Grrrrr

I LOVE the show the biggest loser! I think that it is inspiring people all around the globe to get up and get healthy! I get so caught up in the personalities and feelings of the contestants. In case you don't watch it.. this season it was couples losing weight together. Fathers and sons, cousins, moms and daughters.. At one point each couple had to choose who would stay on the biggest loser ranch and continue their progress and Who would have to go home and try to make it on their own. Of course when it came to a parent choosing... it's a no brainer, right? WHO would choose to stay and get healthy taking advantage of the greatest opportunity of their lives over their child having that dream come true... I will tell u who... HELEN! Just saying her name makes smoke come out of my nostrils! A 48 year old mom who lost over 100 lbs and is now in the finale. She is Very proud of her accomplishments as she should be. I just can't believe she can go home and look her unhealthy, over weight daughter in the eyes. It was so obvious to me that poor Shannon didn't have the courage to speak up and put her own needs before her moms. She relented and chose to go home. When Helen went home a skinny, healthier her.. there was Shannon still obese and looking unhappy. Even at the last challenge, don't you think that it was unusual that Shannon wasn't there... routing for her Mom? It could be an indicator that she is harboring some serious, yet valid resentments. (Can u believe how upset a tv show has me?) I kept waiting for Helen to say something to Shannon! NO! It was ALL about HER and it totally sickens me! I can't wait to see the finale on tuesday night... Helen..You are already THE biggest loser in my book, so I pray Someone else wins the 1/4 mill!

she lost more than just weight. she lost a part of her daughter's love and respect.

I'm wondering if there is more to the story. Possibly Shannon asked not to be mentioned. Maybe Shannon didn't have the gumption to do the work...plus the mom may live longer now! Can you even begin to fathom how hard she worked to get that weight off....Remember the weight isn't about the fat...it's always something emotionally way deeper.....

I hope Mike wins anyway!! He deserves it, because he is so sweet and he has some good Karma coming his way. I feel sick for his younger brother who is amongst the brood much thinner than him.

I think Helen could easily gain all the weight back because she is always serving everyone else.... I bet this is the first time in a long time where she came first....I just bet....
