Ok, last night the group was working on being reunited with the partner that went home. Looking back, the 1st week all the teams split up and one member went home while the other member stayed at the ranch. The group that was at the ranch had Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels as trainers to whip their bodies back in shape. All of those that went home had to work out with the same effort as those on the ranch.

The one thing that got most of the rest of the players was the temptation this week, where each person was offered pizza, fried chicken nuggets, tacos and cupcakes to consume. The players at home were given the same challenge and the team that devoured the most calories was offered a trip back home to workout with their partner trained by Bob Harper. Well, Mandi ate a piece of pizza to try to get home and see her kids. All the other teams at the ranch ate nothing. The game switches to the player at home and Sione of the blue team pounded down two pieces of pizza and a cupcake to take the lead. Now Joelle’s partner Carla ate over 2000 calories of junk food and they won the challenge. Bob went to Detroit and trained both of the gray team. While there Carla gave a ton of attitude and challenged Joelle that she just wasn’t doing her part. From my point, she doesn’t seem motivated enough for the show.
This week on The Biggest Loser the whole group was challenged by some mind games. Last week you remember that the contestants were split up where one team member stayed and the other went home. The group that went home didn’t have the luxury of just kicking back while the teammate that stayed had to workout. No, each one had to work hard at home because there was a chance that they get back after 30 days. You could see right away that some took this as a very important part of the experience and decided to get busy right away. Others when home and fell into the same trap even while the cameras were still rolling.
Within the first 10 minutes of the show, the oldest contestant Jerry collapses during his work out. After he was rushed to the hospital they find that his blood pressure dropped which made him pass out. He didn’t let that stop him and continued on with the show.
This post was inspired by Dr. Kal’s previous post Decrease your Likelihood of Being Hit by a Meteor which I found through The Man Page’s The Manival 8th Edition. I thought it might be entertaining to ‘poke’ some fun at the seriousness of weight loss. We all know at least one or many of the [...]
I got in to Las Vegas on Saturday afternoon and was extremely tired. I checked into my hotel and just ate some dinner before getting ready for Sunday’s Affiliate Summit. I went to bed early, had jet lag, on Saturday night. Sunday morning was an adventure. I had to find a way to get to [...]
We fat people are a minority. We are looked upon as different. Kids look at us differently. Adults look at us differently. Its a sad fact that people are judged on their appearance in today’s modern society, even after all the talks of “it’s what’s on the inside that counts.” Today I’m going to give [...]
Okay, the Super Bowl is set. Israel’s New York Football Giants versus the undefeated and unstoppable New England Patriots. I don’t think the Giants have a chance, but I didn’t think they could beat the Buccaneers, the Cowboys, or the Packers. Now that you know who is in the Super Bowl, you need to make [...]
Most everyone who is in the gym does cardio at one time or another, it’s the best way to burn calories – period! Intense work, get the heart pumping and keep it pumping. Well what most don’t know, and don’t realize about cardio is what it takes to make it effective, and most important – [...]
I doubt it does, since it’s such a tiny insignificant part of the human body. This is a continuation of yesterdays post about my come back from appendicitis. I had to stay an extra day in the hospital just because my blood was still a bit contaminated. It took me a couple of days, but [...]
I have come to the conclusion that I may be subconsciously afraid of weighing under 300 lbs. It’s been a while since I weighed under that elusive number. I have actually lost track of how long it’s been, but I know it’s been a long time. I started realizing this yesterday when I sat down [...]
I am not happy with this weigh-in. Last week I said I would lose 5 lbs for this weigh-in, but failed. I hate failing. I feel like a failure now. Losing 3 lbs wasn’t enough. I have that dubious goal of being under 300 lbs by November 1st, which now leaves me with 15 days [...]
Yes, that’s right. I have man boobs. I may not be proud of them, but I have enough guts to show them off to the world. The only reason I am displaying my man boobs is because I want to feel pressured into losing them. I have had my man boobs, or moobs, for a [...]
It’s been a few weeks since I started this whole lifestyle change and one thing I noticed was that my dirty laundry has grown tremendously. It’s as if the more I workout, the more dirty clothes I have. It’s nothing major, just something I started noticing as I was doing laundry the other day. More [...]
I have some of the ugliest stretch marks known to man. It’s rather disgusting and repulsive. Of all the things I have regretted about letting myself get so overweight, it’s my stretch marks that I regret the most. I have bunch of them along my sides that wrap around my love handles. I also have [...]
What a day. It started out wrong. Things didn’t feel right. I was dreading waking up today because I knew that I had to begin my lifestyle change. Last night I was craving some Dominoes Pizza. I even ordered it , but it never came. I guess it was fate that didn’t let it come. [...]
