SparkPeople Biggest Loser Fans Team Messageboard http://www.sparkpeople.com/assets/nav/nav_logo_v3.gif http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individual.asp?gid=3822 Season 16 Week 7 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x3822x59548653 Not sure how I felt about the last show. <BR> <BR> I initially liked Comeback Canyon with Bob but it's getting a little boring. One of my favorite shows "Next food Network Star" has a comeback show but it is between three contestants each week to see who returns the next week. This was more fun to watch. Does anyone know if they interact with others during this time? <BR> <BR> If the're only going to show an hour, I would like to see more of the, work out or other contestant interactions ...

Another good episode of the Biggest Loser. I am so glad that Scott is still there. I am leaning towards him as being the biggest loser at the finale more than I am leaning towards Blake. I was so hoping that Rob was going home. I'm glad he has lost 11 pounds but I still don't like him. Dolvett said that Rob is going to be the key to red team's success. White team is undefeated in the challenges. I hope they continue to be undefeated in the challenges. Week 7 is l...

I would like to try the challenge they did. It would be difficult. I was happy that white team continued their challenge winning streak but sad when they lost their first weigh in. I don't like the hour long episodes. Fri, 10 Oct 2014 20:39:02 EST Say Yes to the Dress http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x3822x59405967 I saw on Facebook as well as a commercial on TLC that season 12 episode 1 is going to be on tomorrow night (10/10) on TLC at 9 Eastern time 8 Central time. Tumi from season 14 is getting a dress and Jillian Michaels is going to surprise her. I'll be watching that episode just because I want to see what Tumi looks like today. Tumi won the at home prize for season 14. If she wasn't on season 14 she was on season 15 and won the prize. I'm so happy for Tumi.

Last nights episode was good and the numbers were high. I'm glad that Scott and Blake are still there and the white time still has all 6 players. Not sure if anybody watched season 14 but white team that season had somebody quit week 1 and then had to send somebody home the very same week and that team quickly lost players until it was just Danni and Pam and then Pam was eliminated then it w... Fri, 3 Oct 2014 07:14:50 EST Starting a new journey.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x3822x59337173 Hi! I just started on Sparkpeople with a commitment to change last week and found this team today. I LOVE the Biggest Loser and look forward to making progress of my own while watching the changes the contestants are making for themselves. I will not watch from the couch this season and complain. I will make small, lasting changes. Here's to a great season and supporting each other along the way! <em>381</em> <BR> <BR> Thu, 2 Oct 2014 16:38:55 EST Season 16 Week 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x3822x59266784 Wow. This week must have been the week 2 curse delayed. <BR> <BR> I said all last season that I wanted to see more of the contestants interactions, they,re getting better but would still like more natural/authentic interactions. <BR> <BR> The ad placements are better this season. Liked seeing an old friend at Planet fitness. Placement ad gone right :-) Thu, 25 Sep 2014 23:31:16 EST Hi, I just joined this team. http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x3822x59253290 I have always enjoyed Biggest Loser and it bothers me a bit to read all the bad press the show gets. Yes, extreme measures are taken, but they are taken with the guidance of trainers and a physician overseeing these measures to assess when the risks outweigh the benefits. We are talking about people who are already at substantial risk and losing the weight is often literally a life saver. A couple people I knew criticized how thin Rachel had become last year, but I understood why she wante... Wed, 24 Sep 2014 18:35:41 EST Season 16 Week 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x3822x59190868 This has been a good episode so far. There's still 20 minutes left. I like the plot twist with Bob and the Come Back Canyon. <BR> <BR> Any thoughts about who would be season 16's Biggest Loser? I know it is still early in the season but my thoughts and guesses are Scott and Blake from the red team. They are about due for a male to win. Thu, 18 Sep 2014 21:42:23 EST Season 16 Week 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x3822x59168798 I liked the first episode. I followed Zina's career and was surprised when I saw her. But she seem to be doing fine. Maybe she just needed a jump start. <BR> <BR> I LOVE the twist with Bob. <BR> <BR> Dolvett is still dreamy. <BR> <BR> So far I like the new trainers <BR> <BR> If you like chatter about the Biggest loser and looking for a good post show.

Just rejoined today, and there doesnt seem to be much activity. Are people no longer fans of the show? I know it's changed a lot since all the so called scandals on the last couple of seasons. I am looking to loose a lot of weight within the next 12 months, lead a seditary life (desk job) but want to be able to bring my son to Disney next year and enjoy it the way I did when I was young and single. HELP! Thu, 3 Jul 2014 16:24:53 EST Season 16 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x3822x58213912 So I follow the Biggest Loser and the Biggest Loser Casting and there's a start date for Season 16. It is Thursday September 11, 2014. I am totally excited about the new season. I use the Biggest Loser and Extreme Weight Loss as motivation to keep me going in the right direction and to keep me from becoming any larger than my heaviest. I am looking forward to the new season of the Biggest Loser and seeing the new faces and seeing who wins and how much weight everybody loses.

Craig, Jay, Tumi and a few others looked really good. Ruben and the weight lifter girl (can't remember her name but she was the blond on the red team) I am not surprised that they didn't lose more than what they did. A few of them still need to lose a few more pounds. I am so glad that Tumi won the at home prize. She looked good. I can't believe she lost 175 pounds and nearly 60%.

Well maybe not for us but for the show. the contestants will confront or meet their old selves which means we will see the same story again.

David looks really different without his facial hair. He reminds me of a family friend without it. I think all of the contestants looked really good. I was glad to see Marie go home this week. As bad as it sounds she was one of the ones I was hoping to be eliminated this week. The other was Bobby. He still didn't seem to put in the effort and wanted to be there. <BR> <BR> Any guesses on who the top 3 are going to be? My guesses are Rachel, David and Jennifer...

I thought they should have kept Jay on the show instead of voting him off. I really don't like Bobby. He doesn't seem to work as hard as the other contestants and Jay busts his backside every week.

The way she drives people on the show Curves seems kind of not her style. I think if I can find one near me I might take advantage of the first week free and see what is like. Has anyone tried it yet. She sure is pushing a lot of different stuff. Exercise equipment her own website to exercise with. She must be rolling in the money.

I was not going to because I do clean eating and have been pretty successuful on it. After seeing him on Rachael ray I decided to give it a read. I thought I knew most of it from doing clean eating over the last few months but am learning a lot. I advise if you are having trouble with losing weight to give it a read. It makes sense.

I have been attempting to stay on Sparkpeople on and off for quite a while, then ended up on My Fitness Pal for a while but the site itself really is nowhere near as useful as a tool as Sparkpeople.

Was a little short for me because it did not allow enough time for contestants stories of their journey. That being said I liked the show. The look on the contestants faces was as if they were all winners. Gail's reaction was a joy to watch. Kim looked killer in that black dress. Jeremy shocked me. I was completely shocked I am happy for him. BTW, Conda's daughter is adorable. On another note, I did not see any promos for the next season. What's up with that?

I too would have been personally disappointed if I got that far and lost my spot. Yes, In the past winners have had a shot at getting into the finals but not to bump someone out that has made it to the final 3. (I could be mistaken.) However they got there by hook or crook, they're there and deserve their shot. Of the three I think Kim has proven herself to be a tough competitor, Conda is the ultimate game player and Jeremy is a funny gu...

To hit the 50% lost point, Kim needs to lose 21 lbs, and Jeremy 44.5. What Jeremy should have done, is LOSE, and go home and win $100K.

It wasn't all that interesting to me. I was rooting for chris but since she gained I thought it only fair that she be voted off at this point. I have to say that if this is about the game Conda is the ultimate game player, she may not be liked but she played this game good and since she has a lot more weight to loose she may pull it out. <BR> <BR> Next week is the week we find out what happened.

The show needs to get back to it's roots or it's toast! <BR> <link> youtu.be/tms-ayMYzb8 </link> <BR> <BR> Steve Sun, 12 Feb 2012 09:55:21 EST Brett Has Resurfaced http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x3822x46535350 So, I'm sitting here sparking and trying to cear out my e-mail inbox while flipping channels and who do I see but Brett Hoebel. It appears as though he is a trainer/health consultant on the Food Network's Fat Chef. It took a couple of minutes to confirm that on the Food Network website because I was not 100% sure, but it definitely is Brett. I hope this works out for him where the Biggest Loser did not.

It starts out with something like "everybody has one" and goes into all her face-making, talking back to Dolvett, eye rolling and fit-pitching...I am hoping so much focus on her means she is getting the boot! <BR> <BR> One could only hope. <em>334</em> Sat, 4 Feb 2012 10:22:38 EST After the Show Week 5 http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x3822x46361334 Still watching on Hulu.

I'm glad. I think Conda brings a Mean Girls vibe to the show. I was rooting against her but her attitude did make me wonder if it a coping mechanism to hide her true feelings about herself. I did like watching the head to head match ups, the trainers made it fun to watch.

I have been fighting weight for most of my adult life (weight gained during pregnancies and never really lost it). This extra weight I speak of has been around 20-25 pounds until this year.

If this has changed, please let me know. But to me it seems that BL is selling their soul for advertisements. <BR> <BR> Tue, 27 Sep 2011 23:01:33 EST New to team, not so new to SparkPeople http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x3822x44299686 Hi!

However, it was so much fun to watch them transform themselves.
