Try Fitbook for Food Journaling

One of the first things I figured out when I got home from the Biggest Loser ranch is that it all happened so fast it was hard to remember it all. Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels had done so many awesome workouts with us, but amidst the sweat, tears and pain I had forgotten exactly how they went.

I also realized that journaling my food intake on the ranch was always the sure way to predict my weight loss for the week. I searched high and low for something that could help me in this area and what I found was short of amazing… the Fitbook! It’s a goal setting, journaling, reminder, planner and motivator all in one. It tracks your workouts and your food. It helps you set daily, weekly, and long term goals. It helps you when you are having those blah weeks to look back to your killer weeks. It is a great tool and I think it has helped me so much that it might you as well!

Shay Sorrells and Daniel Wright – Biggest Loser Elimination Interview

shay daniel weighLast night seemed like the worst possible scenario for a Biggest Loser elimination. Daniel Wright was sent home for losing the lowest percentage of weight for the week; Shay Sorrells fellow below the yellow line and was eliminated by her fellow contestants. Last season, he was the heaviest contestant to ever be on the show, and this season Shay took over that title. As the two heaviest contestants in history, Shay and Daniel formed the orange team and literally worked their butts off each week to lose on the scale, and to push and motivate one another.

Now, Shay tells us that no matter how many times she fell below, you’re still never prepared to leave the ranch. And Daniel explains in leaving the ranch for the second time he’s now more focused on the emotional barriers in front of him.

They were the likeliest team of two this season. When Daniel asked Shay to join him in forming the orange team, it was instantly a perfect match. Only a few months before was Daniel in Shay’s shoes, even though her 476 pound initial weight was only about 20 pounds more than Daniel’s season 7 initial weight of 454. (more…)
