My Biggest Loser Transformation Starts Today!

April 21st, 2008 | No Comments | Posted in Weight Loss In Progress

While I am one of the biggest Biggest Loser fans, I have somehow managed to sit and watch five seasons of the show without ever having much success of my own. I reached my highest weight of 270 lbs a few years ago in 2004. Since that time I’ve managed to shed only about 25 lbs to my current weight of 244 lbs. I am 5’7″ tall and should weigh somewhere between 135-145lbs. So you can see I have over 100 lbs to lose!

Here are my motivations: …Continue Reading My Biggest Loser Transformation Starts Today!
