Biggest Loser was awesome last night. I was sad to see Sunshine leave without being in the final four. What was really inspirational, though, was the retrospective on each of the five final players. Each one was recorded when they first came on the show. They were asked to tell the thin person they would become why they needed to keep going and what it feels like to be so fat. It was awesome. Each one of them was moved to tears by the progress they had made. Most had lost over a hundred pounds in 17 weeks. They did this with all day exercise and frigging hard work. The point is that they were reminded where they came from and the need to move forward and not backslide. The show also had two former winners. One kept her weight off and the male put all his back on. Wow. The courage it must have taken to come on the show and allow everyone to see his struggle with putting weight back on. I admire that man. Not for gaining weight, but for courage. He is in the process of relosing this weight. He is over 300 lbs. Daunting. I can't imagine what he struggles with. The point of the whole show was that they all need to stay focused. The advice was to not give yourself a pass when the weight begins to creep back on. Wow. I can relate to that having done what he did. But, so what. That is the past. Right? Truth is, we all worry about it. The final four should be interesting to watch. I am not for Koli. He was too full of himself and cocky. I want Ashley to win or Michael. They still have concern for their fellow contestants. That kind of attitude works for me. Isn't that why we all comment on each other's blogs? We all care about these struggles and really want each other to succeed. I know that is why I am here. I appreciate all of you and the common support we offer. Thanks, gals and guys. I can't do it without you!
