I'm trying to figure out if watching three hours of The Biggest Loser is the best or worst diet plan in the world. On the one hand, it is inspiring to see people shed these pounds. On the other hand, it sort of sucks that someone who won as many challenges and lost as much weight as Tara (or even Mike) did, has their accomplishments immediately dismissed as not good enough because they didn't lose the most insane amount of weight ever. The whole thing kind of makes me want to eat a cookie. Anyway, there's some other news out there happening, while I sit and ponder this weighty issue.
