OMG I am sooooooooooo stoked! I'm going to be watching all two hours of it tonight on the tredmill! I figured that was waaaaay more productive towards my weight loss goals than to sit on my butt on the couch and watch it, lol. I will absolutely be back here tonight after watching it to discuss!

Ever since I started watching the show, Jillian was my favorite. But since her recent 'diet pills' have been revealed, I'm not that in to her. But we shall see how things turn out!

OMG Abby! I love her, She totally made me cry my eyes out! She's my Favorite so far. What a horrible thing to happen and yet she is trying to be positive. I'm rooting for them all but she just touched my soul.

Diva! I totally agree!!! I just finished crying my eyeballs out, too. I think Abby is going to be a very special contestant this season.

Abby made me cry too! She's going to be a fan favorite. I like Rebecca too. I liked Traci at the start, but she's not been in the episode enough to get to know her.

I missed the first hour. I walked in when Shae said she was giving up and walked out. If she hadn't gone back in I would have been pissed. So many people wanted that opportunity, it's so not okay to waste it.

I cried my freaking eyes out the whole episode. Abby's story was heart wrenching, but she is so positive and so full of life. She really is inspirational.

OMG i spent most of the night crying my eyes out but the most upsetting to me was when tracy went down and had to be taken to the hospital i was crying my eyes out because i was on my weigh to being that person and i was crying cause i was sad for her and happy because i have lost 30 lbs and i am NEVER going back to being as heavy as i was which was 332 lbs and it really made me reaffirm what i am doing this for and now it is no longer IF i get to 140 lbs it is WHEN because i will make it!

sorry to ramble
looking forward to next weeks show

I am another crier.. lol within the first 10 min. A big Abbey fan here too as well as Coach Mo and Dan.. I liked Tracey too and am looking forward to seeing her next week! I like how they are being trained by both Jillian and Bob..I am excited for this season.. I think it is going to be intense. I was shocked at how aggressive the trainers were right out of the gates.. well not so much surprise frm Jillian but Bob was a tyrant tonight too.. lol i liked it! haha
I think this is going to be an amazing season.. I was so moved and motivated watching tonight...looking forward to watching next week.. PVR is preset for all new episodes just in case!! lol

It was a good show tonight and I too cried. Mostly at the beginning when they were telling their stories. Abbys story was heartbreaking and having to go through that would seem impossible. I also cried as it hit home that hey I too am taking on the challange and hope to go through the 12 weeks with a constant loss. I just really made me think about where I am and where I want to be.

Abby even made Jillian cry!! I bet Jillian will never be able to yell at her like she does the others...

I thought it was a great show...

Hi guys...

Diva...thank you 30 lbs is a lot and i feel so much better and have more energy now but i am excited to lose more cause my mom told me that i havent seen anything yet as far as energy goes its only gonna get better so im excited i am hoping to be 60 lbs down by xmas that is another one of my mini-goals.

Bigmid..i am looking forward to also losing weight along with them this is why i am so excited about this season because in previous seasons i was one of those people sitting on the couch eating chips and drinking pop..well i am not eating chips anymore but i still do have a diet pepsi once in a while so i am looking forward to seeing how much i am able to lose every week along with them!

Btw...anyone that is interested tonight on QVC at midnight Ali from season 5 is going to be on there talking about biggest loser products so im definately gonna check it out to see what they have i cant afford to buy anything but it will be good to see her i have her as a friend on my facebook page which is really cool and i also have max morelli mike from season 7's brother so i will stop rambling now

have a good night all
Heather
