Irony - The biggest loser

Last night was the final episode of NBC's "The Biggest Loser." On this show contestants lose a tremendous amount of weight in a very short period of time. This year the Long Island TNT Cycle Team did their own variation on this where all the participants anted up $10 with the winner getting the pot to apply to their fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The winner on the television show this season lost 140 pounds. The at-home winner lost 177 pounds. On the TNT version there was a tie. Karen and the Rockstar led the pack losing a whopping 7.2, yes seven point two, pounds.

Seems like a rounding error compared to the show but losing a little is better than gaining weight. Since I'm sure that Karen worked harder than me, I recommended to the Schmoopmeister to give her the spoils of this contest to donate.

The good part of this show is that I'm lighter than some of "after" weights of the TV show contestants. I'm still on the road to right sizing and that road is a "long and winding road." Sounds like a good title to a song - wait to hear the piano close at the end.
