    I also mistook the braided boy for a girl.

    Gotta add, though, that when Dr. Now was in her hospital room talking to her, she had her hands/arms under the covers that kept moving in a region that just looked completely inappropriate. I'm sure she wouldn't have been able to reach that to do what it looked like she was doing, BUT I just kept yelling at the TV, put your arms on top of the covers. Don't be disrespecting Dr. Now like that.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    That helps, actually. Thank you. I've never truly attempted to seriously lose weight. But I seem to have gotten sluggish over the last few years -- late 40s into now 51. And I'm at the point now I would love to drop 40 and I find that I was a bit lost because I surely cannot put myself into the category of these folks -- but their success is exciting. So I guess it's kind of a sliding scale by size.

    Season 8: Speculation and Spoilers Discussion

    This show has ruined me on weight loss. For Lent, I gave up junk food and sweets. But then I decided that while I was at it, I was going to throw in carbs as well (but that part was not for the Lord because a few get in). Anyway, I found myself disappointed that I only lost 16 pounds. I actually said to friends, the 600-pounders can drop anywhere from 50 to 100 plus pounds in a month. I was bummed. I didn't go quite as strict as Dr. Now. I still continued to drink my Diet Rite (won't give that up for anybody). But I guess my loss was pretty good because I don't need to lose a lot. So this weekend I'm taking a break and I must have pizza, chocolate, mashed potatoes, Doritos and my chocolate peanut butter pie. Then I think I'm good to go back to it and see what more I can accomplish.

    I don't really believe that's the reason he left. She proved from day one that her losing weight was not exactly a real threat to their relationship. And I suspect that most of these boyfriends are there for the caregiver money. That way they get paid for not doing an actual job -- at least not 40 hours.

    I like a train wreck as much as anybody. But good God, the amount of train wrecks this season is just pissing me off. The show should be required to tell us before we invest two freaking hours that the show you are about to see is a complete waste of time in this particular fatty. I can't get these two hours back -- or should I say about 12 hours of wasted space this season.

    Tonight is a good night to watch this with today being the start of Lent. I went to a hospital office today and they had a scale in the bathroom. Lordy, Lordy. I decided to give up junk food and sweets (which I often do for Lent). And I figured since I'm going that far, I might as well just get rid of the carbs, too. Carbs is not part of the Lent thing cuz there's no way I can give them up entirely, but the rest I won't cheat on if I'm doing it in the name of the Lord. The show is going to be a good re-enforcer.

    I'm still trying to figure out when they say something as stupid as, "I SACRIFICED everything to be here/to do this." WHAT exactly did you sacrifice? Sitting on your ass doing nothing all day? Your big social life back home? WHAT exactly did you sacrifice?

    The weather ruined knocked out my DirecTV last week, so this is my first time watching the second hour. This chick is HORRIBLE. Wow. What a miserable spoiled snotty brat. Cannot stand her. And I applaud Christian for sticking around even as long as he did. I wonder if Dr. Now and his staff enjoyed her little tantrum in the exam room. You know they could hear it throughout the entire office and probably loved it.

    S23.E08: Week 8: Hometown Dates

    So what do you do if they only have one butter plate on the table? Can you imagine having to ask them to pass the butter 17 times just so you can get through dinner?

    Has anybody who didn't get a one-on-one date ever even made it to hometowns?

    S23.E03: Week 3

    I had Lasix 20 years ago when it was still $2500 per eye and still relatively new. Of course, I could never wear contact lenses because I had astigmatism (before they made contacts for that). Never regretted a day of it. I'm 51 now and I still don't need reading glasses.

    I don't think Dad will need to stay the whole 12 months. I remember LB sent his momma home once he was able to care for himself.

    I'm betting we know who this season's 2 on 1 date winners are going to be.

    They always show them cheating and shoveling it all in. Why didn't they not this time? Clearly, she's a big fat cheater.
