Boy, how the tables have turned. It is so amazing for me to sit back and watch Daniel compete in this season of The Biggest Loser. Last season, he was the heaviest contestant in Biggest Loser history. He was competing against people with athletic ability much greater than his own. What a difference a few months makes. He went from being an underdog last season to being a front-runner this season. He was the first one to cross the finish line in the one-mile race in the season premiere and won immunity this week. It is so amazing to watch and he really does send a great message. Despite your current circumstances, what you are up against, who you are today and who you were in the past, YOU CAN CHANGE! Daniel proves that to all of us.
I am really starting to get emotional watching this season. Not only because the players' stories are so fascinating but also because it brings up so many memories for me. Bob, Jillian, last-chance workouts, weigh-ins, eliminations. It all feels like a dream now. I felt like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and each person on the ranch was a character. Someone was the Scarecrow, The Cowardly Lion, The Tin Man and even the Wicked Witch of the West. Now that I have woken up I realize I have learned something special from each one of these characters.
