Biggest Loser Finale ~ 10 Things we Loved and Learned

The finale of season 13 of the Biggest Loser aired last week on NBC and the world has been buzzing ever since.   Truthfully, we saw it on Hulu over the weekend because we were so busy but still enjoyed it to the fullest.

This season was about “No Excuses” and definitely was filled with drama as 4 people quit and relationships were put to the test.   We wanted to share our thoughts about the finale, especially the 10 things that we learned and loved from the show and the contestants.

  1.  You can’t win if you’re not in the game.

We know that there are various reasons that caused four people to drop out of the contest that may or may not be justified, but in the end you have to be in it to win it.  They were not mentioned or given must attention and that’s testimony to the importance of sticking to it.

2.  You can compete against yourself….and win!

Mike lost 160 lbs (a whole person) while at home to emerge a winner of $100,000!  This shows us that even if you do not have the advantages of the bright lights and attention of the show, you can set your own goals and still triumph.

3.  1 pound makes a difference

When Emily took the lead among the semi-finalists by losing just one more pound than the current leader, it reminded us that every little bit counts.  Often it takes us making sacrifices at various meals or working out over several days just to lose 1 lb, so it better count!

    4,  You can find your ultimate cheerleader in your mom or child

When Conna took the stage and the spotlight shifted to her sweet daughter, Brooklyn, you couldn’t help but see the inspiration that they found in each other.  Just by being in the game, Conna is showing her daughter the importance of taking care of her health and herself.  Brooklyn is also showing that unconditional love can make you a winner no matter what.

5.  “It means the world to me that I saved my life.” – Gail

Gail deserved her standing ovation for her persistently positive spirit and charming grace under pressure.  She did not win the at-home challenge or anything fancy but became her own hero in taking control of her health even at her advanced age.
