For someone who is NOT "morbidly obese" then 1-2 lbs. weight loss per week is recommended as "safe." The contestants on The Biggest Loser are not in that camp. When they get out of morbid obesity? It will be harder for them to lose weight quickly. Maintenance AFTER they lose the weight would be harder than the initial weight loss. It's good they are learning to lose weight. I hope they get taught "maintenance."

How are they continuing? imho It's about the overall goal based on the prior life experience.

It's not fun to be morbidly obese, and have a hard time doing something as basic as walking up a flight of stairs, or walk across a room and feeling like just breathing is difficult/labored.

This doesn't even cover what this does to someone's self-esteem.

The idea that someone could drop enough weight to breathe easier, drop their blood pressure and feel better about themselves, in a medically controlled and safe environment with trainers helping get to a healthy weight?

There is a lot of strength in the human spirit. They are still functioning because they WANT to be able to walk up stairs, walk across a room, and live longer by doing this. It's a small period of time of hard work and dedication, in order to get there.

That's my guess. As someone who dropped a lot of weight, and is glad to have done so? I think it's a good guess.
