All I do is Win and Biggest Loser recap

First of all…

There was the winner of the Biggest Loser last night and the finale - (spoiler alert ahead)

I am usually not such a big fan of the finale - I'm not sure why, it's almost like that feeling I get after a big race -- I guess I enjoy the journey so much that the "finish line/finale" of the show leaves me feeling a little wistful.  Of course, immediately scheduling another race -- or in the case of BL -- the promise of the next season on the horizon picks me right up.

They promoted the next season of BL last night. It's slated to begin in January and looks like it's gonna be another interesting journey.

But back to last night.

I stole borrowed this pic from Dolvett's FB page - it's awesome

The contestants all looked amazing.  While I fell in love with Ramone last night - he was funny, inspiring, charming and sincere (and was sorta rooting for him) -- I was also blown away with Antone's transformation and wouldn't have minded seeing him win either but the top prize went to AZ native, John who shed enough weight to beat both his opponents.  His next goal is to run the LA Marathon. I was happy for him, his hard work and drive led him to success and what other lesson could you want from BL?

I was also so happy for Jennifer who won the at-home competition and looked stunning.


And speaking about winning -- guess who else is a winner? ME! I am a winner.  I usually don't win anything but in the last few weeks, I've been making up for a lifetime of unwinning entries, lottery tickets, raffles and whatever else. Recently, I won an iFitness belt from Racing It Off, and a great tee shirt and HoneyMilk from Cook, Train, Eat, Race.  Go me!

And now this - 

I was catching up with my blog reading and headed over to Life As a Running Mom to read her "Almost Wordless Wednesday" post.  Well, I was downright speechless to find my name in a pretty rainbow:

So I'm very excited to give this stuff a shot!

Also, go check out Erica's blog it's great.

I'm feeling like a winner.  :)  On my way to play megaball… 

Have you won anything lately?

What's the coolest thing you've ever won?

I always seem to win in streaks like that too! Not a big fan of John, something about him rubs me wrong. Finale was good, but the format seemed kinda awkward last night. As always, I look forward to another season & happy to see Dolvett will be a part again.

Jen said...

Jess - I wasn't a huge John fan either but he did what he had to do. And by the end of the finale he grew on me a little more.

Can't wait for the new season!

Jennifer Small said...

You know, this is the first season in years I did not watch. Not even a single episode.

Congrats on WINNING! you are totally awesome :)

Congrats on all your winning Jen! I watched the BL finale too and I knew it wasn't even going to be close once I saw how small John was.

Jason said...

I picked John from the beginning as my guy because of his competitive nature. He said he was going to win and he set out to do it and I loved that. He had a goal and nothing was going to stop him. I just hope that now that the show is over that he continues to stay in shape and I think he will. Especially because of the LA Marathon which I did not know about so thank you for enlightening me about that.

Congrats on all the winning. You are just rocking right now and let's keep that momentum into the new year!
