Jules is a beautiful, beautiful lady who has survived so many awful things in life and now she has to leave the Biggest Loser because of her heart condition. How good it was to see her happy with her family, training under supervision and being able to meet her goal of losing weight so her health would improve and she could be there for her children who had already lost their father. She takes it all in her stride but she has taught everyone some good lessons. There is no excuse not to get fit. Jules has all the reasons in the world but she is not using them as an excuse. She has quietly aimed herself at a better life through better health. This series has particularly highlighted how weight, or rather lack of it, can make such a difference to your health and wellbeing and all you have to so is reach out and let people help you. It was so fantastic to see all the people in the house give from their hearts to her. It was amazing to see how upset Shannan was…because Jules has touched everyone with her magic and taught them well.
As for the scheming and strategies. Well…they were even more complicated than we thought! Courtney is 100% focused on the big win and he can separate heart and head and thinks remarkably coldly about how he can stay at the top of the pile. His capacity to just engage his brain is very interesting. He is the total strategist. Greg is currently the overall winner and that is so well deserved because he has given himself completely to health and fitness as has Damien who is second and Mel who is third. The top three embody the health and fitness, redirection concepts of the show and what a difference they all have made to themselves. They are a cut above. So the new entrant and the pairs should be really good!! I am really looking forward to seeing all the health and fitness stops pulled out. If the best can be topped by strategy…not on!!
