By Dave Bauer Contest Director Another great turnout to finish out our official second week and an- other good week for weight loss. We only had three people who did not see a loss. It is still a time of dialing in the eating plans and work- ing into exercise programs. Dave Bauer spoke on introduc- ing exercise to your weight loss pro- gram. In his discussion he surprised the listeners when he told them that it is not necessary to exercise in order to lose weight. It is rather a matter of eating fewer calories than your body uses in a day. The key is to determine what that calorie usage is. Since we all have different rates, it is best determined by tracking the calories you eat and comparing that to your weight level over time and adjust your calorie in- take accordingly. He went on to say that exercise does have many benefits to enhanc- ing weight loss and weight manage- ment by burning additional calories, increasing metabolism and building "calorie burning" muscle. "Everyone should do some form of exercise to reduce health risks such as cardiovascular disease, dia- betes, and hypertension." Lois Maudlin, a Lose for Life contestant, spoke about her health struggles and gave an amazing ac- count of how proper nutrition and exercise brought her from a short- term life expectancy marked by a wheelchair and handfuls of medica- tion to a whole new lifestyle! Lois now commutes with a bicycle and is free from pills and outrageous doctor expenses. As part of the introduction to ex- Debbie Stratt0h "Ga's Cooking" 2% ercise, Travis Smith gave a presenta- tion on simple exercises people can start with to improve strength and burn some extra calories. Travis is a personal trainer at Steelhead Fit- ness. Here are some comments from our contestants: Lorelta Savri "1 weighed in yesterday after- noon and I was surprised I lost so much! 9.8 pounds. It was about 4 pounds more than I thought it would be. "Maybe lburn i more ca/ones chasing the boys around than I re- alize. And maybe I was eating a lot more calories be- fore LFL than I re- .... ........ alized. "This week will be much more difficult and I need to prepare myself mentally so I don't get disappointed when the scales don't show my hard work. (On the "Biggest Loser," the second week is really hard.) "My large weight loss makes me want to work even harder and get more precise with my diet. My work- out was really good tonight. I'm Com- mitted to staying on the elliptical until it says I've bumed 1,000 calories." Daniella Simonson '7 am going to have to start wear- ing layers to the gym. I keep losing my clothes. "My first time in kick class, I threw a shoe. It just wouldn't stay tied and I do not .o,.:! recommend doing  front kicks with your laces un- done. "Next was the treadmill. I ran the last half mile with a wedgie be- cause, though my borrowed sweat pants would not stay up, parts of my wardrobe did. Also, there is a reason why they suggest you check your keys. They are something of a hazard when they fly out of your pocket and skid across the floor. "But wait, there's more (or, in my case, less)... Last time, I wore a head- band to class to keep my hair out of my eyes. I wore a tight cloth one so it would stay in place. Between the sweat and the tension in the head- band it went flying off my head, hit the window, bounced off, and landed on the floor behind me. =1 was directly across from the instructor and I would have busted up laughing if I had not already been winded. You see, our class has these great sound effects with the music, It has grunts and impacts and swoosh- es, but I could easily imagine a rico- chet then and impact. "It was like Goofy takes kick class."
