What To Expect at Biggest Loser Open Casting Call

The Biggest LoserNBC’s The Biggest Loser held an open casting call near my home this weekend.  I decided to check it out and spread the word about thintopia to the Biggest Loser hopefuls.  It was a fun atmosphere and I met some cool people including Filipe Fa and Sione Fa from season 7. Filipe shared what to expect in the interview as well as some tips on how to impress the producers. There were probably 500-600 people in line.

Enjoy the video. If you were there and … Continue Reading

Week 5 – A Balanced Life

Welcome to week 5 of the Thintopia Healthy Living Challenge!  Last week the challenge was to have fun during exercise.  I had a little dance party in my living room and worked up a really good sweat.  Some contestants played basketball and jump rope to music while enjoying new workout equipment.

From the book “48 Days To The Work You Love”, the 7 areas of life we need to have success in are.

  1. Financial
  2. Physical
  3. Social
  4. Family
  5. Personal Development
  6. Spiritual
  7. Career

The challenge this week is to work on a goal in something other than weight loss.  The idea is to find balance.  I suggest creating a morning … Continue Reading

The Self Inception Challenge

< Go To Week 1
Self InceptionThoughts are like seeds. If we give them a place in our mind and feed them they turn into beliefs, beliefs that are secured like a fortress with armed security. Is it possible to uproot those beliefs and plant new beliefs? Sure! Hire Leonardo Di Caprio to go 3 levels into your dreams and give you a new belief! Wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a diet pill that not only suppressed your appetite but also changed the way you look … Continue Reading

10 Tips for a Successful Weight Loss Challenge

Champions League Challenge

Approximately 4 years has passed since the first weight loss competition I participated in.  I won that first competition and dropped about 30 lbs.

Since then I have had some success losing weight through weight loss challenges with family but have not overcome my tendency to put on weight.  With one exception.  Before this last competition I had risen to my previous all time high weight and was determined to lose it.  I read up and learned about how to lose fat and keep it off and my one goal was … Continue Reading
