Biggest Loser Season 15 Episode 4. Spoiler alert.
I am getting even more annoyed with this show, and will censure all my swear words. This #### show goes lower and lower. They start the show with Tanya's save last show, and she's crying because she lost 0 and Ruben (American Idol winner) said he lost only 3 pounds and he's over 400 pounds! We can relate to this, when you're working so hard for something, and you're so hopeful that you're going to see progress, and then you don't and you feel disappointed.
Then there's a #### Halloween temptation challenge. The teams are vying for immunity, so there's a lot of pressure to participate and being essentially forced to eat candy. One guy ate 1000 calories in candy. Really? I kinda hate the producers for this #### spectacle of fat people over eating. And it doesn't help the contestants. And it doesn't help the viewers who also deal with temptation challenges. Blue team wins immunity.
Bob, the blue team trainer, has several competitive women weight lifters visit the team. Holley, the Olympic weight lifter is thrilled to discover that she can lose weight & still be strong. If she gets down to 165, she'll be in a different class, but still be able to compete. They showed Holley lifting 225 pounds. Must admit, that's impressive!
Jillian talks with Tumi, who grew up with no parents. Her father left when she was a baby, and her mother died when she was 14, and her step dad just abandoned his non-biological children. What a #### move! This was the beginning of Tumi's weight gain.
There's a segment of Biingo, one of the kids from last season. He's looking great, very active (no time for video games), and has a positive great attitude. His family has lost weight too--over 300 pounds! It's good to see that he made a lasting lifestyle change that spread out to his family.
There's a segment showing the workouts, they get letters from home, then the weigh in. Cut to the end: Ruben loses only 5 pounds & is eliminated.
This week, instead of chasing the number on the scale chase a feeling of happiness, contentment, powerful, loved, or whatever feeling you want. OK when you get to your goal weight, no one is going to knock on your door and hand you your happiness. Thin doesn't equal feeling good. You can start feeling good, or even great right now.
