The Biggest Loser 2008

While the Red team was busy whittering on about how hard done by they all were, they seem to have forgotten…that dining out could mean anything under Loser interpretations and that they had won the stupid walk before and did, in fact, have the power of the game in their own slippery little hands. They are not able to see straight at all and are so petty! The Blues showed again they can just get on with anything they are dished up, quite literally, and that little Sam is getting cheekier and funnier by the minute. He has to be the darling of the show , surely? He is just so grounded and happy and loves the game. Never thrown by it ever. Alison is so gentle and kind and has such an optimistic view of the world. It’s very refreshing to hear someone that positive and to hear someone who is so very unspoiled. Sean, well, hasn’t he come a long way facing the demons with the Commando? You can see the personal cost which he is now prepared to bear and his fear is lessened. He is learning well. But tonight, I didn’t know whether to feel sadder for Micheal or Steven. They are both mentally tortured. Micheal was so distressed by the Commando and it was obviously the style and approach which rattled him to the core and dug out his pain and feelings of worthlessness. He needs help to deal with that because he was left raw and even though it can help to deal with your own feelings yourself, that kind of stuff needs some professional help. I’d love to see Micheal get rid of that self loathing. Steven? What would he know? He has never been thin. He has no benchmark. The only thing he loves and cares about is his little girl. Being thin is a dream.Losing weight for her is not grounded in reality because he has no idea what a thin person is or how a thin person feels, so he has no real understanding of what that means. On the other hand, he knows how a little girl feels in his arms, what she means in his heart and even that much got through to Bob, because he was affected by Steven and his grief. It was terrible grief because Steven is away from the little person who holds his heart enthralled and who has given his life meaning. Losing weight is a good idea but he has nothing tangible to grab onto with that because it is totally alien to him. I wish both of those men well.
