Biggest Loser

Last night was the makeover episode on Biggest Loser. I always love this episode because the contestants get dressed up and you are able to fully grasp just how much weight they have all lost. In the end, Laura was eliminated which was for the best since she is dealing with a hip injury. Tara is the lone green team player now and she of course, is still my favorite! Love her green dress and Helen's purple dress. Might have to run to Macy's to see if I can find them in my size!
Check out these before and afters:
Tara - Starting Weight: 294lbs.

Tara Now at 182 lbs.

Helen - Starting Weight: 257 lbs.

Helen Now at 162 lbs.

And just some "food for thought"...

A typical stuffed crust meat pizza has 490 calories, 27 grams of fat, 1,570 mg of sodium. That's per slice. A whole pie can run 4,000 calories.

A typical stuffed burrito with the guacamole, the sour cream and the cheese has more than 1,100 calories, 47 grams of fat, and more than 2,600 mg of sodium.

A typical triple cheeseburger has 1,230 calories, 82 grams of fat, and over 1,500 mg of sodium. And if you add fries, fat in a typical cheeseburger with fries is 110 grams.

Love this show! I wasn't too sad to see Laura go, it was for the best and I think Kristen wanted to be there a little more. Can't wait to see next week!
