When I heard that Bob Harper from the biggest loser would be at the Chicago Healthy Living Challenge at Navy Pier this past weekend, I thought it would be great. My friend Taryn is a big fan of Bob's. I am a huge fan of Biggest Loser and while I am a bigger Jillian fan, I thought it would be really neat to meet Bob.
We decided to get there around 11 because Bob was due to show up at 12. When we got to the expo around 11:15 there were already probably 100 people in line to meet Bob. We decided to just walk around and see Bob from afar.
There were a couple of booths that I found interesting including CARA, VitaMix and a child fitness course which TJ liked. Aside from the few interesting booths, it felt like we were in an infomercial. We could have lost fat and inches in 45 minutes or 3 dress sized in 90 seconds. Ugh - not my cup of tea!
Michael Ventrella, this years Biggest loser, also showed up. This man is inspiring! He lost 260+ lbs and looks great. His mother, Maria was also on the show and she too looks fabulous! They were both really gracious and are truly inspirations.
