Biggesgt Loser, September 20,2011

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

I may be a bit syndical here but I am watching the biggest loser. They have them split up with youngest in one team, middle group in another team and oldest in the third team. Well the youngest and middle teams really tried to win the first challenge by running most of the mile, but the older team, they walked the whole way, saying , gee we are too old to keep up to the younger two teams. PLEEASE!!!!!!, The spin this season seems to be they will run a marathon and the winner will automatically be in the finals. Well it sure wont be anyone from the older team if they dont change their attitude. The older team is people from 50 65, even when I was over 200 pounds, I had more energy and more stamina these folks. The one thing I am glad about this season is they DO NOT have partners. They dont have a family member or friend to lean on like the past couple of seasons. Even the older team is wimping out. She said her older team can perform as well as the young folks. I am hear yelling at the TV, pardon my language but WHY THE HELL NOT??????? Now a 60 year old is complaining I cant do thisI need a break. How do they expect us do this on the first day???? Where did she think she think she was going, Disney Land??????

    I am so glad Debbie went home, also. All she did was complain and always wanted to stop. What did she think she was there for, a vacation????? The trainer, come on. Just because they are older doesn't mean they can't do the exercise. I will be 60 in February and on some days, I go to three gym classes. (Group Power, Group Step and Ab Bootcamp.) I also lost about 100 pounds in the last 5 years. There is no stopping me. Now I want to teach Group Step and Group Kick.

    I agree I am 51 and in much better shape when I was 40.

    I was so glad to see Debbie go. She was so rude. They forget that the winner what 3 seasons ago was Helen and, if I remember correctly, she was over 60. That was ridiculous. I actually liked Anna because she didn't yell and scream. She did admit that obviously she was going to have to push them harder because they are lazy. I haven't decided on the drill sergeant yet. I think the older team could still come thru. I always find that the teams with the heaviest people lose the most weight initially and I don't know if there is anyone that large on the older team.

It should be an interesting season.

    I was unhappy with the older teams trainer, Anna. She seemed to let them off and said they couldn't do as much as the younger group could. She didn't push them at all. I liked the drill sargent, although I don't do well with someone yelling at me, he got results as did Bob and his team. I think the older folk with be off soon, and that is a shame because it sterotypes older people from being able to keep up with younger people and losing weight because of your age. I am 73 years old and lost 75 pounds and excercise daily. So whats with the age factor.
