    Am just starting to watch the tape...not too crazy about Allie's dress I have to say. Nice color but there seems to be too much cloth on top. I guess the new song is ok, but I kind of liked the old one, the what have you done lately one.

All the arguments about how someone's own personal philosophy is the only way (for diet & exercise) is a big part of what scares people needing to make a lifestyle change, IMO. TBL espouses the most basic method - burn more calories than you take in. You can take it or leave it but to mock what clearly works for at least some is like saying a cancer patient shouldn't consider chemotherapy because your aunt's friend's husband tried it & he died anyway. It blows my mind. Succeed, but do it in the manner I approve of or it must be wrong. As for Debbie, I think it was clear TBL wasn't a good experience for her. For someone who must have spent considerable time & trouble to be on the show, she doesn't seem that invested in changing. That is her choice & I hope whatever path she chooses works for her.
    I think Debbie might have a major obstacle in her life that she hasn't dealt with... which is why she wasn't able to embrace the Biggest Loser experience. I think she wanted to go home to her favorite food.

    Yes, that's right, she still gets her period regularly, even now that she is almost 45. Judging from her mother who became menopausal in her 50's, she should be good for several years. It's not a guarantee, of course, but it is possible. She has always had a good belly tone. On the other hand, I have another friend who has never seen a day of excess fat in her life, and who has never had kids either. Yet, her belly has sagging skin which she can minimize if she takes Pilates and Extreme Abdominal Torturous Exercise classes. If she stops, it goes back to sagging skin. It's a total mystery to me...

    Finally finished the tape....John seemed in a daze or something, kind of sober. You could see him apologizing to Dovett during the confetti period. Debbie and John had a long hug. I guess even though she left early, as oldsters they'd bonded.
    So Jennifer, the at home winner, actually lost a half a percentage point more than Ramon, the 3rd place finisher. Ramon lost 2/10s of a percentage point more than Patrick though. Jennifer should be grateful she went home. John was still 5 percentage points ahead of his nearest competitor, nearly as far ahead as he was at the last weigh in.
    John's wife doesn't look as though she even got her hair done before the show....looks kind of exhausted. I hope he really does make it up to her now. At least he knows he owes her---if they split she's got it on tape! Hope the money and the "fame" give them a 2nd chance, a house, and some relief for his wife from the childcare.

    I would bet that Ramon wanted to propose but Jessica told him not too.

    Smart girl. If she had said anything but yes he probably would have made some grand gesture and end up bleeding all over the stage.

    I have created a new spreadsheet for season 13. The only thing I can't find are their heights. I can't believe it starts in two weeks.

    Try The Biggest Loser: No Excuses - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia they will eventually have the heights.
