Team Tara on the Biggest Loser!

I am obsessed with the Biggest Loser. On Tuesday nights, I sit down in the den with a large glass of malbec and a tray of food and indulge. I love to watch Jillian and Bob mentally and physically abuse the contestants, especially when Bob mounts the contestants and makes them walk with him on their backs. There are always tears and drama. But the best part is the weigh-in. Sometimes I will just fast forward until the weigh in. I am intrigued with how much the contestants lose each week. And how much they weigh. I cringe at the thought of standing in front of the viewing audience in bike shorts and a sports bra. And the man boobs...geez, many women would be jealous of the size of some of the guys boobs.

How can a woman lose 11 pounds in one week? Almost impossible, even with anorexia or bulimia! This week Tara lost 11 pounds and has lost a total of 83 pounds in 8 weeks. How is this possible? Is it because she is 23 and has a great metabolism? I hope that Tara makes it to the finals and wins. Team Tara all the way! I used to work out with a trainer three times a week and follow a regimented diet. The most I was able to lose in a week was no more than 2 pounds! GRRRRRRRRR!

I want to go on the Biggest Loser. No, I am not overweight but to me, it looks like fun. I would love to spend 3-4 months away from the pressures of home and work and work out every day. It sounds divine. I guess I would have to gain a shitload of weight to qualify. Can you imagine porking up and then not get on the show? So my idea is this....why not have a Biggest Loser spinoff for people with just a few pounds to lose? I am certain I am not alone in my desire to go on the show. Anyone else feel the same way?

I SO love to watch people get on the scale and see how much weight they've lost. I love ALL before and after shows, whether it's a makeover, weight loss, etc., but I don't really care to see how they got there...just the dramatic reveal.

i was surprised to hear that trainer bob was 43. He looks a decade younger at least. then again i guess that's just what happens when you eat fish and rice and veggies.

Scandy-The best was The Swan...the ultimate in cheezey makeovers with bad weaves and chicklet teeth. The reveal in the mirror was pure heaven. Wish they would bring that show back!

Mrs. M- Bob looks great for his age. I hope he drinks and eats junk food every now and then.

I am cracking up...there is an ad on my blog for the Biggest Loser stating that they are now casting! How fast can I gain 100 pounds?
