Carter's Bike Trailer Maiden Voyage

Took the little man on a bike ride last night. I bought this bike trailer/jogger stroller a year ago, used it several times as a stroller, but last night was our first ever bike ride with the little stud. on the keystone trail, I asked him, "are you happy, are you ok?" and he kept saying, "YEAH! I see WATER!" (Papio). And yes, that is Nemo along for the ride :)

good times and a good workout!

Recipe Share

I invite everyone to come up with a healthy, easy to make, and delicious recipe and post it as a comment to this posting.
My contribution is: Crockpot Posole Tacos
  • Boneless Lean Pork Rib Meat
  • 1 jar of Mrs. Renfro's Salsa Verde
  • Mi Mama's 4 Low Carb Tortillas
Toss the rib meat and the salsa with about 1/4 cup water, in the crockpot. Let cook for 6 hours. Chop up the rib meat, it will easily fall apart at this point. heat up the tortillas, and EAT!!!
they are low carb, high protein, low fat, and DELICIOUS! A tad spicey, for those who like a little flavor! I'm making them tomorrow, I think!

Week One is in the Books

Congratulation to Art Bull for being this weeks big winner with a 3.8% loss, way to go Art, keep up the good work and feel free to stop down anytime to collect your $5 (hope you have change :-) )

We picked up one more person for the contest, Chris Forsythe is back with us and that makes 18 of us.  We lost 61 pounds as a whole and thats the biggest weekly loss ever in the Adaptive Biggest Loser contest - That equates to 1.49% of our total starting weight of 4099.4.  Stick with it folks, work hard and lets see if we can get 62 next week.  Week one is usually the biggest week and there is a drop off for week two BUT, there doesnt have to be.  Do all you can to to make this week successful and we'll see you at the scales next week...

Keep At It - Bc

Season Two - Week One Weigh In - Just around the corner...


• Hope your week has been going well. Remember we have week one weigh in tomorrow morning. I should be here by 7:45 or so so we can get it done, the earlier the better.

• I’ve updated this email distribution from the first season and we lost several players from last time but gained several this time, welcome to the new folks.

• I am thinking 225 pounds as a group this time wouldn’t be a bad goal. That would be a bit over 13 pounds a person, do you think that’s doable We did 195 last time but had a few who didn’t really contribute much…. WILL YOU BE ONE WHO CONTIRBUTES…?

• I encourage all of you to share your experiences out on the blog and with the group, remember we all share a common goal, lose some weight…

• On a personal note now that the weather is nice I will be riding bicycle outside often and if any of you are at all interested please let me know….

• There’s been discussion of forming a closer support group where we actually meet once or twice a week to talk and discuss where we are at and what’s going on, reply if you’re interested…


Good Luck,

May the FORCE be with you,

Is anyone interested joint workouts

As we all know it is a lot easier to workout with a partner than on your own. Especially, if one of those people will power is like a bowl of jelly (like me). Is anyone interested in starting up a workout with me? I am sweet and cuddly and know all the social graces.

The FINALE - Season ONE - BL Contest

Well the first "Season" is finished and we witnessed some AMAZING results.  The winner for this "season" was Kristy Dicky, she lost almost 17% of her starting weight and you can really tell a big difference, she looks great and really worked hard to get her results.  Please congratulate Kristi on her accomplishments, she deserves it.

Joe Jelinek finished second with almost 14% weight loss, not bad for someone who had to be talked into doing the competition, WAY TO GO JOE...

Michelle Richards finished 3rd by losing almost 11% of her weight, now if you dont know Michelle she's one of our smaller participants and for her to accomplish what she did she did work hard and give a great effort.  Michelle, you did great...

Some FACTS about Season ONE
  • Our top 3 lost an amazing 91.8 LBS...
  • As a group we lost 195 pounds for an average of just about 11 pounds per person.
  • 6 of the group dont even weigh 195 pounds, we essentially lost a person...  :-)
  • Our average percentage of weight loss was 4.87%
  • The largest one week losses were 7.8 pounds once and 6.8 pounds on two different occasions
  • The largest one week percentage loss was 3.05%
Season TWO starts today and we look forward to more "slimming" just in time for speedo season...
