I'm unbelievably happy that Vicki almost fell on the stage - hilarious.

I am a huge fan of Michelle. Although we have not watched last nights show yet I knew she won when I logged on this morning and it was on the front of my homepage.

Once again they all did GREAT.

Just for the record -
LT was 342 when he went home (week 3), 270 at the finale. He lost a total of 87 pounds.

Tom was 287 when he went home, 236 at the finale. He lost a total of 78 pounds.

I'm jes saying...NOTHING to sneeze at, people. Given they might not have gotten as far as say Stacey who was only there a week and lost 65 pounds...but hey, give them some credit. I think everyone here knows how freaking hard losing weight is.

There are nifty stats here

Yeah, I agree while it may not appear as though they worked as hard as the others, they did lose a lot of weight. And, we don't know how their life has been, things get crazy.

I was actually comparing their weights from their updates when they were eliminated to now. LT's update when he was eliminated said he lost 81 pounds, putting him at 276. He was 270 at the finale. Since his update he lost 6 pounds. That's why I didn't notice a difference.

Tom started out at 314, went home at 287, and his update had him at 249. At the finale he was 236. 13 pound difference.

I do respect the weight they lost at the ranch, especially Tom for getting off his meds--although I think LT wasn't above being a gameplayer himself.

S'all good, Ellie.

It's just so easy to forget how wacky these losses are for people to try to achieve IRL. It is my biggest annoyance with this show (and I'm a huge fan) that they always gloss over that these losses are manipulated and a "week" might not actually be 7 days and so on. It saddens me that people feel like a failure when they can't lose 9 pounds a week.

Jillian's radio show is much more realistic...

I have seen people IRL compare themselves that way too. I think it is in Michelle's blog on Ivillage- she says how they actually work out 6-7 hours a day on the show and they sleep most of the time because they are so exhausted. How many people can do that with their real life going on.

Wow, working out 6-7 hours a day?
Is that even healthy?

If so, I have enough spare time to do it. xD
I work at Blockbuster like 2-3 days a week, & I'm only enrolled in one college class ATM, until I get fully registered next quarter.
I could seriously work out a few hours a day.

Even if I had the time, I would not have the discipline to work out 6-7 hours a day. I would need Jillian or Bob there screaming at me to do it.

Wow, that quite a workout! I would love to do it if I had the time but real life gets in the way of 7 hour workouts. Still you gotta do what you can and it all counts in the end.

I don't think there anything inherently 'unhealthy' about working out 6-7 hours a day...but how fast is someone going to burn out trying to do that? And will they feel like a failure when they can't pull it off anymore?
IMHO - it's not about what you have time for right now, it's about what do you want to commit to for the rest of your life? Losing the weight is one thing...keeping it off is another.

It's not practical to work out that much a day in real life. I can work out maybe two hours at a time and I am exhausted. But I agree, with Bob or Jillian screaming at me, I'm sure I could push myself further after some crying.

also, i can't imagine what working out 6-7 hours a day would do to my appetite!! that's when the peer pressure of living at the ranch would come in handy. plus i wonder who does the grocery shopping for them - there probably isn't any (or not much) junk food at the ranch so the only temptation would be the challenges and portion sizes!

Well, they eat more obviously because they burn more. Don't know the exact numbers, but they definitely eat more than 1200 calories a day. They eat like every 3-4 hours easy.
And, Jillian and Bob handpick every food item in the house that shoppers go out and buy. The food conditions for the contestants are amazingly good.
