The Biggest Loser's Dolvett Quince Blogs Week 6

Dolvett Quince

Week 6 was themed "I can't lose weight on my own."  How many of you have used that excuse?  Well the contestants put that to rest and proved just the opposite! 

The Black Team's (BT) Cassandra had to deal with the elimination of her grandmother and my beloved Red Team's (RT) member, Nancy. Unfortunately, she and the others were interrupted by a disagreement between Adrian and Mark. The tension continued to mount amongst Adrian and his teammates. After a brief discussion, he and Mark didn't seem to resolve anything.

The Biggest Loser's Dolvett Quince Blogs Week 5

The start of Week 5 meant the return of the Aqua Team for what could be their inaugural weigh-in. Daphne lost 26 pounds and Adrian 34 pounds for a total of 10 extra pounds above what was required to regain entry on campus. I guess rock, paper, scissors is the rite of passage amongst pairs electing their trainers. Daphne chose the Black Team (BT) and Adrian was added to my Red Team (RT). They each received immunity for that week and were safe from elimination as long as they didn't gain weight (although, their weight loss would still count towards their team totals).

The Biggest Loser's Dolvett Quince Blogs Week 4

Week 4 on the ranch started with Buddy leaving to be with his wife as she was due to deliver any day. My Red Team (RT) was told he would return for weigh-in and his weight was still going to count.  

Numerous people say they don't work out because they don't have a gym which is one of the most common excuses used in fitness. So, to prove how poor of an excuse this is the contestants were given a challenge where the losing team would be without a gym for the entire week!  The challenge was an obstacle course they maneuvered through by answering various nutrition questions. The questions included typical diet misconceptions such as, "What food builds the most muscle: chicken or fish?" The answer is fish!  Another good one was, "Which contains the most antioxidants: pinto beans or blackberries?" with the answer being pinto beans! The RT won the challenge and gained access to the gym for the week.

The Biggest Loser's Dolvett Quince Blogs Week 3

Week 3 introduced the first temptation and face-off challenge of the season! Contestants entered a room set up as a Chinese buffet and were told to consume as many calories possible for a prize. Face-off week meant that each player competed against another player on the opposing team to lose the most weight (based on body fat percentage.)  The winner of each weigh-in wins one point for their team so the team with the most points wins and subsequently sends the losing team to elimination round. The winner of the temptation challenge, however, gets to decide who faces off against whom and also gained a 2-pound advantage for themselves or for someone else!

The Biggest Loser's Dolvett Quince Blogs Week 2

Week two was rough but necessary!  Contestants learned the person with the highest percentage of weight loss from the winning team could give immunity to one person on the losing team.  There was definitely excitement about that incentive because players were eager to save their former partners. 

Kim and Kimmy from the Red Team along with Joe and Emily from Black Team volunteered themselves for an unknown task.  Alison revealed a high risk poker challenge involving a 5 lb advantage as the prize.  Kim and Kimmy bet an astounding 3.8 % (94 lbs)!  The other team folded and therefore put all the pressure on my Red Team.  Their teammates weren't too happy with their team leaders' chancy bet and when they told me I was shocked as well.  Kim and Kimmy...love you ladies but you should stay away from casinos. Lol.

The Biggest Loser's Dolvett Quince Blogs Week 1

Dolvett Quince

Hello again ladies and gents...I"m back!  I trust everyone enjoyed the holidays and maintained a well balanced diet and fitness regimen?  If not, I hope this first episode of The Biggest Loser (TBL) Season 13 helped to motivate and get you on track!  

This time teams of partners were to compete. Couples, brothers and sisters, parent and child, and even strangers paired up to ultimately become healthy and win the grand prize. Since we all know that excuses are notorious and prevalent in the health and fitness industry this season was labeled "No Excuses." Coincidently this happens to be a phrase I have always used and is also the name of my first workout DVD. I want you to embrace this saying and make it a part of your day-to-day life.

The Biggest Loser's Dolvett Quince Blogs Finale

Winner John Rhode, Dolvett Quince

I concluded my first season on The Biggest Loser!! What an experience this has all been for me.

When I started on the ranch I was so excited and anxious to meet everyone and begin changing lives one rep at a time. However, I had no idea how much of an effect the contestants would have on me.

Meeting the contestants during Week 1 on campus is still fresh in my mind. Seeing all their faces, their emotions, and hearing their stories stuck with me throughout my time with them. I connected with many of them and built solid, lasting friendships too!

The Biggest Loser's Dolvett Quince Blogs Episode 12

Jessica Limperet, Dolvett Quince

Week 12 had the final four returning home! It was exciting to see everyone reuniting with all of their family, friends, students, coworkers, etc and I'm sure it must have been a surreal experience for the contestants to be back after their drastic weight loss.

While home, the contestants received a DVD with comments from their trainers, but more importantly, a message from themselves prior to starting at campus. It was quite the reality check for the final four as you could witness their genuine shock, anger, and disappointment. They have come so far that it was difficult for them to remember and watch where they once started. Vinny confronted his past by speaking with his mother about the childhood abuse he experienced from his stepfather. It was very wise and healthy of him to open that dialogue with her. Now he can slowly lift that wall between their relationship and his future goals.

The Biggest Loser's Dolvett Quince Blogs Episode 11

Dolvett Quince

Week 11 marked the final week on campus for the contestants and trainers! My first season on campus takes my breath away, my journey is a story all to itself, but we won't go there as of yet. Instead I'd love to take this opportunity to talk about each and every contestant on the show: The struggles of Antone, dealing with being a former athlete, and trying to find that guy again. The doubts overcome by Patrick and Courtney trying to find their inner strength while gaining outer strength. John, tackling food addiction and inner demons. Vinny facing his childhood, Bonnie making it 9 weeks, and how about Ramon, being diagnosed with diabetes and beating that, and each and every competitor wanting and fighting to be the Biggest Loser, while at the same time fighting to save their lives. This show helps people rediscover the person they have lost, and in some ways the person they have always wanted to be. I couldn't be more honored than to be a part of each of their transformations, as they have transformed me.

The Biggest Loser's Dolvett Quince Blogs Episode 10

Dolvett Quince

It was Thanksgiving at the ranch for Week 10.  That means we gave tough workouts and the contestants were very thankful for them!  Well...more or less.  As you all know, holidays are notorious for laziness and complacency. People play the "as soon as" game. The rules are really easy: you eat all the unhealthy meals, snacks, beverages, etc that one can consume and tell yourself it's just for the holiday season and you will eat clean and workout hard AS SOON AS the holidays pass. Sound familiar? I hope after watching this episode you will think twice and continue to make better choices during the holidays. Your body doesn't take a break from functioning so why would you?
