We've always been huge fans of the Biggest Loser, probably because we have weight issues. I think I've mentioned before that neither of us come from skinny genes. I've managed to do okay keeping my weight somewhat under control - not always where I'd like to be! Well, except when I'm pregnant. I gained 50lbs with both Bailey and Maverick! LT lost almost 100 lbs in the couple of years before we got married and has managed to keep most of it off for about 6 years now. Mandatory PT helps his efforts for sure!
If you watched the Biggest Loser last night and saw Amy P's post ranch, back in Greenville, SC update, you heard her say she went from being a size 20 to currently being a size 8! Was I the only woman in the world who screamed at her TV, "There's NO WAY she's wearing a size 8!"??? I know the camera adds 10 lbs, but there's just no way her body fit in a size 8! I've been a size 8 and I weighed 135 lbs and an 8 was still a stretch, literally, for me. I'm sure she's had to invest in Spanx to help deal with some of her excess skin. I really do applaud her weight loss because I know it's a very hard thing to do, but let's be honest with the viewers about sizes and weight!
Biggest Loser isn't the only show that I think stretches the truth about sizes and weight. Watch television on a Saturday morning and you'll see infomercial after infomercial for workout videos, diet supplements, etc where they show before and after pictures that are not true representatives of the numbers they're displaying. I guess you can say you wear whatever size you want if you can get it to zip once, but that doesn't mean it fits, flatters or is something you should wear in public! Those who fall into that category need to be reported to Stacy and Clinton on What Not To Wear.
