OK, I don't watch this show on any kind of regular or non-regular basis...but I was just reading about the first female winner of NBC's "Biggest Loser". She lost something like 122 pounds .... which was about 47% of her body weight.
Yes, that's great. And it's inspiring. Right? Sure. Yay for her. She lost a whole LOT of weight.
But I'm sorry...there is nothing realistic about this reality show. The contestants get personal trainers. They spend their days working out. Oh, and I mean days literally. I just read that they work out between FOUR AND SIX HOURS per day!
Yeah, I could drop a ton of weight (not literally, mind you -- I'd like to lose about 30 or so) if I could work out 6 hours a day too. But I can't. I work. I have two kids. I have no time. I'm lucky if I find 30 minutes a day to do something for just ME.
So yes, add me to the list of people who think the show is unrealistic.
You want a real reality show? Then find a group of moms (working, stay at home, whatever!) who are struggling to lose their baby weight and can't find the time/energy/willpower to keep trying. THAT would be reality for me. And I'd be the first person to sign up for that show.
