Back to the land of the living

Still congested in my chest and coughing but boy do I feel better. Good enough that I'm going to go to belly dance this week. My first "exercise" session in over a week! I still have a day of prescription pills to take. You know, I think it was the rescue inhaler that was making me nauseous.

Still on program - with 4 flex to last me 2 days. It drives me friggen crazy that I can be SO sick and still not lose my appetite. I have been starving and now that I'm feeling well enough to keep my food down.... I've been eating what feels like a lot.

OK peeps. I need to just go on the record regarding the Red Team on Biggest Loser. If you haven't watched then stop reading... NOW!

She is a liar, liar, liar. OMG. Does she really think that we are all so stupid? I hate liars. To my mind, if she wanted to keep up with the lie, she should have thrown her weigh in's until she didn't have immunity. But it was so obvious. I don't normally care for Jillian as I don't like the yelling (I find it actually quite abusive) BUT I was loving her on this week's show. I loved that she didn't back down.

And that Green team. OMG. I have never, ever seen two more angry women in my life. That daughter - when she was sitting on camera all hunched over, eyes half closed - completely shut down. It is inconceivable to me that she is even married. They both need some serious therapy. And that mom telling her not to cry. I just wanted to slap her!

Well, time for breakfast. Have a healthy day!


  1. Glad you're feeling better. Maybe you'll be less hungry now that you're on the mend!

    I am one week behind for TBL because I have to watch it on (can't get TBL in Russia...yet!). But I did see a written update about this week's show. That red team is brewing up some big trouble for themselves! And the daughter on the green team? Good riddance! If she went on a show like that, but was unwilling to accept help or participate, then she isn't The Biggest Loser. She's just a loser.

  2. Welcome back to the land of the living!! So glad you are feeling better. :-)

    I am 100 percent in total agreement with you on the red team and the green team. Te red lady needs to just come clean. AMAZING that she lost 11 lbs this week - AMAZING. There is always one or 2 teams that have to be awful each season. Def game players.

    And the green team-- WOW. They need help. I agreed with Jill-- her daughter is going to grow up with bad habits if they don't change their lifestyle right now. That does not mean she is a bad mother... it just meas that she makes bad food and excercise choices (like 1000's of other mothers out there!)!!!

  3. Glad to hear you're starting to feel better.

    As for BL, I completely agree with everything you said.

  4. I agree too! The green team just seems so angry and closed off all the time - with their arms crossed. I hope they have a breakthrough...and I can't tell if the husband on the Red team is just clueless or if he is in on it too. She isn't as evil as Vicky was, but she definately isn't honest.

    Glad you are feeling better...and thanks for sticking with me through my absence!

    Glad you're starting to feel better. You were really sick! Eat what your body needs while you're recovering...

    Your post has reinforced that I've made the right decision in not following BL this season. It's just getting too over the top.

  6. I totally agree with you about the red team & green team!! Overall, I'm really not enjoying The Biggest Loser as much as usual this season! It's too annoying.

  7. I hope you feel better soon!

    BL I completely agree and I wish they would have sent the mom home...'stop crying' all the time, seriously its so wrong.
    And the red team, she said in the first week that she will through the WI, then she denied it. What's the big deal in saying yes I threw the weigh in to save my butt another week. We know its a game but I hate liars too.
