Biggest Loser US season 8

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

I was in tears yesterday watching The Biggest Loser and it was all because of this woman..... Abby

Abby is one of the contestants on season 8 of the US show and what she has been through is horrific.  At the moment she has a stress fracture in her tibia and her reply was "that's not devastating"........"I have lived my worst nightmare."  Abby went on to explain how she lost her husband, her 5 year old daughter and her 2 week old son.  They had been killed in a car accident by "some guy going over 100 miles per hour."

I honestly don't know how she got through that day, and the fact she manages to get up at all every day is amazing to me.  Abby said "I got through it, I did what I had to do that day", she just takes it one day at a time.  She also said "I want to feel better physically now"...."if I can get up and exercise each day, anyone can."  She is so right!

If a woman who has lived through her "worst nightmare" can get up and out of bed everyday to go and exercise, then anybody can and that includes me.  My silly, little, insignificant flu is nothing compared to what she has been through and even though I feel like total crapolla, that feeling can not and never will compare with losing your whole family.   

If Abby can find the strength to just get out of bed each morning then there is nothing, absolutely nothing stopping me from getting up and exercising.


  1. I always sob whenever I hear her story!! She is certainly an inspiration!!

  2. WOW - that is amazing. I am always admiring of people who have the strength to continue after such tragic events.

    Have a great day and good luck with your exercising !


  3. I'm in tears. Bless her heart!!!

  4. Her story is so amazing. Makes me put all my little "problems" into perspective!

  5. Her story definitely does put things into perspective and make me very grateful. I can't even imagine going through that.

    i hope you heal and feel better quickly.

  6. I so find people like that incredible - I would have been a sobbing mess if I had seen it. Hope that you are on the up and up. xx

  7. I can't believe that story...that is absolutely devastating. I don't know what I would do if that happened to me. She is an inspiration for sure!

  8. I love her story. She's an amazing inspiration. I can't even begin to imagine what she's gone through.
