A few additional notes…

Results are based on the percentage of weight that you lose.  So, if you take your change in weight and divide it by your starting weight that is how your percentage is calculated.  click here for a chart of WEIGHT LOSS PERCENTAGES

Would you like a little journal to help you keep track of your progress?  Click here to printout the TEAM LIFE Biggest Loser journal: BIGGEST LOSER participant journal

The scale we use doesn’t only measure your weight, but also your Body Mass Index (BMI), %Body Fat, % muscle, Resting Metabolism, Body Age, and Visceral fat.  Click here for more information on these scores.

Do you have any questions or comments?  Please feel free to communicate with the group right here on our blog.

Healthy Movies

We are starting week 8 of our Biggest Loser weight loss challenge and I think it may be time for a movie!

When I find myself straying from my diet and wanting to drive thru McDonalds or grab a bag of chips and a cupcake, I know it is time to get back to what I call my healthy mind play list on Netflix.  I have the following three movies in my list at all times just ready to hit play.  So, what I would like you to do this week is watch one or all of them and report back to us right here on the blog!

  1. Food Inc.
  2. Forks Over Knives
  3. Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead
