I’ve watched the show for many years – sat on my ass eating ice cream or chips or popcorn or whatever and laughing because I’d never get “that big”
So the gym I belong to has started up a “Biggest Loser” contest. Same basic rules – weigh in once a week – biggest percentage of weight loss means that you win.
5 people including me signed up. I accidentally saw the other contestant’s weights. I outweigh them all by a minimum of 70lbs.
Stepped on that scale… the number is 278.2. That is a scary weight. That is the weight of the “heavier” girls on the TV show. I AM that big.
And I don’t have Bob and Jillian.
What I do have is a desire to get healthy – to enjoy my time with my boys, to go fishing with my hubby, to be able to shop off the regular sized racks in the stores.
The ISSC certified personal trainer in charge of this whole challenge is young. Cute and bubbly and looks and sounds all of 12. She’s never been fat in her life. She’s teeny tiny size zero type small. And she’s never heard of some of the major weight loss programs.
So while I will be checking in with her for the challenge – I will not be relying on her as a source of how to lose weight. I know how to lose weight – I just haven’t done it.
Now its time.
This is my journey to health. Thank you for joining me.
