The Biggest Loser

Thursday, January 07, 2010

So I watched the biggest loser last night for the first time.

It was a homework assignment emoticon

I was an emotional wreck. I found myself getting choked up around every corner of the show. Anybody else have that same reaction? It was heartbreaking to watch. Most likely because I can completely relate to the embarrassment of a weight problem. In the last ten years and after a baby I have really, really struggled. So much so that at one point I realized I was isolating myself and not wanting to go anywhere. I didn't want anyone to see me. I then began to notice that I was in very few pictures with my little boy. Then...one day he noticed it. It was crushing.

I am so happy I finally made the leap and became active in Spark People. The support is better than I could have ever imagined. It is amazing.

Thank you - Thank you - Thank you.

    Oh I can relate to isolating yourself and staying out of pictures. I feel the same way, which is why I'm here. My mom died when she was 38. Very suddenly and unrelated to weight. But the reality of a short life is a very real one to me so the idea of not living it- or not leaving enough record of it for my children- is hard to swallow...especially because of my own choices. I am trying to force myself to live and get out in spite of myself. Just today I was thinking of how I wanted to go on a vacation with my husband but then I didn't want to be in pictures or didn't have things to wear etc. What an awful way to think and live!

    That is one thing about the Biggest Loser; it drudges up alot of feelings and emotion. I watch it faithfully. A website you should check out if you haven't is www.fittothefinish.com. I'm on her daily blogs and I love them. They are so motivating from an "I've been there" perspective. Have a great day!

    I've been watching TBL now for 5 years, and every time I end up with red puffy eyes after wards, Each persons life becomes more and more touching but 1/2 way through you realize that they are losing and reshaping there bodies and there life.

    And with that said, this is why a support group is so important to anyone who is trying to lose weight.

    I never thought about it until you posted this but you're right, I'm hardly in any pictures with my baby and tend to hover to the back even still hoping I don't get noticed. One day he'll notice too... Thanks for posting this you just gave me a new goal ;)
