The Biggest Loser

The premier of "The Biggest Loser" is on tonight. I love this show. Granted, I don't like some of the aspects of it (body weight percent rather than body fat percent, the high school-ish drama, etc.), but I love that it takes every-day people and shows the world that they too can lose weight and get in shape. Inspiring. I think it's awesome that there is such a huge focus on EXERCISE and not just diet. Americans seem to miss that part most of the time. I know I did for, oh, about 6 years.

Tomorrow, Ken and I are going to have our own Biggest Loser challenge. I've packed on close to 10 pounds since the half ironman (and hey, I've happily earned every pound!). Ken looks fabulous as far as I'm concerned, but he could probably stand to slim down a few pounds. Since I haven't sprung for a body-fat scale yet, we are going on body weight percent. Stay tuned for our progress!

If you want to get an accurate idea of your body fat % - Adventist Hospital does the hydrostatic test (dunk tank). It's only $40. Info is on their website under "wellness."

Hey, I just stumbled into your blog and got caught up reading about what a great summer you had! Congrats on your first half-IM! I just did my first this past July. Looks like you are planning on IMAZ next year? Me too! I'll be down there to volunteer and sign up this fall.
