Can Jillian have people on her show that are 35-45 lbs overweight?

It would be nice to feature people that are 40 or 50 pounds overweight. I watch the show, but can't connect. Being 100 lbs overweight just isn't the way most peope are. When I was married I weighted 118, now I weight 180. I am a heart patient and doctors tell me need to loose 35-45 pounds. It's hard. I don't know why I lose 4 and gain 5! I am so frustrated. One time, feature someone with similar problems!

I'm sorry, but you seem to be mistaken. Quite a lot of people really ARE that overweight, myself included. I weighed 120 in high school, I'm over 300 now. I enjoyed being big for quite a while, as it forced me to rethink my self-image. Now it has become a legitimate problem, so I'm looking into weight-loss tactics. About the added weight- You gain 5 pounds because you're adding muscle mass when you burn fat, or so I was told... Anyway, the point of the BL show is to see who can lose the MOST weight the fastest, hence the title. I wouldn't think that people who are less than 100 lbs. over would qualify. I suggest workout tapes from the 80's, though. Richard Simmons used to feature women who were just slightly pudgy instead of obese. I don't know if he's still in business, though. I hope this answer has been helpful, and apologize if it was offensive.
