This program encompassed everything that I knew I should be doing (eating healthy and exercising) with so much structure that it allowed me to makes these changes without having a choice. You have to be committed once you get here, but after being here it’s really something that everyone has in them. The change is hard, but simple.
The staff and trainers really make a difference because they’re more than just trainers, there’s a community here, which you really need to help you get through it. I’ve gotten to know the people here a lot; I hear their stories, I related to them, and I feel like I’ve learned more because of that.
Before coming to Biggest Loser Resort Niagara I was smoking ½ pack of cigarettes a day and unable to walk around my house. I would drive my car to class even though I new I would get a parking ticket because I couldn’t walk the distance. It got to the point where I felt like my world was getting smaller, I felt like I was suffocating in my own body. That’s when I new I had to make a change.
The first time I cramped up on a machine, the first time I felt like I was going to be sick I learned my limits, it didn’t kill me, and now I’m stronger. You don’t have to go back to that place, and the Biggest Loser has taught me that. Today I ran 5 miles, I worked out in classes for 6 hours, and after that I did an extra personal training session. I never thought I would consider myself a runner and now I’m running, I even signed up for two upcoming races.I never thought I would be saying these things, and even though this was hard it’s not as hard as being overweight your entire life. People here everyday do things that they never thought they would do, including me. You just have to rub the dirt off, and once you do it feels great. I’ve done it, and I haven’t gone back.
