H-O-L-Y C-O-W that was a great finale! It’s always my favorite part of the season.
I totally called it yesterday, I thought for sure Danny would win since he lost so much weight on his own for that 60 days. But, did I think he could get down to 191 pounds from 440?? Ummm…no! Where does all the skin go? Can it shrink that fast with such a big weight loss so quickly?
I thought Rebecca looked amazing, I thought Amanda looked good, but I thought she would have lost more, and Liz did great, although as soon as I saw her, I knew she wasn’t going to win.
Some surprises of course were Tracy, the one no one really liked. I still didn’t like her when she was skinny! What did you guys think of her transformation?
The thing that always shocks me the most is how much they lose. I think one of the reasons that these contestants do so great is that they are doing a ton of WEIGHT exercises as well as cardio. Weight training is the only thing that will change the shape of your body. If you do cardio alone, you will be smaller, but have the same shape.
I think that’s why they can change their WHOLE bodies so fast.
AND, I thought Shay did awesome. For having SO much weight to lose and still a lot to go I thought it was super generous that Subway would pay her $1,000 for each pound she loses from now until the finale of the next show which is in May, 2010!
