Biggest Losers are All Winners

The Biggest Loser television program has made us all more aware of the problems faced by overweight people. I also now understand so much more about diet and nutrition than I did before I began faithfully watching this program every week.

The people who have exposed themselves to public viewing for us to watch during their weight loss experiences are really inspiring and they are to be admired.

The shows trainers, Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper, as well as the host, Alison Sweeney, have become prominent spokespersons for a healthier lifestyle. Most of us will experience some unwelcomed weight fluctuations during our lives. We have to give a lot of credit to these incredible "Losers" for their amazing transformations: (Clicking on photos will open a larger sized picture.)

From Top, left to right: Suzy Preston, Matt Hoover, Pete Thomas, Bill Germanakos, Ali Vincent, Michelle Aguilar, and Eric Chopin. All but Suzy Preston and Pete Thomas were seasonal winners on the show.


  1. I really love this show. I was late to get into it, a few seasons before I got hooked, but now I am an addict.

    I've even got my mom and my sister hooked.

    It is so inspiring to watch. I have particularly enjoyed this season because everyone, for the most part, seem so nice and respectful and you can't help but root for them.

    Especially with the young ones and the ones whose health is on the line if they don't do it.

    It's such a great show and I love that they are doing the pound for pound challenge now so the rest of us can mark our own weight loss while helping to feed America.


  2. These people really worked hard and I imagine are a great inspiration to others. My husband lost a whole lot of weight on his own but could have been big enough in high school to have been on this show. Here's a link to the post about his weight loss experience:

  3. I agree with you, I just wish that every overweight person would watch it and be inspired to lose their weight, then we will have a much healthier population

  4. I wish, instead of the "biggest losers" we would reward the longest sustainers. As hard as it is to lose weight, keeping it off is more difficult, and the loss itself is meaningless or actually harmful if it is part of a pattern of yoyoing.
    Focusing on wiehgt loss is less about health than about sexual attractiveenss. Fine, great, everybody wants to be ebautiful -- but let's be honest about it.

  5. These individuals worked very hard to accomplish their goals but they couldn't have done it w/o team work. Having a team to support you makes all the difference in the world and you need that team to help maintain the weight loss once it's been lost. Without the support group or team, one will see how quickly the weight can be put back on. That's a no no!! Thanks for the post and reminding us that we can accomplish in this life whatever we set our minds to do.

    Friends 4 Life!

  6. Part of me would love to be on this show, but at the same time I just don't think I could push my self as hard as these people do. They are really very amazing people.


I would be very pleased if you leave a comment. I will read every one too!!!
