We love "The Biggest Loser"!





Yes, Chris and I are obsessed with "The Biggest Loser"! We both laugh and cry.....we love watching the transformations (WAY TO GO ALI!!!...this season's winner). The last few weeks I hit a low with my weight gain. Since June we have dealt with a lot....and I tend to eat when I am anxious. I want to be healthy for my sweet girl. So, I am really trying to change my habits. It has been tough but worth it.....it is a daily battle for me. Yesterday, Chris found out that Bob Harper (the trainer on the show) was doing a Q&A and book signing in our city!! YES!!!! It was just what I needed. He was awesome....and so encouraging! He told Chris he looked like he was in a band....and told us we looked like we were going to be very fun parents!! We had a blast. I am going to post the picture of Bob and me on my treadmill for motivation (since I can't afford a trainer)! Be praying for me.

Love you all,
Lindsey

P.S. We think we are in PGN but have not gotten the official word....we will let you know!! :-)

Aww Lindsey--I so wish we lived closer!!! We have sooo much in common...I am addicted to the Biggest Loser too...and am dealing with the same weight issues! Today at work I told myself I would come home and get on the treadmill, instead I headed for Target therapy..which is not going well when you can't spend money...then came home to a big bowl of pasta...with extra cheese!!! I bought some yogurt and carrots Sunday, well they are still in the fridge! I live for my two chocolate cupcakes at work esp after I get bad updates from my agency! Well I need to get to bed...we need to talk soon!!!

Love ya!

You two meet more famous people than anyone!!!! Now girl, you know that "He who is in you is greater than He who is in the world"! You take that enemy by the Horns through the POWER He has given you (its your birth right) and you take that him down. You can do this, because God said you can! However, I think you look great! In Him, through Him! Susie

Natalie said...

Have been reading your blog for a while now and thought I would 'finally' post a comment ~ you and your husband are adorable and I wish you all the joy and happiness in the world with your baby girl! My girlfriend adopted a baby girl from Guatemala and what an EMOTIONAL journey! I pray that she comes home SOON to you!

Ya'll have got that celebrity-meeting thing down!! SO Cool!! We're praying that PGN flies by and that Eliana gets to celebrate her first b-day with her parents!!!

Bill and Melodie said...

Hoping for a quick stay in PGN!

Love you guys!

Jodie said...

O.M.GEEEEE! Just so you know, Bob is my tv show boyfriend. LOL That's so cool that you got to meet them!

Praying you are in PGN & OUT very very soon!!

Amanda said...

Lindsey, I have tried to stay away from The Biggest Loser because I already watch too much tv...but it looks like I might have to check it out next season.

I understand the weight struggle...I have been putting on the weight like nobody's business all because the lack of motivation...but that motivation is coming back quickly as I am feeling worse about my appearance and the way I feel. So, we will walk through this together...I always need support/accountability!!!

Needless to say I am sitting watching for the UPS truck at every turn because I should be getting my detox drinks from Arbonne in the next day or two.

I am praying that Miss Eliana is in PGN and out quickly!!!

Love you!!!

I LOVE BOB and the Biggest Loser as well! He just seems so friendly. I need to get in better shape too! My arms hurt so bad when I got back from my visit trip. I am not used to lugging around a 18 pound baby! I hope you guys are in PGN!

Bobbi said...

Ok, this whole celebrity rubbing in the face thing isn't cute anymore. Who's next? Tom Cruise? GEEZ, jealousy here!!

That is great that you want ot make sure you are healthy. It is a struggle for me too. It is not easy, or fun, but worth it for ourselves and our children.

Yeah on PGN!!!

So glad you got PA before going in.

Praying for a short stay in PGN, w/ no KO's!!!
