While the Biggest Loser is inspiring to many, it never really appealed to me. There just seemed to be something so plastic and gaudy about the show and its penchant for setting people against one another in the effort to lose weight.
So when I saw the promos for Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition, I was expecting much the same. For anyone who doesn’t remember the original Extreme Makeover franchise, it was all about plastic surgery and fashion accessories. Quite frankly, I wasn’t expecting anything inspiring. Boy, was I wrong!
From the first episode, this show has been focused on the individual without the degrading challenges like pulling cars. As someone whose dedicated to achieving a healthier lifestyle, it’s much appreciated.
