The Biggest Loser - Couples

My sister and I decided to join The Biggest Loser Couples last week. As a team, we thought we could inspire one another, even though we live over 1,000 miles away from one another. Thank God for Web Cams! We both weighed in last Wednesday morning, after watching the show on Tuesday night. I have Great news to report......
I got on the scale this morning and lost "5.5 lbs" . I heard from my sister this morning and she lost "5.4 lbs". Can you believe how close? I am back to following Weight Watcher's as best as I can. What's funny is, while talking on the web cam a few days ago, we discovered that we both weigh exactly the same! How strange is that? We always thought we were really twins and our mom delivered me 2 years later. It has been so hard living apart for so many years after her getting married, but we are use to it and still talk almost every night via the internet. We even share what bargains we pick up at the Goodwill or Tuesday Morning, "her favorite stores" by holding the items up to the camera....it is so much fun...we laugh...we cry....we are sister's on a mission to get healthier together so we can be around longer to watch our growing family. Thanks Sis for being my partner....Love you!
Our next Sister Trip to Florida, we will be sporting some Hot Bikini's! Well, maybe Hot bathing suits! Great Job Sis!!!! Stay tuned for more of the Biggest Loser Sister Style next Wednesday.

What a treasure.... I have been secretly so joyful lately because my older sis and I have gotten closer. Eventhough we have the same parents, we always seemed so different from one another. Alas, blood is thicker than water and we are sisters none the less! I'm enjoying our newfound closesness. GREAT JOB to you both! It is so awesome to have a partner to keep you inspired :-)

It's commendable to get determined enough to do this. I will have to get up the gumption to lose some very soon.
Thanks for your flattering comment (Glamor Shot? I wish) Steve is just very good with the camera.

congratulations to both of you on the loss!! Even more congrats to you and your sis for keeping up such a strong relationship, that is more work, than dropping weight, I am sure you think the weight is a more difficult battle!! I know I think my weight is the hard battle!! But when family is involved and friendships are maintained that is the most important thing and where to focus energy and you are able to do both, AMAZING!!

Good for you! That is a great goal: to get healthier to be around longer for your families.

Yeah! That is awesome. I love the biggest loser couple addition. I have never watched BL before, and I am hooked now. I find myself in tears every week!

I, too, have jumped back on the Weight Watchers wagon. I lost 37lbs in 2002. I have gained most of that back. I weighed in this morning and I have lost a total of 7.8 now! YEAH!

Good luck this week! Have a great weekend, and I will check back on Wednesday for your next report!
