Welcome to 3FC!
I'm a big fan of the show, too! Bob's my man! Jillian and Kim make me CRAZY! I need a kinder and gentler approach like Bob uses. He works everyone hard, but he really gets it about the emotional side of things!
Kim, I felt ,really misread her team. Remember the episode where she was all over them and all they really needed was to TALK about their feelings? She really missed the mark, I think, and had to TRY to make up for lost ground for the rest of the season!
Jillian is a tough girl who has had a past. Her DVDs aren't as tough as she lets them on to be. I think she has many resolved issues in her life! I recently watched a Tyra show where Tyra had several diet gurus on. The Fat Smash Diet guy was the best with the greatest amount of weight lost in his team. He used a "Bob" approach of really BEING THERE for his team and HEARING them instead of just talking AT them. Jillian's team fell flat on their faces, and one girl outright QUIT! Jillian wasn't even calling her team BY THEIR NAMES and hadn't met with them. She wanted them to contact her BY E-MAIL! Come on! What's THAT about?
I wouldn't have gotten along with Jillian, and I probably would have knocked Kim on her a$$ when she would come at me like she did those people!
I often wonder, though, about the HUGE weight losses on the show. Are they actually saying that in ONE WEEK a person can LOSE 12-20 POUNDS of FAT? I often wonder about the pounds. I also wonder about the intense exercise on bodies that have spent whole DAYS on the couch eating Doritos!!!
Anyway, I have watched all the shows from all the seasons and really love watching. I've even gotten my 95-year-old mom watching the show!
What are YOUR thoughts on the trainers, the participants, and their weight loss techniques?
Oh, and didn't it look like old Matt was gaining much of his weight BACK?!!!
