Biggest Loser Offers Hope To The Overweight Population

Thanks for the post from Rashad Townsend

I anxiously await Tuesday nights to watch "The Biggest Loser" on satellite tv from Watching the contestants fight their demons and battle the scale, not to mention each other, is great television. While the monetary incentive of $250,000 to the winner is nice, it's really not the ultimate goal. The ultimate goal is to lose the weight that's been impossible to lose at home. It's always sad to see someone sent home early in the show, because they fell below the yellow line in the weight loss competition, but the last five minutes of the show tells the true story of how well they did once they got home. Seeing the before and after pictures and video are what I wait for each week.

The main characters each season are Bob and Jillian, the tough trainers who walk the contestants through life on the ranch. They show them the correct ways to exercise and the best foods to eat. They also get into their heads and help the contestants realize why they became overweight in the first place. Through the trainers, you realize that weight loss is a matter of eating the right foods, buckling down to the right exercise habits and getting your mind straight. Maybe one day I too will be able to make the transformations much like the ones we see on the television.
