The Biggest Loser

Want to talk about motivation? Watch this show tonight. This is the time of year when many people make resolutions to eat better, lose weight, go to the gym more, etc. If you want weekly motivation, tune in. Some of the people on this show have just basically given up - no self esteem or self respect. Since those things are lacking, they have given up on having a healthy life style. Others have just let the good habits fall away due to personal issues, having children, job stress or what have you.

It really is a powerful experience to watch the contestants week after week as they get stronger and fitter. Now, granted, they are away from everything and all they have to do is concentrate on being healthy and working out and they have a trainer there to push them every step of the way. I would love to go on this show. If I had weeks of time at my disposal and could afford to not work, I would probably apply. I'd want Jillian to be my trainer. She is hard core. She yells and screams and pushes. Oh to have Jillian Michaels as my personal trainer.

There are few reality shows that are "must see" for me. The Amazing Race is one and The Biggest Loser is the other. I think it's because while the contestants do compete for prizes, they always walk away with more than that. Whether it's a better understanding of how the rest of the world lives and how to survive in a strange land or it's a new appreciation for a new lifestyle that makes you a stronger, better person, the journey is just as exciting as the destination.

The Biggest Loser Season 7 premieres at 8pm on NBC.
