So, how did you feel about Danny winning it??? Everyone looked SO amazing at the season finale! Oh, and what did you think about Rebecca? Her body looked absolutely amazing but I didn't like her hair blonde at all. She would stick with the short cut but go back to her dark hair.

Hey MJA!!! I'm still here, I love love love biggest loser, but its not doing anything to help motivate me right now, even though I know how much harder it will be to lose weight after the baby if I don't do anything, I still lack motivation. Anyways... I have not liked this season as much as I usually do. I'm not sure if I just think the episodes are too long or what it is, but I feel like bored of it or something...not sure...could just be me.

I really liked last night's episode though, I love seeing the changes and was so surprised at how well they all did in their marathon, 5 1/2 hrs is really great for a first time runner! Makes me think, I can still do it, so I guess I do love BL! lol.....

I think that if Amanda makes it, she will win. She is my facebook buddy and from what people have said and what she has said, she is very skinny now. I have a feeling Rudy might make a huge change for the finale, he still had a lot to lose!!!

Hello? Is anyone still out there?

I stayed up until 12:45 a.m. to watch last night's episode. I love this show so much!! I wish there was some way to keep how motivated I feel when I'm watching it with me all the time. I'm working on that because I want to be motivational to other people as well. Jillian and Liz's conversation in this episode REALLY hit home with me. Liz said

"They're giving everything to their families. That's the Southern way for women. You're supposed to be the caretaker. Well guess what? You gotta take care of yourself first. If you take care of yourself first, you've got a whole lot more to give. At some point you lose yourself. You give so much of yourself away and you don't keep anything for yourself and you wake up and you don't know who you've become, what you've become, and you don't know how to find yourself again."

Jillian said, "You always live out loud and live proud. You own who you are and what you've done. Don't ever let anyone take that away from you again."

Wow, I think I'm going to have that made into a poster that I can read every single day!

Hi guys! Sorry I haven't been posting. Like last year, I don't get to watch the whole episode the night it's on. Sometimes I don't get caught up until the day before it's on again!! I'm finally caught up so I better post before tonight's episode airs!! LOL!

I think Tracy is nuts! Have you seen the look she gets in her eyes? Kind of scary!! I totally agree that she started the game playing awfully early but then it is a game. I was upset with her until she was picking the teams and getting upset and Alison Sweeney whispered, "Go ahead Tracy, this is your game too". That made me think, "You know what? It IS a game and if she wants to play it, she is entitled.". Do you guys think Liz is still going to go after Tracy? I noticed they hugged in last week's episode and I wondered if she was still out for blood!!

Did you guys hear about Jillian Michaels' new show??? It's called "Losing It with Jillian Michaels". I saw her talking about it on the Today Show. She actually moves in with you and your family for a week! HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE!?! I am so tempted to fill out an application but I hate the thought of being on TV. It would totally be worth it to have Jillian train our family though! LOL! Here's a link to the flyer:

I hope you guys are enjoying this season as much as I am!!

Ok, if Tracey can't work out, she needs to be sent home. I agree with Shay, it's a shame to see a healthy team sent home while she's not able to do the work.

BTW, how on earth is she losing weight?

I'm not sure how I felt about last tuesday's episode. They make tv to get good ratings, so who knows how Tracy is really acting towards everyone. I agree some have said she is like Vicky, but who knows. I'm rooting for Rudy, he seems like the underdog. Jillian really puts it out there like it is.

They eat a 1200 calorie a day diet, but are expected to burn a minimum of 6000 calories a day in exercise. The black armband that each contestant wears is called a bodybugg, and it calculates how many calories the person is burning. I think also still in the first 3 weeks they are losing excess water weight, due probably to lower carbs, low sodium, and sweating like crazy! The weight loss does decrease, but it's still around 10 pounds a week for some people.

I just watched yesterday's episode this afternoon. I think Tracey's got a long way to go to earning back the trust and respect of any of her fellow competitors, let alone the trainers. Had she even started working out with them yet before she gave them up for a 2 pound advantage? And then she ate the cupcakes...why didn't Coach Mo give her a piece of his mind and tell her to stop? It's pretty early to be playing strategy, if you ask me.

I'm just glad they're not picking on Julio anymore. I don't think he deserved it.

A bit late comment...
I was wondering too how come the contestants lose such big nos when recommended is 1-2 lbs per week...
But then they do have a lot of excess weight and that may be coming off easily ( By easily I dont mean without hard work but like by just getting the metabolism on roll)
It will be difficult for them to lose weight in such gr8 nos.. once they are in 200s or like 170s I think.. I havent seen the previous seasons.. Has this happened then?

Yeah, that's a big issue every season. Especially since traditional weight loss advice doesn't recommend losing more than 2 lbs a week!

I love the tests Dr. Z does on all the contestants when they start. They are so cool!

I'd like to know how often the doctor sees the contestants. They must be under really close supervision to restrict calories so much. I've been seeing a lot of criticism on the net this week about the show being too extreme in showing a weight loss none of us can duplicate at home.

I know, isn't that silly? He "only" lost 13 pounds! Holy guacamole! I'd LOVE to lose 13 pounds! LOL! And Shay really seems to have it out for him!! I'm really glad they showed them going over nutrition with the trainers. That's something they've never really focused on before. I can't believe people that are 300-400 pounds are only eating 1200 calories a day. No wonder they're losing so much weight! I wonder if next week is going to be like the usual week 2, where they don't lose a lot of weight and some even gain some weight!

I'm glad no one went home this week. I hope we get to see more about Julio. I feel sad for him. He got ripped on b/c he lost "only" 13 pounds the first week...and it looked like he wasn't working as hard this week...and yet he lost 19 pounds! I really hope they spend some time in the coming episodes following him, especially b/c he said that he's working out alone. I'd like to see what he is doing. I know he felt bad on the first show because he was chosen last. Nobody likes to be chosen last.

You know, I used to love the Biggest Loser and then I stopped watching it when I was gaining weight with my pregnancies, because I think it was making me depressed (I know that's silly, but..) Anyway, I've been watching the re-runs and getting back into it again. I find it inspiring again. :-) Unfortunately, I am a HUGE NCIS fan, which airs at the same time, but I just discovered that it re-airs on Fridays at 8 on the FLN. I am going to set my TV right now and hope not to miss it so I can join in the discussion!

Well, I FINALLY got to watch all of the season premiere. The kids like to watch it too so it takes us a couple of days to get it watched since it's on so late. After watching the premiere though, I don't know if I'm going to let them keep watching it because there's WAY too much swearing...and I'm not even talking about the stuff they beep out! I couldn't believe it when Jillian said, "Last chance workout, *itch" and then "You're going to be my *itch this season.". I wish they would tone that down because I really want my kids to be able to watch it to learn about health & exercise.

Otherwise, seeing the show again just made me realize how much I LOVE THIS SHOW! It's amazing how choked up I get watching it. I cry right along with everyone on the show. I'm glad they sent Alexandra home because I could already tell she was going to be the nasty one with the bad attitude. There's one every season and that's the part of the show I don't like.

I'm trying to get back on track and lose the weight along with the contestants. I lost two pounds this week so I think it might be working!

Can't wait until next week's episode!

Not sure if you guys had a chance to watch last nights episode but it was awesome! These people have so much to lose and I feel a real connection with most of them! What did everyone think! Jillian was a real monster, I thought but then she ended up crying, so who knows

Cool! They're bringing Daniel back? I liked him. Have they ever brought back a former contestant before? I know there are several that regained weight.

Mark your calendar! The newest season of The Biggest Loser starts on September 15th! I know I'm excited! Is anyone else!?! I just got an e-mail introducing some of the contestants. If you don't want to know anything about the show before you watch it, DON'T READY ANY FURTHER! LOL!!

************* SPOILER ALERT!! *******************

Hello, Season 8 Contestants!
It's a Season of Second Chances

Ah, second chances. As Bob Harper says, who couldn't use one of those? This season is all about getting a second chance at life. Starting September 15, we'll watch 16 contestants arrive at the ranch and start the hard work of putting their lives back together.

There's Shay (pictured at left), who comes from a series of foster homes after living on the streets as a child with a cocaine-addicted mother.

There's Abby, who lost her entire family—husband and two young children—in a horrific car crash more than two years ago.

There's Danny, who's watching his young daughter walk in his footsteps, and not in a good way. She's already becoming a closet eater at the age of 7.

And there's Daniel! We met him last season as the heaviest contestant ever at 454 pounds. He's back this season to finish what he started.

They're all here to turn things around and start fresh, to start eating right and exercising and getting away from self-defeating thinking.
