Bob Harper from the Biggest Loser is a huge inspiration of mine. The way he dedicates his time to help people who are over weight and wish for a change inspires me. Bob is the reason why I got off the couch and moved my body.
In May of 2012 I decided to change myself. I was beautiful but I did not see it that way. I did not like the fact I looked unhealthy. I felt unhealthy. I had a hard time sleeping, medical problems, and was out of shape. I had to change something. My Mom handed me a DVD with Bob Harper on the cover and told me, “Good Luck.”
The entire summer of 2012 Bob was my trainer. Even though he was not there in person I still acted as if he was there. His work outs were challenging but not difficult. The people in the videos seemed just like me. Soon I learned seasons of The Biggest Loser was on Netflix and I had a marathon of all of them. I could not get enough of Bob!
I read his Skinny Rules book and learned a lot of the things I was doing was what he was saying. I felt I was doing the right things. When October of 2012 rolled around I wanted to join a gym and losing over 20 lbs from Bob’s workouts and book really helped me gain that confidence. I never joined a gym before but now I was not scared to go. I now work out five days a week. I go to the gym and a spinning class. My confidence is a a whole time high and I have never felt healthier.
One day I was looking back on this journey so far because a year is coming up soon. I wrote a message in hope my fitblr’s would re blog to get a message out. The post did not get much of a response…
Here is my post on tumblr..
Or so I thought! One day in April 2013 I was contacted all over the place from the people of The Rachael Ray Show. I was given the greatest experience ever to have my message given out to him on her show and to meet him. I want to thank everyone at the Rachael Ray Show for giving me this amazing experience!
