finale of the Biggest Loser, plus thoughts from the road

Though it's old news now, Season 5 of "The Biggest Loser" came to a close, and now America has its first woman Biggest Loser. Ali looks amazing -- you can see photos and a lot of stuff on the show webpage. I was also glad that Bernie managed to win the at-home competition. Notice that Jillian continues her winning streak -- she trained both of them.

The contestants, even the ones who hadn't lost as much weight, all looked so fabulous that I think that next season, they should do the makeovers first, just to give everyone a confidence boost, and THEN start the weight loss stuff. The transformation would be even more exciting if we didn't suspect that a lot of it was the result of girdles and styling.

I'm on the road again, in a particularly bleak business-traveler hotel and thinking that I could use a little transformation of my own. I feel really fat in all the clothes I brought, and I always find myself using sugar and caffeine to keep my energy up. I just want to go stay with Jillian for a week or two, and let her knock me back into shape.

For that I'd be willing to travel.

  1. I'm glad that Ali won and Bernie too. And I think that I'll come with you to visit Jillian and she can knock us both into shape.

  2. I loved the finale too. Very glad for both Bernie and Ali. did you notice that mark's percentage loss was higher than Roger's in the end? I think that is amazing considering how much heavier Roger was to start and through the whole process.

    Oh, yes, I'm very familiar with the good old "sugar and caffeine" diet. Now, with diabetes and high blood pressure, I have to be careful about that stuff, but I know it all too well.

    Thanks for sharing your insights.
