So I’m plus-sized girl who’s struggled to lose weight and maintain weight loss (I’ve been yo-yoing for about 10 years now). My work has a gym, and is offering a Biggest Loser 2010 Contest for 12 weeks and it starts Feb 10. This would be perfect, giving me a three month challenge and it ends around the time I’m going to order my dress! The only downer is the fact that we have to have teams of two. I don’t have someone else to do it with. My Fiance could definitely use the workout, but he refuses to set foot in a gym. Should I try and join and see if they can team me with someone else?

Definitely! I’m sure there’s someone at your work feeling just like you are and needs a partner. That sounds like a lot of fun!

Do it! It will be great to have someone to be accountable to, even if it isn’t someone that you normally spend a lot of time with.

Totally! I would be all over this if it were me. There are probably other people without partners that you can be paired up with so don’t let that deter you. How fun!

Do it! I’m sure there must be someone else who needs a partner, and it could be a great way to make a new friend AND help you get in shape! I think it really helps to have someone to help encourage you and hold you accountable.

Yup! I’m sure there is someone else who needs a buddy!

Thanks for the encouragement! I just called, and it’s $10 and I can sign up now and find a partner later. Wish me luck!

That sounds really great and sometimes it’s easier to stay accountable to a stranger than someone you know!

Kudos for signing up! We just did a biggest loser contest where I worked and it was really succesful. I have to be honest I was NOT into the idea at first. I didnt want everyone I worked with knowing my business and watching what I ate but having a partner and trying to win made me very accountable and really productive in my weight loss goals. I am going to do it again before my big day! I cant wait to hear how your challenge goes. Good Luck
