Wow what a tough call! What does John say? Does he really want you there supporting him with this, or is he understanding that TBL is something really important to you? He has other friends going there with him? TBL would be an awesome opportunity in itself, but I can't imagine anything more romantic than a trip to the south of France! You have to do what feels right. I tell my kids, "follow your heart with right and wrong, follow your head with love". I hope they call you for the show right away and say it starts filming at the end of June!

For those of you supporting the "France Idea"

remember she can always join up w/John should the biggest loser not go through.

MORE importantly You should all know something.

Penni has already given several & I mean several of her years up to support John in his own personal Quest for his film. She has traveled the US by his side & has been there for him high or low. All she has ever done is give.

The biggest loser is finally something for her.

Not for her kids, not for John

but gosh darn it finally something for her!

Most importantly she won't even know if its an option until she sends in her tape & gets picked.

As for knowing how many tryout for the show- she is a grown woman - OF COURSE SHE KNOWS THERE ARE THOUSANDS THAT TRY OUT. Give me a break.:)

On the flip side what many don't realize is that none of the others appling for the show are "PENNI!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

She has made a decision now lets all support what ever she does!

:clap2: :clap2: :clap2: GO PENNI GO PENNI GO PENNI :clap2: :clap2: :clap2:

What difference does it make how many apply anyway? I am applying with an open mind and an open heart and whatever comes will come. I am not going into this with my eyes shut or veiled. I know that I have a one in a million shot. SO WHAT? As Christina so eloquently put it "I won't know till I apply". I couldn't live with the "WHAT IF?" So I am applying.

I am doing my video this week. Most likely tomorrow.

Honestly Penni, I would talk to my doctor about it! I would definitely send in my application for it (cause you would surely rock!!), then have a heart to heart with your doc. See what he/she thinks. If you have back issues, they may be irritated or worsened by the grueling tests. Your doctor can advise you better!

As for Cannes, how long are you supposed to be gone? If it is only a weekend, that is SO doable!! I would never give up a chance to go ANYWHERE (except Alabama, which is where I AM - hehe) Cannes will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and you shouldn't plan on missing it!

I am sure that TBL doesn't not intend to have you sit at home waiting for them - I agree with the call-forwarding idea, and, hey, maybe they could inform you at Cannes - - imagine what that would do for the ratings on the show!!! I know, in your video, bring up the whole Cannes thing, and how you would miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance in order to compete on TBL!!!!

Let us know your final answer!!!

I am shooting the Video today and tomorrow. Then gonna do some tweaking next week then ship it off to the Producers.

My sciatica stays under control if I don't aggravate it. I have talked to my PCP and he is all for it. He said I don't see why you couldn't do it.

I saw Billy yesterday and got a clean bill of health from him as well. I didn't discuss Biggest Loser with him cause I forgot. But I don't see any reason he would object to it.

The producers will contact both of them anyway so if there is a problem it will come out then.

Great idea to talk about giving up Cannes to do this. Thanks!

As a matter of fact, thank you to everyone that offered suggestions.

Congrats on choosing the Biggest Loser! I agree you have to at least apply and see what happens, you should never live with the "What If's" and like everyone you can always still go to Cannes and fly back if your picked, but this way you are still doing something for you and still supporting John. Sounds like the best of both and I wish you luck in being picked and will be cheering for you!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
