Helen Wins Biggest Loser

Helen Phillips, the fighting 55 year old, won this year’s Biggest Loser. Helen dropped an impressive 140…yes, 140 pounds to take the title!  Congratulations!

Looking good!

Helen beat out Mike and Tara, who both lost impressive numbers, as well.
All I can say is that I am happy Ron didn’t win!  I am sorry folks, but he should have gone home to do his workouts with his son.  I respect the man for fighting through his injuries, but I think other people deserved to stay on the ranch longer.

I was anxious to see how the finalists did, but even more anxious to see how the tumultuous gray team did!

Joelle and Carla certainly had it out…with each other!  I have to say though, that they both did well, especially Carla.  Considering she was barely on the ranch at all, she did a great job at home!  Get it ladies!

After...job well done!

The only contestants that didn’t seem to make a dent in their weight are the orange team.  I’ll post the pictures below, and you will see how difficult it is to determine which are the before and which are the after.  I hope they bring them back for another season.  I really want to see them succeed!

Can’t wait for next season!

I am in love with Hungry Girl! I received two of her recipe books, and I have to say I am quite impressed.

Her pumpkin pie oatmeal is to die for!

2 T canned pumpkin

1 T sugar free maple syrup

dash splenda

1/4t pumpkin pie spice

2T Cool Whip Lite

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup vanilla soymilk fat free

1/4 Fiber One (original) cereal

Mix it all up, put it in the microwave and get to eating! Let me know how you like it.  Sometimes it tends to be too much for me to eat…
