As you’ve been reading this blog, you know that I embarked on a weight loss journey last year that has seen me lose weight and I am continuing it in 2013 as well.
So I was interested (because I’m a reality tv junkie too!) to see this season’s series of The Biggest Loser.
And, when I heard Jillian Michaels was back, I was excited to see her!
Then, as I watched the show, I realized something I’d forgotten about Jillian Michaels.
She scares the living CRAP out of me!
The word intense is an understatement with that woman!
And (don’t read this if you haven’t seen the show yet), she scared one girl so much that she went home!
I’ve been thinking about joining a boot camp program at my local gym but now I’m having second thoughts….OMG – if they are anything like Jillian I’d be scared witless!
It will be interesting to see how Jillian’s “training through fear” approach works with this year’s contestants.
And the best part of this season? The fact that all of the trainers are working with 3 teens who are obese. The Biggest Loser says that they want to encourage children to be active and avoid obesity. My response? YES YES YES!
I wish I had someone to help me when I was a teen. Though I’ll never know, I think if I’d had that type of support in my teens I would have avoided years of pain and heartache!
So I’m excited to see how these teens do as they work their program off the ranch and come back to participate throughout the season (and, thankfully, none of them are going to be voted off!).
