We are one-third the way through this challenge. How does everyone feel? Hopefully you’re carrying any small change with you week-to-week, because, as guest challenge Marci Crozier advises this week, they all add up to big lifestyle changes.
As Courtney continues to recover from her skin removal surgery (Get Well Soon, Court!), her Biggest Loser teammate and mom has stepped in to challenge us this week. Do Not Mess with Marci! She is telling us to get six to eight hours of sleep each night, and it’s in the best interest of all of us to listen to Mama Crozier.
Congrats to our week 4 winner: LuvCombatBoots! She’s receiving a cooler stocked with guac and salsa from our sponsor, Wholly Guacamole, and a DietsInReview Tee!

One of the major success stories of The Biggest Loser season 11, Marci Crozier was actually able to reach her goal weight before being eliminated in week 11. Besides her daughter, many on the ranch saw Marci as a motivator and surrogate mom. However, she did not let her compassion for others sidetrack her from reaching her own goals, and attributes this success in part to her earlier life as a collegiate athlete.
At the ranch, one of the most important lessons that Marci says she learned is the importance of motivation. She says that for her, losing weight was about more than just food and exercise, but also about finding a balance between mind, body and faith. Marci says her faith has also been a big part of helping her find the strength to reach her goals.
Season 11 of the Biggest Loser has already generated a lot of buzz, thanks in part to crew members going on strike during the show’s filming. Happily, the disagreements were resolved, and we’re looking forward to the show’s premiere on January 4th at 8:00.
The biggest news of all, Jillian says this is her last season.
Season 11 is the fourth season of The Biggest Loser to feature couples, but like season 10, you can be sure there will be some new surprises. However, the tough-love trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper will still be pushing contestants to their limits, while the lovely Alison Sweeney will host.
The definition of “couples” on The Biggest Loser isn’t limited to those who are romantically involved, as contestants include a mother-daughter team and twin brothers. All of the 22 contestants will compete to lose weight and shape-up, facing down emotional baggage and ridding themselves of unhealthy habits.
