Are You Ready to Lose Big? Sign up Today for a Chance to Participate in Biggest Loser: Detroit Edition III
Michigan is the 10th most obese state in the nation and numerous studies have shown a link between obesity and chronic conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Are you one of the many at risk?
With all the facts out there about obesity, if you are ready to make a drastic change in your life and drop those unwanted pounds, the Biggest Loser: Detroit Edition contest may be your ticket to a healthier lifestyle.
The third season of Biggest Loser: Detroit Edition is currently accepting applications through July 27. Based on the national version, the contest will include six metro Detroiters that will participate in activities such as weekly weigh-ins and physical challenges. WDIV-TV will broadcast stories about the contestants.
Finalists work one-on-one with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan* health coaches. Last year, A Healthier Michigan blogger and BCBSM wellness coach, Grace Derocha coached Steve Anderson to victory in the Biggest Loser: Detroit Edition II.
Throwing Your Hat in the Ring
In your application, include a brief summary of why you should be selected. Is it because you want to play with your kids instead of just watching them? Or do you want to lose the weight so that you can fit into that “skinny” pair of jeans hiding in the back of your closet?
The team at Biggset Loser: Detroit Edition III says it’s looking for charismatic, energetic, enthusiastic and dedicated metro Detroiters that are ready to work hard to lose weight and keep it off. This is more than just a diet – it’s a lifestyle change.
If you have a loved one you think would benefit from this program, send them a link to this blog or encourage them to visit the official Biggest Loser: Detroit Edition III entry page to fill out the application. Talking about weight can be a sensitive issue, but showing your concern and care for that person might make them realize that this is the perfect opportunity to make a change.
Small Changes: Big Results
Over the past two years, the twelve individuals who competed in the contest lost a combined total of nearly 500 pounds.
It’s so easy to get in a rut of eating poorly and not exercising. But for me, I’ve found that it’s a lot easier to get fit when you have someone by your side, pushing you to do your best. And of course, a little friendly competition doesn’t hurt either.
