The Biggest Loser is a reality shows of its kind, in a field crowded with scums about weight loss. It is a reminder that nothing comes out of a silver lining unless you work for it. With sheer hard work, determination and commitment, you can achieve your goals, not only in weight loss but the effects trickle into your whole life. From episode to episode, participants have lost weight in large scales, and changed their own perceptions, taking back what they previously lost, and gone a step further by positively influencing others into doing the same. One fact about Biggest Loser is that, it is not easy. We have seen tempers flare, participants wanting to give up, and along the way, temptations getting the best of them, but the strong kept their focus and found their way to the finals. Of all the reality shows taking over our screens, The Biggest Loser has been outstanding, and a must watch.
As much as it’s a competition and prospects of winning a large sum of money may lure the competitors into working hard, the end results are usually beyond monetary measures. It means a step closer to cutting down obesity cases in the country, it means a step forward towards savings on health care costs, and it means families can spend more valuable active time together hence a cohesive society. One participant can influence millions from his/her home town, meaning, if they are ten in total, then the multiple effect results to 10 million lives changed across the nation.
Under the leadership of fitness training gurus, Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper, contestants have been guided through rigorous physical and nutritional training in a manner that gets the best out of them. To be honest, if I were to do the same training by myself, I would easily give up, or hesitate to even attempt some of them. They are wonderful and really professional in their jobs, and cannot be compared to buying a fitness DVD and going through the routines. In fact, my call is to have fitness professionals pick up after them, in guiding their clientele through physical fitness exercises. The host Alison Sweeney, best known as Samantha in NBC’s Days of our Lives, has been outstanding too, since she took over from Caroline Rhea in 2007. She has been an encouragement to the contestants, cheering them after a hard day’s work.
Let’s get up and kick obesity out of our lives. I know I can do it, and so can you. you don’t have to do rigorous exercises as seen on the show, but simple ones such as walking half a mile a day will go a long way to improving your lifestyle. ,more so cheer each other into a life of fitness, for together we can do it. keep watching the biggest loser if you do, if you don’t, try to.
