The Biggest Loser Show- Why?
Wednesday, September 12, 2007
The Biggest Loser Season 4 started tonight, and that show motivates me so much. I even thought about going there, but I wouldn't want the world to see this body in spandex! LOL. But seriously, if those people, most weighing even more than me, can work that hard on a daily basis, in the desert heat no less, who am I to complain about having to do 15-30 minutes of cardio in my air-conditioned home 3-4 days a week??!!! It's just ludicrous to know that I'm so weak! Why can't I be as motivated and focused as those wonderful people on that show?? Why can't I do it? What is wrong with me??!!!! I'm so disgusting!
If you saw the show tonight, you saw the one girl on the blue team who lost 20 pounds in one week. 20 pounds in one week! I was so amazed... and JEALOUS! The best I ever did when making a diet change was losing six pounds in one week when I started Weight Watchers. Having a jump like that motivates me to keep with it, but I've been at this plateau for so long, that it's easy for me to just want to give up. The older I get, the more hopeless I feel, too.
My husband watches The Biggest Loser with my daughter and me, and I know what he's thinking. It's the only show he'll actually sit down long enough for to actually see a whole episode! I know he wishes that were me on there. The bottom line is, I need to do something to get back into the swing of the things, because quite honestly, my heart is just not 100% into it anymore. I've been down this road so many times, and frankly, the whole idea of dieting is a total downer for me now. However, no matter how I feel, I KNOW that I'm at a point in my life where I have no choice but to do it! (Damn those cookies-n-cream pop tarts!) Help me! I need some tips on how to stay motivated on this roller coaster ride when all I really want to do is get off at the next stop!!
