Shedding for the Wedding: Goodbye Team Gamers

I’m a bit late on posting this, but CW latest show, Shedding for the Wedding, seems to mimic nearly every horror movies. In just the second week of competition the only all black couple was eliminated from the series.  While there’s still an interracial couple ( white woman, black man..) on the show, the team I was rooting for is out.

If you’re not familiar with Shedding For the Wedding it is a reality weight loss show that follows nine overweight couples as they compete against one another for a chance to win their dream wedding. Each week the couples endure vigorous workouts, participate in a team challenge, and try to lose as much weight as possible.

Crash dieting and excessive exercise is great for reality shows like this, but if you want to lose weight and keep it off these tactics are only for the big screen. One of the things that show does do that is great for those who want to lose weight is make the couples keep a food journal.  Keeping a food journal is a great way to count calories and be accountable for everything that you eat.

While I’m sad to see Team Gamers go I hope they hold unto some of the things that they learned on the show. Good luck and congrats on the upcoming nuptial! *Black Love *
