Is this going to be over yet? Is this coming week the finale?
This season seems to have gone on forever, or at least 10 months.
If so, I hope they bring back some of the former contestants. I always like to see the ones who have kept the weight off & have really changed their lifestyle even after the game is done. Those are the ones who are an inspiration.

You know I used to like biggest loser, but for me it's actually de-motivating if you're actually on a diet. I'm 180 now and 5 10' so not horrible but trying to go back to 165 is pretty difficult. I loose like a pound a week doing p90x and just took my first coke in 6 weeks (it was a special coke, imported from mexico so it was real sugar no HFCS). I'm not saying I want to drop 5lbs in a week like they do, i know it's all "fluff" water weight and beyond extreme dieting/ starvation and 5 hr a day workouts. It's just de-motivating watching the process, i mean really do they need ppl screaming into their face? (obviously they do, it's how they got that way) Just sharing, and I really miss chocolate (my fiancee works for Mars and I have literally 50lbs of chocolate in the living room).
This show is just so tiring to watch. I hope I don't watch this show next season.
And by the way, kudos for you for being able to keep that 50 lbs. of chocolate in the living room and not in you! I don't think I'd be able to! I have to say if your fiance knows you want to lose weight he's sabotaging you a bit by bringing it over.
I think, in part, for some people the de-motivation may come from the view that it's not possible to lose a great deal of weight unless you have the advantages the TBL contestants have, or that it takes that kind of excessive gym time. While that's not true, I believe that watching TBL methods can be daunting for those needing to lose significant weight. The training methods, well, it's not for everyone, but whether it's because of them or in spite of them, it's the results that keep the applications pouring into NBC.
After years of watching the show, I actually found some motivation last season. I wasn't looking to lose weight, but when I was watching Ada run the marathon, I thought that if a girl who was morbidly obese just six months ago could run a marathon, I bloody well could do it too. I didn't run a full marathon but I completed a half last week.
The trainers - I mean Bob & Jillian - have been successful in creating great athletes out of several contestants. Those kind of results impress me more than anything. That's a lifelong gift that's worth more than any cash prize.

I'm not sure if this is related to the current topic but a couple of seasons ago, I realized that I usually watched the Biggest Loser while eating M&Ms. I am not over weight so maybe I just don't think all those healthy eating tips apply to me. Or maybe I shouldn't fast forward through that part.
Same here--nachos, pizza, cookies ... pretty sure I've eaten all of that (not at once!) while watching this show.
But I think this show has kind of motivated me ... I don't need to lose any weight, but I'd like to build some more muscle.
