Aaron’s numbers are impressive. He started at 261 and, although the scale hovered around 199, his current weight is 200 pounds. Aaron has lost 61 pounds, or 23 percent of his body weight. His BMI is down 21 percent. His transformation number – 44. He’s in first place now.
Matt is next. He went from 310 to 246 for a total loss of 64 pounds. His percentage of weight loss is 21 percent but his body fat loss is only 6 percent, which brings his final number to 27. Aaron stays in the lead. But Matt doesn’t care, he is still happy!
Dave is ready. He started out at 250 pounds and now weighs 179. That’s a total of 71 pounds. His percentage of weight loss is 28 percent. But it is his 25 percent loss of body fat that kicks him into first place with a total of 53. Down goes a disappointed Aaron. Dave’s taken the lead.
Kelly Mac is pumped. She’s lost 72 pounds (the most so far) going from 223 to 151. Her percentage of weight loss is 32 percent, also the highest, but she didn’t do as well on the BMI only pulling 15 percent. She has a final score of 47, not enough to beat Dave.
Andrea moves to the scale. She started at 215 pounds and now weighs 156. That’s a loss of 59 pounds, or 27 percent. She has also reduced her body fat by 21 percent but that’s not enough to surpass Dave. Her transformation number is 48, putting her in second place behind Dave.
Lisa is next. She weighed 236 pounds and has lost 57 pound, down to 179. That gives her 24 percent weight loss but she only has lost 7 percent of her body fat so her total is 31. No money for Lisa.
Finally, audience favorite, Maurice, steps up. He pumps up the crowd as he gets on the scale. Mo started at 436 and is now 365 for a total loss of 71 pounds. But, although his total weight loss is the same as Dave’s, it only reflects a 16% loss of body weight. His BMI has only gone down 8 percent so his transformation number is only 24. This seals the deal for Dave.
Dave is excited and Caroline hugs him as the show draws to a close. And it’s a wrap for The Biggest Loser.
Congratulations to all those who took part in this show, and thanks to NBC for airing it. I enjoyed watching it and really “bonded” with some of the contestants. I know all about dealing with weight problems, lack of motivation, and discouragement. The Biggest Loser inspired me to get up and get moving a little more (I would feel guilty watching the show if I hadn’t exercised beforehand!), and that can’t be a bad thing. Anything that motivates me is worth watching.
Thanks to those of you who took the time to share your stories with me. That was a side-benefit of covering this show. The Biggest Loser’s approach to weight loss and fitness is sensible and ensures that the weight stays off. With all the gimmicks out there, it’s good to see people working hard to reach their goals. That’s the only way to do it successfully.
To Andrea, especially, thank you. You were my inspiration, and I have to say you look the best of any of them. You go!
