biggest loser

anonymous asked:

I'm certainly not glad that Bob Harper from Biggest Loser had a heart attack, and I hope he makes a full recovery. But I wish this could me some kind of moment like, oh, look, thin people have heart attacks, maybe stop harassing fat people.

When a thin person like Bob Harper has a heart attack, it’s blamed on genetics. When a fat person has a heart attack, it’s blamed on our size – or rather, the eating and activity habits that are wrongly assumed to cause our size

That is fat phobic health science in a nut shell.

I hope this change in his health status means he will no longer be able to earn money by abusing fat people.

Ok so I won greatest loser in my group as I lost another 2lbs this week,oops! I literally just pipped it to the winning slot however the person I beat was a young girl under 18 and she has done so incredibly well that I thought she deserved it more than me,seeing as I’m not meant to be loosing weight so I gave her my flowers and asked the group to give her a round of applause.
What a loser lol


’m reposting because maintenance is a real important part of that first goal and that’s why the “diet” that everyone is trying to get you to buy right now - first of the year - is not going to work. Think long term. Think lifestyle. Do something active everyday and pay attention to portions, sodium, and nutrients in foods. You need nothing more than patience, discipline and your mind. No pills. No diets. With that theory you can notice changes in a few months, but not by the end of the day. Keep a diary (like I consider this - scroll to the bottom and see how I kept myself motivated through this). Together, we can do this thing.

Happy 8 month anniversary to me!! I have lost 79 pounds since August 1, 2014. When I began 8 months ago, at 254 pounds I said my goal range was 175-150 pounds. I love myself, and am so proud of all of my hard work. Happy and grateful! Xoxo

169 today! Last week I was 171, so I lost two pounds this week. I have lost a total of 85 pounds since August 1, 2014. I had spent 10 weeks in the 170’s. Progress not perfection. I am happy and grateful! Xoxo

Hello. My name is Jenn and I am a processed foodaholic and sugar addict.

Hello. My name is Jenn and I am a processed foodaholic and sugar addict. 

I wasn’t always a foodaholic. It’s a combination of life, poor choices and ignorance that made me the way I am today.

This is what I used to look like:


This is what I look like now:

What I’m about to tell you is a BIG deal. No one likes to talk about their weight but I’m going to put it all out there in this blog. 

Right now, My weight is 238 pounds. I’m about 100 more than I was 5 years ago. 

These next few days are the last time you will see me this way. Over the next year, I am going to transform my life and my body…and not through diet and exercise. In order for this to be a permanent thing, I need to make a lifestyle change myself. To me, that means eating a clean, paleo diet. Little to no processed foods and no processed sugar. This also includes getting back to the active lifestyle I used to have. I want to start running again and doing CrossFit on a consistent basis.  I want to start living the life I left 5 years ago when my dad died.
