Snowmageddon derailed our weight loss efforts. Our 96 Biggest Losers only lost a combined total of 7 pounds during Week 4 when they were snowed in at home. They started off with a 146 pound weight loss during Week 1 and that dropped to 133 pounds Week 2, and 92 pounds in Week 3. I am expecting to see a weight loss of about 100 pounds a week, so this is disappointing.
The snow also forced us to reschedule our first Team Challenge twice. It's now set for tomorrow at noon. Hopefully that will help to re-energize everyone.
We also arranged to have Amy Barnes come speak to our staff on March 10th. Amy lost 340 pounds. She is now a motivational speaker and health and wellness consultant. She was featured on the cover of October’s Oxygen Magazine, NBC Today Show , Fox News, Fox and Friends, EXTRA!, and she was just in New York filming Dr. Oz. I'm confident that she'll inspire everyone. I just wish she was coming sooner.
