Why I Love THE BIGGEST LOSER


It's not because I'm a loser. As a matter of fact, I don't think there's any such thing as a loser. I'm not a huge television fan, but I do enjoy reality shows, and the weight loss program, The Biggest Loser, is a perfect example of why: average, everyday people with the same lives we all have. They have an impossible problem they can't solve on their own. In this case, it happens to be weight loss. But we all carry baggage--in many forms--emotional, social, financial, and so on. We all have impossible challenges to overcome.

What if you could achieve your greatest wish? Make your dreams come true. The Biggest Loser shows the blood, sweat, vomit and tears it takes to become that person you never thought you could be. I love to see the men and women on this show evolve into the beautiful people that they already are on the inside. Their inner beauty shines through their eyes as they share their pain and fears. I love them even before they are thin. I love them for their courage in exposing themselves to the world and the strength they find deep within themselves to overcome.

Not everyone struggles with weight as their issue, but we all pack the pounds on ourselves in so many different ways. We allow these weights to hold us down. To keep us from becoming.

Positive uplifting programs like The Biggest Loser remind me that dreams can come true. It inspires me to dream a little bigger, work a little harder and to shed those unnecessary things I carry around on my shoulders.

Okay, sometimes I get the urge to work out...

My all time favorite show! I won a trip to the finale in LA last May (when Michael won) and it was amazing! I've watched since the first season and will continue to watch... I love it! I feel the same as you! And I love to run on my treadmill while I watch it.

How exciting. That must have been a blast to be there in person. Running on your treadmill while watching the show is a good idea. My husband and I always start laughing because we catch ourselves sitting and snacking while it's on. I like your idea better.

Goals don't just happen, it takes a lot of work and perseverence. You're right the Biggest Loser is a lot more than about losing weight.
