The Biggest Loser 2008

Poor things. It’s not even red cabbage which is at least tastier. Boy, are they going to be smelly this week! The cabbage will detox their system, it’ll get rid of fluid, it will give them plenty of fibre, but it will also makes them very smelly! Wouldn’t want to be training with them this week. It seems they are very petty, full of whinges and complaints and they are largely lacking in backbone. We have a nation of quitters and excuse makers. I think I’ll give up now. I think he made the wrong decision. I think I know better. There is a vast difference between the team players and the self indulged and it’s quite a chasm now. We need to toughen up. We need to straighten our backs and we need to repair the damage and haul together as a team instead of looking to blame all the time. It’s always someone’s fault and we are always playing heroes and villains. The most poignant moment was when Carrieanne could not think of anything nice to say about herself. She really was right down to the wire and had no self esteem.But tonight was about ranting and raving and plotting individual escapes from the game according to the rules. We actually have people who do not want to help themselves. That’s an odd characteristic , don’t you think?
