Do you like this story?
No, this is not a spoiler on what would happen on Tuesday for The Biggest Loser Asia finale. But whatever's gonna happen, I still think Filipino Carlo Miguel is still the biggest loser of them all. No, it is not because we share the same nationality but basing on the physical form and compare his to the rest of the contestants, he has made the biggest change out of all of them.
I still can't get over the fact that he lost 9 kilograms in a week! That's 20 lbs! I was thinking, if he can do that, then I can do that also. Plus the fact that I see the amount of sweat he produces every workout makes me feel inspired to shed off those extra poundages as well. For a person who is obese like me (at 220 lbs or 100 kilos), seeing how contestants like Carlo burn off those excess poundages makes us go jealous, depressed, disappointed, inspired, thinking, motivated and be more conscious.
Fat people like me has only got two choices. It is either to change our lifestyles or continue eating our way to death. I've always justified the fact that I'm still young and has got a normal blood sugar and blood cholesterol. And I'm always lazy to go to the gym and do stuff. I got a treadmill and a stationary bike in my room, they don't get used though.
If people like Carlo Miguel can do it, then I can do too. I'm sick of being big. I'm depressed because I'm big. I hate myself because I'm big. I just don't like being big.
Thanks Carlo (and Kevin, Kristy, Aaron, Dave, etc.) for motivating fat people like me. It takes courage and a lot of motivation to finally stop being the fat person you've always been. Congratulations.
