Motivation ran deep for greatest losers


Ada —

“The competition kind of got to me. I got real competitive. We had to answer to that scale every week and compete with the other guys. Now I have to find something else to light a fire under me to keep going because I want to lose another 50. My goal is (to lose a total of) 100 (pounds).”

Asked if she has advice for others trying to lose weight, Williamson said the first few weeks are the hardest. “Just stick to it. If you can make it through those first two or three weeks then you start losing weight, you feel better and you know it’s working.”

Green said those serious about losing weight should find a point of motivation. “Just find something that will light a fire under you and stay with it,” he said.

Green said there are rewards other than the prizes he won for being the greatest male loser. “Just to be able to hear your wife say ‘I can put my arms around you!’” was worth it, he said.
