Inspiring Losers

Last Tuesday one of my favorite television shows, the Biggest Loser, started a new season. For those of you who are unfamiliar, the show chronicles morbidly obese individuals who compete on a ranch, with trainers, doctors, etc., for a monetary prize to see who can lose the most weight. As someone who has struggled with weight in the past, it is inspirational to watch, especially since following along as these individuals lose weight keeps me excited about maintaining my present healthy lifestyle.

This year’s show features family members as two person teams. Some are husband and wife while others are parents and children. The familial link to weight gain is huge and it’s great to see this reality TV show tackle the problem. In short, I’m really excited and no one better bother me at 8:00pm on Tuesdays because I’m going to busy watching some big losers on TV!
