I read in my Entertainment Weekly Magazine that Season 8's Biggest Loser contestants were going to be bigger and have bigger issues than any other season's. This annoyed me. I hate when Jillian tries to act like a therapist and I usually fast forward through all the crying.
Last night's first episode had me in a teary mess. One of the contestants (who I promptly decided was my favorite) is named Abby and lost her whole family (husband, 5 and half year old daughter and 2 week old son) in a car accident. She believes she wasn't in that car for a reason and that she is meant to make a difference with her life, but first she needs to get healthy and strong to do so....how can you not love her already?
Abby said, after seeing her starting weight of 247 pounds: "It surprises me, but it doesn't define me. I choose to get out of bed every day, and now I choose to be here. And I'm going to be better." Seriously...what a fighter. I can't wait to root her on this season.
Anyway...the end of summer is always a little sad....but then your favorite TV shows start up again and you kind of forget about being sad.... Glee tonight!! Can't wait! I'm such a Gleek.
