The Biggest Loser
Talbot had a special "big" guest speaker today in Myles Murray and Christine Oliveira's healthy living classes. Jay Kruger, a contestant from the hit TV show "The Biggest Loser" spoke with students about his experience with the show, being on TV and losing over 100 pounds. He talked about goal setting, exercise and healthy food choices. He and his brother lost over 200 pounds together on the show and went from couch potatoes to ultra runners. Students spent time listening to his stories and experiences and then broke into an informal discussion time, asking questions about his time on the show and how it changed his life.
