Who Else is Addicted to The Biggest Loser?

I watch it and find myself wondering if I would even be able to do that. I think I could lose weight with a trainer pushing me that hard, but not enough weight to go on the show. I was so sad to see Amy go home tonight, but after that experience she weighs less than I do now and wears a smaller size, so I couldn't be too sad for her. I definitely couldn't be on the show, but I do like to take home exercise ideas from it to see if I could lose some weight.

I usually watch the show, but this season it is up against other stuff I like to watch. I love watching the show. I even bought one of the work out dvds. Ofcourse I have yet to actually watch the thing lol. I watch the show and I get inspired and determined to lose weight but then I lose my motivation. I think it is seeing how a lot of them gain the weight right back once they are on their own again.

I don't watch all the time since I don't always have time to watch TV. But it's a neat show. I didn't even know they had workout DVDs. You sound like me with those things, I've bought a couple last year and they remain in the original wrapping still. I found out I even have an on demand exercise channel on my TV. I started watching it once, but I just watched, I didn't participate, lol. All the people I've seen on the show lost weight even after they left. But I guess I just haven't seen the ones that gained it back. I'd definitely believe you that probably most of them gain it back. Most people can't do that much exercise like on the show.

I have been watching the show. The first season of The Biggest Loser was the best though there were temptations everywhere the contestants had to learn to stay away from them the contestants this season have it easy there are no temptations around for them to eat. The workouts they do are very hard I took one 45 minute interval traning class and about passed out so I know how hard the workouts are they are doing.

I thought they had food temptations before! I think they should bring that back, because in real life, you have food temptations. I thought they brought it back when I saw the Thanksgiving feast. But they weren't even allowed to eat it.

I love that show! I admire those obese participants trying their best to loose weight even if they are kicked out of the show. I am gifted with a good metabolism so my weight has never been my problems but I have friends who are over weight so I am encouraging them to watch the show to make them realize the importance of a good healthy body.

I'm thankful that I'm not obese due to my metabolism, but I definitely could stand to lose some weight. I think it can be an encouraging show. One of my friends that got me hooked on the show just started Jenny Craig.

I love watching the show, but I'm not crazy about what it has evolved into. Instead of focusing on weight loss, it's now more about playing a game, ganging up against other players, and may-the-sneakiest-person-win. Did you read the article in the New York Times the other day about the show? It was talking about how unrealistic it is and how the system that is being demonstrated doesn't work. For example, the article quoted Eric Chopin who was the winner a few seasons back. He has already gained back 100 of the pounds he lost. Personally, I was looking for a more permanent solution to my weight problem. I can lose the weight with no problem, but keeping it off is the hard part. However, the show is still entertaining.
