Every time I see the show, Jillian or Bob always encourages one of them to move past that old image they have of themselves and take a look at who they are and have become. This reminds me of the different types of counselors that we discussed early on in the semester. They are more then just training people to get in shape but also coaching them to become a better, stronger person mentally. They are also training there minds to take those bad recording out of there head that tells them that they aren't worth it, that they are insignificant, and to put new one in their head of yes they are worth it, and they are significant. They are the coach type that coaches them along, and encourages them (sometimes in strange ways, and very tough love) but they help change lives more then one pound at a time.

The Biggest Loser: Changing more then body Shapes
I LOVE the Biggest Loser. I wait around every week for Tuesday to come just to watch it. I love how these people sign themselves up to come on this show and just shed pounds every week. It is very exciting to me. But the biggest difference that they have is not in the percentage of wait loss they lose each week, but the difference that Jillian and Bob, are making in there lives. These people come in every season with different issues that they are facing, Low self-esteen, having no opinions, they are emotionally damaged a lot of the time, feeling insignificant--which is why a lot of them end up they way they are, overweight and unhappy. It is like a bad cycle that they play over and over.
