Biggest Loser

I confess, I've gotten totally into The Biggest Loser. To be perfectly honest, I'm always kind of bored for the first hour and 50 minutes but I absolutely love the transformation moment. Dropping that kind of weight is phenomenal. I mean, some of them lose entire me's and I find that incredible.

So last night we had our community life group so I didn't watch it. This afternoon I wanted to relax on the couch, baby on lap, and fast forward through the episode on DVR. But, alas, I have a toddler. Usually he's somewhat interested in The Biggest Loser so I figured I'd give it a shot.

When he quickly lost interest the following conversation took place.

Garrett: I want a tookie.
Me: (pause) If I give you a cookie will you sit on the couch and watch Biggest Loser with me?

No sooner had it come out of my mouth that I realized there was not a single redeeming quality about that sentence. Maybe I can sign the kid up for some diabetes while I'm at it.


  1. Now that right there is funny. Thanks for the laugh.


  2. I had one of those laughs that comes out very embarassingly noisy when I read that. It's a good thing no one was around. Remaning anonymous...

  3. generally, if i'm around when the show airs i watch the last 20 min. i def. feel a different awareness of what i'm doing when i watch. once, i was eating ice cream and i couldn't even enjoy it because i was afraid jillian would somehow see me and say something fierce and make me cry.

  4. LOL!
    I love that show too. The story of the contestants are very inspiring. It's about time that the people realize that obesity is an issue we need to address.
