It's a big day for Eldy's daughter, Kristi...A big day because over a year ago, Kristi had never run a race. Kristi was never athletic when she was a child. She was overweight most of her life and had become much more so after becoming a mom. Eldy was so concerned about her last year when he saw her that he pushed for her to do something about her weight. As parents, you worry about outliving your kids when something like this is going on. Kristi made a commitment to herself and her family. She decided she needed to do something and she was just going to have to start now.
|Before the show started--Chris and Roy Pickler|
When Roy, 63, began the show, he was 306 pounds and suffered from many physical problems. His wife, Chris, at 5'3", was 240 pounds. By the time they were voted off, Roy had lost 92 pounds and Chris had lost a lot herself.
Sparky has never seen the show, but understands that it truly is a weight loss journey that can change people's lives for the better. Roy and Christ didn't win the show, but they are winners in every other way! They are now running classes to help others get control of their eating habits and change for the better. Kristi considers this show and the Picklers to be some of the motivating factors that got her started on her weight loss journey.
