The Biggest Loser Show: Mabank

Many of you have  followed Abby Day Rike's story on the popular show, "The Biggest Loser". Well, she is from here and Abby and Jillian  came to our School earlier in the year and that episode will air Tuesday night.  I work at the school, so I was in the stands and my son was on the gym floor, at half court, so it will be fun to look for him. Of course I know most of the kids, and especially the one they interviewed.  Abby's parents have been members of my church a long time and I remember them bringing their beautiful red headed grand daughter with them to church. Abby's tragedy touched our town and now so many others. Abby is the only contestant I know of, that Jillian didn't go off on. That day of the taping she even said Abby was helping her with the cussing.  I haven't watched this season, but I will watch Tuesday. It was interesting seeing the behind the scenes stuff that went on while they were taping. 

Oh, by the way, we had a tornado last night, but we are all fine!

Will definitely have to tune in! Thank goodness you are safe... all I heard on the radio yesterday was about the devastation of those tornadoes.

That season was so weird. Abby was from Mabank and I knew Sean from working with him at RTD. Grandma still talks about Abby's daughter. She was always very sweet to the older ladies at church.
