Can a girl win Biggest Loser?!?

So I know many of you women have the same issue as I do... You work your butt off for weeks sometimes months and all you lose are maybe a couple of inches- sometimes as much a a whole pant size after lots and lots of hard work. All of this while the men in your life change one simple thing such as not drinking soda and they drop 15 pounds in 2 weeks.. So not Fair!!! Anyways I have been watching the Biggest Loser for a couple of seasons now and it is no wonder that a woman has never won... they have to work 10 times harder for comparable results.
Well this season there is some stiff competition between Ali and the boys. Ali dropped 99 pounds during her time on the show and is the first real woman contender to win the whole thing.. The finale is tonight and for any of you that get a chance to watch I am sure that you will be just as amazed as I am at the before and after of these people.
Below are some picures of the final four contestants... Can you believe how much their whole life has changed by losing all of this weight??? I am inspired every season as I watch these people become beautiful butterflies who have been stuck in the "cacoons" for who knows how long...

Holy crap! I haven't watched this, but, Ali looks AMAZING! I loved how you said they are butterflies who were hidden away...so true. It is so not fair that guys can loose pounds so easily. Jeremy dropped 20 lbs. in Africa just cuz he hated the food and ate small portions all day long. I ate the same amount, but since I stopped exercising every day (like I had been doing) I packed on 10 lbs.! ARRGGHHHH....These people on this show are inspiring, to say the least!

Yea, those pictures are crazy! I keep hearing how great that show is, but I haven't watched it yet.

Tomorrow...thanks for thinking of me! Dan has an elder's quorum activity (with Stu), so I will have all the kids. I can't imagine Dawn being too excited about my three little ones invading her party. So, I better not. But, you should stop by and see me anyway!

So I didn't watch this show but I did see that Ali ended up winning and damn she looked good. We need to start going to the high school again and running or walking in Jodi's case!!
