Not as easy as it looks


Tonight's another Biggest Loser night. It's the continuation of last week where we find out if nobody is going home or if two people are leaving the ranch.

One of my favorite parts of any Biggest Loser episode is where they show the ousted player and how great they look now. Generally, people kicked off the ranch go on to lose lots of weight at home as well.

This is where "reality" and "TV" part. It's not that easy losing tons of weight at home. Yes, it can be done. Yes, it's about making the right -- and sometimes tough -- choices. Yes, it's about calories in vs. calories out. And can be HARD!

We're in our final week of the 4th Frog's Biggest Loser contest. We started with 14 people. We're finishing with five. Sometimes life gets in the way. You know, vacations, work stress, urgent cravings, Girl Scout cookie season...

There have been no amazing losses, but it's been good to be accountable to someone. Our combined total of weight loss so far probably equals about what one player could lose on the Biggest Loser in one week. But the way I figure it, the only way to really lose this fun challenge would be to not try at all.

What I liked about the people who went home was they hooked up with a gym and had a trainer work with them. Good call and the gym got some free sublicity!

And I'm guessing Mike lost enough weight so no one would have to go home.
