So I recently discovered this show on A&E, and I'm wondering how you all feel about it. I like it because it shows fat people that being fat is entirely in their control when the trainers lose all the weight they've gained. However, I can't imagine ever trying to gain 50 pounds on purpose ike these trainers choose to do.
I also have a rant about episode 9 with Seth/Dave:
Dave mentions that he was in the Army basically every chance he gets in this show. How can you be so moto that you pine over the military career that you could have had every day, keep all your uniforms, keep a high and tight, etc. but you weren't moto enough to put down the fork while you were in in order to stay in? I mean, the Army has the easiest fitness standards! They also give you multiple chances to get your act together.
He also mentions that he regrets choosing to leave the service. Fatty, you didn't choose to leave. You got kicked out. It was your "choice" just like a four star with a DUI "chooses to retire". I hate the vets that act like this. They brought shame on the military when they wear the uniform, and they can't let it go because it was the one time in their life they did something resembling meaning. It seems like only fat vets try to tell you that their a vet every chance they get.
Lastly, how in the hell is getting kicked out for busting tape an honorable discharge? When you join, you know you have certain fitness standards that you have to maintain. How is some fatty who chooses to eat so much that they're overweight any different than the guys that pop positive on drug tests or get a DUI? They're all choices, and they all know it's against the standards. It should be a less than honorable just like the latter two.
