'The biggest Loser'

'The Biggest Loser' has just started in England. It's...odd. I can't make my mind up if it's a good program or not. I watched it at the gym and found myself working out harder than ever. I just don't like the idea of the competitive weight loss. I understand that they are severely overweight, bu they are loosing a stone a week! That's so much. Then if they are the ones that loose the least weight they get booted out. What are your thoughts? You who are in America - what is thought of the American series?

So an update - I am at my okay weight. I have been going to the gym and monitoring my calories (but not cutting them) Today I have eaten 1300 calories :)
My life is good at the moment. I have a good job, on a good timetable. I enjoy my other days, I am practicing driving and have just ordered lots of new books which I can't wait to start. I also just got an AMAZING new phone (HTC desire) and am enjoying the perks of having a bloody clever phone (I'm such a geek).

Anyway, that was  a random post, hope you're all well.

I dont like the biggest loser, how they just chuck people off the show and away home...i wish they kept providing support (and if they do, show it on tv) once they got home and they were just out the competition you know? its kinda like dumping someone off intensive treatment without any help.

I'm glad your life is good :-) x

I used to HATE The Biggest Loser. Now I have mixed feelings about it, but I'd say that overall it is a positive show. Yes, they are losing a LOT of weight. But that's because they have a LOT of weight to lose. ha.
I agree with you, though, that competitive weight loss is a bit uncalled for, but it's a tv show.. They've gotta keep entertainment somehow.
It does encourage a lifestyle based on balanced healthy eating and exercise. I like that it is not too restrictive with the diets of the contestants. They eat what they want. They just eat healthy versions!
Anyway, 1300 calories is great if it's the afternoon or middle of the day! I don't know what time you wrote this, but I'm hoping it was then :)
Sorry this is so long!
I love your posts, btw :)
