As you are probably aware, Bill and Paula Coates are this years winners of the Biggest MOOser 2011. It was a very close contest but in the end the married couple pulled through to be crowned the victors.
So I've had a few people email me asking to see before and after pictures of the contestants. Well I have that as well as the results for you now. Check them out:
Abby Smith and Rita Moulton
Rita and Abby were a very supportive team losing almost 18 combined inches, 20 pounds and 4.6% body fat. Abby gained a huge amount of confidence while Rita is off 2/3 of her medication and blood sugar is getting better and better every day. They have changed their lives forever.
Stephanie Bowen and Laurie Fisher
Team Fisher/Bowen probably had the most fun personality of the groups but brought their A Game every day. Together they lost 44 pounds (Laurie losing 26), 7.6% body fat (Laurie losing 4.5%), and 22.75 inches (Stephanie losing the most of all MOOsers with 14.25). Their MOOser journey has concluded but their life journey has just begun.
Andrea Machado and Lynn Brochu
Lynn and Andrea were two others who brought a light side to the group. They were vocal in an encouraging and supportive way. Their no BS attitude was refreshing and brought a dynamic to the group that probably no one else could. Together they lost 46.8 pounds (22 by Andrea, 24 by Lynn),
6.8% Body fat (Andrea lost 5.3%), and 22.25 inches (both losing at least 11). Their numbers show consistency and commitment and that's just what they did and will continue to do. They were this years runners up.
The Biggest MOOsers 2011
Bill and Paula Coates
Bill and Paula were eachother's rocks from the beginning. Bill the vocal one, Paula the 'silent assassin'. Bill started off a man on fire with his effort while Paula took a little more time to feel out what exactly this was all about. However, this was short lived as Paula caught up to Bill quickly and often overtook him, especially on Cardio Days. Together they were an amazing team to watch and emulated the true meaning of partners. Together they lost 78.5 pounds (Bill losing the most of all MOOsers by losing 52.5 in 12 weeks which is a MOOser record, Paula losing 26), 9.4% body fat (Bill losing 6.3% most of all MOOsers), and 19.5 inches (Bill losing 11.75). They are the winners of the competition but more importantly have their lives back and have inspired so many more along the way. Thanks guys for making the most of an opportunity and not only empowering yourselves but empowering so many others.
