I was so glad to see that The Biggest Loser will be bringing back their three kid ambassadors throughout this season. This week, they featured, Lindsay, a 14 year old. She shared with us how happy and outgoing she is now that she is living a healthy lifestyle. She is also motivating her family to make the necessary lifestyle changes.
It is inspirational and motivating for everyone to see the transformation this girl has gone through. I think what is so great is there is not a focus on weight. The focus is living a healthy lifestyle. The weight just came off naturally as she began to form new habits that included:
She is happy because she can do the things that she wants to do. Her confidence has continued to grow and she experiences how having a healthy fit body feels so wonderful.
When she first came on the show, she was overweight and unable to do some of the activities that she really wanted to. One of them was being a cheerleader.
This is what it is all about. It is helping children thrive and live the lives that they want for themselves. Being able to do the activities that they enjoy. It is not about the weight, it is about the freedom that a healthy body gives you.
What a great live example for all kids.
