I was just flipping channels and happened across the Bravo channel … which is running a marathon of Biggest Loser season two today! I only watched a few minutes, but it was strange – I hadn’t seen that season since I originally watched it … back then I was wishing it could be me, having no idea that only a few months later I would be winging my way out to the ranch for my turn! It was fun seeing Dr. Jeff, Matt, Seth, Mark and others who inspired me to finally get healthy. In particular, Dr. Jeff’s story was the one that finally pushed me over the edge to apply for the show – his desire to lose weight for his patients really resonated with my desire to lose weight for the teens I work with as a youth pastor.
I am kinda looking forward to the season two finale – I might turn back to Bravo for that. While we were working out at home, the producers had sent all of the 36 at home contestants a copy of the season two finale for inspiration. I literally watched it a couple times a week for the first couple months, and then every couple weeks until the finale. Seeing their transformations and the excitement on their faces as they weighed in at their finale kept me motivated to push through to my finale! Anyway, I had loaned my copy to someone around the time of my finale and they managed to lose it so I haven’t seen it since … might be fun to rewatch something that was so inspiring to me during my transformation!
