Biggest Loser welcomes back some old favorites :0)

Wow, tonight Biggest Loser had both Ali and Michelle ( from season 5 & 6) back on while Alison was on maternity leave. For those that don't know- this actually happened back in January.
It was nice seeing both Ali and Michelle back on the Biggest Loser ranch and to see how well they are both doing. Though it would have been nice to have them talk a bit about what is going on in their life and how much things have changed for them since they won Biggest Loser.
It was also nice to see Nicole, Estella and David back so that we could see how well they have been doing at home.
Estella lost an amzing 45 pounds at home and looked fantastic! :0)
David had lost 46 pounds and talked a good line but after the way that he threw his chance at being on the show when Dan had worked so hard to bring him back on, well- I just didn't believe it.
Maybe he HAD realized that he needed to be on the Biggest Loser ranch in order to learn how to lose weight and get better eating havits but it seemed too little too late after how he stabbed Dan in the back.
Anyway, the Nicole got up on the scale and I was FLOORED! She lost a whopping 87 POUNDS!!!
The challenge this week seemed like it would be very difficult. Like Mike, balance is not my strong suit :0)
I don't know how you all feel but I must be honest and say that when this season started there was something about Filipe and Sione that didn't sit right with me. But, after they had been on the Biggest Loser ranch for a while I did get to like them...
that is up until Filipe had his childish hissyfit.
It just seems like since then that the blue team has been having an attitude and getting cocky.
Are we the only ones that see this and feel this way?
So when Filipe got cocky (again) and wanted extra ropes removed I thought it funny that he was one of the next to fall in the pool.
Who could believe that weigh in??? WOW! Look at all the weight gained instead of lost. Mike did a GREAT job though didn't he? and Tara finally hit her 100 pound weight loss goal :0))

I was glad that Ron is ok and will be fine but I felt bad for him in that he was pumped full of saline solution and gained 3 pounds. I didn't feel that his weight should have even counted because of that and I think that Mike said it best when he defended his dad.
I felt very bad for Nicole to have her hopes dashed by going home right away but I think that she was right that her short time back on the Biggest Loser ranch was what she needed to really SEE how much she has changed.
Now, for a bit of bad news:
I don't know if any of you have heard? But Jillian Michaels is considering leaving the Biggest Loser show. She has been very unhappy with certain contestants of the Biggest Loser and their attitudes and I think too that switching trainers was hard not only on the contestants but for the trainers themselves back a few weeks ago. Part of what led up to Filipe going off on Jillian and then walking off before she could defend herself.
Jillian is in talks with NBC and we are hoping that she will decide to stay on the Biggest Loser. This could be her last season on Biggest Loser but we sincerely hope that it won't be.
We like the way that Jillian pushes her people and yet you know that she does it because she cares. She might seem overboard to some but she DOES get results!
Well, we'll be adding new polls to the right. Please vote them, leave some comments and let us know what you thought about Biggest Loser tonight and if you would like to see Jillian stay?
So sorry about not keeping up with My Biggest Loser Blog lately but since the death of my cousin our life has been chaos. Another relative had to have surgery and we have been helping him. His son was coming home one night recently and someone shot him in the face. He has been in the hospital unable to even talk.
It seems that when it rains it pours and it has been pouring here.
Hopefully things will start to look up soon

Don't know if you've heard but it looks like Jillian might not stick around for season 8.
