Be the Leader of Your Life
Bring Back the Balance radio show airing on WCHE 1520 AM, and available to stream below, focuses on changing the world, one conversation at a time. Jay Jacobs was a guest on the show discussing his experience losing 181 pounds, and coming in fourth place on NBC’s hit TV show, The Biggest Loser.
Two words Jay used in describing his experience on The Biggest Loser: extensive and grueling.
Each contestant is medically supervised, even before they are on the show. The contestants live in an environment where their only job is to lose weight. Jay describes the difficult journey to really face yourself and be willing to change your entire life.
The show taught him the importance of having a circle of support. The journey to lose weight is long and strenuous; it is very important to be surrounded by people who you can be honest and open with.
Jay admits he has not been perfect, but no one is when they are trying to lose weight. Living well and healthy is a practice. It is important to hang in there, even in the worst of times.
His advice to people is to move as much as possible. He believes sitting is the worst thing you can do. Also, be sure to drink water, water, and more water!
Jay has now dedicated his life to being healthy, and to encouraging others that they can do the same thing. He stresses the importance that if you want to make a change, you have to be the leader in your own life.
