Big A says I always get very involved in what I watch. It's true. I get really freaked out by scary movies because I'm so in to them. I get very much into The Biggest Loser in the same way; I just have my favorites and I want them to win. I dislike when something is unfair or someone is rude. I'm the sucker with my mouth wide open at a "shocker" that Big A saw coming a mile away.
All that to say, I was psyched when Amy & Marty Wolff from BL Season 3. I didn't watch Season 3 but they were on last year's Thanksgiving recap episode. I've read articles about them. So I wasn't as emotionally as involved but I was excited. THEN imagine my excitement when I see that Daniel Wright from Seasons 7 & 8 walking up to the stage at the spaghetti dinner the night before my half marathon over the weekend. THEN I got more excited as I saw Rebecca Meyer from Season 8 alongside! Rebecca was one of my favorites, eliminated Week 10 (I had to look this up to verify but I knew basically she went a long way). I loved the pink team of Amanda & Rebecca. So I was grinning like a little child in a candy store when they were up there talking.
I even won a little prize! They had a few prizes to give away. First question was which reality show has the most relationships attached to it. Of course, my hand was up first. It was Biggest Loser. I won a half-pound bag of runner's granola. I haven't tried it yet but I'm excited. It also showed who the biggest Biggest Loser freak was there: me!
Then they signed autographs afterward. I went up to talk. I got Rebecca's & Daniel's autographs. I would have talked to them forever (so nice), but there were other people who thought they needed to talk to them, too (read my sarcastic tone but really I could have talked forever).

I hugged Rebecca & Daniel - seriously they were very inspiring to me as I was on my weight loss journey shortly after their season aired. It meant a lot to me to talk to them and get to meet them. I didn't realize until I got home later that they are a couple - fun! They all ran the 10K the next day; I ran by Daniel long enough to say hi. And then I saw them after we'd finished (I'll write a recap of the race this week, no worries) and said hi again. Rebecca gave me a hug and told me congratulations. For real, she was so nice! I could be friends with that girl.
Anyway, this was such a big treat for me. I will be smiling for a long time about this, promise.
