My comment on Smock's "Biggest Loser" post

| | Comments (2)

For some reason, Movable Type is not letting me comment on that entry! I've tried four times now. Bleah. My comments will probably show up out of the ether at some future point, and I'll have to delete 'em.

Anyhoo, here's my comment to the Smock:

I love this show, though I admit I expected, in the beginning, to be furious with it for exploiting fat people for laughs.

It completely won me over. Yes, it's about weight loss, and bunches of it, but it morphs into something more--an empowerment. Before long you'll be hearing people say, "I never thought I could do XYZ, but I DID IT!" The pride and power that comes from that is fabulous.

It's my 2nd favorite reality show (after The Amazing Race). Yep, even ahead of Top Chef or Project Runway.

And here's how you and I are different: I would pick Jillian as my trainer in a heartbeat over vein-pulsing-in-his-forehead Bob. Yeah, she talks a mean game. But she also tells people, "You are so worth this. You can do it. You can be what you want to be." But she doesn't take cr*p. Nope, not my Jillian.

Look, those of us who are trying to get our act together with food and exercise are full of excuses why we can't eat like this or exercise like that. Oh really? We CAN'T? Or we WON'T?

I know which one it is for me.


My comment that wouldn't post was a rave for Allie, winner from 2 season's ago, I think? Have ya'll seen her in the commercials? She didn't just lose the weight, she is RIPPED. Incredible!

I hate those sites that reject comments. Feedbacks are very important for author’s realization. There are times that some readers would like to share their thought about the articles they’ve read and so on. In relation to public awareness, Nowadays the economic stimulus package was fraught with too much controversy. It is said to be that the cost for the economic stimulus package just passed was about $787 billion. While, few months ago, the plan that (TARP) was just a few billion less. These cash advance loans, as well short-term payday cash or short-term loans which have never been seen before, were intended to do things like stem unemployment. White House officials are predicting that it will start to do some progressive just before we know it. The prediction is that the stimulus will save about 3.5 million jobs, but since that many have been lost, it seems foolhardy to barely break even on the $787 billion installment loans of the economic stimulus package. The projection regarding number of jobs saved or created applies through the end of 2010. So don’t go out and get cash advance loans thinking you’ll get another job before it’s time to pay it back. This is going to take a while. The report says that 1.5 million jobs will be created or saved by the end of this year. Still, let’s keep in mind to save more and spend less.
