Biggest Loser or Biggest Disappointment?

Last night was the premiere of the newest season of The Biggest Loser. Normally this show is so inspiring, especially to someone who has fought a weight problem my whole life. So I settled in, ready to watch this “feel good” show. Wow, this season has some of the heaviest people ever on the show, including a young man of 19 who weights over 400 pounds.

Everyone on the show was so excited about being picked. I mean, who wouldn’t like it if you had nothing else to do except work on getting healthy with a personal trainer and tons of encouragement and support. So you can’t imagine how annoyed I was with their “twist”.

Usually, people get weighed in and their results are posted as to the percentage of their body weight they lost that week. This is a good thing because you can compete on a level playing field so to speak. The 2 people with the lowest percentages are targeted for elimination and people vote on who will leave. SO what do they do this year??? After only ONE WEEK on the ranch, only 2 teams are safe and all remaining 9 teams had to choose one member to go home, and after 4 weeks, if their partner was still there, they could come back.

Man, this annoyed me. If people weight almost 300 pounds and need to go on a reality show to get healthy again, how the hell are they going to do it on their own? I sure hope there is another twist I don’t know about because it’s so unfair to do this to people.

On a brighter note, I am always inspired by this show and my goal is to lose 15 pounds during the duration of this program. Good luck to me and to everyone battling weight issues. The only failure is not trying to succeed.
