My only comments for Week 9 are reserved for what happened at the very end of the episode. When Daniel was sent home, he visits his old friend David from The Biggest Loser Season 6
Here is the conversation (not quite word for word, but pretty close) that Daniel has between his now much heavier friend David from Season 6:
Daniel “So what’s going on with you, where’s your head at like weight loss wise?”
David: “I have other things going on that are more important to me right now. i’m overweight, yeah, i’m a big guy”
Daniel: Not a priority?
David: Not right now. I don’t feel the unhealthy. Ya know, I don’t feel it. You know, when it does, when that changes, then I’ll start losing it”
(Daniel’s Comments for a little bit, then David Continues…)
David: I know I can do it, I just gotta make that decision to do it.
Daniel: What do you think keeps you from making it now?
David: I’m just taking some time to relax and working every day. You know, I’ll lose it eventually.
Is it possible to actually be so extremely lazy/tired/unintelligent that you would rather choose to die rather than live?
That’s exactly what Season 6 contestant David is doing. How is his own life not a priority to him right now? Is eating healthy and working out so terrible that you would rather just deny your current situation and decide you would rather be 6 feet under rather than walking among the living? Really? Your job isn’t more important, and the fact that he says he doesn’t “feel the unhealthy” is an absolute lie. Every day he looks in the mirror is a reminder of how he is killing himself with choices he made – with each meal and with each day that goes by that he doesn’t chose to exercise.
He said it himself, folks. “I just gotta make that decision”. Yes, he is making the CHOICE to be the way he is. Sad, but we all have a Choice of whether or not we are going to be healthy or not.
You can tell David tried to lose weight on the Biggest Loser Season 6 because he is “supposed to” or because “I’m fat” or perhaps because of the prize. He needs to realize that he needs to lose weight because he NEEDS to if he wants to live. Again, it’s a Choice. Nobody is force feeding him or chaining him down so he can’t find a gym.
I choose to live. You?
