I am having a medical problem with my foot, so I have not been able to do the treadmill in a couple of months. I have been moderately successful in adding at least one day of yoga a week. I have had teh BL DVD for yoga with Bob for years and used it on and off. I really recommend it if you are looking for something that is no impact, and good for the core.

She will fill out some more and look less skeletal--put some water in her! But, no, i dont think her weight is un healthy. i think the amount of time she lost it was.... Meanwhile, thats why i like BL; the hope for change!

I absolutely think that her competitiveness took over, but that she will gain back enough to be healthy.

That's what I thought too she was winning a contest. It was far less healthy for her to be 260! Jillian is a drama queen anyway they always act that shocked even though she was probably in contact with all the contestants.

I think this Rachel this is WAY overblown. She was/is an athlete. She locked in on her goal and was focused and determined and went a bit over the line. Now that the pressure is off, she's in more danger of gaining it all plus more back. 30 years ago I went from 337 lbs to 160. People thought I was sick. I wasn't, nor was I anorexic. I was so focused that it took a while to come to a stop after hitting the breaks.

Well what do we all think? I know Rachel is getting a lot of flack about her crazy weight loss. What do we think? Jealous, fearful for her health? Anybody think that since she obviously didn't drink any water for three days, that she look far older than her 24 years?

I am with you. I guess the producer think that only people with emotional problems have a weight problem.

I'm paraphrasing the Beatles. I'm fixing a hole where the whirlpool feel in and stop myself from wondering.

Back in 2008 we redid the master BATHROOM and knocked out a wall to make the room bigger. The contractor that I hired came with references but I didn't check them out. I know it was my fault. About 3 years later we had a tornado come though and a couple days later I noticed a hole appearing in the hall. So I called the insurance company and they sent out a person to look at it. The agent said that it wasn't covered because it was the result of faulty work. Come to find out the contractor put a flex hose on as a drain pipe. So last month I called a pumping service that came highly recommended from my neighbor. He said that the person wouldn't do you wrong. So I called him and he came out and fixed another leak but not the drain and charged me 180 dollars. He said that he was calling the building inspector to come look at it and probably will sue the original contractor. A week later I called the original contractor and asked if anyone had contacted him because I haven't heard anything else. He said no that I was just SCAMMED. So I called another contractor to look at the hall and give me an estimate of how much it would cost to fix the hall. He said that he would do it if I brought the supplies and wouldn't charge any labor. His girlfriend came over and said that he is not going to do it for free that he will charge labor at the going rate. So since I have gotten two different comments from them. I think that I'm going to call a flooring company here in town and see what they suggest.

What do you guys think.

I am ready for the show too, it's been such a long time!

Sharon, would water walking/gentle classes be possible? When I started after an injury, they started me in the pool b/c it was easier than land walking. Hope you are better soonest!

Learn211, thanks for the response. I think I am going to talk to my neighbors and let them know my plans I will also ask them to let me know what time would be the least intrusive. I have lived on the bottom floor before and it was torture. I had to move because I could not take it. It was so stressful and I lost a lot of sleep because of it. I would never want to be that inconsiderate of others. It also seemed that the property manager could care less even though I was a long term resident.

I will report back on how it is going.

I am on a second level apartment. I have the same concerns. I have BL workout videos, and a bunch of others. I am worried about the noise. I can control the TV volume and how hard I step down on the floor, but I am not even sure what they hear below. I am going to start my inside workout in November, so I am hoping my neighbors don't hear much noise. Let me know how things turn out for you : )

Went to my PCP today and she told me again about no bending pulling pushing or lifting more than 5 pounds. She also said to stay away from the fitness center. I asked her what I can do then. She said that I can walk starting with 5 minutes 3 times a day. And then next week add another 5 minutes until I am walking 3 miles a day. I also found out that my fibromyalgia is back and that one of the meds that the nurse practitioner from Rogers put me on was interfering with my other meds.

Hope everyone has a good day with whatever you do today.

Went back to the doctor.last week and still wasn't able to see the doctor. So when they called this week I told them no that I couldn't make it because my son has an appointment for his eyes this week. I told them that I would call them back. But that was to get them off the phone. I am not going back to that place.

I did take Robert to the eye doctor though. Found out that Robert needs glasses. Robert is not looking forward to it though. He is scared that kids are going to make fun of him.

I told Robert that if anyone makes fun of you then they are not much of a good friend. But not to get confused with complementing you on how good they look.

I have a appointment with my pcp to see what she recommends since the last click ice was a bust. I didn't think that I should go back since I was lied to and that they wanted to start treatment even though I didn't get to see the doctor. That's a form of bait (getting me to come back with being told that I would be able to see the doctor) and switch (being told that the doctor was not in and that they wanted to start treatment even without a treatment plan from the doctor). All my friends have told me to not go back but instead of making a appointment with my pcp.

Hope everyone has a good day with whatever you do today.

I hated this past week's episode. I disliked Trina from the very beginning. She was way too high maintenance, and I truly believe that she will put that weight back on almost immediately.

Good morning everyone,
Went to see a new doctor this week for my back. After driving 2 hours was told that I would have to wait until next week to see the doctor because he had another patient that needed his attention at the moment. She said that the nurse practitioner can see you though. The nurse practitioner asked me what I have come in for. I told her that I have come up to see if there was anything they could help me with my back. She said that they don't do back problems. That they do neuropathic problems.

She said that I see that you weigh over two hundred pounds. She said that you would be a good candidate for our weight loss programs. She said that we need to get you exercising to lose the weight.

I told her about the restrictions that my doctor has me on and that my personal trainer and the coaches at sparkpeople have told me not to exercise until I see a specialist. I told her that your webpage says that you deal with back and joint problems.

I told my son on the way home that it is frustrating to drive 111 miles to be told that I cannot see the doctor and that they don't treat back problems.

Robert told me that he learned from history class this last year of bait and switch. He said could this be a form of that.

I told Robert that I wasn't for sure if it was or not. That if they can't help me next week then I will call a lawyer friend of mine and see what she has to say about it.

I am with your Barbara I am watching the extreme weight loss. I was very motivated this last week watching Triana. She is the one that was a nurse. I understand her emotional eating. Her mother was so mean to her and she would turn to food. I am surprised that she was not referred to a psychologist to help her with her emotional problems.

I am an intelligent person.
I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me.

We need each other.

Good afternoon everyone,
My son helped me this week clean the bathroom, dinning room and the kitchen. We still have some work to do on both the bathroom and kitchen. When I was sweeping the floor the cats thought that I was playing and was pawing at the broom. I thought that was funny. My son got a kick out of that. But I figure that by the time school starts in August we will have the house pretty much in better shape.

I have to take my son by the bowling alley today to pre bowl since he won't be here Wednesday. We are going to be spending a week at band camp thirty minutes away from home. But Robert has decided not to stay on campus for the week. So I have to drive him back and forth to camp. So keep us in your prayers that every thing will go good and that we don't get in any accidents.

I told my trainer this week that I would like to meet or beat my 5% goal of 10.90 pounds by July 4th. She weighed me and said that I only have 4.5 pounds left to lose. She said that is attainable. To start drinking half my weight in water and the pounds will start melting off.

Yesterday I was ready to start working out and my 13 year old son asked if he could join me. I told him sure. That would be wonderful. This morning after breakfast I'm going to work out with the biggest loser again.

Monday I have an appointment the dietician to evaluate what I'm eating and suggest alternatives with summer here.

Hope everyone has a great weekend if I don't see you around tomorrow.

I do the Biggest loser challenge on the WII. I like Bob Harper over Julian Michaels.

I went bowling today with my son. We had fun while there. The owner came over to us and told me that Robert missed the first week of the summer bowling league. I told her that Robert loves to bowl but not with kids that are going to cuss. She told me that none of the kids here does that. I told her that two did and I was not happy and you weren't here. Your son was.

With the water park opening in three weeks Robert wants to go swimming and cannot do both. Next week is band camp and then one week after that is church camp. She said that Robert can prebowl for those two weeks. I said we will have to think about it. She pulled Robert aside and talked to him while I was bowling. When it was his turn to bowl, Robert said that he would like to bowl during the summer league. I told Robert that I would have to think about it. Because it hurt my feelings to called a name that is insulting to women. The league isn't what it used to be. It used to be a good Christian center where you could go and have a good time with friends. Now it's about making as much money as possible.

Came back and cleaned house all afternoon until dinner time.

I hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Good morning everyone,
Thank you for the Anniversary wishes.

Everything went good. I still have left overs from supper so I can make two meals out of that. My son and I went by the boys and girls club to play some basketball and the courts were closed due to a martial arts tournament. Robert asked why they couldn't have the tournament at the dojo. I told him that not many people would be able to come. I told Robert that we will go back home and after he gets the yard done then we would go to the park and play a round of frisbee golf. He asked if dad could join us. I told him if his dad wants to yes that would be great.

We are fans of the Extreme makeover weight loss edition show. We watch it every week. Robert is wanting to write a letter to Chris Pyle and see about him getting to workout with Steve. I told Robert that he would have to get his dad's okay for something like that. ROBERT said that he wants it to be a surprise and that if he told his dad about it. I t wouldn't be a surprise then.

So I told Steve what our son wants to do for his birthday. Steve said go ahead and see what happens.

Hope everyone has an emoticon weekend out and about.

I am doing some cleaning around the house. I have a friend coming to town and a meeting in the morning. Since I like TV and spark so much I am rewarding myself with a TV show and a spark post after each room is done. It's a good thing I have a small apartment.

I'm proud of myself today. My husband sent me out to the store for DOUGHNUTS. I'm happy to say that I didn't have one of them. My son told me that I embarrassed him. The doughnuts had a sign that said 12 for $4.50. They rung up nearly 8 dollars. I told the cashier and she returned them and it said 6.60. I told her no that the sign said 4.50. She brought over the csm and asked how Robert was. I said good. Pat said the customers are always right. I said Sam Walton slogan. Robert said that I was cheap and that he wasn't going with me again.

On the way home though I nearly had a n accident. A car was backing up on me and wasn't going to stop for anything. I laid on the horn and she stopped backing up. I don't like people you do ugly things. She flipped us off and ran a stop sign.

My husband and son was telling me how good the doughnuts were and that I should have one. I guess the goals are staying true.

Oh the one wont hurt one liner. I got that a great deal when I first lost the weight. That is because most people think that healthy eating is about deprivation and it is not. I started responding by saying that the ones add up quickly. Good luck. Perhaps the next time you can take your own snack with you. Today's feature recipe (cocoa nut buddies) looks like a good alternative to doughnuts.

Good afternoon everyone,
Yesterday I went to the fitness center and worked out on the treadmill and the weight machines for a total of 96 minutes.

Today I went to church and served in the cafe. It was hard today because we were giving out chocolate covered doughnuts and regular doughnuts. Temptation was present tapping me on the shoulder saying you know that you want one. My co worker told me that one won't hurt and you have a whole week to work it off.

Hope everyone has a good day with whatever you do today and have fun with it.

Hoping everyone in OK and MO are safe and sound. It finally stopped raining here in Clarksville. Sorry I haven't been around this week.

This last week of school has been time consuming. On Monday my son told me that my husband of 17 years didn't love me anymore. Last year my son had told his counselor that my husband had been hitting me. She confronted me and told me to get out with Robert before I get hurt. I told her that my husband has never laid a hand on me in 17 years. I said that Robert doesn't like his father and doesn't want to live under the same roof. But why should I leave a home that was left to me from my late mother.

So Tuesday my son had one semester test. So I took him to the fitness center with me and he came to me while I was working out with my trainer and said I'm ready to go. I told him go have a seat I'm not ready yet. So when class was getting ready to start my son said I feel sick and need to go home. I knew that he was not sick. The owner came in and said that I needed to Take Robert home. So he got his way after all.

So Wednesday Robert had two tests and I asked the school if Robert could stay all day. They said yes. So I left him and went over to the fitness center for my one on one with the trainer.

On Thursday Robert told me that he had one semester test and needed to be picked up at 9:39. I told Robert that I would pick him up after class and one on one with Sharri. Friday was a sleep in day cause school is now out. So I rested but plan on going back to the fitness center after lunch to work out more.

I was called to the school to come by and pick up some goodies and was surprised when I walked into the 4th grade special ed classroom I helped with each year. I was told that I was the Volunteer of the Year with 700 hours and needed a picture of me with the Principal to put in next year's annual.

So that is why I haven't been around this week.

Gingerpawz, it is good that you are teaching your son some life lessons now. My son always tells me that he is very happy that I didn't just give him everything like many of his friends had because now they are clueless!

Good evening everyone,
Hope you have had a good time this week. The last two days were a mess. Monday we took the mattress off the bed just in case my son and I had to get under it. My husband was called out to the office of emergency management office just in case of tripping the sirens. We lucked out this time. Then yesterday was another rainy day.

I have almost lost another pound.

Hope you are having a better day than I am having. I was talking to my 13 year old son about his upcoming summer bowling league and how much he will have to pay for the month. He told me that he didn't have the money that someone had broken into his locker and stolen the money out of his wallet. I told him without the money he will not be able to bowl this summer. I told him that we will go and see the principal in the morning and see if the incident was caught on camera. Robert said that he lied about that and spent the money on a ds game. I took him back down to the store and received a refund. Robert then said that he wanted a coke. I told him no not until he pays his bills. He said that I will be broke then. Robert welcome to the real world.

Hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

I guess hingles is a thing this year. I've heard a lot of people getting vaccines.

I just came home from my Mother's Day lunch with my son. We went to one of those places that you would never think of or find for that matter, but oh, what bbq!! Delicious, and I brought part of my lunch home so I have dinner, too.

Good morninging everyone,
Hope that everyone had a good day yesterday. I dropped my son (Robert) off at school and then went over to the fitness center for my morning workout. Spent 95 minutes working out and listening to the personal trainer work a couple of ladies. She told me that she couldn't help me today because she has to get the church ready for her son's wedding the next day. I told her that was okay that I would just do what we did yesterday. But I also saw that as I was walking out of the fitness center one hour later that she was with another client.

I returned to the school and found out that a lot of kids were being picked up 2 hours early. The nurse asked me if I have had chicken pox or the shingles. I told her yes to both. I asked why the school is sending some of the kids home early. She said that one of the teachers have come into contact with the shingles. We are sending home the kids that hasn't received the shot for the chicken pox.

So I am glad that the day is over with and get ready for a early morning. My son is going with the beginning band to silver dollar city for their end of the year band trip.

I hope everyone has a good time today with whatever you do.

Today went good. Hung out with friends while working out. It makes 90 minutes go by fast. My husband took me out for a late Mother's Day dinner. My son got a laugh at the waitress. She thought that I was my husband's sister. After I told her that I was not Steve's sister but am his wife, she apologized for the mixed up.

Hi all! Just joined this team and looking forward to getting to know you all! I am on a roll with exercise! I just love the Biggest Loser workout dvd's - love that they have real people who are working on getting healthier. I've been a little frustrated with the slower weight loss that comes with being a little older this time around, but it's finally starting to budge a little. I'm looking forward to getting healthy and staying that way for the rest of my life! I've been doing green smoothies every morning for breakfast too - anyone else try those? My son has been joining me with the smoothies, eating no junk food, and he's doing the weight room and running at school. It helps having a partner! He refuses to do the dvd's with me though, haha. Tomorrow's Friday - I hope you all have a great weekend!

Hi everyone,
I have been having some problems with my legs going numb. So I called the doctor yesterday and was told to stay off my legs until I see her on Tuesday. I am hoping that this is going to be a fast turn around and I can get back to working out. The nurse did say that I could walk, swim, or yoga for 30 minutes but no pushing , pulling or lifting greater than 10 pounds. So I guess I will put in walk away the pounds or biggest loser yoga and enjoy it.

I just hope that whoever they get to do BL this year doesn't quit the show. The past few seasons, people have quit halfway thru - or after one week. I just don't think that is fair to all the people who applied. emoticon

On a personal note, the scale is being incredibly uncooperative but on a happier note, my pants are looser:)

I do miss the show. But I never got to watch it when it came on. It was usually a day or two later :( but, I am also glad that The Voice is on and I LOVE THIS SEASON!!!! I find it fantastic at the new guys...granted I was kinda skeptical with the new judges, but it was funny and still competitive without all the DIVA attitude from xtina. But am excited about the next season of BL and hope that there is little drama and more excitement like this season....I really thought that I was going to lose faith in this show with all that crazy with the last season. :) :)

It's been replaced by the voice, which I love. I think that is the best show like that. I don't care for the X factor, American idol, or any of those. So it works for me. Gives us a break for the season with BL. But I cannot wait for the new season to come myself.

Good evening everyone,
I want to say emoticon to everyone who emoticon for my son. Robert is now 36 hours fever free and looking forward to tomorrow. I have gained a couple of pounds this week. But I haven't worked out any this week either. I haven't worked in the house either.

So now I feel like I can leave Robert at home with his dad and go to the fitness center. Hopefully I can get the extra off and continue to lose weight and get back on track.

I don't think that Mother Nature has told old man Winter that Spring is here and to go away.

If I'm not on here before Easter I Hope everyone has a Blessed Day.

I hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Until next time,

emoticon

I wonder if the shorter season may have contributed to the reduced tension. Another possibility is that it was there and they didn't show us. That didn't seem to be true to me, but with less time on the ranch away from their families, I think it may have just been less time to get on each others nerves and create alliances that separated them from each other

I was glad Danni won-- I had been rooting for her all year, but I also thought her new look was particularly unflattering. I liked the group this year, and I didn't miss all of the infighting that they usually have. It was nice to see people deal with themselves, rather than plan elaborate sabotages.

Obviously Danni deserved the win as she had the highest % of loss but you just had to feel for Jeff...one pound was such a small margin to loose by.
As for Gina I too hoped that Pam was going to beat her out with her having 4 kids could surly use the $100,000 more than lawyer Gina but she did the work and as much as she whined and complained along the way, that is what counted.

I liked how the players were dressed this year but as usual the hair styling left much to be desired with the women and Danni's was so unflattering! I don't know why people think that going "blonde" makes you automatically more attractive? I thought she had beautiful hair in the beginning and wondered if she decided to get extensions when Ken P had it cut much shorter and then decided to go blonde from there? OH well.

I too kind of expected a little more from the girl kid contestants but they both looked and also were living much better so way to go. Bingo was helped when he grew 2 inches LOL

As for boring I think some people predicted that if there wasn't the cut throat attitudes that people would say it was boring but except when Jeff voted off Mike there really wasn't much of that sort of stuff.
I kind of wish they would do a mini season with a group that gets maybe 4 weeks on the ranch and then goes home for a period of time to see how all do on their own after that.
Interesting to read all the comments and can't wait for the next season.

I'm ready for the next one! Nobody deserved to win more than Danni. Jeff should be kicking himself over the pound because the fact is he could have left Danni in the dust but his attitude towards the trainers was horrific. I realize he is still a kid but he has a lot to learn. I was surprised Gina won the at home prize because Lisa looked so much better than she did. Bring on the next season! I guess I missed seeing Courtney. That is disappointing if she has gained it back but hopefully she will get back on track she was such a sweetheart.

I was bummed about Gina winning the at home too. Listening to her whine every week just about made me want to reach through the TV screen and smack her. I was hoping that Joe would or Lisa she looked fab, and didn't make us suffer week to week.
I was shocked that Courtney would be representing BL when she looks like she did when she started. Well Danni can ride that coat tail for a long time, if she too is rep for Subway.

I felt sorry for Jeff but Danni looked fabulous. I was very sorry that Gina won the at home. Still don't like her. Joe was really looking good.

Did anyone notice Courtney with Jared? She won the Subway thing. ANd it looks as though she gained everything back plus some....

It's not about "Jackson" throwing up, unfortunately he has that sort of system. Not his fault. It's just that BL has to show him doing it. Some of us more sensitive types, you know can't handle watching that, I myself gag on toothpaste. Even in movies when I know it isn't real makes me want to do it too.

Just a little in defense of Jackson - I know that if I am exercising hard, I begin to feel somewhat nauseous - never to the point where I vomit, but maybe that's because I let up so quickly! (No Jillian / Bob / Dolvett to keep pushing me)

Apparently that's been a long-standing problem for Jackson; he mentioned that at some point.

I felt rather badly for Jeff coming sooo close to winning - 1 pound! If it was 8 or 10 pounds, you would feel like winning was out of reach. But 1 pound - I'd be thinking of meals I shouldn't have eaten, or how I should have run further - etc. I hope he's able to rise above those thoughts / feelings.

When Danni walked out, I was so shocked at how beautiful she was. She looked like a model! The weight loss this year was amazing. Just a few that didn't seem to do that well. But overall it was a good end to this season.
I think like Ali Vincent, that Danni will be an icon for The Biggest loser. I just can't get over how she looked. She can have so much fun now, dressing herself and I am sure it won't be long before someone is in her life. All I can say is WOW!!!!
I think I will join the challenge for the next season, she inspired me to do something now.

I was so inspired by Danni. Really all the way she is beautiful.

All set here to watch the finale. Organic popcorn and chilled delicious water! I really liked this season except for the barfing and childish Gina. There wasn't any really mean people on it this time, how refreshing! Go Danni!!!!

I really hope Danni wins. She has faced the weight and the emotions that got the weight there.

Bob says that Gina never complains where has he been. All she does is complain.

What I hate about Jackson is that he is showing America that if you workout in gym you will throw up. That is so wrong. I have been to the gym no throwing up. Working out 3 hrs.
He is not eating right or something is medically wrong. The trainers should have adjusted the diet by now. Really working out at the gym does not make one vomit.

I really loved the last episode...I was not surprised to see Joe or Danni in the final...(I love Danni)...I'm torn on who should be the winner of the "at home" vote. I really liked them all. I'm so glad the back stabbing didn't seem to be there this season...but if I saw Gina cry one more time, I thought I'd jab my eyes out (uggg) I know a lot of people commented about Jackson throwing up and thought they should of edited it out....I know it might sound stupid, but I'm glad they left it in...I think it would show some people it's okay if that happens to you, work through it and keep going. I hope Danni wins ....but I'm worried she doesn't have enough weight left to win the whole thing....LOVE HER ATTITUDE!

I'm completely ecstatic for Danni! I've been for her since the beginning, she just radiates drive! I'm glad Gina is gone and hope she doesn't win the at home prize. Jeff still has a lot of weight to lose, he's a game player, but something ate at that boy badly. The last episode shed a lot of light on that. I'm with Bob in hoping that he doesn't revert back to that broken down boy in bed in a basement. Been there, done that. As for America's vote, I split mine up 5 for 5. I don't care if Jackson or Joe gets the last spot. Either one I'm fine with.
