As you all know, I'm always on the look out for uplifting programming about the real lives of people and weight loss. I found something really good on local TV! Live Big with Ali Vincent

I would like to think there is a happy middle ground.

Very interesting ideas. Some of that stuff I haven't thought about in a while. Part of me knows for a fact my life would have taken a different path if I had not been so over weight in high school. I think I would have had a better self esteem in college and that would have set me in a better direction post college. The weight was like a twisted ankle in my ability to get around in life. After college the weight was like a full body cast. I couldn't do a a thing physically or emotionally. After the problem exploded in my early 20's I was on a down ward path until I was 30. Its really hard to think about, but that's life.

Nothing really except that all the episodes to be online right away! I really like Ali. One of the episodes she tells a woman "I'm not a trainer, a nutritionist, or a doctor. I'm just a girl that has lost over a 100 and cares" I love the simple philosophy behind the show. :)

Very interesting. I haven't seen it yet but wondered, how is it different from the other weight loss shows?

I forgot to say... Ali was the gal on Biggest Loser in 2008 that was the first women winner. She was team pink with her mom Betty Sue. :)
