Biggest Loser recap

Well, probably not so much a recap as my thoughts and opinions on the show. To start with, I was happy with the choice to vote the grey team off overall. I think Jerry on the yellow team would have much less success out on his own the Tom and LT did.

2. I think my favorite part of every show is at the end where they show the success so far of the team voted off. It's like a mini final each week!

3. I was so freaking pissed off at the orange? team. After grey team kept them they turned around and went completely against their word. Sooooooo not cool.

4. It's interesting to me how many of them are already wearing wraps/braces of some kind.

5. I don't know if I think it was awesome or scary to see Jerry on the treadmill with the oxygen hooked up to him. Awesome for him to be committed to getting healthy but super scary that it seems they are pushing him beyond what it healthy.

6. How do they do it? After a really kick ass workout I can barely walk the next day and those workouts only last 1-2 hours. These guys are coming from nothing and doing 6-8 hours of exercise per day and they walk normal and do it all over again the next day. Phenomenal!!

Anyone else have thoughts on the episode?

I was happy to see the gray team being successful at home and spreading that success to their family!

My thoughts:
1. all those tensor bandages - not good.
2. oxygen? yeah pretty scary.
3. the brown team - "what attitude" said looking like he is going to kill the guy
4. orange team - just b/c they were going to get voted off anyways does not mean...
5.loved how long Colleen lasted in the challenge!
6. loved how well the grey team ended up doing!

5: I don't think that having oxygen on is because he's being pushed too far. I go to a therapeutic gym, and I see cardio-pulmonary patients on the treadmills all the time, and yeah, there are loads of people on the bikes and treadmills on oxygen. I can see where people who don't see it every day can think it's extreme, but...

3: Orange Team-- they were out voted anyway, AND they had to think that the Yellow team would be there at next week's vote, and the Grey wouldn't. That and it's a game, and alliances have to be broken (albeit usually not so early in the game)

6: If I DON'T work out every day I stiffen up. I find if you kick butt then keep going back (and warm water therapy helps) you don't get too sore or stiff at all. Kinda like 'hair of the dog'.

I'm totally with you on the exercise thing. I've always wondered how they do it. How do they push past the pain. Sometimes I can do a one hour intense workout and the next day I have a hard time sitting. I can't imagine how they work out for so long, but also how they can do another 6-8 hours the next day. Absolutely amazing and inspiring.

I am loving the show so far--the yellow is my favorite and I am waiting on Heba to goooooo lol. But my least favorite is Alison Sweeney, I just find her to be soooo arrogant.
