    I just found out that my high school drama/debate teacher is going to be on The Biggest Loser this season. The preview is here: http://www.nbc.com/The_Biggest_Loser/video/clips/the-biggest-loser-preview/1142261/

    Her name is Abby, and she lost her entire family to a drunk driver three years ago. Her husband was driving home with her 5 year-old daughter and their 2-week old son when their car was hit by a drunk driver. All three of them were killed instantly. At the time, she was driving herself to the ER because she was sick, but didn't want her son exposed to the hospital germs. =X

    After that, she moved away, but has continued to teach. She is such an inspiration, and I'm so proud to see that she's on The Biggest Loser. If you watch the preview, she says that after losing her family, there HAS to be something out there for her to make a difference. And I certainly don't doubt it.

    I'm so sorry to hear about her loss, and I'll definitely be cheering for her!

    Are they going back to singles this season? If they are I definitely will watch. I didn't like the couples shows.

    It looks like they are sticking with the couples format. A shame, really. I like the singles approach better myself.

    Drunk driving infuriates me beyond words. My heart aches for this woman. I wish her the very, very best.

    Just that clip is inspirational...I look forward to the new season!

    I will be cheering for her also. That is my no. 1 show to watch even though I work on Tuesday nights. I catch the show when it replays on Sundays on the fine living channel. Can't wait
