The Biggest Loser
When the show first aired back in 2004 I refused to watch it. I couldn't watch a show that was calling fat people losers. I guess I shouldn't have judged the book by the cover. Then when season 2 started in 2005 friends convinced me that I should check it out, that they think I might like it.
They were right I immediately fell in love with the show. I was at the time 330 pounds and the show brought me hope that I could get off the sofa, change my eating habits and really change my life. I've mentioned it before that it was specifically the episode that Pete Thomas was voted off that got me off the sofa. I credit that episode (and you Pete) with giving me the motivation to lose 113 pounds (I have put a few back on - but I am working on that).
But in all the seasons I have watched, and no I have not missed an episode since I started watching, tonight's episode was the best episode I think I have ever seen. Note, that I didn't say I agreed with everything on the show tonight. But as a whole I thought the show was great.
