Wow. When I said I thought Heidi Powell would be doing more this season, I had no idea she would be doing THAT much more. What an incredible transformation!!! While the show started with 2 people being “chosen,” only the woman made it to the end. She looked AMAZING at the finale and that was PRE skin removal surgery. She was proof of what determination and follow-thru can add up too (or subtract, as in her weight). As for the guy, he was in it for the wrong reasons and that clearly didn’t work for him. I did think Chris was a bit hard on him when his goal was to lose 130 pounds, and he was 1 pound short. He should have gotten on the scale 3 or 4 more times…that always works for me 🙂 Best line in the show for motivation was when Chris threw out the quote “fall down 7 times, get up 8.” It is that attitude that results in success….for anything.
I also loved this quote that I just read this morning by Robin Roberts:
“Being optimistic is like a muscle that gets stronger with use. Makes it easier when the tough times arrive. You have to change the way you think in order to change the way you feel.”
She surely keeps on getting up! What a great role model she is.
