The Biggest Loser 2007

Nine kilos in a week? Pretty unbelievable for a woman. Do the scales lie? This is a sad day. The schemers and plotters are being rewarded. Courtney who didn’t want to play basketball, not do the Commando training and Munna – I – can –eat –2-Mars-Bars –if –I-want-to-lita are still in it. Patti who hid behind everyone and then Marty…who has trained hard, worked hard, pulled his weight and the numbers and was brought back after being eliminated…by the master plan…they get to decide who leaves. The four who have given their all, who have shown such good control, shown how to work, train and participate. Those who took up the challenge of health and fitness. Just look at Greg. What an advert for the show and yet he faces elimination. Damien…the awesome inspiration, Mel who fights on and participates in spite of a fractured heel and Laura, who has busted her gut and learned to turn herself around. Munnalita and Courtney didn’t even do the challenge. Courtney pulled the pulley 18 times as opposed to the hundred plus of the others. So they didn’t kill their hands and bodies and spent the time running. Would that burn more calories, let them be able to put more into last chance training? Nine kilos in a week. I do not believe it even if scales do not lie. It’s a sad, sad day for the programme and tomorrow will be awful. It’s not about renewing yourself into health and fitness at all.
