People weren’t quite sure what to make of Lisa Mosley, as each week it seemed she was the only person at Biggest Loser fighting to get out while everyone else fought to stay in. Despite that, she was one of the most likable people on the show this season and put a lot of heart in to everything she did.
She explained that it wasn’t that she didn’t want to go through this journey at Biggest Loser, but that she “wanted to do it in a positive environment.” Lisa really struggled with the level of game play and manipulation that went on in the house, and admits that for most of her 10-week stay on Biggest Loser it wasn’t a positive experience. “The game play was hard to be around,” she said. Lisa was “disgusted” watching Rick and Adam go home, people she says were punished for their hard work instead of being rewarded. Then, she had what she calls a nervous breakdown on the scale and determined that she was going to do the things that worked for her, and things got a whole lot better.
Listen now as we chat with Lisa. She tells us what her daily meal plan looks like, noting that it’s the same every day which makes it easy to stick to. She also talks about the “surreal” experience of being a part of makeover week.
We’re just a few short weeks away from there premiere of Biggest Loser, beginning its 10th season September 21, 2010 on NBC. Already casting for season 11, it’s proof that this show is in the right place and right time as more and more Americans work to overcome the obesity epidemic that is plaguing young, old and everyone in between.
Each season the inspirational show, hosted once again by Alison Sweeney, takes overweight men and women and isolates them at the infamous Biggest Loser Ranch, located outside of Los Angeles, California. For several months (varying each season) contestants work side-by-side with esteemed trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper to lose weight, re-learn how to eat, and overcome the personal, emotional issues that have precluded them from living a healthy life before now.
While the Couples or Families versions of the show have become quite popular, pitting teams of two family members or friends against one another, season 10 goes back to the show’s roots with individuals competing against individuals.
For season 10, Biggest Loser is introducing the “pay it forward” theme – working to help these competing individuals as well as the communities from which they call home. The premiere episode shows trainers Bob and Jillian in seven hometowns for city-wide workouts. Amongst the crowd are three people vying for spots on the show, the two who finish the challenges first will become contestants.
