Today was the most exciting day. We spent a few hours at Gurnee Mills Mall here in the Chicago suburbs because I had heard about The Biggest Loser Show and MSN's Million Pound Match Up
and their tour. A town close to us was the first on the tour. How cool!
It was a whirlwind day really. We met Kae, Amy and Marty, contestants from The Biggest Loser Show. They were so easy to talk to and lots of fun. We took pictures (see below) and the staff there also took a picture which we should get back in 24-72 hours. A great experience to be able to talk to Kae, Amy and Marty. I was also given The Biggest Loser Fitness Program Book
, the new Biggest Loser workout, Power Sculpt
, magnets and even water bottles.
THEN if that wasn't enough, we had the staff come up to us and ask for a possible TV interview which of course we were happy to do. WOW They are not sure if we will be chosen as one of the interviews but we didn't see too many other interviews the few hours we were there. I was a bit nervous but I think we did just fine. Keep an eye out for us on TV, Kevin and Angie Newton.
And lastly, we both had a weigh in with a personal trainer, our pictures taken for the Million Pound Match Up contest we have entered (you can see our entry page here
) and then we met with a wonderful nutritionist who gave us some great tips on a variety of things. She was able to tell us what weight we should be reaching for, calorie goals, etc.
We can't stop talking about what a fun day we had. I'm so thankful they came to the Chicago area.
