The Biggest Loser 2008

None of the armchair critic from me tonight. Rather them than me!! It astounds me totally that those trainers can get your average Mr and Ms anyone who has masqueraded for years as a well rounded ornament to do things like paraglide, climb rock faces, throw themselves from great heights into a choppy ocean. That really is thumbs ups and accolades to the trainers. Beating them around in the gym is one thing, haranguing them about nutrition is another…but to get the fatties to face those kinds of extreme challenges when they are just like you or me…that is some kind of a trainer. Shannan was bang on the button with Kirsten. It was about putting her out of her comfort zone and stopping her from feeling physically comfortable. It was about putting her in a wobbly state and then just letting her fly. Fly like an eagle, high above the universe. How can you fly like an eagle when you are surrounded by turkeys? Kirsten is major league. She is in a class of her own and Shannan could dream her dreams for her and get her to realise who she is. Chanel said you are not born a woman, you grow into one. Tonight , Kirsten came down from her great height and re emerged as a young, attractive , vital woman who was comfortable in her own skin. She wasn’t facing her fear. She was doing what Shannan said…opening her eyes to all her possibilities and beauty. Suddenly she could see who she was and what she was capable of. She was literally letting go of that dowdy, old looking plain Jane who was corseting herself in her fat. She was now an ex Olympian full of interesting and exciting possibilities. Major breakthrough stuff. Michelle did well with Cosi and Garry to get them to do what she had planned and just push themselves up the top and over the edge! Tomorrow it looks like Alison is going to be like the rest of us, Sam is going to get the big adrenalin hit he needs and Michelle is finally going to learn to lighten up and be free. Not so sure about Jillian. She looked like she was having kittens in the trailer…now we know how to put the wind up her!!!!
