  1. I just enjoyed the fact that you posted that picture and I got to save it in my “Fitness Motivators” Picture Folder. LOL! I’m a mom of 3 girls and that picture is just pretty. πŸ™‚

  2. Hi I’m Kristen. I would love more than anything to be reached by Chris or Heidi. Im a single 25 y/o mother of an 8 y/o. I have strated my weight loss journey after being diagnosed with lupus which in effect has caused many other medical problems. I worked with a trainer for 3 months and loss 30 pounds however since than have struggled to keep it off and put 20lbs back on. I would love to learn how to manage my eating and keeping faith. Lord knows that’s the hardest part. I am currently restricted to hit the gym but even home programs I’m willing to take on to get back on track! I am desperately trying to get back on the right path. Please help. Thanks ?

  3. My sister is over weight, has been for at least 10 years. She just had a baby and lost a bunch of weight while pregnant. I am trying to get her to not sabotage her weight loss by keeping up with an exercise routine. She has a home treadmill…. I keep saying just do 10 min a day. So easy. She has zero motivation. Her baby should be her motivation. I get she was raped and we have major daddy issues but baby grace has to be priority one.

  5. Hi I hope I am not too late to enter. This has been a crazy month for our family. My 9 year old son had two brain tumors removed with two different brain surgeries two days apart at children’s hospital in Phoenix. He has been a trooper all his life dealing with epilepsy, cyclic vomiting syndrome, sever adhd, and now recovering from two brain surgeries. As his mom it’s been a really rough and long road. I try to stay upbeat but it can be hard finding motivation and time for myself after taking care of him and his 3 year old brother. I like to run distance but it’s been hard to do much of anything during this past month. Today i read heidi’s post about we are perfect with our imperfections and it was just what i needed to hear! So thanks for the motivation and i would love to be entered into the mothers day contest to keep that motivation coming! Thanks
    My name is Lara Peterson (sounds like laura)
    and i am the mother of two Fantastic boys!

  6. Greetings Heidi,
    My wife is an awesome mother. I would say she pours her life and heart into her kids in every way possible. Play time, school work, dinners, she is all in, 100%. She is also an amazing model and is trying to educate our kids on how to be healthy and eat healthy. She works out from home every other day, 10-15 minutes. She loves it and the kids follow her when she they are home. She prepares fruits and veggies, fish and tofu, flax, hemp and many other things way beyond me…and the kids love it. What she does may look like it comes easy and naturally but I know that it is not always easy for her. She respects Chris greatly (as do I) and I know she would love to have a personalized message from Chris to encourage her to continue on the path she is on (for our kids and for me). Her name is Myriam (Meer-ri-am). My name is Mark. Hope I am not too late. Thanks!

  7. I would love to hear words of encouragement from Chris. I watch all the episodes to Extreme Weight Loss and Biggest Loser. I struggle with finding things that I can do to lose weight due to health issues. My weight issue became more of a struggle after a near death experience from a surgery about 5 years ago. I also struggle with stress eating. I know that I have to not only lose weight but work on fixing what is broken internally that probably led to the beginning of my weight loss. So any steps to help me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much for letting me tell you brief details of my struggle with weight loss.
    I have submitted this for myself
    My name is Tammie Kee(pronounced key)

  8. Hello,
    I’m a mitig?e of 4 and a full Time teacher! 10 years ago I weighted 250 pounds I’ve modify my eating habits and started to trained 30 min. 3 Times a week! I’ve started to see changes and to feel better ! I now teach twice a week zumba classes, PiYo classes and train in a Crossfit gym! I’ m down to 170 but still having trouble to drop off the extra pounds I have!!! Tonight I hosted a zumba party to help my students Pau there end of year trip in Toronto !! My motto: make your own HAPPINESS !!!

  9. I have been doing the Bod-e challenge for 10 weeks now. I’ve lost 16 pounds:) I just need encouragement to keep going . Anything if the same can get mundane! I love what both of you do for people!!

  10. I have been watching extreme weight loss since it came out. I use it and biggest loser to keep me motivated. To date I’ve lost 115lbs. I have 19 more to go to get to my goal of 170. That’s right I was 304lbs at my heaviest. I would love to hear a personal message from Chris encouraging me as I finish this journey. I feel like I’ve had some big set backs with my husband’s come and my appendix out/colon resection. I’m ready to start back up and finish this!

  11. I am Julie from SC. I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO START LOOSING WEIGHT FOR MOTHER’S DAY. I’m such a good mother I let my weight get out of control from taking care of my 2 little boys and not worrying about myself. I would really like to win this contest. Maybe Chris could show up to SC and give me a push in the right direction. I’m 5 2 and 199 pounds waist 43. SO WITH ALL THAT SAID GOOD LUCK TO ME.

  12. Heidi I posted this yesterday, May 4 at 8:33pm. I forgot to mention that I would love Chris book!I am Marjorie Legare.

    I have a very hard time with Mother?s Day for the simple reason that I was not blessed to be a mother due to my obesity. Life without children can be very lonely at times. Few years ago we rescued a little Chihuahua that became my little hairy son, he filled my life with laughter and hope.This little dog loved me no matter how big I was and he touched my heart forever.He passed away very unexpectly three years ago and I was left with a broken heart! Few months after we lost Diego, my husband rescued a little white furry friend that was alone with out food or water for 23 days and he survived! Kasper came into my life when I was hurting for the loss of my other dog. Everyday Kasper reminds me that life is worth fighting for that we can?t give up!
    If Kasper could talk, I know he would ask me what would I want for Mother?s Day ?..I would tell him.. I would love a book from Chris. I think the world of him for the simple reason that he is willing to help those that have lost hope!
    Kasper gives me hope that perhaps some day in the eternities I will have a chance to be a mom!

  13. Hi ! I would like to enter myself. I’m a young mother of a beautiful 20 months old little boy. I work very hard on being a good mother, a good wife for my wonderful man and I’m also currently a student. I think I deserve this price because I’m always there for everyone around me, and Chris Powell is my idol. I love watching Extreme Weight loss because it makes me realize every time how important it is to eat healthy and exercise. I would be thrilled to have a personal message to encourage me to keep all my hard work up. I train a lot, and I always try to make healthy food for my family. In between that, I try to be the best mom ever for my son. Thank you !!
    Sabrina

  14. Me: pronounced (loo-sin-duh) I want to lose weight but have trouble with making healthy choices when I’m on the go. I have 2 toddlers, a husband and I’m a full time college student. Life is busy. My needs always seem to be pushed aside for everyone else’s. Help me figure out how I can maintain my kids, household, school and my health. I could use some encouragement in staying on track in making sure I do things for myself too.

  15. My name is Nicole and I am writing about my Mother, Victoria. I myself became inspired by your show Extreme Makeover and then joined 2 Dietbets you have hosted!! Today I am writing for the most special person, my Mom. She has been the BEST Mom and Grandmother to all of her Grandkids giving up her own time to work out, so my brother and our families can work and save on the growing cost of health care. This is all while helping my Father recover from a heart attack. (he is in excellent shape, just hereditary)She is planning her 45th wedding anniversary party, after second chances and survival of my Father, next year and she would like to get started to lose 30 lbs and look fabulous. She is in her 60’s and I would Love some guidance and pointers and encouragement for her to start this journey. I would give anything for my Mother as she has been better to me than I could ever repay. I want to help her feel her very Best and look it too!! She is the most selfless and LOVING Mom and BEST friend ever!! Thank you Powell family, you are such an inspiration and we are BLESSED to all be inspired by you!!!

  16. I have lost 80 Lbs in the past two years but have been on a plateau for awhile now. I am not sure what to change up as I would still like to lose another 30-40 Lbs. Its hard to stay focused and motivated when nothing is happening visually you may be eating healthy and doing things smarter than in the past but you also like to keep the scale moving. Seeing normal people that have children and very busy life styles stay healthy and focused is motivation that you don’t have to eat the fast food and make poor choices for you or your family.

  17. For the last comment.

    My wife is: Farah (pronounced like Sarah, but with an F)
    I am: Jason, her husband

  18. MY WIFE GIVES UP HER POWER YOGA SO THAT I CAN CROSSFIT!

    I missed the deadline πŸ™ I was trying to give my wife a break, looking after our newborn and was unable to juggle writing and soothing him to sleep. I am going to try anyways. πŸ™‚

    My wife and I are constantly inspired by your entire family, you are all always so positive and keep us going. We just recently had our first baby, it has been the best 3 months of our lives and also the most stressful 3 months of our lives. As a nurse, my wife Farah is always looking out for others before herself. We live a very active lifestyle, however with the new baby she hasn’t been able to get out for runs, yoga or pilates.

    She constantly sacrifices her time to exercise to allow me to Crossfit, she knows how important it is to me, and always urges me to hang out at the box while she’s looking after the baby. Especially during the Open. I know that she’s doing this out of the kindness of her heart, so i have had guilty wods as of late. We argue (fun arguing) over who should be out exercising, and she usually wins and sends me off to the Crossfit box.

    She is self-concious about her fitness, she is self-concious about her stretch marks. I tell her everyday that her stretch marks are the most beautiful thing in the world, because Oliver created them. (his nickname is Oly, not a coincidence with Oly Lifting.. haha)

    A message from Chris stating that she’s beautiful no matter what, thanking her for allowing me to Crossfit and put up with my paleo(ish) ways, thanking her for motivating me. Telling her that a post-pregnant body is not ugly, but in fact the exact opposite. I love her more now than ever. A vid from Chris would be so awesome!

  19. I love my life, and I love my body. I just wish I had someone in my life like Chris to keep me motivated and keep me going. I have lost 60lbs in the last four months, all of this was done by me. I changed our eating habits, meal plans and my husband is doing his lawncare business. It’s becoming very successful. He says he gets his work it’s from there which I completly understand. It’s hard work. I on the other hand need to take time for myself to workout and get fit. I just wish we could workout together and enjoy getting fit together.

  20. My name is Sarah I am a military wife and mom to two amazing kids ages 4 & 5. While my husband was deployed I was doing amazing and lost 25lbs. I have battled with thyroid issues for the last 4 years including beating thyroid cancer. Recently I have gained weight again from this and trying to stay motivated. Working out anymore hasn’t been about loosing weight but rather staying strong and accepting what I don’t have control of. Hearing from Chris Powell would be amazing!! I truly look up to your family and everything you all do. Pick Me!!

  21. I would like to enter my daughter, TamaraSue Damron, she has llost about 60 pounds and has turned her life around wonderfully. She’s a mother of three boys , I’m so proud of her she’s never had any acknowledgement of her success and it would make me so happy to give her the credit she deserves. Thanks so much, Tamara’s mom Sandra Conn.Love your show and you have a beautiful family!!

  22. I would love to nominate my mother Teresa Riley for this award. She is having a hard time mentally getting back into a healthy lifestyle, She eats poorly and is very sedentary. I have tried to talk to her about it, she just says I am having a hard time mentally getting into it. She had her first heart attach at the age of 44 then 4 years ago had a triple bypass surgery. She has slowly slipped back into the bad ways of eating and needs boost! This message could be the thing to help her. I have started my journey 5 weeks ago and lost 17 pounds already. Please give her a shout out, she really really needs it. Thank you! Stacy Davis

  23. Chris is so inspiring, it would be wonderful to hear from him. At the beginning of this year I weighed myself and saw 300 for the first time, and I told myself that enough is enough. I’ve spent my 20s in the 200s, I turn 30 in September and I refuse to spend my 30s in the 300s. So far this year I’ve lost a bit over 50 pounds by eating cleaner and starting to exercise. Chris’ Boot Camp DVD is one of my favorites. I can hardly walk when I’m done with the beginner program, but it gets easier every time! But I’m getting to a point where things are slowing down, and I don’t want to lose my motivation! I think a message from Chris that I could keep and revisit when I need a boost would be incredible. Chris and Heidi you are the best and thanks for all you do!
    I am: Julli (pronounced like Julie)

  24. Hi! I would love to receive a video from your awesome husband! I am a mom to a 4 year old little boy named Tobin and a 2 year old little girl named Marley. I suffered 3 miscarriages before Tobin was born and I really lost hope that I could be a mom. My kids and my husband are my world. I stay at home with them and I cannot say every day is easy, but my kids make me a better person. After having suffering with severe pregnancy nausea, I had gained 50 lbs after Marley was born, because I felt like eating again! I lost it all to be healthy for me and my family. I love you guys and cannot wait until this season of Extreme Weight Loss!

  25. My name is Dawn. I am a full-time stepmom to 3 teens & mother to a 4 y.o. Every day life is a full-on, go all day long, too much to do/not enough time kind of day. My stepkids are my kids, as I’ve been raising them for over 6 years. This year has been a year of highs & lows, but also a shift in perspective. I have lost 20 lbs since January, gone through many changes–letting go of needing to perfect or control everything & everyone, but also trying to take more time for myself & my health instead of taking care of everyone else & leaving myself behind. I’d love to hear from Chris for added encouragement to keep working hard. I still want to lose 20 more pounds.

  26. My m is an inspiration to me. She has lost 60 lbs this year and looks great. I on the other hand who have had two beautiful children have gained that and am now a 5’8 220 lb woman who wants only to be able to keep up w her kids and hectis life. I work full time, taking nursing courses online but soon will be attending class on campus and I am scared to gain those extra lbs studens tend to gain.please advise me how to blast through 35 lbs and stick w something. I can’t seem to push myself, I don’t sleep enough and I’m too busy. Help

  27. My name is Jessica Taylor and I am a single mom of 3 small children ages 7, 6 and 3. I work full time in between trying to carve out time for me to exercise and lose weight. For years I’ve struggled with my weight and am sorry to say, have deleted many pictures of the kids and I as a result. I’m so uncomfortable in my skin and want nothing more than to get healthy and feel good about myself! I love your show Chris and Heidi and I really look up to the two of you. A personalized motivational video from Chris would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift!!!! Pick me!!!

  28. My name is Connie. My mom has passed away, so Mother’s Day is always a little sad.She was a very strong woman and a great example to me. She worked hard, loved her family and took good care of herself. She taught me to be strong and love life. I have a wonderful husband. I teach 22 kindergarteners. I have three grown sons and seven step daughters.Life is busy. I workout 3 mornings and 3 afternoons a week. I’d like Chris to keep me motivated to keep going. I’ve lost 8 inches do far & 15 lbs. Thanks!

  29. Hi Chris, I would like to enter my mother. She’s 72 rs old and after being overweight most of her adult life she has finally lost weight and looks so great but unfortunately she was also diagnosed in January with Pulminary Fibrosis. Now she just focuses on when she’s going to die. I would love to have you tell her to focus on living each day to the fullest and not worry about when she will die. To enjoy each day that she has. We are actually giving her a surprise birthday party in June so this would be such an amazing gift to her. It breaks my heart to see her focus on how long she has to live instead of living each day as a gift.

  30. Good Morning!
    I would love to have Chris send a video to my mother Teresa Riley. She has a serious health history (several heart attacks and bypass surgery and COPD). I told her about my own progress recently eating better and exercising. Her response was she just couldn’t do it. She mentally can’t get it together to do it. I think she just needs that incentuve. Just a positive message. I would love it too. I am down 10 lbs in 5 weeks byjust eating better. I would greatly appreciate any support for my mother who us really sown right now. She’s a fighter that just needs her fight back! Thanks! Stacy Davis

  31. I am not a real mother, but a school mother…better known as a teacher. I nurture and care for children everyday that are not my own. I am dedicated to my job teaching special education. I work long hours and still try to go to the gym daily. I need the strength to not give up and to choose the right foods.

    On top of teaching, I try to do good for others outside of work everyday. My mind is always moving on how I can help someone else (sound familiar). I recently just raised over $2,600 for a little girl with a brain tumor and her family. Hard work..but worth my time.

    I never give up on “my” kids…why do I always give up on myself? How can I continue to help others if I don’t start putting myself first? I would like to lose 30 more lbs before September and then another 40 after that. I love you guys!!!
    My name is: Rebekah

  32. I’d like to enter myself πŸ™‚ I’m a 30 y/o stay at home mom of five. My husband travels every week for work and we are living overseas, away from all my family and friends. It’s all me, all the time. After having four babies in six years, my youngest being just one month old, I’d like to hear what an awesome job I’m doing! My husband is very good at letting me know, but it’s nice to hear it from others as well. Also, I need encouragement, advice and support in getting back in shape after pregnancy. Oh, and how do I my motivation and will power back?
    Myself, Amanda
    Happy Mother’s Day Heidi! A beautiful mommy who is lucky to have beautiful children and a ‘hunky husband’ πŸ™‚ Chris is equally as lucky to have you!

  33. I am entering myself. I am a 37 year old nurse and super mom. Over the past 15 months I have gone from 252.2 pounds down to 154,6 pounds. I get up and hit the gym 5 days a weeks at 3:30 am so I can get my workouts in and not feel bad about taking time away from my family. I have totally changed my lifestyle, including my diet. I have eliminated processed foods and sugar entirely. I love Chris (and you too Heidi) and I think what he does for others is inspirational. I would love to get a video message from him on Mother’s Day to cheer me on to losing that last 20 pounds that is hanging on.

  34. I would like to enter my gorgeous wife Petra, she has lost 35 kg in the last year after fighting a severe depression and a very bad sugar addiction. She caught on to you Chris and just loves you to pieces, she trains with your videos every day through a bought dvd and you tube. She would love to meet you in person and train with you but thta’s not going to happen since we are in Holland. For this mothers day i would love to give her this suprise from you and tell her how proud i am of her and what she has accomplished and how much i love her. Her name is Petra and my name is Marielle. We love you chris and heidi πŸ™‚

  35. Words from you Chris to my mum: Hey Rose, Ur my number 1 favourite Australian!! I’ve seen you do that workout DVD of mine, and let me say I am impressed!! I hope u keep it up Rose, I know how much u love doing those push-ups, remember the mind controls the machine, eye of the tiger!! Let me say, Bonnie and Jacob think u are the best mum in the world, and Paul thinks u are the best wife, and I have to say I can’t disagree!! U are one impressive lady!!

Anyway all I can say is ur a Legend Rose, and im not the only one that thinks that!!
    My Mum is: Rose

  36. Your husband loves you. Deeply. He says it everyday though sometimes you may not hear. He’s deployed right now and doing his part to make a better life for strangers because it’s his job and his passion. You should know that he can only accomplish his task because of you and the support you give. Do not worry about your wedding ring. It will fit on your finger again soon. I promise. Until then, keep it close to your heart until he returns home. Push through the pain and more importantly, fight through the uncertainty of achieving your goals. You are strong and you are capable. Now is the time to make a change. Your daughter Emi deserves the best you and your husband can give, so it’s time to set the example and take back your life! Your husband is amazed everyday when he sees Emi developing and soaking in the world YOU introduce her to. I want you to know that it’s time for you to be your #1 fan again. Love yourself enough know you’re lost and need to find the way back to your happy self. You deserve to be happy. Your husband loves you unconditionally but desperately wants to see the joyful girl he fell in love with transform into the confident wife/mother you know you can be. Fight hard Trisha and know you’re loved with and without a ring…

  37. I would like chris to tell me that I can get that last ten pounds off, ive lost 44pds but the last ten is hard, that life can be just as healthy at 45 than it is at 20, even now when I look in the mirror I think and call myself fat, I need to know that someday I will not have that mental bondage over me.

  38. Oops- I cut off my ending- sorry πŸ™‚ it was:
    So go outside and play Ryn, move your body, ride your bike, laugh, love yourself, and remember- be brave and shine!

  39. Hi Chris my name is Kari pronounced kar~ee I would love to hear how to get momentum going on getting a workout going after having two kids at 45 πŸ™‚ how to get my mojo back!!! Thankyou Kari(hard workinging mama )

  40. Please say:
    Don’t be afraid to be healthy Ryn, and don’t be afraid to be a Mother! Both are fantastic adventures that you are worthy of! You deserve to be happy and feel beautiful, and you will pass your contagious joy for life onto any child who is lucky enough to have you as a Mom! I know you’re scared, and I know it’s hard work, but just imagine how amazing your life will be when you are out living your great adventures and not just thinking about them. And you can share your healthy lifestyle and all those amazing memories with your own children.
    I am Ryn (it’s short for Kathryn- so kathRYN- I guess sounds like Rin)

  41. My daughter needs all the encouragement she can get. She has had a very tough 9 years & after a very difficult domestic violence relationship, which she had to run away from with her two babies, she then went on to meet someone new, who left her on her own when the new baby was 3 months old. She is a single mum to my 3 grand children, 7, 5 & 3. Whilst she has gone thru so much trauma, she has also had health problems, which the doctor just puts down to aniexty. After all the hurt, she gives her little ones so much love & teaches them to sing & dance and let their hair down. She has joined Diet Bet & has also started a get fit Facebook group, whilst she motivates others I’d love to see her receive something special, just for her πŸ™‚ Thank you so much ? xxx My daughter : Stephanie. I am: Julie

  42. I would like to enter my stepmother Suzi Cotton in Arkansas. We live far apart ( I live in western Canada) and I miss her very much. I would like her to know how much she means to me. I know she would love a message or a book from either of you. She has struggled with her weight all her life and despite emotional or physical road blocks she gets back up and keeps on trying. She has been waiting for neck surgery and she continues to make healthy choices to lose weight. She could use a cheerleader in her corner. Suzi is a high school teacher and always makes sure every kid that is in her life feels loved and special.
    My stepmother is a wonderful person. She is loving, sensitive,and creative. I am proud she is my stepmother!! I thank God this woman came into me and my father’s life 19 years ago when I was 17. Being so far away from her this would be a great Mother’s Day gift to let her now how much I appreciate her and that I am in her corner.
    The email attached is her email. My email if needed is [email protected]

  47. Hello! I would like my mother, Monica Cowan (Cow-ann) to receive a message from Chris. She has introduced a new, healthy lifestyle into her own life and lost 50 pounds! She has a few more pounds to go to reach her personal goal, but she continues to get stronger and stronger every day. I believe she deserves a few encouraging words from Chris to keep her going! She has inspired many others to get healthy and get more exercise. Please pick my mom! She’s the best!

  48. My wife Meleia (Mal-ia… Like President Obamas daughter name) is am awesome mom. She takes care of 12 teenage boys all the while trying to take care of her health. She is a blessing to these boys who don’t have a home and puts their needs ahead of hers.

  49. For my mom: Lorrie , she has over come a huge obstacle in which my dad walked out on her after 35 years of marriage! She had high blood pressure and was beginning to gain weight!! She finally took control and begging hitting the gym everyday and staying positive!! She is the glue that keeps this family together!! Having 5 kids she has molded us to be the best we can be!!

  50. Hi! My name is Kali and I am writing about my amazing sister Kristina who lives in Gilbert, AZ. She has accomplished so much in the last year. She went through a rough pregnancy with preclampsia, gestational diabetes and seizures during her pregnancy. She gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl 10 months ago and has being working so hard as a nurse in AZ and is going back for her masters this year AND has worked hard and lost 30 pounds in the last two months. I couldn’t be more proud of her accomplishments. She is an amazing mother & would LOVE nothing more than a video from Chris!!

  51. My moms name is Cheryl Files. On May 18 she’s graduating from Purdue with a masters in business at the age of 54 (shhh πŸ˜‰ ) Yay for her!! It’s a very exciting time! Growing up she worked hard for me and my 3 siblings. She has always been my rock and someone that I admire the most. I appreciate her more than she probably knows. Both me and her have been on weight loss journey for the last year or so. She got me out walking with her and encouraged me to do more than I thought I could. She got me into a 5k race and even though I struggled a lot to walk itbsjevwas there cheering me on! She’s not seen much success in her journey, and I go down then back up. It’s very discouraging at times and we’re both trying to help each other and push each other. Anything thing from a small tip to an encouraging word I think would be awesomely fantastic. Just to help her a little more and to see the success I know that can be there!!!

    Thank you very much!!! ~~~Amanda Gutierrez

  52. Chris, I am embarking on the journey of mother hood for the first time, but before I do I need to get in check with my health! I could use a motivating video from you so on the days I don’t want to go to the gym I can watch your video and remind myself that what im doing is for my future family. You and Heidi are inspirational..and being a mom is what I believe to be the highest reward a woman could ask to be! To a healthier me….Cheers to you and your family.

  53. Hi, my name is Jill and I nominate me. I am a mother of three beautiful girls and our bonus surprise baby boy- who isn’t much of a baby anymore :). I went through many hospitalization and surgeries with my oldest where I became my heaviest weight. As soon as she was released and we had Bennett hospital free for more than a month I changed things up and lost that weight. I have always been able to until after I had my little man. I love to be active and have fun playin with my kiddos. I could use some words of encouragement- some you can do it’s!! I would also love some ideas on how to keep my motivation with eating. That is my one vice is that I go to food. Just a little advice would be awesome!!
    Thanks!!
    Jill nominating me πŸ˜‰

But after that I got anemia and then started to put on weight due to medicines and parents making me eat more forcefully. But now it’s very very difficult for me to loss.

But I never give up I have started it once again and I’m truly and purely determined to loss weight it’s been more then a month but still can’t see any results that depress me. I don’t know how to keep it going but each time I want to give up I watch your video on YouTube and Start it all over again. I seriously and desperately need your help to save my life and guide me going to achieve my targets. Sometimes I get so frustrated that I even stop eating anything. Need your help and advice plz help me.

  55. Say this:
    Your a wonderful mom Yvonne! You have been with your daughter through every breakup, every bad day, and every shopping trip. You are her rock as she graduates from college and into the real world. Her life would have been different if were not her mom. You are her best friend and her mom and she loves you! Happy Mother’s Day enjoy!

    PS: I got her into Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition!

  56. My daughter Amber is an amazing young woman. She is a survivor of abuse as a child and a 2 year cancer survivor. She has 2 little ones and is a single mom. I would love for her to hear from you. She struggles so bad with her weight and self esteem. She deserves help and deserves to gain some self-confidence. Any words of encouragement would just mean so much

  57. Hello! My name is Emily and I live in Las Vegas, NV. I have always battled with my weight and seeing my 13 year old daughter follow my lead was scary. Your show has always inspired me so I decided to try out for this past season. I wasn’t able to attend a casting call so I decided to do a video. I was not satisfied and embarrassed so i didn’t submit it. After I missed the deadline I was mad at myself and knew I had to take charge. My daughter and I started working with a strength and conditioning coach who has helped me lose 12 pounds ad 6″ in this first month. My daughter too has done amazing! We go 6 days a week and are dedicated to our new lifestyle. This is just the beginning of our transformation and hope to inspire people when we go thru our journey just as you have inspired us.

    Much love and Happy Mothers Day Heidi!! XOXO

    I would want Chris to help me know a good week of foods to eat to loose weight that are also kid friendly! You guys really need to make a cook book that is what I struggle with most not learning to eat good growing up. Now I have about 30 lbs I would like to loose!

  59. My mom’s name is Linda and I am Suzanne. My mom is 67 years old and is a workout queen. She is at the YMCA for two hours a day in classes with those half her age and definitely keeping up (a lot of the time out doing the others). From weight lifting to spinning class she does it all. I’d love for Chris to tell her what an inspiration she is for her family to be healthy and strong no matter what age. Tell her how awesome it is that she goes out biking with friends for 30, 40, 50 miles and loves it. And tell her to keep at it until she can’t go anymore! Just tell her you love to hear stories of older ladies who are strong and inspire others to be strong and fit as well!

  60. To my wife Chaney who has giving birth to our three children in three years she has had a baby each year and work very hard to lose the weight she gain and to stay fit for talking care the children She stay a home who has a workout plan that involes our kids working with her teaching them to eat healthy and for always willing to help people to reach there weight goal after birth and help people to stay fit she always puts other people first so i know she would love this

  61. My wife Rachel Andrew is an awesome mother of three beautiful children. She is also a second grade teacher and is amazing at what she does. Between handling a full time job and being the mother of some crazy kids she is a great woman. She has been trying for years to lose weight but with little to no time she is losing the battle. when she watches Chris it inspires her to get back out there I think this video would push her over the edge!

  62. My name is Cassondra, and what I would like Chris to tell my mom, Vicki Wescott is:

    Congratulations on graduating college at 42 years old with your dual degree, all while raising 4 beautiful children, and being able to manage it all in the process. On top of that, you were on your journey to losing weight as well as opening your own business, Vapor Paradize, with your best friend! Thank you for always being an inspiration to your oldest daughter, Cassondra, as she looks up to you more than you know! After all, if it weren’t for you, she wouldn’t have grown into the humble young woman she is today. You did it on your own as a single mother for so long raising her, words can?t begin to explain the courage that you had! Keep up that motivation and determination on losing weight and being able to coach her along the way on that. You can do it! You ARE doing it! Thank you for cheering her up when times get rough, and always being there for her, miles away. You always end up putting a smile on her face! Thank you for teaching her how to be studious and do great in school. Keep kicking butt and taking names; your children are watching you! You are probably crying your happy tears now, so before I go, I want to say: Happy Mother?s Day, Vicki! *insert your (Chris Powell) smile here*

    My mom is: Vicki
    I am: Cassondra

  63. I want to learn how to be the best parent I can be I adore my 3 daughters so much how do I get my daughters to believe in themselves and have confidence. You seem like a really active parent and I want to be that to for along time I have felt drained physically and emotionally but I kept my promise to myself this year to keep the goal I have made to myself to loose weight so far this year I have come from 339 to 303. My eldest daughters have been eating fruit like it’s candy. Now I just need to connect more on emotional level for way to long I have been a inactive parent. And I am ready to start new and be the parent I know is inside me. My name is Melanie (mel-a-nee

  64. Hi,my name is Jeanette John’s and I am a mother. I am very blessed with a awesome husband and Beautiful daughter who is 16. I am seeking desperate help for my daughter who is 5 feet and weighs 195 pounds. I realize this contest is for mothers however this would be the ultimate gift to me by helping my daughter. My husband and I are so very worried for her, she is often bullied at school because if her weight. We hired her a trainer and that didn’t go very well. We love Hannah so much and worry for her health. As parents we try to encourage however she feels we only nag! I am praying you get this special request! You both are such inspirations! Thank you so much for your time.

  65. Hi my name is Vanesa. It sounds like Vanessa. I’m writing for my mom Mary. My mother has given up on herself. She has told me that she only has a good 10 or 15 years left to live. I don’t want my mom to give up. I need you Chris to give my mom hope again. I know she can do this Chris. She just needs some encouragement and knowledge to get started. I will do my part to help because I will never give up on her. Please Chris help me give my mom hope this Mother’s Day!

  66. Hi I am entering myself. I am 27 years old and I have a wonderful supportive husband and an 18 mo old daughter. I am currently pregnant with our second child due to deliver in 11 weeks. I am currently 297lbs and 5’7 (morbidly obese). I am determined that after I deliver I am going to lose 134 lbs before my husband graduates nursing school in 24 mo. I am a nurse, a mother, and a wife, and I want to be the best at each of those that I can be; and I cant be the best me at this weight.I have began reading the book Choose More, Lose More for LIFE and I am so inspired by the relationship that you share with your husband and the transformations that the two of you inspire and guide. This week will be the first promise to myself! My husband and I are counting down the days to the season premier of Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition for encouragement on our transformation journey. I would love some encouragement from Chris or my own copy of the book!

  67. My mom needs to hear how special she is. She has done everything for everyone else and never asks for anything in returned. She has raised me by herself because my father was abusive to her emotionally and physically. We started our weight loss journey a year ago with our personal trainer Mike Laird. He is amazing and of course turned my mom onto your program. She has hit so many emotional walls over this past year and has been learning to love herself again and fight through her emotional eating habits. She is not where she wants to be, but she needs to keep fighting. She has over 140 pounds yet to lose, but she had lost 65 only to put on 15 of it over this past winter. She has gotten discouraged, gotten back up, and is trying again, only to find herself back emotionally eating when she doesn’t see the loss. Only difference is she at least is choosing healthier foods to eat. Please, my mom would love a message from you. She has read your book, watched your shows and is even done your Dietbets. She has a great support system at the gym and with me, but that is about all. I leave for school in the fall and she will be here by herself and pray she will continue to fight for a healthy life even with the stress of being a teacher, a single mom, and her own demons.

  68. Oops! Forgot to mention my moms name!!! Joan is who I would give this prize to! πŸ™‚

  69. My name is Bailey Jensen and as much as I would love a video from Chris and a copy of the book. I would just love if my mom would get this. She has been a single mother of 2. She is the greatest gift I could have ever asked for. She has shown me strength, courage and beauty in the darkest if her days.She works really hard to give give and give and deserves the world. I just know that if Chris would give a shout out to how great my mom is that would be awesome and if she won the book it could help our whole family.

  70. My mom gives so much of herself to others and little time to herself. She’s trying to loose a few pounds and having a copy of your book would be a great motivator! Thanks for this opportunity!

  71. My wife is Kelly and I am Jay. She got healthy and fit two years prior to our new baby. With some pregnancy complications came a huge weight gain. I think a “get back at it” from Chris would ignite a little inspiration. She’s struggling to get back to the fit she wants to be. The book might work too. She really enjoys Extreme weightloss, and has dabbled with a couple of Heidi’s recipes. Thank you.

  72. My name is Eileena and I would like to nominate my Mother Kimberly because she is the most amazing mom I could have asked for. She has scarficed so many things for me to be able to have a better life. After watching my mother lose aproxmetly 50 pounds she inspired me to start my own journey last year I went from being a unhappy 16 yearly who weighed 300 pounds to a 17 year old that now weighs 220 pounds and is not done losing weight. I would have never been able to change my life with out my AMAZING mothers help. This has been a really hard year for my mother she lost her father and my grandfather I know it would mean the world for my mother to receive a video message from Chris. Thank you ! I am Eileena My Mother is Kimberly

  73. Hi
    My name is Stephanie. I am a soon to be 40 year old and a single mother to Andy age 12 has severe autism. I am also a proud special education to 15 wonderful high school students with high functioning autism. As I read these entries there are so many deserving people of a personalized message. I’ve hit rock bottom with my weight issue at nearly 330lbs I am ready to make that change. I would love a message on Mother’s day. The last 7 mothers day have been a huge struggle since I lost my mom in 2007. I remember that day when she was in ICU she came off life support that day and I was wanted her out of the hospital. Someone reminded me thank god you still have your mom some don’t. That statement touched my heart to that day. Two weeks later she passed I miss her dearly. I would love a message on Mother’s day to be inspired and associate something so positive on Mothers day. I am so ready but struggling to make that weight and life change! I would love a message from Heidi and Chris on mothers day!
    God Bless
    Stephanie Adolphson

  74. This is for myself. I have lost 43 kilos and have a bone disease, which has resulted in many fractures. (osteogenesis imperfecta) I go to the gym 6 days a week but my bone disease is giving me some grief and I am struggling with myself and losing the last 15 kilos …. An encouraging talk from you would be something I could play every morning and listen to as my mantra. I follow your Facebook page and have taken on many things you have helped with. It’s almost as if I need that little push up the hill to the finish line xxxx

  75. Hi Heidi and Chris,

    I have been on my weightloss journey for the majority of my life and have struggled since I was a child. Finally after 3 decades on this journey I have reached for the second time, my Phase 2 goal (if you will). I am stuck though as I have never gone any further than this.

    If Chris could share some ideas on how to proceed on the next phase of my goal I would appreciate it. 9 years ago I lost 100 lbs after having my daughter at 262 lbs, due to an abusive relationship then a divorce I gained 86 of that back. 4 years ago I was tired of being a victim and decided to take back my life. I have lost 82 lbs (I weigh 164 now @ 5’6) since then, mostly due to dietary changes as I have lacked the self discipline to stay in the gym.

    I still have fat to loose and muscle to gain, but I’m stuck at this point and need help. I have watched Chris’s shows and what he does is amazing. I have tried working with a personal trainer, but money is tight and many only care only about that. As a single mom I am trying to pass on good habits to my daughter who is a competative swimmer as well as to my own mom who has gone on this weightloss Journey with me (she has lost 60+lbs) and loves Chris too.

    I am: Nicole Lowrey, your loyal fan

  76. Hi heidi I want to enter my wife into the contest. She is my rock in every way. I just recently lost my job on this past friday so instead of getting her that gym membership she desperatley wants I won’t be able to get her anything. She has been doing so good on her diet and excercising. She gave up soda a month and a half ago and is trying more vegetables in her diet. I know she loves the show that your husband does as her and my daughter watch it all the time when its on. To give her a book to show her how to keep going to get to her fitness goal would help her or a video to keep her motivated would be the ultimate gift. I love her in all the 11 years we have been together she has never asked for anything and always takes care of me. Her name is ashley(sounds just like ash-lee). I am jason (like jay-son). Thank yall

  77. I am married and have three beautiful children. I would love to lose my extra weight so I can finally go outside and play with my children. They deserve a mom that can run around with them for more than five minutes. I have been trying for 10 yrs, since my oldest child was born to lose this weight and can never get past that first ten lbs. I desperately need your book so I will have the tools and motivation I need! I am Jennifer Nichols

  78. My name is Kimberlee Adams. I am a mother of 2 fantastic kiddos. My oldest Conner is a special needs kiddo. I also have a 6 year old daughter. Recently I was out on blood pressure medications to control my outrageous high blood pressure. The doctors believe it’s due to my weight. I’ve honestly put everyone else before myself. Now it’s come to a time where I need to think about me. If Chris were to video message me… I’d love to hear words of encouragement that I can work harder on losing weight. To help me feel better about myself. Also get a couple pointers on where to start. I’m lost when it comes to health and nutrition. I want to be here for my kids and not have to be on pills to stay alive. Inspiration is key! You guys give that to many people! What an AMAZING gift this would be! What inspiration! πŸ™‚

  79. I don’t mind seeing Chris Powell without his shirt.lol And thank you for sharing his photo with us. You guys have been such an inspiration to me. I watch your shows on YouTube as we don’t get it here in Australia. Keep up the awesome work you do helping others.

  80. My name is Jamie. This will be my first mother’s day and I couldn’t be luckier. After many ups and downs trying to have a baby we were finally blessed with a little girl December 5,2013. Since having her my husband and I have turned our health around. It is important to me that our little girl grows up knowing the importance of eating healthy and living an active lifestyle. I know I need to be around for her as long as I can. Nothing beats my first mother’s day with my little girl but a message from Chris would sure be an added bonus and great encouragement to continue my family’s jouney to health πŸ™‚
    I am: Jamie

  81. My girlfriend is everything to me. We don’t have kids and we’re not married, but I wanna make a gift like your book, because she deserves it. She lost about 40kgs total (from 90 to 50), she’ doing great in university and our life is amazing! Her name is Denitsa and she’s the brightest thing in my life.

  82. A little over five years ago I weighed over 400 pounds. I have lost 232 pounds since then. I have a daughter and it was a dream that I had about her being at my funeral that prompted me to change things. I knew I wouldn’t see her graduate from high school or get married if I didn’t take action. I have accomplished quite a bit in five years and my life has completely changed. This journey has not been easy, but the fight has been worth it. I plan to be a role model for my family and generations to come. Thank you so much for all you do and for helping others change their lives. I am nominating myself. I am: Sara

  83. I am: Ashley Whittemore

    Honestly, I would like someone to just tell me that everything is going to work out. I’ve been trying my best to cope and deal properly with losing my vision to Retinitis Pigmentosa, being a single disabled parent, extremely struggling financially and going to school. My career goal is to become a Registered Dietitian. I am legally blind which has been very difficult to get through., as my vision will continue to deteriorate unless a cure is found. I still have central vision which allows me to care for my son.My son gives me strength to get through everything, but a lot of the time I feel very alone and scared about the future. For now, I am trying to keep my head up and get to the better times. I just need some sign, some something to give me hope. I am trying to be the best mother I can be to my 3 year old, because as I always tell him, he is my sunshine.

    Name: Ashley Whittemore

  84. My name is Kate Garner. I am the blessed mother of two amazing little girls. I don’t have a big year jerking story of how I got up to the weight I am at now, but someday I hope my daughters can tell the tear jerking story of how I came back down from it. I want to be the example for my children in everything. Up to now I have failed to be the example of healthy eating and healthy choices. I have already begun to change this. I have started working out and getting my kids involved. Your show has been an inspiration for me, and I would love the chance to win a copy of your book!
    Thank you for your consideration and this opportunity!
    Kate Garner

  85. My name is Natasha and I’m a 34 year old mom to 4 year old Benjamin and 2 year old Jillian. I just want to say that I find both you and Heidi very inspirational. I love and respect the effort you are putting in to changing America’s obesity problems. I used to weigh 85lbs more than I do one and I know the strength it takes to be mentally ready to lose weight. After having two kids I now have 10 more to go. Thank you for continuing to be an inspiration!

  86. I am DeeDee ( you can probably figure out how to pronounce that on your own), a mother of four that is going through a big life change. A year ago I found out I have an autoimmune disease that is kicked off by a number of food allergies (dairy and most grains). I find it terribly hard to stick to my food restrictions for a couple of reasons: 1) I hate to cook, 2) I am allergic to a lot of the substitutes people use, 3) I have to deal with 4 kids from 1-7 years old. I could really use some words of encouragement and ideas on how to stick with a mostly paleo kind of diet with so many temptations around me and a husband that is very picky about his food.

  87. Hola chris deseo de todo corazon me ayudes para vAjar de peso ya q estoy demasiado obeso y no pUedo y tengo una bb de 3 anos x kien vivir xfa t lo suplico powell

  88. Chris and Heidi,
    First of all, I want to thank you for all your help! I am a mother of one beautiful daughter yet a “mother” of three! I care for my niece and future step son as well. I was raised loving cooking, but in all the wrong ways. You two have been an inspiration to me, my fiance, and all our children. We have learned to eat, cook, and love healthy foods as well as getting in our exercise! Its hard sometimes with both of us working full time, to fit in the time to cook and work out, but thanks to your motivation, we have accomplished more than we have dreamed! We LOVE eating dinner, and taking family walks around the neighborhood together. Did I mention my fiance has gone back to school!? We are so excited to show our children that good education, food and exercise pays off! Between my fiance and I we have lost 50 pounds in the past few months by following your ideas and we just wanted to say thank you! Happy Mothers Day to you, Heidi!

    Thanks again,
    Maddie “Mother” of 3!

  89. I’m entering my mom because she works with the mentally and physically challenged and doesn’t take the time to take care of herself. I’d like you to send her encouragement on losing weight and offer tips/suggestions on how she can accomplish this with her busy schedule. She loves to cook and take care of others but I want her to take care of herself so that some medical problems she has will no longer be an issue because of her weight. Thanks again.

  90. My moms name is Gail. My name is Kelly. My mom is pretty much indescribable because there are no word big or kind enough. In 2008 my mom was over weight and almost lost her life to renal kidney failure. To think that i was only 27 years old about to lose my bestfriend. Terrifying. We spent the week of Thanksgiving praying that she fights through this. To our surprise she did just that. In the new year of 2009, my mom went on the hardest journey of her life. Weightloss. Everyday she measured her food,.started walking and never gave up. My mom is here today because she never quit. Losing over 100 pounds!!! She has maintained her healthy weight and still has a healthy eating lifestyle. She is inspiring, kind, and so very caring. I do not know who id be today if she was taken from me in 2008. Her strength and commitment to her health and her family is absolutely breath taking. I could only hope to be half of the beauty that displays. She is an honorable woman who I love so very much!

  91. Hi Chris and Heidi,
    My name is Kimberly and my mom’s name Patsy Burris. I believe she could really benefit from your advice. I don’t think there is a better mom out there. She is one of those mom’s that will give you the shirt off her back. She helps me with my kids (takes a village), helps all of her siblings when they need her, friends and just anyone who needs help.. she needs to slow down and take care of herself. Growing up she was Mom and Dad since Dad wasn’t around. She’s been going to the gym frequently but some motivation wouldn’t hurt!
    THANK YOU GUYS!
    Kimberly

  93. My mother is someone who deserves to be happy and healthy. However, she doesn?t see it. She?s turning 50 years-old and is kind of person who has never stopped and thought about herself, ever. She will work, care for her children but not herself. I?m 25 years-old and my mother still cares and wants to help me. I believe it?s time for me to help her. My mother loves dancing and loves humor. I would love for Chris to come out dancing with sunglasses on, wearing stripped socks, smiling and cheering for my mother as she steps into her weight loss journey. I would love Chris to tell my mother that it?s time for her to be happy. My mother loves Chris? positivity and he is someone that will help motivate her to want to conquer her diabetes. I would love for Chris to tell her that there?s still time to be happy and time to accomplish goals that she wants but in order for that to happen she has to push herself and do it! She has to believe in herself! I would love for Chris to tell her that she?s never alone and he believes in her. Having a video sent by Chris would be the best Mother?s Day present she could ever receive. My mother would be so grateful just to watch him and hear his encouraging words. I want her to feel hope. It would truly be a meaningful and sentimental gift. Thank you so much!

  94. I would like to Nominate my wife Jessica Short. She became a mother at the age of 19th due to the terrible circumstance of being raped and becoming pregnant. I met Jessica when she was three months pregnant and knew their was something special about her. On April 17 2007 she gave birth to a beautiful little girl named Maddilynne. She chooses to raise, love and adore maddilynne on a everyday basis. Since Maddilynne?s birth we have gotten married, 5 days later left for a deployment to Iraq, i have adopted Maddilynne, Had a beautiful son, lots of transitions and she has auditioned twice for EWL 4 & 5 this year becoming a semi finalist but not making it to finals week to ultimately live her dream of meeting you and chris in person. Jessica Follows Chris?s Carb Cycle plans as well as follows you on instagram, facebook and is constantly looking for healthy alternatives for our family. She has been through hard times but every time you post you shine a light into her health journey and i am so thankful for that. As a United States Marine who is 125 pounds its hard for me to understand why she doesn?t see the beauty i see on a daily basis. She exemplifies what a mother is.. strong.. Courageous.. Beautiful.. Caring and most of all Compassionate. She is beautiful on the inside and out and means the world to me and our children. She has lost 86 pounds in the last year and is finally down under 300. She would love a video message from Chris and yourself. Just to tell her to keep moving, working at being healthy and living life fully. She keeps those promises to herself on a daily basis and i have no doubt hearing it from y?all on Mother?s day would be the best gift i could ever give her. Even if she doesn?t get picked thank you for giving my wife a little bit of light in her darkest hour. I will never be able to repay you for that.

  95. My name is Kelly Faas. I am 50 years old and the mother of three fantastic adult daughters. I also have a fantastic husband, Paul. In September of this year I will be a grandmother for the first time. I have lost 50 pounds and I am down to 250. I follow Weight Watchers and I have joined a gym and have started walking on the treadmill. I have hit a plateau and I need some encouragement that I can continue, get over my laziness and succeed! Being a mom to adults is totally different than being a mom to children. I feel so old and past my prime. I wonder why I am bothering some days. Trying to lose and not seeing progress is frustrating. I just keep plugging along! Any encouragement is greatly appreciated. Thanks and you both inspire me!

  96. Hello my name is Jarred Ferguson and I’m going to keep this short and simple. My wife is the one that I would love to get the message from Chris. We watch the show religiously and she has been battling with the up and down with her weight loss. We have two girls 14 and 11 and she homeschools our 11 year old. So I’m sure you could understand the hard times she has with that. I just want her to get a message to help her stay on the right path of her losing her weight. I tell her she is beautiful just about everyday and she just doesn’t think so as much as I do. I know this is completely random how they are picked but she could sure use it. Thanks

    Wife’s name is: Amanda Ferguson
    I am: Jarred Ferguson (Would be best husband ever)

  97. My moms name is Renee. My name is Janna. My mom is an incredible woman. She raised me, my brother, and sister for many years as a single parent. But she never missed our sporting events, functions, etc. we had a tough childhood, but my mom is the strongest person I know! We always made it through the issues. She also took care of both of my grandparents when they were dying from cancer. She really needs this video because all these years she has taken care of everyone except for her! She has started walking and is trying to eat better. She isn’t happy with herself and has a lot of weight to lose. An incredible message from Chris would be the motivation she needs!!!! She is the best ever! I can’t imagine my life without my mom. She isn’t only my mom, but my best friend! P.S. If she wins I would love for Chris to tell her salt, condiments, and dressing are her worse enemies!!! Also eating once a day is hurting her, not helping her!

  98. Jade Vason is my daughther my name is barbara Vason,jade is a 23 year old single mother,whos dream is to be a police officer.She is in the acdemy now 15 wks in 6 more wks.

I really need to lose weight and become healthier for my family it has been hard i just got switched to third shift which is difficult in its self. My wife has done mire than her share in taking care if us I dont know what I would do without her.It has taken a toll on all of us my family means the world to me I would love some encouraging words and tips from Chris and you we are huge fans and love to watch extreme makeover weight loss etc. Thank you for your time hope to hear from u soon!

  100. I am a mother of 3 who lost 100 pounds 2 years ago. Sense then I have gained back 40 pounds and I keep trying to get back on track and the weight just isn’t going anywhere… Encouragement to keep going would be amazing… Love you guys and all that you do! My dream is to compete in the cross fit games someday. Dream big or Go sit on the couch!

  101. I’m not a mom (57, never married), but I could SO use this video encouragement from Chris. Lost 150 lbs., but stuck for the past 1 1/2 years with almost 50 lbs. to go. I keep sabotaging myself! Have always struggled with feeling worthy. People tell me I’m amazing and during this 6-year journey I’ve been blessed to inspire others–but I don’t think I quite believe it myself. Love you, Chris. Thank you for caring so much for those of us whom much of society considers weak or lazy or gross or invisible. You are a gift.

  102. I’ve restarted my weight loss journey January of this year. I’ve lost 25 pounds with about 100 more to go. This time I want to be the lifestyle change that sticks. I’m tired of doing the yo yo dieting and then gaining more weight after having lost some.
    I have a small support system but no one really lies to voice their encouragement. They watch from the sidelines. In my mind its because if been on a kick before ad failed. I guess part of me thinks they’re waiting on that and seeing if this time works before getting behind me.
    I’d like encouragement from Chris telling me to keeping up and to look how far I’ve come and that I have the power within.

  103. I would like to know how to get myself motivated and not make excuses. I use to teach group exercise classes and I am the mother of three teenagers. I am constantly going but have no energy and need to make time for myself! I have been married for 15 1/2 years and just want to have energy again. I am 35 years old. My name is Frances Chaney

  104. I would love a personal message from Chris. I need to hear how I’m worth more then the number on the scale. I need him to tell me how to get past the mental block that keeps me stalled and not able to get out of the twos. I would like to hear Chris give me that pep talk that only he can give so I can play it over and over until it sticks in my head that I can do this !! Thank you

  105. I would like to Nominate my wife Jessica Short. She became a mother at the age of 19th due to the terrible circumstance of being raped and becoming pregnant. I met Jessica when she was three months pregnant and knew their was something special about her. On April 17 2007 she gave birth to a beautiful little girl names Maddilynne. She chooses to raise, love and adore maddilynne on a everyday basis. Since Maddilynne’s birth we have gotten married, 5 days later left for a deployment to Iraq, i have adopted Maddilynn, Had a beautiful son, lots of transitions and she has auditioned twice for EWL 4 & 5 this year becoming a semi finalist but not making it to finals week to ultimately live her dream of meeting you and chris in person. Jessica Follows Chris’s Carb Cycle plans as well as follows you on instagram, facebook and is constantly looking for healthy alternatives for our family. She has been through hard times but every time you post you shine a light into her health journey and i am so thankful for that. As a United States Marine who is 125 pounds its hard for me to understand why she doesn’t see the beauty i see on a daily basis. She exemplifies what a mother is.. strong.. Courageous.. Beautiful.. Caring and most of all Compassionate. She is beautiful on the inside and out and means the world to me and our children. She has lost 86 pounds in the last year and is finally down under 300. She would love a video message from Chris and yourself. Just to tell her to keep moving, working at being healthy and living life fully. She keeps those promises to herself on a daily basis and i have no doubt hearing it from y’all on Mother’s day would be the best gift i could ever give her. Even if she doesn’t get picked thank you for giving my wife a little bit of light in her darkest hour. I will never be able to repay you for that.

  106. My mom Vickie is amazing. She raised four very successful children and has since bettered herself by going back to school and finding herself through testing her limits, exercising, and living more healthy. She has encouraged me to live better and I have found my love of exercise. Over many obstacles, she has found triumph. I couldn’t be more proud. Her name is Vickie Sigley.

  107. I have a very hard time with Mother’s Day for the simple reason that I was not blessed to be a mother due to my obesity. Life without children can be very lonely at times. Few years ago we rescued a little Chihuahua that became my little hairy son, he filled my life with laughter and hope.This little dog loved me no matter how big I was and he touched my heart forever.He passed away very unexpectly three years ago and I was left with a broken heart! Few months after we lost Diego, my husband rescued a little white furry friend that was alone with out food or water for 23 days and he survived! Kasper came into my life when I was hurting for the loss of my other dog. Everyday Kasper reminds me that life is worth fighting for that we can’t give up!
    If Kasper could talk, I know he would ask me what would I want for Mother’s Day …..I would tell him.. I would love a book from Chris. I think the world of him for the simple reason that he is willing to help those that have lost hope!
    Kasper gives me hope that perhaps some day in the eternities I will have a chance to be a mom!

  108. The name of my mother is Louise and I am her daughter Audrey . I’m 18 and I have a sister Anika of 15. My mother is an exemplary mother . She is generous , talented, beautiful and the best mom. She takes care of my sister and me , she listens to us, she is a friend, a wonderful cook and an excellent seamstress . I would be very pleased if you could give her a nice and happy moment to thank her for what she does for us and how much we are grateful . She deserves beautiful gifts . She always puts me and my sister before her and it’s time to do the opposite . I would like that she takes any time to relax , takes care of her health and appearance . I think you would be perfect candidates for motivating her. I ‘m really sorry my English. My mother and I, we are Canadian and speak French . Would it be possible for you to say some words in french ? Thank you very much for giving her this gift , you are models to follow !

    Thank you a lot ! πŸ™‚

  109. Hi, my name is Sharon and my beautiful mom’s name is Gloria. If I could give my mom anything, it would be for her to see herself through my eyes, because I see the most amazing, smart, beautiful, incredible person that I can only hope to be like. My mom works so hard to provide for everyone and never asks for anything in return. So I’m asking for her, please tell her what an amazing person she is, tell her that even though times are tough that she can get through it because she has already overcome so much, tell her that she is an inspiration to her family, but most important of all, tell her that the only thing better than having her as my mom, is my kids having her for a Nana.

  110. I think your video message would help me get back on track…I was doing well then fell off the wagon so to speak. I could watch it daily to help me focus….with having a very intense job, husband kids and dick parents I find myself struggling daily coping….I start the day great with your bod-e shake but by night I fall apart or let the stress of my job get to me πŸ™ makes me sad why I can’t keep it together

  111. My mom’s name is Sharon, my name is Tiffany. My mother is my pillar of strength, without her I have no idea where I would be right now, I love her dearly… She gave me a roof over my head and continues to support me when I can’t afford to do it myself, she is awesome, beautiful and my best friend. I would love for you to give her some love and encouragement because she struggled with weight for a long time and she works hard taking care of everyone else and doesn’t spend a lot of time taking care of herself. I think it’s time she understands it’s okay to put herself first and others second. Thank you for this opertunity!!!

  112. Hi,my name is Stacey Howard. I am a mother of 3 boys and a grandmother to one grandson. I work everyday to help others who are sick and i would really like to win this contest. It would show me that someone cares about me too. My mom passed away so i cant do it for her. Thank you
    My name is Stacey Howard

  113. My wife is Tina carbone. She has struggled with weight loss and weight gain and trying to get our family to eat healthy for the past few years. She is at her highest weight now and is particularly distressed. My biggest concern is that she is an emotional eater and is having major problems with her mother at this time. I would love to surprise her with an inspirational message from chris ( with shirt please) because she was such a huge fan of extreme weight loss, chris, Heidi, and the whole powell clan. This would be the best Mother’s Day present ever. She is the most amazing stepmom to my kids and I realize that is the most under appreciated job on the planet. Please pick Tina!!!

  114. I am: Catherine
    I’m a proud wife and mother of three beautiful children. Cassidy 16,Mackenzie 9, and Alexander 2. Like every mother out there, we put all of our needs ahead of our own. Sports teams, extra curricular activities, homework, dinner, cleaning, it never ends. I had my son and promised myself I’d lose the weight, and through a lot of yo yoing, I’m still not there yet. I follow you and Chris religiously. I even did your Vemma program for about three months and only went off it again for not putting my needs first. Money got tight, so the foods I wanted weren’t always the ones purchased. I need Chris to give me some motivation, I just feel like I’ve always been here to help others, but when it’s my turn for help, it’s not reciptorared. To meet you Heidi and Chris is on my bucket list. You are both such an inspiration. This would sincerely be the best gift (aside from those given from my children) that I could personally ever receive. You won’t have anyone appreciating it more.
    Thanks for your consideration,
    Your loyal fan,
    Catherine Liddle

  115. Tell my mom that even though I say I don’t like it when people say I look like her, I really don’t mind. If I can look like her when I’m that old then I’ll be happy. I mean, my mom has some guns. Don’t give up mom. You are working hard to get back in shape. Our ball games can wait, I can wait an extra 30 min at the track for you to get your workout in. Happy Mothers Day! Love Josie. My momma is Rebecca Koontz and she has wanted your book so I just wanted to give her what she wants.

  116. Hi!!!! I would like to nominate myself πŸ™‚ I would love Chris to tell me words of encouragement. I was injuried in the army and after having twin girls, I am now 198 pounds. I have a goal for this year to lose the weight, get back to my prebaby weight and enter Ms. Buffalo bikini competition. Chris has showed so much compassion in his work with people and I would love if he could show me support in this hige journey. Thank you so much!

  117. Hello Heidi and Chris,
    My mom is truly the woman who keeps my whole family together. Not just my dad and siblings, my grandparents, uncles, aunts, everyone. We all go to her when something happens. We all lean on her and she accepts this without complaint. She gives us hugs when we need it, tough love when we need it, words of wisdom when it is necessary and her constant undying love. Without her I truly do not know who my family would lean on in a tough situation. She is also on a weight loss journey. I would love Chris to tell my mom that she is an amazing, strong woman. That our family would not be complete without her and that she is an inspiration of strength, power and love. Also to tell her that it is fine to not always be strong and that at times it is fine to show she is hurting just like the rest of us. Showing you are hurting is not a weakness. Also, she can make the changes in life to lose the weight for good. I would just like Chris to encourage her and ensure her that she can lose the weight! I know she can and she does to, but sometimes she forgets that it is ok to focus on herself!
    My mothers name is Sharon.
    My name is Heidi.

  118. Hi. My name is Lisa Jordan. I am a mom of two and I work full time as a special Ed teacher. I have struggled with weight all my life. I am currently 275 lbs and feeling very desperate for some inspiration. Have not been feeling well and I know my weight has a lot to do with it. I am having a really hard time managing my family and taking care if myself. I have always put myself last but I really need some advice how to find time for me. Love you both very much and give you lots of credit for running a family and a beautiful career!! Hoping to hear from you!!

  119. I am a mom of 2 and have been a mom to many. I’m also a grandmother of a beautiful little almost 2 yr old boy, and at 51(May 10th) I just signed up for the tough mudder in August in Maine. I’m scared SH$&LESS Please tell me I’m not Crazy! And what should be my focus be for training? I’m going to die aren’t I?
    I keep getting life insurance policies sent to me….tell me I’m not going to die!

  120. My mom’s name is Gaylynn Pearce. She is the nicest person I know. She always goes out of her way to makey sure everyone is happy even at her own expense. She has been through so much this year. Her mom died early this year and then just recently she was let go from her job. She has been struggling with weight loss and that has been another thing that keeps her down. I would like for her to hear that good things are possible through positive thoughts and they can happen to her.
    My mom is Gaylynn Pearce My name is Brittany Shivers

  121. Hi! My name is Connie , im a mother of 2 toddlers and a military wife .
    We have lived overseas for about 7 years . It’s just nice to hear from time to time people our thinking of us and support us . I haven’t been able to visit the US for awhile now . I would love to hear from you !
    My best ,
    Connie

  122. My name is Crissy and I just really need some encouraging motivating words from Chris. I have been heavy all my life, have dealt with depression most of my life. I need to lose this weight because I have a 5 year that needs his mommy healthy and has energy to get out and really keep up with him and also to teach him to be healthy so he doesn’t struggle like I have. My husband and I also want another child but afraid to because of my weight. I had a really life threatening labor with my son (AJ) and my husband refuses to try again because he is afraid with my weight he might lose me and leave behind two babies that need their mommy. I absolutely love Chris’s inspiration and the love and concern he puts into each contestant on extreme weight loss!!

  123. If I could, I would nominate my mom. When she was 50 she decided she wanted to get fit after raising 4 kids. And she proved it was never too late – ran every morning, rode her bike 25 miles every afternoon. I’m now 43, and not a day goes by when I hit the treadmill or bang out my strength training that I don’t think of her and thank her for the example she gave me that it can be done at any age. BUT, I can’t thank her. My mom passed away and this will be my 3rd Mother’s Day without her. We lost her to cancer in August of 2011. She was diagnosed with cancer and died only 10 days later. It was a devastating loss, to which I turned to junk food for comfort. I’m working so hard to lose those 25# I gained, and little by little I’m getting there. I love your show, your books, your inspiration, and the example you and Heidi set forth. And I love that my two sons (9 & 11) will watch with me. They marvel at your strength and we discuss health and nutrition and I feel like my mom is with us every time, leading with her example. I guess I’m nominating myself because I could just use a pick-me-up. The expert I respect above all others to encourage me, inspire me. Push me to work even harder to finish what I’ve started. I feel that this extra weight is the one thing that is a constant reminder of losing her. I guess I need a hero. I am: Debbie

  124. I need all the support and motivation for the weight loss journey that I am in. I have been starting and stopping with no success for many years now. I need someone to tell me that I can do it and that I should not have such low self esteem. As much as I want to tell myself these words, it doesn’t help unless I know someone believes in me.

  125. Hi my name is Tiffany and I am a mother of 4 wonderful children (ages 3 months-9 yrs) and an Army wife to my husband Matthew. I have struggled with my weight since I met my husband 14 years ago. My wish is for Chris give me some advice/tips to help me with weight loss while juggling 4 children and being pretty much a single mother after my husband deploys in September 2014. I would love to just shock my husband when he returns with a fablous weigh loss! I have always put everyone else first and I find it hard to do things for myself. I know that I need to so that I can be around for my children for many many years. It is wonderful to watch Chris and Heidi changing so many peoples lives.
    Thank you,
    Tiffany Townsend

  126. My name is Whitney, first of all I would like to here Happy Mothers Day. I have also been struggling with weight due to stress over the past year or so, and would like to hear a tip or two from Chris on what he recommends for stress eating. Some good words of encouragement is honestly all I would like to hear. Thank you.

  127. I would like for Chris to tell my mom that she is such an inspiration to me! My mom has a huge heart! She is a Godly woman that lives out the meaning of service. She has ALWAYS been there for my brother and I (both growing up and now in adulthood). She has been through a lot and still has a smile on her face each and every day! She has been teaching for over 20 years. She gives and gives and goes beyond the call for her students. I’ve been running for a while but we recently teamed up and did our first 5k together and she did awesome! She has been making small lifestyle changes and having great success! We are planning on her joining me for a 1/2 marathon next year! This would be great motivation for her! Thank you very much!
    My mom is Fran!
    My name is Tiffany!

  128. Hello Chris & Heidi!! I would like to nominate my mom for either a signed book or a message. Her name is Linda. My mom and I started the Bode program together 9 weeks ago. We are doing very well so far but she has moments that it is very hard for her. After 32 years married to my father, they separated and she has just moved into her own place for the first time in her life. She has done nothing but support my sister and myself for my entire life and I think it is time she gets something in return. The move and separation have been incredibly hard on her and I want her to keep going with the program so she has the self confidence to keep going whichever way the separation turns out. She is a strong woman and I want her to not only have that on the outside and the inside as well. Thank you for everything you guys do!!

  129. My name is Eileena and I would like to nominate my Mother Kimberly because she is the most amazing mom I could have asked for. She has scarficed so many things for me to be able to have a better life. After watching my mother lose aproxmetly 50 pounds she inspired me to start my own journey last year I went from being a unhappy 16 yearly who weighed 300 pounds to a 17 year old that now weighs 220 pounds and is not done losing weight. I would have never been able to change my life with out my AMAZING mothers help. This has been a really hard year for my mother she lost her father and my grandfather I know it would mean the world for my mother to receive a video message from Chris. Thank you !

  130. My wife name is Sheri. My name is Dante. She adore Chris and Heidi lots. I’m deaf an my wife is hearing. We have twin boys and they are soon 8 months old on May 6th. We truly blessin have our beautiful twin boys. I strongly believe that my wife is super mom because she is attending college as full time student and full time mother to twin boys. She handle with it with no problem while I’m at work as full time. I don’t know how she do it. That’s why I called her super mom by which she is. She teaching our boys in sign language as well cause I’m deaf. I always honor her as my wife and I know that twin boys really grateful her to as their super mom. So back again that she adore you guys lots cause she is been struggle to get back flat tummy again by due carried twin boys. She always impress with Heidi with her fit body. She have big goal to accomplish it again by due have trainer by which I’m personal trainer and work with deaf clients as well. Anyway, she would love to hear from you personally to give her uplift thoughts and be positive about herself. Thank

  131. My mom is one of the most inspiring people I know and would love to get a video from Chris. When I first started watching Chris’ show I wanted to start doing the same program. I recently went through the biggest failure ever and gained 30 pounds. Well, my lovely mom has continued to encourage me and even take the journey with me. This may not seem like much but encouraging words can really change anyone’s life. And I think that’s why my mom loves your show so much because it’s encouraging. It changed her life which in turn changed mine, and I thank both of you for that.

  132. My mom is amazing she has always been there whenever we
    Needed her. She is my rock and she deserves the world she is an
    Amazing women is would do or give anything for anybody
    And do without my mom Diana is just what the word mom means
    Her name is Diana Needham
    I am Shane Needham

  133. I am entering myself because I am a 27 year old mother of 3 healthy boys. I went through many health issues in each pregnancy and almost lost 2 of my babies while pregnant but were born healthy as can be. I suffered thyroid issues which lead to biopsies and gallbladder issues which resulted in removal. Since my pregnancies I’ve lost 70 pounds I went from 215 to 145 and I have 20 more to go!After 3 c-sections working out can be quite painful in the incision area! I am a full time mommy and a part time manager at a restaurant and I spend any free time I can working out and working on my diet to stay healthy for my babies! They are my world and my life. I would do anything for them πŸ™‚ I could use some motivation to get the rest of this weight off! I was bullied all my life for my weight. I can’t wait to prove them all wrong!!

  134. I am entering myself! I am just starting my journey to lose 150lbs for the hundredth time. I look to Chris and his show for the motivation. Such an incredible person!

  135. I hit a low point at 265. After my second child, I weighed more after 6 months post pregnancy than I did when I gave birth. I was deeply depressed and in a downward spiral. On December 8, 2013 I woke up and said enough is enough. I counted calories and started running. I run 3 miles a few days a week now. I’ve lost 37 lbs and have 70 more to go. Every day is a struggle. I love reading the Powell pack messages every day for inspiration. I need all the inspiration I can get.
    Mom: me, Andi S.

  136. My wife’s name is Stephanie. I am Judd Huff. I am so proud of her because she has lost 25lbs and 3 sizes so far on her journey since January 2014. Zumba has motivated her to make the gym a priority 4 days a week. Stephanie has been watching her portions and eating healthy, even when we have family events and go out to eat. She wants to lose a lot more and I KNOW she will succeed! She teaches third graders and is a very selfless person. She is a mom to two wonderful sons. We all support her in her endeavors. We love watching your show and I know she will be inspired by any message from Chris. Facebook: Judson Huff. Twitter: @nebolakejames #PowellHunkGiveaway

  137. One year ago, I began my transformation and Chris’s show has helped me stay on track and motivated me to want to help others.
    I’m a single mother of a beautiful 5 year old girl, and want her to know that it’s okay to focus on yourself and be the best person you can be. I also want her to know that it’s important to be healthy and help others whenever possible. We love watching Extreme Weight Loss together, and of course agreeing how handsome Chris is! πŸ˜‰ (P.S. Happy Mother’s Day, Heidi!)

  138. I need the extra something this mothers day. My mom passed away last uear and during her illness I didnt think about myself. Now 6 months later I am spiraling and dont know how to start. I weigh 330 pounds and need direction and guidance to move forward and make myself a priority. Help me.

  139. Tell my mom that she is a strong, beautiful and perfect woman and mom. You always put others first. Us kids, the people you help at work and even caring for other peoples babies like they are your own. You drove me states away to make me happy. This is your time mom. Time to take care of you. Watching you exercise encourages me to try and be more active. Seeing you choose an apple over ice cream makes me want to try and be healthier. I hope I can be more like you. I haven’t always been the best daughter but I will try better and I love you. My mom is Rebecca Koontz and I am her daughter, Jolie (like Julie but with the o. Jo-lie). And this was from all of us, Josie, Jolie, Ashton and Aiden.

  140. My mom’s name is Michelle. I am Candice. I bought her Chris’s Choose More, Lose More For Life book for her birthday because she is constantly putting her family before herself. Due to her age, and me in the medical field (she worked two jobs to pay for me to go), I was worried about her health. Not just her physical health though, but her mental as well. I noticed she was forgetting things, mixing things up. Her physical health needed help too. Her skin was red and pale all at the same time, she was particularly gaining weight in the abdomen. You see, she’s the most selfless person I know. She traveled with my brother and I taking us to rodeos and schools. She worked day and night to provide for our family. She read your book and for the first time in as long as I can remember she did something for herself. She never complained once about the program though I’m sure she had her own internal struggles. She deserves this because she’s the definition of perseverance. My parents are going to Alaska this summer for their anniversary and proud to say she bought a bikini. Best of all, she’s sharp as a tack again. I don’t see the mental fatigue and exhaustion getting the best of her anymore. Thank you for giving my mom her life back, and the confidence to take care of herself. And it all started with a birthday gift.

  141. My name is Randi and I am a mother of 3, Justin is 4, Bella is 2 and Geno is 1. Before I had my children I had just gotten into shape, was finally happy with the way I felt and looked. Oddly my weight loss goals started as a way to prove a point to a friend that was having a hard time losing her weight. Since then I haven’t been able to find the time ( or the energy) to be able to get even close to my pre-pregnancy weight. My first and most important priority has and always will be my family, even if it means that my goals are set aside. I have watched every episode of Extreme Weight loss and if I actually qualified I would definitely try and be apart of what would without a doubt be one of the best things to happen to me. I would love to be able to win your book, it would be just like my bible. I have not had that muc support from my family to get back to a healthy livable weight, and I believe the extra push and confidence boost from Chris would be very uplifting to not only my soul but my confidence in myself to reach my goals.

  142. I’d love for Chris to tell my mom Lynn what an amazing mother she is that she is good enough and needs to focus on herself more the. Everyone else once in awhile. She recently got a knee replacement and is using it to her with a new outlook on life but I think she could use an awesome inspirational person like yourself to tell her that she’s worth it! We love watching your show and often watch it while we’re at the gym sweating so we can pretend you are talking to us! Thanks so much for the consideration Chris!

  143. My mom Debbie White, along with my dad Paul, adopted me 32 years ago this year. My mom is the biggest fan of me and my biggest cheerleader. While I have struggled she has struggled along with me. This past year my moms knees have deteriorated and she has come to realize that her activities she loves are slowly slipping away. If I could have chris tell me mom these four things it would be
    1. You are still my hero
    2. You can still do the activities you want to do…
    3. Your Family Loves YOU
    4 HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

  144. My wife and I have had a challenging year and she’s now beginning to work on trying to get healthy for several reasons. Our only child was born this past May with a unexpected cleft lip and palate and she’s spent all of her time concentrating on our daughter and her needs. She has had two surgeries so far and many obstacles to overcome but she’s doing great now and we have a break in surgeries. My wife blames herself but their isn’t a medical explanation to why our daughter was born this way. My wife, Marli, is trying to overcome many emotional issues that cause her to struggle with any diet. She needs all of the encouragement and help that she can receive because she gives so much of herself to our family. We love to watch your show together and I know she would love to receive a video from you!

  145. Hi my name is Melissa and I’m entering this for my mother Lori, last name is Guinan (guy-nun) she just turned 50years old this year and has 2kids, myself 31 and my sister is 33. I would love for her to recieve a personal message from Chris Powell because right now she could use a little push of positive motivation. My mother worked really hard to get in great shape the past few years up until recently she said she has lost her motivation to work out and has gained her weight back! I know your inspirational word is exactly what she needs to get her back to where she wants to be! Thanks!!! I hope she wins, she really needs this right now:)

  146. I don’t need 250 words. It’s simple. Just tell me that I can do it. Tell me that you believe in me. Tell me I’m worth it. Tell me that FEAR is nothing to be feared!

    For Me: Jennifer Reinhart (Rine-Heart)
    I am: Jennifer Reinhart

  147. I am Danielle Lee. I am a mother of 2 kids. And a wife to an amazing husband. I am hard of hearing, I was left at 6 months by my birth mom and my actual mom died 5 weeks before my daughter was born. If I won I would like Chris to tell me this: You are such an amazing woman to accomplish being the best mother for your kids and giving them everything at best in their childhood that you weren’t so lucky to have yourself. Congratulations on getting a job and also pursuing on going to college to better yourself on education for your family. You can do it. You are everything that you have been destined for!

  148. I am Kathy. A newly single mom to a wonderful 14 year old boy who has cerebral palsy. I have been working really hard at trying to lose weight,, but it taking forever. I am down 50 pounds. I would love to lose another 80 at least. Can you send me some encouraging words to keep me motivated? It would be greatly appreciated! I am doing this for me, but also for my son. He needs a healthy momma to take care of him for a long time. Thank you and Happy Mother’s Day to you too!

  149. I started my journey last June, I am down 55 lbs now but I’m slowly loosing that willpower to keep going :/ I know if it was easy everyone would do it but it’s true it’s soooo hard!! I wanted to loose weight for years but I loved food more than myself and finally one day I got on the scale and said NO more!! Please help me to find that control and want to again!! Thank you! Sumbmitted by me Jami Hamstad

  150. My mom is going throw a divorce. My dad verbally abused her for 30 years then recently start cheating on here. She and I have been working out and trying to get healthy. She has lost 40lbs but still has a ways to go. She is an amazing nurse and mother. She needs a pick me up after being beat down for all that time! Chris and Heidi, you’re amazing people! My mom needs to feel worthy! Her name is sue!

  151. My daughter Rachel has had a rough year, she has been laid off,went through a rough divorce and has been trying to lose weight since she was little and hasn’t had very much luck. I think a video message from you would really lift her spirits and help her to be able to get past this hump and be able to have the positive attitude she needs to start hear weight loss journey. She auditioned for the show but wasn’t chosen and I know it would mean the world to her if she could just hear from you. God Bless you and Heidi you are both amazing people!!!

  152. My 9month old wants me to type it his for her ;). My name is michelle and I’m a first time mom to the bestest baby girl I could ever ask for! I’m always trying hard to make sure she eats right so when she is old enough to make her own food choices she will choose wisely! Anyway, I’ve always been pretty healthy, go to the gym everyday, but once I had my little on I fell off the bandwagon and I want to get back on! It’s been hard. Sometimes I feel like I don’t have support. If you choose me, it would be nice to have some words of encouragement not only for me, but for my daughter! I want to set a good example for her since I’m the one she looks up too! I’m not sure where my fire went but i need it back so I can live a long healthy life and I want her to live a long healthy life too! I love watching you guys on extreme weight loss! It’s very inspiring! So even if I don’t win, I’ll still be watching and hope to find some inspiration from what you help teach others who struggle with their weight! Maybe I can get those words of encouragement from you too Heidi seeing how you are a wonderful mom of 4 (5 if you count Chris haha) you guys are awesome! Thank you!

  153. My wifes name is Kourtney Mallard. She is a beautiful mother of five children, three boys and two girls. She has struggled with her weight in the past but has been dedicated to eating healthy, regular exercise and carb cycling. So far she has lost 83 lbs and is on track to reaching her end goal. She is currently at that tough spot in obtaining her goal as the scale has stopped showing those large numbers they did in the beginning, and though she is toning and becoming healthier I feel some motivation from Chris is just what she needs, and I know this is what she would enjoy for mothers day. She has motivated me to get in shape and become healthier with her and she has backed me with starting my own company but I don’t feel that I am fulfilling my duty to motivate her. Please help me help her this mothers day.
    Thank you in advance Scott Mallard.

  154. First off a few things about my mom: 1. She’s awesome 2. She never stops 3. She reads excessive amounts diet books 4. She really wants to lose weight 5. She loves the Powells! My mom would love it if Chris said something super motivational. She is turning 50 in November and she really wants and is working to get down to her goal weight for the big day and hopefully go on a fun trip to celebrate it. ( we have to look good in our swimsuits) πŸ™‚ she’s been a yo-yo dieter forever and I think a message from a healthy hunk would be a push in the right direction and just totally awesome. πŸ™‚ Her name is Debra, Deb or even Debbie πŸ™‚ And I’m Isabella. THANKS!

  155. My wife is Paulette Brochet and she is the mother of our two sons Kyle-age 20 and Kevin-age 16. We have been married for for 28 years. She adores you Chris,and I let her πŸ™‚ she loves your TV show and even has the date on the calendar so she can watch and DVD it. She has your books and has been trying your program,but having you actually tell her and support her with a private message would just send her over the top…or a signed book,she would be speechless. My wife is a Kindergarten teacher and most of her energy is gone after she arrives home. She has a hard time getting started with exercising whether it’s your DVDs which she loves,or just walking on the treadmill. She needs a push from you Chris! When we were in Arizona we had planned on meting you on a mountain climb,but due to unforeseen circumstances with our son,we couldn’t make the climb that day….I’ve never heard the end of that day..not meeting Chris….she just admires what you do and what you stand for…it would be the best gift I could wish for for her,besides meeting you one day. She will also be celebrating a milestone birthday in June,so this would be a real gift. I can’t post how old or I would really be in trouble. Thank you Chris for all you do for all of us.

  156. My mom and I talk about you and Chris all the time. Chris’ show inspires us, motivates us, and pushes us to get active. We both use comments almost daily such as, “Chris would be so proud of us!” when we are going on a bike ride or “Chris wouldn’t want us eating this!” So you both are a big part of our life to get healthy. If my mother got selected for a personalized video it would mean everything to her and I. It would mean a lot if Chris would tell her that she has a lot more fight in her than she knows. That she deserves so much more than she has and that she deserves a healthy, long, happy life and she has the power and strength to achieve that. And most importantly, I would like Chris to tell her how beautiful she is and that even though she doesn’t have the easiest life and never seems to get a break, she can accomplish anything. My amazing mom’s name: Carol. My name: Ashlee

  157. I?d like Chris to tell my mom, what an amazing woman I think she is. She?s a true fighter and warrior like NO other. Let?s just take a little look at some of what she?s overcome and accomplished in the past years. She passed her Real Estate Exam, granted it took her a few times, like 1, 2 or 10. But she still passed and got her license and that?s all that matters. WAY TO GO! She got ?Top Agent? and made ?Millionaire?s Club? all in the first year! That?s pretty amazing! Then she had to go and shatter her femur!! She had to have reconstructive bone surgery and relearn to walk!!! NOW THAT, RIGHT THERE. Would be enough to make anyone give-up. But my mom, she fought! 3 weeks after she went back to work she had a heart attack and had to have quadruple bypass open heart surgery. 3 months after that, a 2nd heart attack. She didn’t let that stop you either. She came, she saw, she conquered! She is the epitome of strength, and I wish I could be only ? as strong as her. Just like I?ve been there for her, she?s been there for me through thick and thin. She?s more the just my mother, she?s my best friend and I don’t know what I?d without her. I love you mom!

  160. My name is Lauren Moderow (mode-row) and for a long time I struggled with my weight. After watching Extreme Weight Loss I finally got my butt in gear and stopped with the fad diets and started eating healthy, clean food and carb cycling. I also found a way to make exercise a part of my daily life. My friend Kami and I made a facebook page to show our journey and motivate ourselves, each other, friends, family and strangers. I would love to get a message from Chris because he is what helped me get started! <3

  161. My mom’s name is Bridget & I?m her daughter Megan. My mom is my best friend & I would do anything for her. My mom owns & operates 2 businesses, juggles family & friends & always seems to put her exercise & eating habits on the back burner. It breaks my heart to see her get so discouraged after a long stressful day & resort to a bag of chips or some sort of sugary treat for comfort & get even more discouraged when she thinks her exercise efforts for the day have been diminished. I want Chris to tell her that she can do ANYTHING she sets her heart & mind to. She has the courage & strength to push through any obstacle that comes her way. It may seem like life is always getting in the way, but it doesn’t mean she has to put things on hold, especially her health. She does everything for everyone, & it?s time to put herself first. She has a loving husband, 2 amazing kids & friends who will always support & love her no matter what. She can lose this weight, find a healthy eating plan & transform herself into the person she has always dreamed of becoming. She is already beautiful in my eyes, & I can?t wait to see the things she will soon accomplish. She just needs to find that confidence from within & a little inspirational video message from the hunky Chris who she just adores & looks up to!

  162. I would like to nominate my mom. She’s always been there for me through thick and thin. I was diagnosed with having cerebral palsy at 9 months old and she dedicated so much time to drive me to physical therapy and was always by my side before and after any surgeries I dealt with. Any time I was recovering and going through pain she’d be there crying with me and telling me I was going to get through this. If I wanted to try a sport, she always told me to go for it. Even at 28, I can still count on her for advice and encouragement when I need it. I’m extremely grateful to have her as my mom. Her name is Mari (pronounced Mary).

  163. I would like to enter my sister Starr Raisley! She has lost so much weight and I am proud of her. She’d inspires me to loose the extra weight Im struggling with. She is strong willed and determined! She deserves it! ;

  164. Oops I forgot my Mom’s name is Terre (pronounce Terry)Daughters are Amy, Leigh, Jill, Cyndy, and Nicole

  165. I would like Chris to tell my Mom how much we love and adore her! She is absolutely stunning and fabulous! She raise 5 amazing (if I do say so myself :-)) and talented daughters, three of which are triplets. She is literally SUPER MOM! We love her so much and think she is the greatest mother of all time! Thanks Heidi and Chris for all you do!

  166. Hi Heidi! I am so proud of my mom for raising 4 children mostly on her own and surviving breast cancer. My mom loves Chris and actually was the first to introduce me to extreme weightloss when it first started! I would love to win this for her. Thank you for the opportunity. My mom’s name is Betty and I am her daughter, Tara πŸ™‚

  167. Hi, my mom’s name is Autumn and she has lost 174 lbs in 11 months since Chris came into her life. She watched one episode on youtube and got hooked. She always tells me that when she feels down or even wants to give up she hear Chris’s voice telling her to listen to him and not her body, also that if she says that she can’t do something that he will prove to her that she can. She has worked so hard and I think this would bring her spirit up and make everything she is doing to get health worth everything to her. She looks to Chris for everything in this weight loss journey that she is taken.
    I’m her 16 year old daughter Samantha

  168. Hi! My mom’s name is Wendy and she would really enjoy (and deserves) an amazing mother’s day gift. She is currently tring to lose weight and to be healthier. My six siblings and I all agree that it would be awesome for you choose her. :-)We love your family and want to thank you for all your encouragement! πŸ™‚
    Hi my name is Destanee and I am 8 years old. I think ny mommy is the best mommy in the history of best mommys.

  169. My mom is Kim and she’s the hardest working woman I’ve ever met. She’s been self-employed these last 28 years in the field of massage therapy, cranial sacral, manual lymph drainage, osteopathy, and reflexology. She’s currently 56 years old and actually broke her hip last year in two places and was put out of commission for what was supposed to be 8 months – she went back to work after 3 because when my father passed two years ago without life insurance and a hoarding habit, he didn’t leave us in the greatest financial situation? I’ve been working 16-20 hours a day to help support her and she’s been working as well. Her business is getting back up to speed after the winter drought, so I figured some encouraging words and support would be appreciated. She continues to push every day through way too many trials for one person; two mortgages on a $275,000 home, leaky roof, shower, and kitchen sink, immediate family cutting us out when we started doing something different, continuous cleaning up from the mess we were left in, and my consistent absence. She?s all alone and I?d love to be there, but I need to work or she?ll end up somewhere I never want to see her? I would love for Chris to portray how strong my love is for her and tell her just how amazing and beautiful she is. True success is the difference we make in the lives of others.

  170. I would love Chris to say, ?Hi Carol, congrats on your success getting fit! You have trimmed down but kept your strength and muscle?bootcamp and eating right have paid off! Your daughter can?t wait to watch Extreme Makeover Weightloss edition with you and get pumped up for the gym each week!! Happy Mother?s Day?. Thanks!! She would love this πŸ™‚

    My mom is: Carol (Keh-rohl–like Christmas Carol!)
    I am: India

  171. I would love Chris to say, “Hi Carol, congrats on your success getting fit! You have trimmed down but kept your strength and muscle–bootcamp and eating right have paid off! Your daughter can’t wait to watch Extreme Makeover Weightloss edition with you and get pumped up for the gym each week!! Happy Mother’s Day”. Thanks!! She would love this πŸ™‚

  172. I am Sharon Markham (pronounced Markum). I have struggled with depression all my life, but my weight was not an issue. I was a size 3 in high school. At the age of 23, I decided I wanted to be healthy and began running. From then, I ran everyday. I began to crave the running. I loved it. I got married, had children and was 30 lbs overweight. I continued running, but my knee was hurting so I gave it up. After being put on Paxil (anti-depressant), I was unable to lose. After fighting it for about a year and not losing even one pound (going to the gym everyday, low fat low carb diet), I gave up trying and gained an incredible 70 lbs more. At 47, I am no longer on that medicine, and I’m tired of being fat. The hill I’m facing is now a mountain. I don’t know how your video can help, but I thought I’d try. Thanks.

  173. Chris and Heidi,
    My wife grew up heavy and it’s been a lifelong struggle for her. I believe it started because she grew up with asthma and they didn’t realize it until late in her childhood. Because of her asthma and seasonal allergies, she wasn’t as active as she could have been. Because of that she gained weight, and instead of helping her eat right, her parents told her she was fat, which brought her self esteem down. Combined with not being active, not knowing how to eat right, and low self esteem, was the perfect recipe for an obese person.
    I saw, and still see her as the beautiful person that she is and I married her. Since then, we have had five kids (that we presently home school) together and being the loving person she is puts the kids first. She has had some success when we had the gym membership, but due to hard times, we had to cancel the membership. Also due to the hard times, she had to pick up a job as a nurse assistant to help make ends meet where I fell short. And there again she is putting others before herself.
    Since then, we have picked up your books and we are trying to implement the skills you are teaching us, but it has been an uphill battle, and not without struggles and times of depression. Your encouragement would greatly help right now! Thanks.
    My wife: Amy
    I am : Chris

  174. Hey Heidi my moms name is Michelle and she loves Chris Powell and he makes me want to be a physical trainer when I grow up! We would watch Chris’s show every week,and if we didn’t have time we would just watch it on Hulu plus. We love watching Chris’s show and love when your on it!

  175. Hi my name is Mary I just retired from US Govermemt after 26 years now I want to help myself I need to lose weight but I need your help. Love you & Heidi both!

  176. My mom is: Linda Maccarone, I want my mom to have a great mother’s day. My mom has started to quit smoking she started yesterday and it’s been really hard for her to loose weight and stay on task. I want you tell her to keep going and she can loose weight while trying to quit smoking. It would really mean a lot to me. Im Lauren her daughter I am 16 years old and I would love for my mom to live a long healthy life, and she really needs big motivation, we watch your show all the time and she is in love with you. if you can tell her she can do anything she sets her mind to that would be great! thank you and I HOPE YOU PICK ME! BTW ILY U SO MUCH TO BUT IM NOT A MOM YET HAHA

  177. My name is Jessica. I have struggled w/ my weight all my adult life.After having my twins that are now 2 it got so much harder Cuz I can’t find the time. I’ve lost 52 lbs just by changing my eating habit. But I still have about 100lbs to go. My goal is to teach my 3 girls better eating habits than what I grew up with. I want to be able to dance and RUN with my kids. And hopefully one day follow in your footsteps and pay it forward by helping other ppl just like me. I would actually love to be part of the show but I can’t take time off of work. Between a full time job and 8 year in dance team and drill team. A 2 years old with Arthritis and full of doctor appointment. Doing anything for ME seems selfish at times. It’s a struggle to remember that bettering my life mean a better life for my girl. Please please please choose me. I would love the book. It would be a great tool to continue my story. It would be the next best thing to actually having you and Chris to talk to and help me.

  178. I would like to enter my mom Barbara. Both of is have been over weight for most of my life and we are finally trying to do something about it. She has surprised me how stronge she is. And how much support she is giving me to help me lost weight to.

  179. I would like to enter myself to win an autographed copy of the book because, well, I am a super huge fan. Some people think it is weird that I actually enjoy exercise and learning about nutrition, and I doubt there are very many kids my age who’s favorite show is Extreme Weight Loss, but it would be amazing to have the autographs of the two people who inspire me the most. It is my dream to meet you some day, and I know that if I keep believing, some day, it will happen. Thanks!

  180. I just want my mom to have a wonderful Mother’s Day. Her name is Debbie, she is 61 and she is the most important person in my life. It’s always been her and I and we’ve made through everything life has thrown at us. She was recently diagnosed with diabetes and hypothyroid, she is also overweight, but she is doing weight watchers and just joined her first gym! I am so proud of her, I am not ready to lose the most important person in my life. I’m a couple months she will also be at 2 years no smoking! She is making changes for the better and I want her to know it’s not going unnoticed. We live out her in Phoenix and she absolutely loves Chris’s show and of course thinks he is gorgeous so I know this would just make her year πŸ™‚ thank you for considering and good luck with the picks!

  181. i would like to enter for myself i have been overweight since kindegarden.i lost my dad over 4 years ago to cancer he never seen me at a healthy weight i would like mom to see me healthy that would be an awesome gift for her.
    moms name donna crane

  182. I would love of Chris could say congrats to my mom for being an awesome 25+ year breast cancer survivor, and for taking the steps needed to get healthy because weather she knows it or not, it’s helping me get healthy too! I want her to know she can do it!

    My mom is : Carol
    I am : April

  183. I would like to nominate one of my closest friends, who is an outstanding person and mother. I think she would greatly benefit from an encouraging message from Chris. She has lost 100 pounds in the past 2 years and even ran a half marathon in November! But in February, her father unexpectedly passed away and she has struggled with her weight since this time. She is who introduced me to the show Extreme Weight Loss and I know she thinks you and Chris are amazing. She has been such a positive and motivating influence in my life and weight loss journey. This would mean so much to her and hopefully encourage and inspire her to get back on track! πŸ™‚

    My mom is: Gena Brucker (pronounced like Gina)
    I am: Tara Billings

  184. I would love for Chris to give a personal message to my mom. The best mom I could ever ask for. She has been so supportive through out my life and always been there for encouraging words during my fitness goals. My mom has always been extremely fit and always lived a healthy life style. She has three kids, including me and has never given up on us and has always supported us with anything we do! When I started gaining weight, she would always push me to go to the gym and always provide me with healthy food choices! She is always pushing and encouraging others to get fit and eat healthy. She wakes up every morning to workout before work, to show her kids, especially me that you do have time to workout!NO EXCUSES! My mom deserves for this hunk to give her some encouragement to continue living her healthy life style! She is always focusing on others, she deserves to make this all about her! I want her to know how much all of her kids appreciate her by having Chris Powell give her encouraging words to keep doing what shes doing because it makes such an impact on everyone in her life!
    My moms name: Sue
    My name: Kelly

  185. I would like Chris to tell my mom how much her sacrifice and work ethic she shows my siblings and I each day is paying off. As a single mom of seven kids she is constantly running and never quits. Please tell her we look up to her for everything and love her unconditionally. Her positive attitude has taught us to always look at the bright side and never look back. Also tell her she is our champion and hero! Remind her there is no tougher job out there than her occupation and we wish there was a reward big enough for her heart. Tell her THANK YOU for running us to all of our soccer, basketball, volleyball, track meets and football games all in a days worth. There is no multi-tasker better than HER. Let her know we are so proud of all her accomplishments in health, family and raising us right! Remind her she’s the reason our family is so close thanks to her loving support. She’s constantly giving her own time to serve others even in the most hectic times. I wish I was as patient and considerate for others as her!! I know it kills her each time she leaves for work because she’s missing time with her kids, but remind her we are so grateful for her hard working example. My favorite memory with her growing up is playing tennis after the kids had gone to bed on weekends. And let her know I can’t wait to hit the courts with her when I come visit this summer! Thank her for keeping her head up through the hard times and teaching us to always love. Tell her she is the world’s greatest and to keep up the awesome work because one day we will be old enough to pay it back!!! Let her know she is a true CHAMP and we’re all rooting for her!

  186. My Sister is Priya Poonia!!
    I would looooveeeee for you to make not only Mother’s Day special but her entire life! She has struggled with her weight ever since she was a child. She is on her own weight loss journey and looks at Chris and Heidi for inspiration by looking at all the tips and tricks you guys do to loose weight! As we are from ENGLAND! We watch extreme weight loss episodes on YouTube and love the work you both do!

  187. The world likes to tell us what beauty is. But some of the most beautiful people I have met I have worked with on extreme weight loss, and the criteria the world uses perhaps wouldn’t be so kind. But that’s the thing, it takes most people decades to figure out that the world’s beauty isn’t lasting. You have a man who sees that right now. You are so caring to everyone around you, always thinking of yourself last. You are the best mother your daughter could ever ask for. The baby in your belly is sooo lucky. So is your husband. Thus Mother’s Day just think about all the blessings you have in your life. Let them drown out the voices of the world. The baby weight is just a mark of how much you care about the unborn babies health, not to starve it. And by the way, I think Paisley is an adorable name for a little girl. Happy Mother’s Day.

  188. I would like Chris to help my wife see how special and giving she is. Also to encourage her that she can do anything and that her recent healthy journey will be successful. I want her to truly be encouraged that there are no limits to what she can accomplish and know that she has support and love coming from all around her. She gives so much to others and I want her to be celebrated and uplifted. She is an amazing wife, mother and grandmother and I am so thankful that she is married to me.

  189. I would like Chris to encourage my beautiful wife that she can do anything that she puts her mind to. That as a teacher she gives so much to her students and deserves to put time into focusing on herself and her dreams. She wants to lose weight and get healthier so that we can start a family and I just want her to believe that she can do it. She is a theatre teacher and also has dreams of going to graduate school for costume design and I believe in her and want her to believe in herself as well. I just want her to feel special and significant and know that she is celebrated. Above all she looks up to both of you, Chris and Heidi, and feels that as a couple we are much like you in that we too are best friends and love doing things together. It is her dream that one day we can use our own transformations in life to help other people as well. I want her to truly be encouraged that there are no limits to what she can accomplish and know that she has support and love coming from all around her. She gives so much to others and I want her to be celebrated and uplifted. She is an amazing wife, and my best friend and I want nothing more than her to know that she is truly my leading lady and is a shining star to all.

  191. I would love to win a Chris video for my mom, because she has worked so hard to lose weight these past years. She works out everyday and has met every goal she has set for herself. My mom is 44 & in the best shape of her life! We are huge fans of The Powell Pack!! My mom is Juanita. I am Irene.

  192. My mom is: Denese Freeman! She is a wonderful mom and because of her I was able to actually meet Chris himself in Denver this April. She and I both went. I would like for Chris to tell her that she is beautiful and the greatest mom her three kids could ask for. She is super supportive and always someone to talk to. She would like to lose weight and learn how to fit eating healthy into her life. She often times feels very discouraged and doesn’t know where to begin. Looking back at old photos of her, she was very thin and beautiful and I just know that she could look like that again with some encouraging words from Chris!
