Ok, $10 per person per day is an extremely generous food budget. That's way more than what I spend on my family!

That means we would get $280 for the week. Man we'd be eating like kings that week! We are typically very healthy eaters (as in actually have a fruit and veggie at every lunch and dinner) although we do have some snacks around the house, but we don't even spend half that much. Although I have been told it's kind of a regional thing, I think we have a store that is very inexpensive in our area.

Aww, I really like Lisa, so sad she gone.

I wonder if Jillian and Dolvet don't get along since she never works out with his team always Bob

Every season that started in January has always had the Finale in early May. Ally announced this week that the finale for this season was on March 18th! That's only 12 shows if there are no weeks off..way too short.

I also feel something has changed in Jillian this year. She was always hard and demanding but this time she's been nasty. I've never heard her throw anyone out of "her gym" or tell them to go home as she will in the next show.

At this point. I don't know what to think.
Season 1 & 2 were 12 week seasons also.

What kind of dream world do they live in if they think $280 a WEEK to feed a family of four is being on a budget.

I think the $10 a day was actually a good number. DS16 and I were talking about it today and we figure $10 a day is what the average may be on 2 fast food meals or 1 meal out. Part of the thing the BL is trying to talk about is people use the excuse that eating healthy is expensive, but people don't have a problem dropping $5 a person on one meal at McDonalds.

And going backwards, Jillian is tough, she doesn't pull any punches. But I think she is "mean" for a few reasons. One is she is not going to baby anyone, babying and staying within their comfort zone is what got people where they were in the first place. Plus she wants to weed out the people who don't really want to be there. Some are going to give up, some are going to get pissed and fight back. Some are going to throw in the towel when she says they are weak, etc. Some are going to say, "I'll show you" and then they do.

ITA and I really like Jillian. (I do like Bob & Dolvett too! ) Jillian is tough when she needs to be tough, but she really has a heart of gold and genuinely cares about the contestants.

I have never watched this show up until about two weeks ago. I wanted to see the workout schedules so I could see what works best.

Anyway. I was watching an episode where they were having an obstacle relay course on a football field. It looked like so much fun to me. I think I would love being in the biggest loser- just to do the challenges. Instead I have to create them myself. This is why I like team sports. Mutual accountability.

It all seems quite hard on the show. Wish I would have watched years ago.

I have several of Jillian's workout DVD's. They kick your butt. And the motivational things she says in the show are similar to how she trains. She's a drill sergeant in them and expects you to workout hard to get the most of your workout. I notice so many times on the show there are Jillian-isms that she repeats to motivate as a trainer ("Don't phone it in!"). That's just her style. And when she sees someone not working as hard as they could be, she wants you to want it even more. Love Jillian Michaels!

That's a great point! FTR, I think that we spend about $10 per person per day in our house. I guess that means we eat like kings, LOL. I eat meat every day and we eat nice steaks or fresh fish on the weekends and I hate leftovers. My DD is also a vegetarian so I end up cooking two meals per night most nights.

Did anyone notice the pants the women were wearing in their workouts? They seemed very high waisted like maternity pants. I wonder if that is to support their bellies. They are different than the "weigh-in" pants.

Sorry to see Lisa go. I liked her better than Francelina. I do really like Jackson, though.

I love this show! I discovered it last year and am thinking of getting past season series to watch. Do you think that is weird? I was disappointed Lisa went home. I liked her and oddly enough I like the whiner lawyer though I don't know why. Jackson I can't take....But I hope the girl on the white team makes it! she seems so motivated....
