if you want to carry a little extra weight. But, as I said, it's not really necessary.

O.K., here goes. I watch the biggest Loser show. Usually, some where towards the end of the show, they have the contestants start off by carrying all of the weight they have lost. Of course, they drop those weights off at various points.

My question is this: When I lose 5 pounds, should I get a 5 pound weight to carry around after this loss? Do we burn more calories at the higher weight?

I know this may sound like some dumb questions, but, I am wondering if this will help me burn off more calories. I really don't know, but if someone has the answer I would like to know.

Thanks.

One of my favorite Bible verses: Jeremiah 29:11

2014 Will be a good year,
Full of hope and good cheer.

I CAN do this....... YES I CAN.

Don't EVER give up or give in.

Smiling helps the sadness go away.
