Every week I tune in to the television show The Biggest Loser. I have watched it in all its incarnations since it’s debut in 2005. The show chronicles families, couples, husband, wives, and just average every day people trying to lose weight. I guess what really captured my attention is how brave, or day I say “ballsy” these people are to go onto national television and agree to don bicycle shorts and an exercise bra, well the women anyway. I have to admire them for that alone!
The contestants are real people with real weight problems and are truly inspiring. They don’t do it alone though, they have two trainers, Jillian Michaels, a hard-ass who doesn’t pull any punches and Bob Harper, the softie who can turn on you in a second. Those two really make the show what it is; they honestly care what happens to the contestants, unlike other reality based shows.
The Biggest Loseralso teaches the viewers with various cooking and exercise tips throughout the show. They have dedicated a website called "The Biggest Loser Club" where you can join and follow along with the show. Seeing the before and after pictures posted there is enough to get your butt off the couch and join too!
