I know keeping a food journal is extremely important, but I also like how experts always say that it takes two weeks to learn a new habit. Well, I quit eating ice cream two years ago and it was really easy to start it up again this summer. I also ty to do some form of cardio 3 or 4 times a week and have been doing so for a very long time. Thing is anything can derail that habit and it can take me up to 2 weeks to get back to it.
Tonight's episode was really good. I'll admit, James had such a stubborn streak, I didn't think he'd last - he was pretty resistant. And the hernia had me worried! I always thought he was pretty good looking too, and seeing him at the finale - at the Super Bowl where my Packers won, was really thrilling. Good for him! At the end, when he said he wanted to help others out, I almost got teary-eyed!
I did watch the first weight it and thought it sad that even with losing 150lbs in 3 months James still looks huge as if that 150lbs hardly made a dent.
I am glad that Chris did mention that James was on a 2,000 calorie food plan and that since he normally eats around 6,000 calories that super obese people can lose remarkable amounts of weight in the first 90 day of a program. That explains why Chris wants to take total advantage of that fact.
I finally watched it last night and think out of all of the contestants so far James is the one who will keep this up. He still needs to loose at least 100lbs and hope he does it!
James, in terms of personality, seemed like such an angry man... or maybe that's a bad choice of words perhaps it's resentful or something. I dunno, it just came off as if he had a huge chip on his shoulder and I never could understand what was going on with that. He's got a long road ahead of him. I hope he continues to lose and is able to have the hernia surgery.

I was sitting across the room at my desk watching (long livingroom) & at the end there were 2 sets of small print shown, I think as kind of a follow up/epilogue. I wasn't close enough to read it.
Did anyone else catch that? If so, what did it say?
The first... I'm not sure of this... but I think it had to do with him paying it forward in some way. But I'm honestly not sure. Someone will chime in!!!
