Real Life Biggest Loser Series

On the show The Biggest Loser we see people losing huge amounts of weight through diet and exercise.  Of course, contestants on the show have the ranch, celebrity trainers, a 24 hour gym, chefs, nutritionists, and the TV cameras to keep them on the straight and narrow.  Makes you wonder, is it possible for people who do not have the supports of an extreme TV show to lose 50 or more pounds?  Most real people are muddling through their real lives, trying to figure out how to live their healthiest life amidst the array of challenges and hurdles that real life brings.  Where is Jillian when you need her?!

When I joined Twitter I noticed a lot of people tweeting about their weight loss journey, many of whom have lost a significant amount of weight and some who are in the process of doing so.  I found myself searching these people out, wanting to follow them as a way to get into their “heads” by reading their daily tweets.  I want to know how real people lose weight. People with jobs. Marriage. Kids. Stress.  Life.  I asked a few of these real people if they wouldn’t mind being interviewed about their weight loss journey.  Here are their stories…
