Last weekend I entered a competition through Tork’s Blog to win a 3 month membership with The Biggest Loser Club.  I told myself that if I won, this would be it, it was time to change.  This isn’t just about losing weight, this is about getting healthy, getting active and feeling better on the inside. read more
