Maybe to satisfy some people, NBC should change the name of the show to "The Biggest Loser, Up To An Acceptable Range"

Perhaps she overshot the "idea" weight a bit in order to pocket $250,000. And people are surprised?? She can afford to buy some food now and put on maybe 10-15 lbs. and have a darn near perfect athletic body for 5'4" and her age. Good for her! Personally, I do not like the new normal (read chubby) - neither looking at it or paying into the health care system that "treats" it.

there is a big spread between emaciated and chubby - hope you aren't a smoker, bet you cost more than the chubby person nearest you
