I remember the week Jackson turned the corner when Dolvette was away & Jackson led his team workouts... It's like he caught fire & never looked back.... a truly inspiring moment. I'm looking forward to the finale tonight :)

This was a good season to start with. They came together as a group and stayed that way. Several of the past seasons had a lot of back-stabbing and game play that took away from the inspiration that the show has. I too voted for Jackson. He really has taken all of this to heart and has come a lont way this season.

I like Dani too. But I also really like Jeff. I voted for Jackson. He has done so well and Joe has too, but I think Joe will do well on his own (with his twin brother). This is the first year I watched BL and I really liked it. I could never do the program but it sure is inspiring. I thought they really did become a family. emoticon

they are castng soon for season 15. I enjoyed this season. Not so much game play as all the rest of the past seasons, especially the last one.

i didn't vote, and am good with either as 3rd finalist. also rooting for Dani for the win... not sure she has enough left to lose, but she rocked the last weighin! what a way to shed the fat & gain lean muscle!

aside from fav contestants & memorable moments like Tara winning the Car pulls... really liked this group/season & highlights. Sorry to see it ending already. Wonder when the next one is, lol

I was impressed with everyone's losses this week. Gina was lucky she had immunity. She would have been below otherwise. The coffin bit would have freaked me out a bit.

So far though, the contestants who have went home seem to be doing well. Can't wait to see how they do when they come back for the final.

I love makeover week. It usually hurts them, and now a trip home on top of that -- they will probably have low numbers this week.

they all had huge losses this week and it's showing. looking forward to makeovers & to see if Gina's epiphany's take or she has another meltdown. I hope for her sake. I was really afraid for my pink girl, whew! Hard to believe Jackson went below the yellow line with such a huge loss.... exactly what Jillian was trying to say, why put yourself at a disadvantage/risk... sometimes the contestants get on a screwy line of reasoning and no one can turn them around... but the yellow line sure made the point, eh? aside from that, I was glad they both did so well off the ranch... looks like some of the contestants have drool trouble next week @ home... Can you believe we're down to 5? I swear, they need to start with like 30 and go longer...

Yes ,I wouldn't miss Gina's incessant crying, whining and her "the whole world is against me " attitude if she left. The thing is weight loss wise she is doing well. I think she is playing games.
She might even be giving Lawyers a bad name ! emoticon

Well, Gina needs to go. Her whining and her performance in the sand challenge was pathetic. I can easily see her going home and gaining it all back because she can't get over playing the victim. She certainly isn't making any friends in the house.

Loved that the kids were back on. You can really start telling a difference, especially with the girls.

I do hope Michael wins the at home! Loved his vist with his wife on the show, sounds like she is with him on this.

emoticon go Pink!

so over the 2 who ate and the boy who voted his friend out. I know we have to take care of ourselves. I just don't think that means eating the junk or stabbing people in the back..

Loved the show! Was amazed on how good Michael looked after being home. He does have a good chance of winning the at home prize if he keeps that up.

Going to singles will be interesting. I think we got a glimse into who the game players will be, however, it was good to see that they all were not in that mode. Danni wins the cool contestant award this week.

Was disappointed at the temptation. First to give in as much as they did, and then for Francelina to reward Alex for eating too was appauling. I hope off camera Jillian ripped them a new one! Two pound advantage and Francelina still was below the yellow line. She would have gotten my vote.

Pink always seems to do well. I would imagine that they will be doing something with the teams soon to avoid losing Jillian's team all together.

i really like this season, a lot better than the last few with all the bickering/game play... I wonder if that was intentional? that they chose different types of people or if they just haven't had conflict yet.

i still hate that they have to vote people off. and I also like the clips they're showing of people's progress after they are home... and the kids/community things...


and I wonder when they will go to pairs or singles. I'd like a pink team to root for!

ok - Dolvett definately gets the Cool Guy award for this week!

Surprising the girl with the singer and taking his team boxing with Ali were way cool. Jillian also introduced a cool new way to exercise.

I also like how they are showing some of the people who have been sent home in these "photo shoot" updates. It is like giving them the makeover they won't get on the ranch.

Well I guess we all shouldn't feel so bad if we only drop a pound in a week.
Jackson from the Red team has all the benefits of being on the TV show ,with food counselling ,trainers, fitness equipment,motivators and a huge financial incentive .Gets on the scale and records a pound loss. Phew. emoticon .
The bullying speech at the middle school by the young girl was touching.

Very true. 1 lb drops are what I've received in recommendations. People who lose slowly tend to keep it off at a much higher rate than the quick drop. It also gives your metabolism a chance to sync up with your new habits.

I really enjoyed last night's show with the focus of eating healthy on a budget. I think this is something we need to incorporate into our Feb threads and our weekly meal planning.

emoticon wk 3? wow!

loved the adventures with the kids.

Little concerned about the girl left on the white team... Seems she's had big #'s 3 weeks in a row, may be due for a low week and blammo, would go home....

that's the crazy thing... drives me crazy when they lose a "low" # and they feel bad, chewed out/whatever aren't doing enough for 2, 4, 6+ lbs...

that's numbers they should be proud of & oh how I would love... but doc, just today said for around 1 lb a week. said there's all sorts of stuff going on behind the skin and the body does better losing and keeping it off if we do a 1 lb/wk rate....

I just think she lost her mojo a bit not being on the last couple of seasons. She has been better once she dialed it back a bit. The one thing she is doing this time that I think isn't helping is she keeps saying that they can quit and go home. She did it far too early in the process and at least one has taken the easy way out just like she suggests. I think if she got into their heads earlier instead of tempting them to quit, she may not have lost anyone to quitting. I think Pam's reaction at the last weigh-in showed that Jillian can reach people.

emoticon Jillian tries to break through the walls she percieves with dynamite (by yelling) generally not my cup of tea, but there has to be some way to break that wall to the ground! remember when the wall came down in the 80s? When it does for us, we will need to celebrate! This is truly the toughest wall I've banged my head against!

I know she scares the CRAP out of me! If I saw her coming at me, I turn and run the other way. If she yelled at me, I'd break down and cry on the spot - or turn around and punch her in the face! I used to like her - but she's WAAAAYYYY too uncontrolled at the moment! I'm wondering if she just wants to get rid of the White team so she can go home and forget about BL!!!

Lost track of this thread, but I'm with you ladies. I also grew up with an alcoholic father. Later in my life, he sobered up and stayed sober. It was night and day for his personality. Growing up in that environment, food was one of the things that made me feel good. It never let me down. It was wrapped up in my best memories as a child.

The show got me thinking about how my dad changed when he stopped drinking and how blessed his life became. Will my life change when I'm no longer addicted to food? How will my daily behaviors change? Very thought provoking and something I need to do some more soul searching on.

As for the "image" issue. I too avoid cameras and full length mirrors. I have looked at obese people and said to myself, at least you don't look as bad as that person, when in fact, I'm usually much fatter that those people. It is hard to put me in that category on a daily basis. Sometimes it just sneaks up on me when I do see a picture or take the time to see how I look when sitting in a chair. Or when I can't fit into a chair.

I'm a firm believer that most of the BL contestants may drop some poundage due to all day workouts, but they truely don't become Biggest Losers until they fix their heads. Once that light goes on, they become night and day different people, just like my dad did. I just need to figure out how to turn that light on.

emoticon it helped me before to state that i release the fat (aka give myself permission) ~ thinking i need to do that again... it seemed to have slithered back on... grrrr... not for long!

ordered the BL 30 day jumpstart & food journal... planning to jumpstart soon!

Yep, that's me, too, Jules! I don't FEEL fat; but I know I am. I avoid looking in mirrors - and especially storefront windows that reflect back my full image. And I avoid cameras like the plague.

I also don't remember giving myself permission to get fat. (Boy, I hate that word!) Do I need to give myself permission to get THIN????

thinking of what sparked me was the girl talking with Dolvett, it's not that I ever gave myself permission to get fat... but i do get delusional about how bad i am (picture/mirror avoidance) because i don't feel like i look & when i see it, i always feel shocked... but on the flipside, i also know i am, so i feel fat... it's such a weird delusion. time to get fit!

Something from the last show that really got me to thinking - Jillian spoke with the girl from the other team that had the alcoholic father and said something to the effect that he must have been drinking for some reason.

My father was an alcoholic as well and I "blame" alot of my weight on him - wow! Did I just say that??? Anyway, that's how I coped then and it's how I cope now. But Jillian's comment made me stop and think about WHY he was an alcoholic. I really don't know - but I may have to ask my mom and see if she has any insights into it.

From reports that I've read, they exercise about 6 hours a day. That's why those of us who work won't see those results unless we can somehow squeeze in 6 hours of exercise a day.

I find the show can be a good motivator.We need to keep things in perspective though and not expect the same weight loss results as they are obtaining.
A 29 pound loss in one week for one of the contestants sounds fishy. emoticon
A big water loss no doulbt but still.......

I am hooked. Watched both shows (I recorded them) and cried through both. Couldn't believe how many things that were on the show popped into my head after watching it. GREAT motivation.

The doctor's comments really hit me too!! I hated seeing Nate leave. How will the white team with only two left continue??

It is on Monday nights so I can watch it live. YEAH!!

Have a great weekend.

I caught that statement too Randy. The same goes for our meds. If it was chemo, we would do it, but how many times have we missed our regular meds?

The doctor had an impact on me as well -- Randy2 even commented.

He asked one of them if they had cancer -- would they put 2 hours a day into chemo therapy!!!/?? And if so -- why not put the time into losing the weight!!!

I hope we see more from the doctor, maybe they will do a snippet with 1 or 2 contestants each week... I remember the 1st time they did the doc stuff, it was eye opening. (I didn't think this year had as much mater so less impact but maybe it was just me...)

Maybe the white team will pull through. I'm glad it hasn't been about voting so far, but it is just as hard to see these people go home... again, so wish no one went home! lol ;)

I'm glad Jillian changed her approach. It seemed to inspire the ladies to kick it into gear. What got to me tonight was the segment with the doctor. That always scares the daylights out of me every season. I'm a walking timebomb unless I lose this weight. It is a real eye-opener.

Last night's show was actually the "Spark" emoticon that has got me back to SPARKPEOPLE after joining in 2010 and doing nothing.
I'm still amazed and how much weight some of the contestants can loose in the first week ! I know a lot of it is water and the amount lost slows down ,but still ....

Oh, and the guy on the white team who kept falling off the dreadmill... is he the one who left? I was so inspired by his *after the show* clip ~ perhaps the most inspiring ever in what he said about realizing other people couldn't see the changes (on the outside) becuase his real change was inside... and he would do it at home, with his family... Sounded like he really got it and will be ok... I've always thought 1 week on the ranch couldn't possibly be enough... I do hope he makes it!

:::nods::: Al mentioned at one point he was stress eating & regained 40 lbs. I think I would eat my way back up to. I really have to deal with the emotional/stress eating parts too.

i once saw a quit smoking show. 12 people divided into 2 teams, and everyone stayed till the end. The teams kept and split the prizes/$$ they won each week, and everyone was given food/exercise training and emotional counseling/support. I loved the format! There was drama simply b/c people quitting smoking r CRANKY! LOL ;)

Dang, last night I was awake, watched the challenge with the kidlets in the air telling the adults where to go.... LOVED the kidlets! Glad they are doing that. But then I woke up 1/2 way through the red team weighin (2nd team to weighin)

What the heck happened with the person who walked off?

I know that in your face yelling is not my style. works for some I guess, like military bootcamp...

What I always think I hear Jillian saying is she does the yelling for their own good, to break through the resistance to bring the contestants to an epiphany & turning point so they can embrace the change... I think Bob in the past has done the same thing, I like his style better, and still getting to know Dolvette... I like having 3 trainers...

More tonight! I was thinking it would be on Tues nights... Guess it's Mondays... darn, i like Mike & Molly on Mons and didn't have any must haves on Tues... wish i had a dvr...

I think it was the girl the left -- that really impacted me.

They were talking emotional and physical....

I told Randy2 that I know for me it's emotional. There may be a tendency for my body to store fat -- but I know I'm putting to much in.

Same thing -- I'm thrilled when folks so the lap band another weight loss surgeries and have success -- but I've told so many it's in my head -- and until they can transplant that --- I have to do the leg work.

I watched it last night. I thought it was great how they incorporated the children. I loved seeing each trainer take time to talk to them and work with them.

I didn't care for how Jillian was treating her people. I don't think I could ever have her as my trainer. I was disappointed with the girl who left. By now, you would think people would understand how the show works. She took the spot of someone else who could have used the trainers. I also felt bad for the guy who had to leave. I was really pulling for him.

I do like these players this season. They seem more compassionate to each other no matter what team they are on.

Randy, my son says the same thing each year. He thinks they shouldn't be voted off either. I'm a torn about that. The good thing is that they are giving a gym membership to continue on their journey and they still have a chance to win money.

Looking forward to tonight's show.

I didn't watch it last night but I did tape it. I watch Revenge and NOTHING can drag me from that.

Plan on watching with my cup of tea this afternoon when I get that "munchie" feeling.

I did see the segment on 20/20 about Al Roker. It was really interesting. Just shows that even with by-pass surgery you have to change your lifestyle.

I watched the show.

Good to see Jillian back -- I'm surprised though -- I had been listening to her pod cast and I'm surprised they took her back -- she wasn't very kind to the show!!

I'm going to try to make it through the season this time.

I don't know -- probably a lot of you have heard me say it time and time again -- I want to see a BIGGEST LOSER without the voting off --- I think makes it to much of a game -- but I guess that's ratings.

I great to see the kids -- I think they inspired me more than anyone else.

Sorry to see the WHITE team lose 2 people in one week.

Hoping to continue to get inspired to move more.

But to be honest last night when Jillian was chewing out those people -- if it was me -- she wouldn't have had to ask me if I'd wanted to leave -- she would have just hear a big SHAM as the door closed behind me. I know I just couldn't take that kind of stuff -- maybe that's why I'm still overweight huh.

It wasn't advertised here, Karen, as it is on one of the Sky channels, I just search every week to see if one is starting and that is a new one for us.
I can type in Biggest and then progs that start with that come up for the next week, I am surprised by what progs start with Biggest emoticon emoticon emoticon

Jillian's back! She is tough as nails, but I think that there was too much of tempting her people to quit.

Other than that, I'm liking this group of people a lot more than last seasons. I think there will be a lot more of a supportive house.

Dolvett -- total eye candy!

Loving the kids.
