“Stand up and Finish what you Started.” ~Bob Harper
That is exactly what the winner of last night’s Biggest Loser did…he finished what he started! Congratulations to Michael, Season 9 winner of the Biggest Loser! But, Michael really won much more than the title of the Biggest Loser and 250k, he won his life back.

Michael – Now
My other favorite contestant, besides O’Neal (seeing him walk up the stairs on the Biggest Loser without help was so moving), was Daris. I think everyone was pulling for Daris. I am guessing that although he didn’t win the big prize, he is not disappointed because his journey is just about to begin.

Many of the contestants at the finale looked beautiful (others looked good on the outside, but you could see that they still needed mork work on the inside). It was an inspirational season to be sure, e.g., I found it moving that in the midst of weighing in for the finale Michael was still talking about having finished a marathon (it meant so much to him), and I appreciated the contestants for less game playing and more pulling together and for each other.
And, let’s not forget Bob & Jillian who work miracles each and every season. Bob & Jillian you both rock!
