My hubby and I are Biggest Loser addicts! This season has been less motivating for me for some reason.... I still miss the season that Tara was on....that girl was a machine!

I feel like the trainers aren't beating the heck out of the girls to get them to their "breakthroughs" like they normally do. When I first saw the contestant line-up, I thought Ashley had the potential to kick butt, and lose double digits and totally show up the guys. However, they seem to be treating her with kit gloves for some reason. Maybe there's a condition I don't know about or something? I especially related to her because I used to weigh what she started at on the show, and our body types were similar. She's done well, but I just feel like with her size a 10lb loss on the ranch should be a no-brainer.

I have to say that I'm probably most inspired right now by O'Neal and Sunshine. But I have sat up and took notice of Darius (sp?) lately too...

I have to say, I'm shocked at how little game play has been involved so far. This is a great group of contestants who are serious about getting healthy!

Hahaha! The men do need a makeover! Dennis looks better with the facial hair, I find. I would sure love see lots of hair gone from the guys though.
I LOVE the show have been watching it for quite a few seasons. It motivates me, I mean they have so much more weight to lose then I do and they're moving and sweating like crazy! So if they can why can't I emoticon
I also was quite tired after watching all the olympics. It was really fun but I was so tired in the morning.

Its like they all have a friz factor!! Plus men seem to have this mentality that its bad luck to shave or cut your hair if you are doing well at something. The women PROBABLY don't stop shaving their legs just because they are still on the ranch, lol!!

It seems like every season the guys let themselves look like crap until makeover week. The ladies don't look bad, why do the guys?

LOL Jeni, I was just telling DH last night when we were watching it that most of the guys will lose a few lbs just by removing all their HAIR. Driving me nuts!!! I love Darius, he's by far my fav this season. But, oye, the hair!!

When is makeover week? I am getting really tired of the guys looking so raggedy. Michael has to cut that fro, and Daris has to ditch the Ronald McDonald look. These guys may be big, but they're not ugly, they just have bad hair!

No, I don't think she has sabotaged anybody. I think the 1st tweet was from a fan to Bob, not from Bob but the response was from Jillian.

I totally agree about the green team but I hope Migdalia will get some help through therapy or something.

Oh, and I checked the TV listings...BL isn't on this week OR next week!! BOO!!

So Jillian has sabotaged people in the past? Or was he just joking?

Re: green team, I think I would feel better about things if Migdalia had stayed and her mother went home. Every other team, the parent made the sacrifice and offered themselves to go home so their child could stay. It just seemed like Miggy expected her daughter to sacrifice for her! I felt like Migdalia was on the edge of a breakthrough, and she'll never have it because she had to go home.

Sorry I haven't been contributing much to this thread, just too much stuff to watch on TV at the same time!! Not only is Lost on at the same time as The Biggest Loser but so is American Idol!! Since I HAVE to record Lost downstairs (since our DVD recorder is down there and I watch those later) I've been waiting until we record The Biggest Loser on FLN on Friday's at 5 pm. Sooooo...I didn't get to watch last week's episode until Sunday! Whew...I guess you guys probably didn't need that much information, huh?

I absolutely loved it that O'Neal won the immunity challenge! It's so cool to see the people that think they're not going to win actually win! And, of course, I was not disappointed to see Melissa go home. I feel sorry for her because she obviously has some serious issues when it comes to losing weight but I don't think it's fair to the other people at the ranch when there is someone like her playing games and stressing everyone out.

Speaking of Melissa, I caught this on Twitter after she went home:

@MyTrainerBob Something's suspicious! I think @JillianMichaels was secretly slipping a bunch of sugar into Melissa's food supply.

@JillianMichaels Not this time. She was sick and had taken medication that made her retain water.

I thought that was interesting!! I wonder why they don't share those types of little details with the viewers!?!

Oh, and about the green team, I agree that they are a very unlikable team but I think they also need the most help. The one thing that I've learned in all of my (many) years of trying to lose weight is that when I'm having a hard time losing it, my problem is usually something else that's going on in my life. And it's pretty obvious that those two have some serious issues that they aren't even willing to talk about! I think they both have a lot of stuff they need to deal with.

So with the Olympics in progress, when will BL be on again?

I'm having trouble identifying with the show as much as I used to. As you can tell from my previous post, some of the contestants have been (to me) very unlikeable. I also cannot relate to some of the very large contestants. Then, watching Miggy walk 19 miles 2 days after having an appendectomy was just crazy. I'm an RN and we were all discussing this at work. It's dangerous to be doing that much activity after any surgery, and I think it was irresponsible of Dr. Huzinga and the show to allow that to happen. No one should be on a weight loss diet immediately after surgery. You need the extra calories and protein to repair and recover the body. Not that she should have been eating McDonalds, but 1200 calories is too low to recover from surgery.

I almost came back on last night to post what I think now of the Green team. When it came down to it, the 2 pound disadvantage wouldn't have mattered, regardless of who red had given it to, green would have still gone below the line.

While I found it distasteful that red obviously lied about throwing weigh-ins the past two weeks, the attitude of the green team was deplorable. They had no right to behave in such an unsportsman like way during the weigh in or the voting. Further, the other mom/child teams sent the mom home. Don't good mom's sacrifice for their children? That's what any one of us would do! But it was the other way around for green, and I now have a new least favorite team: green. Hoping sincerely that Miggy goes home next week.

I am really proud of white, though, for accepting constructive criticism and stepping up his workouts this week. I want to see him do well just because he started out so unhealthy. I'm proud of him.

Looking forward to one team returning to the ranch next week, and hoping it's the father/daughter team. They really need to be there!

Hello!! I'm not sure how I feel about this season but I agree I thought it was really informative and cool how they showed what their overweight bodies were doing to themselves and ect. I'm really disappointed with the game play already and it seems to carrying over into next week. Its crazy how much weight these people have to lose, unbelievable.

However, the Biggest loser did inspire me to run my first 1/2 marathon last year, so it does make a difference. I may be a little burnt out on it...lol not that it doesn't stop me from watching. I guess I enjoy when they get down to the singles or in a few weeks when I know who everyone is.

I watched last night...it was scary to see all the things he showed them...the one that really got me thinking was when they showed the Pink team I think......when he showed how it didn't only effect them but also there families....it made me realize that what I am doing to myself with this weight is also effecting my husband and my two boys in the long run.

just makes you think!!
