i tried, but it's just too nasty. i wouldn't put up with the yelling. no prize is worth it, and it isn't a lifestyle, unless you really hate yourself.

Yes, but that may change--I don't like it as much as I used to.

No, i tried, but i really don't like the show. i like jillian and am glad she's back, but i haven't like it since they changed the host(ess)?? or do we not call them that now as they're all actors?? (whatever was wrong with actress? politically incorrect or just stupid??)

Most of the time, but I get busy during week and choose to work out or read rather than watch it.

No. I watch vert little television and dislike the concept of "reality" shows.

Absolutely not. VERY touchy subject for me. I find it demeaning to these obese people, not motivating to me at all (because I cannot stomach to watch). It embarrasses me. Too much of that show hurts people's feelings where it's not necessary. Having them so scantily clad all the time is humliating. There are options for healthy exercises without showing every ounce of fat flopping around for the world to view (I have plenty of "fat flopping around", so I'm not being mean to them). And I happen to have seen several skinny ladies in a restaurant cracking up laughing about the "big cows" and "whales" -- I just think there's more they can do to stop so much humiliation.

This is extreme weight loss that is done under supervision. I don't think it's a realistic option for people not on the show. Having said that, I love the message. No matter what the age, state of health or size, anyone can achieve a healthier lifestyle if they just make the choice to live better for themselves and their loved ones.

I also enjoy the stories and watching the journey of each participant. It's motivating and encouraging and I for sure will be watching tonights season premiere!

Good luck to everyone here who are on their own journey already! :D

I don't like that they lose so fast, I think that is a disaster to gain it back like many of those contestants do. I do like seeing them lose weight though, I think that is encouraging to me. It shows you can do it and being fat is not a life sentence. I hope it is good and interesting casting this season.

I folowed Sparkpeople and Jillian Michaels, and lost weight and got in shape, but then I was in a hit and run car accident and was off workouts for quite awhile. I'm looking forward to the show.

Hoping to watch it and get inspiration to lose right along with them. (Even though it will be slower for me,) Keep your eyes on the prize.

I love The Biggest Loser. I find people's stories so inspirational. I'm always motivated to work out hard after watching the show. Best to watch it online or PVR it, though, to avoid commercials and reduce tv time (unless you're working out on commercials, of course).

I hope the teens on the show this season are successful at losing weight and adopting a healthy lifestyle. I'll be tuning in!

I can't stand it but my sis likes it and she often calls me to tell me all about what the latest episode is - even though I tell her I have NO INTEREST!!! UGH

Have always watched it but always felt guilty because I was sitting there eating junk food while watching it. NOT THIS YEAR....I will be walking and working out and eating healthy along with the Biggest Losers

Some seasons I watch, and some I don't. It depends on the trainers and the attitudes of the contestants. If there is too much judgment/bullying going on, then I tune out. - I will be watching tonight, but as for the rest of the season, we'll see.

I never watched this show last year. Sometimes I need to take some time off.there have also been times when I don't watch amazing Race or Survivor.

I'm so excited that the show is back emoticon

Last season was so bad that I questioned if I was going to continue to watch the show but the old contestants are gone!!

I used too, but it got weird.
I might try it again this season to see what they do with the kids.

I never thought I would watch this show when it first aired. But I caught a few shows and am addicted. Now that I am on my own weight loss journey it may be more meaningful.

The show is on tonight for 2 hours, channel 2 at 8. Then it continues on Tuesday evenings.
