Biggest Loser Recap: The Black Team Joins the Game

The Biggest Loser, once again, was motivating and inspiring. It's always sad to see a player get voted off, but so the game goes. Lezlye, a Katrina Survivor, was sent home mostly due to not losing big numbers on the scale.

The Black team was revealed to the Blue and Red teams, and the Black team ended up with the greatest amount of pounds shed. I think a lesson is to be learned here is that you don't need a gym to still get a workout. The Black team had not stepped one foot in a gym, they worked out in the desert, doing things such as carrying sand bags up a sandy hill, yet they still lost the most weight. Sure, they had Jillian, but they still did it.

For me, this sort of reiterated that on those days when I absolutely do not feel like stepping foot in that gym, there are other ways I can still get a workout. Sometimes it may be even better because you don't limit yourself to the equipment in the confines of the gym, you have to force yourself to step outside the box.

I was so happy that the "katrina victim" was sent home, if i had to see her whine and make faces while working out again i was going to freak out!

Also, I think Lezlye got sent home because she had a horrible attitude. She acted better than a lot of people and she just irritated me. But I was glad to see she's continuing to lose weight! It's nice to see they don't just give up after getting kicked off!

I LOVE THIS SHOW! And true not everyone loses weight by going to the gym, but that's the way they structure this show and Hey, it works! They're big on trying to Teach them eating habits and such. I'm all about TEAM BLUE! I love Bob!!! Jerry ad Patty are my favorite contestants! I'm so inspired by their hard work! Yay for this show!

I was sad too when they were disappointed for only losing 2,3,4 lbs. That's still good! I would rather lose it slowly than real quick. I know it's all about the competition, but once the show is over you're back in the real world where losing 2 lbs is safer/more practical.

I've lost 40 lbs within 7 months and I've never set foot in a gym either. I jog/walk, do a pilates video at home and do strength training at home also. I also forgot to watch! ugh!

I've lost 92 lbs in the past year and have not set foot in a gym. I get my cardio by walking. I also use a couple different DVDs, 5lb weights, a Bosu, an excersise ball and resistance bands. I mix up, keep it interesting and never give up!

Again, I don't watch the show but why WOULD you need the gym for a work out? Maybe it's because I live in Colorado but the gym is my least favorite place to go.

I had never watched that show before until last night. It was interesting and you care for the contestants, but I was sad to see them beat themselves up after finding they don't lose as much weight as they want. But then again, the show is called "The Biggest Loser!"
