I think it was NBC..@_@
Anyways, part of this special wanted to see what positive and negative reinforcement had on people. So they went to this ball park and gathered up people who worked there who were overweight. They spilt them into two groups and whatever group lost the most weight won. now they took one group and had them in positive group meetings with motivational speakers and such.
They took the second group, had them change into TINY bikini like bathing suits (even the men had these tiny things, not really speedos but close).. then they took them one by one to home plate and took their picture. Then they told the group that if they didn't lose at least 15 pounds in the 2 months then they would show their pictures on the big screen during a game.
talk about motivation. the Theory was that the people who back themselves in a corner and with the fear of shame, would lose more weight. Turns out the positive group lost only slightly more weight than the negative group.
At first I was all...."Man, I wish that happened to me, because I sure would try my very hardest to lose the weight." But then I thought, I bet those poor people were in a state of panic for those 2 months. the stress must have been terrible.
Did anyone else see this?
Hardest part of working out, is that first step out the door.
