You didn't need to lose weight, you needed therapy...

All right, I will admit it- I have been sucked into the vortex that is reality TV.
Dangerous Catch? Love me some Sig Hansen.

Bridezillas? Had no problem understanding why some couples wound up in Bootcamp.

Toddlers and Tiaras? It is not pretty to watch me watch it. I sit there dumbfounded, mouth hanging open, did this lady really start a fist fight with a baby in her arms.

Then there is the new offering from Oxygen.

My Big Fat Revenge.

Have you seen the commercials?
Big women decide to lose weight.
Then go on national television and confront the people who were meanie heads.

Confront them.
On National Television.
Shout in their face, "Look at me"! "I am thinner, therefore, I am awesome".

Here is a great commentary on the series.
This is the closing line (love it)
"Oxygen would rather define revenge as “getting back at the people who made fun of you for not conforming to society’s beauty standards by finally conforming to said beauty standards,”

  • That's not only totally insane, it's a sad commentary on what motivates people. If a woman wants to lose weight so she can be more active and healthy, more power to her. But losing weight to conform to society's standards is hardly a good reason, and doing it so you can confront those who were mean in front of God and everybody on TV is just pathetic.
