Hi All,
Just a quick check in. I've been at our Mt house with house guests all week - lots of fun and lots of skiing and other activities....

But I did want to point out that the folks on the Biggest Loser are starting at 300lb+. At that weight, 5 to 10 pounds per week is a very low percentage of their total body weight and therefore "relatively" easy to lose. At most or our weights, 5 to 10 pounds is a much greater % of our body and thus a much greater challenge to do in a week. In fact, it is reasonable to say that if any of you lost 5 pounds in a week, you are having a pretty serious health problem.

That being said the show has a lot of interesting and instructive elements. Not to mention some funny and very poignant moments.
