Biggest Loser update

Hi Ho my HWHL friends!  I know you guys check here occasionaly to see if anyone has posted anything new (because I do!) so I will update you guys!

First the good news...I have lost 40 lbs so far!  Yay! (insert happy dance here).  They cut 3 people off our team and 3 people move on.  I moved on.  As far as the contest goes...pretty lame!  No team competitions, no team prizes and really, really lame prizes...but, I do have the best trainer and I am getting healthy...that is the best prize right there!

As for Jake, well he can't have sugar or processed foods so I have been cooking a lot more.  Brother's aren't crazy about not having sugar around the house, but it's good for all of us!  That and the liver cleanse I think is helping with the latest weight loss.

It hurts my heart to consider that every event may be the last one I get to spend with Jake.  Hopefully, this week we will find out what is causing him so much pain in his back.


  1. Hooray for your weight loss and healthful living. What a great example you are to all of us!!

    I'm so sorry to hear that Jake is still in pain. I don't have any words to console your hurt heart except that we are all here for you. We're praying for you. We think you're amazingly strong - and that Jake has the best mom in the world!! He's so lucky to have you!! Please keep us posted!!

    Love from Cali,

  2. Rose, YAY for you!!!!!!! That's terrific and especially impressive as you've lost that weight under trying circumstances.

    Your Jake has been such a fighter. I sure hope they can figure out what's causing the pain. I know his pain is causing you pain too. Praying that both of you will have the strength to deal with this huge difficult challenge.

    I hate cancer.

    Thanks for updating us Rose on your success and your son. Thinking and praying for both of you.
