Cheesily corny, but very inspiring...

I am a bit embarrassed to admit this, but hey, what the hell........

I am addicted to The Biggest Loser.

I have not watched previous seasons of this show. I would like to think of myself as an intellectual snob when it comes to television.

But who am I kidding, really?

Survivor, The Amazing Race, Restaurant Rules, Idol, So You Think You Can Dance........I love them all!

I am really a reality TV addict.

So this year when the quality Network Ten started advertising The Biggest Loser, I thought I'd give it a whirl, particularly as it aligns so wonderfully with my current journey of being a big loser myself........ but I missed the first few episodes.......

Today I went onto the Biggest Loser Website and realised that they had "Catch Up TV" which means you can view all episodes in full online, so I pulled my exercise bike in front of the computer, and watched a good hours worth of trashy TV, and pedalled away! Multi-tasking indeed!

It was really interesting to see all of the contestants and see how miserable they were with their bodies and to hear their stories and their reasons for wanting to shed weight and gain back their lives.

Cheesy and corny reality TV in may be, BUT it is definitely very inspiring for me right now.


  1. Oh I am so an addict too Luce! I too have not watched the previous seasons, but this one is a regular view for me. It gets me through my gym workouts....if those people in that physical shape can do what they do in the gym, then surely I can too! I don't expect to lose 12kg a week like they do....but it is a little motivating all the same.

  2. Hi Its electrongirl from the Weightloss forum!

    I love Biggest Loser too!! Although this year is kind of disappointing.


I am a comment addict. Thank you so much for your words...xx
