WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
The program really made me realize how little fruits and veggies I eat on a regular basis. I thought I was a healthy eater and was greatly surprised at my actual consumption. The counting of fruit and veggie servings was an eye opener.
The support and advice that we had each week motivated me to stay on track. During the challenge I reached my 10% weight loss (18 pounds). It was great that others started to notice the change in my personal appearance as well as my self esteem. One of my friends described me as a new glowing person.
This challenge coincided with my quitting smoking and it helped me to lose some weight instead of gaining.
My teammates and I all lost weight and were motivated to walk and exercise every day.
I appreciated the camaraderie with the other participants and watching the Leaderboard

I took it seriously. From January 1 to the end of April I lost approximately 25 lbs. I have had some issues the last few weeks but I am still within 5 pounds of my goal of 199. This is the closest I have been in several years to be under 200. I have really enjoyed. Doing the challenge.

It forces accountability and makes you consciously aware of making sure you hit your fitness and nutrition goals.
The information available to us was incredible. I know what to expect now and that will help to sell this next time.
I have been able to resist many desserts and treats that have come my way. I also have been more mindful of working out. And I plan to continue with my plans to get in shape. Many of my coworkers have made comments on my progress.

I liked the Nutrition page. Once I determined the fat/carb/protein/calorie goal for my weight, the calculations were very helpful.
Over the past several years I have been moving away from what was a life time of a very active life. As I have been maturing I have dropped off many of my activities. This opportunity got me motivated to get back to a level that is comfortable for my age (64) and the time I have available to me in a very busy professional and personal life.

I am down 26 pounds since January and most it during the Challenge. I am exercising again and feeling much better and I have more energy.I am learning to pay attention to how foods make me feel and what works best for my body. Thank you for getting me moving.
I lost a total of 11.2 pounds for the 8 weeks, not as much as I had hoped. But I do feel better and I noticed that my watch doesn't pinch my arm any more.
I was losing my motivation to stay active during the winter months and this challenge helped me to keep my fitness up so I'll be ready to go big this summer.
I din't have much strength or endurance when I started. I could hardly do 1/2 mile on the elliptical or my strength exercises was a huge struggle. Now I can do 7 miles on the elliptical and follow with 45 mins of exercises with Kathy Smith and arms with Denis Austin :-)
I lost 18 pounds during this challenge and feel better than I have in a long time. I have more energy and drive. Now I can look forward to my first grandbaby in a few weeks...
Even though I did not reach my weight goal I made it half way, but this challenge has motivated me to continue my long term goal of fifty pounds by July. I had health obstacles during my challenge , taking medications that made me retain fluids. I have ended that medication so I am looking forward to see if the weight starts coming off again.
I am happy to say that I lost 26 pounds and I feel great! And by losing the weight I feel very proud of myself and my family and friends are proud of me too.
Our company takes walks at lunch. Having a team in the challenge encouraged a few others to join the lunch time walk.
I lost 25 lbs during the challenge, eliminated sugar and junk foods, and have been getting more exercise. I am glad that I still am able to log food and fitness using the BL app as it was key to me sticking with it. I plan on continuing to pursue additional weight log and better health! Thank you Biggest Loser!!
I liked the accountability of the challenge. I was able to set small goals for myself each day and work to achieve them throughout the challenge.
After being in a funk for several months, this challenge did help me break that cycle and get back on track with my healthy habits. I ended up losing 8lbs over the period of the challenge.
My total weight loss was 9 pounds, but the overall inches lost were just incredible!! I lost a total of 14 inches!! WOW!! Oh Happy Day! THANK YOU BIGGEST LOSER FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY!!
I only lost 2 lbs, but my eyes are open to a healthier lifestyle
Pants that had become too tight now fit!
One of our team members did an awesome job and I'm very proud of her
I have dieted most of my life, and had been in a rut for sometime. This was a challenge that helped to motivate me and find new direction to proper eating and exercise. I was able to lose inches and lbs and hopefully have found a new way to continue with my weight loss with this program.
The journal was very important. Dolvett's exercise videos , looked easy (not)! They were great, quick workouts!
I started eating healthier and exercising again in November 2015. When it was time for the Biggest Loser Challenge I had come to the point where I was getting bored with my routine. This challenge helped me to continue to lose weight and stay motivated. To date I have lost 65 pounds and I am only 20 away from my goal weight. I am training for my first half marathon in 6 weeks. The Biggest Loser Challenge definitely helped me stay motivated.
My success story is that I continue to take the stairs with much eaze and am able to do my treadmill with the highest incline, I am eating more vegetable and fruits and continue even on the weekends.
The daily and weekly goals kept me accountable and on my toes.
The best feeling is that I fit in booth at a restaurant. And I lost 15 lb. Cutting out soda completely and portion sizes.
