So Long, Shay--Sorry You're Not The Biggest Loser

I like watching "The Biggest Loser." It's my favorite show right now because I like seeing these people succeed in their weight loss journey to get healthy and enjoy living again. Last Tuesday though I was sorry to see Shay voted off. I do not understand why the others think she can do this on her own.

Shay was the heaviest one there, well over 400 lbs.! In just nine weeks, she lost 100 lbs. and now holds the record for the woman to lose that much weight in the shortest time. Tuesday she lost 17 lbs. in one week! Clearly she worked hard and even losing the 100 lbs. only brought her down to well over 300 lbs. which was the starting weight for many on the show. Obviously, she still has a long way to go and definitely should be there.

I felt bad that she had to leave when she was finally making great progress and has so much more work to do yet. Jillian, one of the trainers, felt bad for her too and really wanted her to stay. I wish Shay the best and hope she can stick with it.

Do you watch this show? What do you think about this?

I was a little sorry (and surprised) that she got voted out, too. I guess they thought she was the bigger threat since it's based on percentage of weight loss.

I don't normally watch this show. But, I have been sort of following along lately and yes, I was sad as well to see that she was the one that was leaving.

I saw a story about Shay on the news tonite. She's lost a gazillion pounds and still weights over 300 lbs. I hope she keeps up the good work!

I was sorry to see Shay go too. I saw her doing an interview recently and she weighed 320 lbs so she's down 156 lbs which is fabulous!

Only watch the show if I happen to sit down & it's on - but it so motivating that's for sure. Thanks for stopping by my blog today & helping make my day in the SITS spotlight a great one!

I missed part of the show and I was totally bummed when I learned she had been booted off. I saw her on Jay Leno though and she looks amazing!

I was also sad to see Rebecca go last night but when they showed what she looks like today, she looks awesome!!

I used to watch it but haven't in years. I hope she continues on her journey. It's a real struggle day to day and then to keep it off is even harder.
