Tuesday night rituals

AS of late, our Tuesday nights are dedicated to Biggest Loser's on NBC. What is my fascination in watching hopelessly fat people turn into svelte, sexy skinny minny's in 12 weeks? I'm not quite sure. Maybe I find hope in seeing them lose weight after killing themselves in the gym with Bob and Jillian mercilessly screaming at them.

I am glad to hear I'm not the only one addicted to that show. I was beginning to think it was all rigged since Joelle never seemed to get voted off. My faith was renewed last night when Mike & Ron were not voted off.

BTW - I was eating brownies and milk while watching.

Tell Wayne he and I can cry together as all the fat people, plead to stay on the show.
