Motivated by Losers

The only tv show that I have faithfully watched this year has been The Biggest Loser. I used to think it was a really bad concept for a show, and I don't know what made me sit through the first episode, but since then I've been hooked. Quite ironic that one of my favorite lazy pasttimes has become watching other people work out.

The show is really motivating, though. I faithfully watch for 2 hours and think, "I could do, wait, I SHOULD do that." Bryan will watch with me and comment on the stupidity of the challenges or the annoying qualities of the host (Alison has a really awful way of narrating the challenges that grates on us). But, the motivational aura of the show gets to him, too. We finished last night's 2 hour lazy fest with a discussion of possibly buying a treadmill. Now, when that will happen, I don't know....maybe we'll research treadmills next Tuesday night during the exciting reunion episode!


  1. We LOVE the show! It's the only show we all agree upon and watch as a family usually. Well, and the only night we're usually home. Megan usually does jumping jacks and sit ups during the show!

  2. Oh, I forgot to tell you that you have another "Flat Stanley/Megan" coming your way! :) Alex bragged you up so you were her first pick!
