Sam and Stephanie???

Ok, I have to ask...am I the only one who didn't see that surprise coming on Biggest Loser last night? Sam and Steph are together?? How did I miss that??
This is the first season I've watched BL. I am an admitted TV snob. I don't watch any one show every week. I hate when people come into work talking about their favorite show because I never know what the heck they are talking about, who these people are and how watching TV is bettering anyones life.
Between working full time and my family I go home after work to eat dinner, exercise, pack lunches for the next day, pick out clothes for the next day, review homework with the kids, MAYBE spend a few minutes reconnecting with my husband and start it all over the next morning at 5 AM. Not alot of time left for watching TV. But this wasn't the point.....
I like watching BL since I started my own weight loss journey because it makes me believe that if they can do it, I can too. I watch the "last chance workouts" in awe of the physical and mental strength it takes to accomplish that.
I was so sad last night to see Sam go home. I adore him, well the person he appears to be on TV. I nearly fell out of bed when he said that he and Steph were now living together. I didn't see that coming!! I'll admit it, I felt a tear roll down my cheek when Sam described the true happiness he feels now. Of course in typical Julie style I ran downstairs to tell my husband of the shows events. As I rambled on and on about how happy I was for Sam and Steph my husband was looking at me like I had finally lost my mind and it was time to call in the man with the straight jacket! I was talking as if I knew them personnally! I decided right then and there to NOT be a TV snob anymore. I can't judge others if I'm going to get all mushy over BL!!
I don't believe that weight loss leads to happiness in all areas in ones life but I do believe that self love leads to happiness. I'm working on self love and you know what?? I'm getting there!!!
