´The Biggest Loser´: A warning from
someone who´s been there

CNN, by S.E. Cupp

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 2/10/2014 10:50:20 AM

This year, on the 15th season of NBC´s weight-loss show "The Biggest Loser," Rachel Frederickson did exactly what the show producers, the celebrity trainers and the audience asked her to: She lost the most weight. She lost so much weight, in fact, that many have decided she is now unhealthily thin. Jaws dropped at her final weigh-in. Social media exploded. At 5-foot-4 and 105 pounds, her body mass index is below what the National Institutes of Health considers healthy. I won´t speculate on her health. That´s for a doctor to determine, and hopefully she´s regularly seeing one. She says she´s "never felt

As someone who´s struggled with my weight, I was appalled to see what she looked like. Yes she won the money, but to lose 59% of your body weight in 6 months can´t be healthy. In the past, common sense contestants dropped out of competition when they achieved their healthy weight,and this doesn´t reflect well on the show.

105 pounds for her height isn´t exactly emaciated. Especially if she has a small frame. BMI is not an accurate indication of weight as it doesn´t take bone mass into consideration.

Good advice from Sarah Elizabeth. A reminder to all of us that anything that yields pleasure or euphoria is potentially addictive. The mind is inherently a pleasure-seeking machine: it´s not what neurons do, it´s what do neurons want.

Yes, she´s thin, but I wouldn´t call her anorexically thin. She certainly doesn´t need to lose any more weight, and could probably stand to gain 5#. But if you look at pictures of average, everyday people in the 1960s, most were nearly that thin. As long as she is healthy, she´s fine.

Thanks, S.E.! Good words on maintaining your sanity, as well as your weight. As #3 said, the mind is a terrible thing; it can drive you to do things that are extremely unhealthy for the body.

Leave. Her. Alone.

What does her doctor say? She doesn´t need the media barnacles telling her what is right FOR HER.

A few decades ago when I was doing aerobics almost daily, my weight dropped to 119. It then inched up to 126. I wss very healthy.

She has not always been fat. Appears to have gone back to something resembling normal for her build. She does NOT look anorex. Those who throw that term around with reckless abandon have probably never seen the real thing.

This whole kerfuffle is silly.

The green-eyed hydra raises its ugly head. Envy, jealousy are terrible sins. Worse when committed publicly by media types and "others".

She got that bar up pretty high, didn´t she...

We have become a nation of fatties. Women´s "normal" sizes have gone up.

As for men ringing in here, attempting comparison, women are different. They are not small men.

She looked fine to me. She didn´t before when she was carrying multiple rolls of blubber.

We got a full blown fascist takeover of our goobernment, our healthcare system in meltdown, the most unproductive populace in US history all CNN can worry about is whether some chick isn´t eating enough for CNN´s satisfaction. She isn’t eating goose liver, drink big soda pops or feasting on fast foods. In other words she is the perfectly control citizen based on fascist desires. Yet she is attacked by CNN cause she isn’t eating goose lovers, drinking big soda pops or gulping down fast foods. This is beyond silly.

PS.

Rush University Medical Center has this to say about Ideal Weight for her height:

5´ 4" 108 - 132 lbs.

http://www.rush.edu/rumc/page-1108048103230.html

If she was 5´3, that low end would drop to 104. So based upon 5´4, we are going to quibble over 3 lbs?

Be serious.

OK, I´m a guy, struggling with a few pounds myself. My wife has serious health issues and has lost a lot of weight over the years. She is currently under 115# at 5´10". She sees FAT everywhere when she has NONE. Eating disorders aren´t ALL psychological, she has physical issues as well. Her frame can´t handle this low weight and I can´t do much, she "shuts down" the more I try to help... I DO NOT UNDERSTAND THIS, since I am not a woman...

Vote to Hold Lois Lerner in Contempt of
Congress Scheduled for Next Thursday
Breitbart Instablog, by John Sexton    Original Article
Posted By: drive- 4/4/2014 1:52:35 PM     Post Reply
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced yesterday that it will hold a vote to decide whether former I.R.S. employee Lois Lerner is in contempt of Congress on Thursday, April 10th. Lerner has twice been called before Congress to testify about her involvement in the inappropriate targeting of conservative 501(c)(4) groups for extra scrutiny. On both occasions Lerner asserted her 5th amendment right not to testify. Rep. Issa and other Republicans on the Committee have maintained that Lerner waived her right not to testify when, during her first appearance before the Committee back in 2013, she made a speech proclaiming her

The Obama administration has made it increasingly difficult for Congress and inspectors general to uncover government misdeeds and access information in various agencies, according to recent congressional testimony and reports. On Thursday, Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz testified before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing that Attorney General Eric Holder stonewalled his investigation of the “Operation Fast and Furious” gunwalking scandal. Mr. Horowitz also said his office has been stymied in other investigations of the Justice Department because of the Obama administration’s interpretation of access laws, which essentially requires investigators to ask department heads for permission to investigate them. “For a review

Hypersensitive students and professors all over the country are about to score another victory for political correctness if they succeed in their mission to normalize the use of “trigger warnings,” which are intended to protect people from taking part in class discussions and media that might offend them. Trigger warnings are most commonly attached to online news articles and blog posts. They warn readers that the post contains specific, offensive content. An article about sexual violence, for instance, might come with a trigger warning for rape victims. The idea is to prevent post traumatic stress.

There’s a scene in P.G. Wodehouse’s Right Ho, Jeeves where Bertie Wooster receives a telegram from his fearsome Aunt Dahlia that reads: “Come at once.” Bertie is puzzled. He reflects and agonizes and sends several follow-up telegrams requesting more lucid instruction. Finally he shows the cable to his perceptive manservant Jeeves and asks him to translate. “I think Mrs. Travers wants you to come at once, sir,” Jeeves says. Sometimes it seems like the liberal base of the Democratic Party has a similar problem. They’ve been saying for decades: “We want Medicare for all.” Senior Democrats furrow their brows and ruminate, they

WASHINGTON — From Boston proud to Boston crass. Boston Red Sox superstar slugger David Ortiz took a selfie with President Barack Obama on Tuesday, jumping in with his cellphone moments before the official White House photo op to honor the World Series champs. “What an honor! Thanks for the #selfie, @BarackObama,” @davidortiz tweeted. By Wednesday night, the pic had 40,478 retweets and 46,765 favorites. Ortiz, it turns out, was not just a guy at the White House getting an insiders tour — because Ortiz just signed an endorsement deal with Samsung, the cellphone maker.

A Michigan mother of five says that the crushing new costs associated with Obamacare have imperiled her family’s financial future and will burden the household with thousands of dollars in unexpected expenses. The uptick in costs that Shannon Wendt and her family will face in the coming years under President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act will strain the family’s finances and force both Shannon and her husband to work harder to bridge the fiscal gap. Wendt initially decided to discuss her plight in an ad produced by the advocacy group Americans for Prosperity, which has chronicled the negative impact of Obamacare on

WASHINGTON — In July 2010, Joe McSpedon, a U.S. government official, flew to Barcelona to put the final touches on a secret plan to build a social media project aimed at undermining Cuba´s communist government. McSpedon and his team of high-tech contractors had come in from Costa Rica and Nicaragua, Washington and Denver. Their mission: to launch a messaging network that could reach hundreds of thousands of Cubans. To hide the network from the Cuban government, they would set up a byzantine system of front companies using a Cayman Islands bank account, and recruit unsuspecting executives who would not be

Supreme Court Strikes Down
Overall Political Donation Cap

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday continued its abolition of limits on election spending, striking down a decades-old cap on the total amount any individual can contribute to federal candidates in a two-year election cycle. The ruling, issued near the start of a campaign season, will very likely increase the role money plays in American politics. The 5-to-4 decision, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority, echoed Citizens United, the 2010 decision that struck down limits on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions. Wednesday’s decision seemed to alter campaign finance law in subtle but important ways, notably by limiting

Earlier in the week, Twitter was ablaze with a debate over Obamacare and public opinion: Was the Washington Post/ABC News poll purporting to show the law´s approval slightly above water an outlier, or the beginning of a trend? I argued the former, citing a fresh CBS News survey that aligned with previous negative polling. The latest Quinnipiac poll should settle the debate. It pegs President Obama´s approval rating underwater at 42/50, with Obamacare clocking in at 41/55. A few additional findings: (1) Voters split roughly evenly on the generic Congressional ballot, with independents leaning toward the GOP by seven points.

Obamacare will cost large companies between $4,800 and $5,900 more per employee and add hundreds of millions to their overhead, according to a new survey. The American Health Policy Institute conducted a confidential survey of 100 large employers—those with 10,000 or more employees—asking what costs they expect to incur from Obamacare over the next decade. Factoring in the health care law’s added mandates, fees, and regulatory burdens, employers anticipate cost hikes between $163 million and $200 million in 2016, a 4.3 percent increase. By 2023, employers will be paying 8.4 percent more than “what they would otherwise be spending” for

Democratic lawmakers and campaign finance reform advocates quickly bashed Wednesday’s Supreme Court decision to strike down total limits on individual campaign contributions, warning of future corruption in elections. Meanwhile, Republicans largely cheered the ruling from the narrowly divided court, which found it unconstitutional to impose caps on the aggregate amounts that one person can donate to campaigns, parties and political action committees. Calling himself “all for freedom,” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday commended the ruling, saying “donors ought to have the freedom to give what they want to give."

The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million.

Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

"My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it
