Biggest Loser Moment

There aren't many shows I'm addicted to. But The Biggest Loser is one of them. Love. It. I schedule my time so I will be sure to be watching from the elliptical at the gym while the contestants are working out at the ranch. It is so motivating, even if Jillian isn't there screaming in my ear.

Last season, I had a favorite team. The Pink Team.... how fitting. I rooted on Sherry and Ashley Johnson every step of the way. Remember them? Mother and daughter? Knoxville, TN? Let me refresh your memory.



A few weeks ago, I was privileged to hear and meet Sherry Johnson in person when she came to speak at an event at our church. She was incredible--a solid woman of God who talked about how she drew on her faith throughout the show. I mean, when Jillian is yelling in your face, you better have something solid to draw from, right?

Sherry was genuine, honest, and completely unashamed to talk about Jesus and His role in her life. She was so refreshing, and I was so starry eyed. I was not leaving there without a picture... even a bad one. Here is a shot of me, Sherry, and my sweet friend, Kate.

Does that woman not look A-MAZ-ING!? I believe she went from 218 pounds to 135. Isn't it insane when you do something you never thought possible? That's what she did. And from that, she is reaching and blessing life after life after life. If we hand over what we have with all our heart, God. Can. Do. Anything.
