Thanks to watching The Biggest Loser last night, I think I finally figures out what I am doing wrong with weight loss. Two things actually. And it occurred to me that there are probably a lot of us who are struggling that are doing the same wrong things. So in the interest of the betterment of mankind, I will share. Ready ?
1. My scale does not make beeping sounds while it weighs. This part seems critical. Unless the scale beeps it does not know if it should stop on those bigger or smaller numbers, and therfore gets stuck. I think this Saturday I should have the guys either beep, hum or whistle to our scale while we weigh in. It will help.
2. I do not own a colored sports bra. It seems to be an important bit of equipment in the process. Notice the eliminated team last night were men, and neither of which wore a sports bra. Note to self- buy a florescent yellow one.
Needless to say I watched The Biggest Loser last night. I found myself cheering when I learned that the heaviest contestant to date was not only from my home town of Chicago, but an Italian American like my husband and son. Ah, the power of pasta and pizzas !!!!
I worked on my quilt as I watched and found myself talking back to the screen with some of the contestants. (Note- I have been overweight all my life, and not only have had several boyfriends but married . Your weight is NOT what is keeping you from meeting someone. Your belief in yourself is). I also made sarcastic comments about the opening challenge ( contestants will race on indoor stationary bikes because after last seasons fiasco we are afraid of potential lawsuits and want to save near death experiences for later in the season).
I am asking myself if you sit and heckle The Biggest Loser , is this a sign of weight loss burn out ???
