The familiar parable was the theme of the Biggest Loser last night as the underdogs, being trained by Bob and Jillian, took on the team of what looks like champions, albeit overweight ones (think Rulon), being trained by the “unknown” trainers. It made for an fun and and exciting show.
The underdogs showed heart, if not a lot of brains when it came to their challenge, and in the end they prevailed. Biggest Loser did a great job of creating healthy competition between the two teams. Jimmy and I found ourselves really rooting for Arthur and Jesse to bring their team the victory at the final weigh-in. And, you know what, they did!
I like that story.
My favorite quotes from last night:
I got big dreams for you. ~Bob to Arthur
We ARE going to do this, but we have to do it on our own. ~Green team daughter to her dad
We’re not underdogs anymore. What kind of dogs are we? We’re top dogs. Okay, then, top dogs signing off. ~Purple team sisters to each other
I highly recommend this season’s Biggest Loser if you are looking for some inspiration. Whether or not you have a few pounds to shed, there is a lot to the life stories of this season’s contestants, and I think we may all learn a thing or two by watching.
Have a beautiful Wednesday,
