When talking with Michelle, season 6 winner of the Biggest Loser, one word repeatedly came to mind, “Incredible.” At finale she looked absolutely gorgeous, however I wanted to get at more than just her physical beauty, I instead wanted to focus on her inner strength. For those of us that religiously followed the show, we were able to see her inner strength gradually come out.

Having experienced the Biggest Loser first hand, I wanted to see how her experience transformed her mentally and emotionally. During our conversation she shared some really insightful things that the everyday viewer doesn’t always get a chance to hear, things like; how relationships in her life have changed, tips for maintaining her new found health, her future goals and endeavors, her relationship with Jillian and the Black Team, and most importantly her “Life Long Resolution”.

Congratulations Michelle, you are truly an inspiration to so many, as for all you “Biggest Loser” viewers be sure to tune in to Season 7 on January 6.

Bernie’s Biggest Loser Episode 12 Recap

Alright we are now officially down to the Final 4, Michelle, Ed, Heba and Vicky, and you can definitely feel the pressure the contestants are under throughout episode 12. This episode began with Michelle coming to terms that her mother Renee had just been voted off, and that she would now have to continue her weight loss journey on her own. We see the remaining Blue team members celebrating the fact that they had escaped elimination and all had a chance to be finalist.

As in every episode there is a ton of working out, but this week seemed different. There wasn’t any of the usual whining, or complaining, about the workouts, all contestants seemed to have only one goal in mind, “Becoming a Finalist.” I personally am impressed with the determination and dedication each contestant seemed to show this last week.

Bernie’s Biggest Loser Episode 11 Recap

“Whoohoo, Makeover!”, On Episode 11 contestants got to strut their slimmer stuff on the Tyra Banks show in New York City.  I feel the makeover show is one of the most powerful episodes that the Biggest Loser has every season. It allows contestants, as well as viewers, to see just how far they’ve come on their weight loss journey. That being said Ed, Heba, Vicky, Michelle, and Renee were whisked away for a shopping spree at Macy’s and treated to new hair styles at an incredible salon. The makeover episode is powerful in that it allows contestants the opportunity to realize that they can now shop off the rack, which for me was a tremendous personal victory. I would like to applaud each of the contestants on looking terrific!

After walking Tyra’s stage contestants were surprised by family members who flew out to New York to see their new and improved loved ones. While in New York contestants and family members decided to see the town and found themselves in the middle of Time Square, where Bob and Jillian miraculously appeared on a TV monitor. The Biggest Loser trainers congratulated contestants on their hot new look, but reminded them that they were still in the middle of a competition and that they had better spend their remaining time in the city working out. Contestants and their families took their trainers message to heart and the next day the blue team worked out at a newly opened 24 hour fitness, while the black team worked out in both Central Park and the Brooklyn Bridge.
