Ok, since I don’t have TV at home, my mom or my sister record the biggest loser for me. It has been our tradition to watch it each week after our WW weigh-in. I really like the show. I did not like the last season so much because game play seemed to take away from the miraculous life change that can occur. So I watched the first episode of this season last night. I cried, and laughed and cried and laughed.
I was never that big as you already know, but the emotions and the feelings that they are experiencing are the same that we experience. Just the hardcore self-exposure and humiliation is so tough to watch. I know it is an essential step toward healing, but the hurt and fear associated with it is amazing to me. I cheer them on. Another funny aspect is when they all get to the gym and they are cheering and clapping. I think to myself, “oh man, they have no idea do they.” They will understand the journey more as time goes on, but they have made it to the starting line and that is all that matters for now. I wish though that the show did not have votes and that the person losing the least amount would just leave. That would make it more pure and more to my liking. Anyway, just my two cents. Have a good day.
